Adding a banner with text in a X/T test

I am trying to add a Banner or a box with some text and color across the header of one of my experiences, basically the variation of the activity. I cannot see a way to do this when selecting the container of the page to add or replace with. Am I able to do this without having Adobe Scene 7 integrated? Keep in mind I am not swapping out an image, only adding a banner to the top of the page with new text and color to go with it. Any help would be great.

Here is how I would get this done:

1. Left click on the element.

2. Click on "Expand Selection" to get to the element you want to edit (Sometimes you will have to do this a few times) (See attached screenshot below.)

3. Once you have the element selected use the option under: Edit > Text/HTML to adjust text or change the actual HTML of the page to insert the new banner text etc. (See attached screenshot below)

Hope this helps!

Hey Mike,

This is very helpful. My client also has strict guidelines with font and brand color. What would be the easiest steps to select/upload these into Target vs what Adobe provides? Please see what the experiences for this test I am trying to create look like below and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Unfortunately you wouldn't upload the Font/color combo into target but you could create the offer by editing the actual HTML code so whatever you can code for in HTML you would be able to insert into Target.

If you will be using this offer a lot there is a way to save that piece of code that you are using to create the blue banner as a standalone code offer you can do that in Target from: "Offers > + Create" See screen-shot below.

Hope this helps!

Hey Mihnea,

Is there an easy way to do this without updating the HTML code for this offering as I do not have coding experience with HTML. Can I just edit the text and color along with creating the banner in the Target interface itself?

Thanks,

Jordan

The idea behind the Experience Composer is that it's an easy visual way to modify the existing content (Default Experience) to something new. If the banner were already there in a different color you could edit the banner however since it does not yet exits it will have to first be created. There is no UI functionality to allow you to insert and drag a banner. The two options to getting it in there woudl be to add it as html code or design it as an image and add the image. I did some looking around and found some sample HTML for banner code. It woudl need to be customized but it's a start: https://support.litmos.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001428953-Sample-HTML-Banner-code

Hope this helps!

That makes sense.  I was not aware as this is the first experience creating something new like this that is not in the original default experience. Currently, my client has Adobe Scene 7 integrated with Adobe Target. However, once I have final images/assets do I need to upload them into the content library in Target and they will be able to select once I am editing my experience? What is the best action to take for this?

Thanks,

Jordan

You can integrate Scene7 from inside of Target from: Setup > "Scene7 Settings" see attached screen-shot below. If you don't know the information to use in the required fields you can obtain it from the Scene7 Support team (s7support@adobe.com)

Hope this helps!

Thank you, Mihnea. When replacing background images will it be an easy swap of images that are within content library? Our client will be providing only jpeg images and no HTML code for these. I am already having difficulty maneuvering images around in both control and variation experiences currently within interface. Do you have any documentation of easy ways to do this? The shell of my campaigns are built, but I am struggling to create the experiences they have with their mock ups. Please see below for example. Or let me know if you would like to hop on a screen share if you are able to as I think that would be beneficial for me!

You can create either HTML or Image offer. There is some documentation on this here: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/target/target/c_manage_content.html If you run into any technical issue with Adobe Target and you are a supported user you can open a ticket by emailing us at ttclientcare@adobe.com however in this case this does not appear to be a product bug just an issue where you were given two jpegs to create an activity when a combination of images and code might have been most appropriate.

Unfortunately content editing and activity creation is not something we are able to do on your behalf. With that said I'll do my best to give you some guidance here. In this case it appears you have been provided with some static images for an idea of what they want the Control and Variation to look like.

Some points to make:

1. The two banner images seem to be different sizes. This is definitely not idea.

2. It would probably be a good idea to request the banner images on their own and make sure they are the same exact size. (Not sure if they are expecting you to do the editing to accomplish this or what?)

3. Additionally you could request that they provide you the code for the text content underneath the image that way you can save that as HTML Offer3 and add it below either image offer. (Once again not sure if this is something they can provide you with or if they expect that you will be able to create the code based on the image they have provided.)

With that said the above is the proper way to do this. The very quick and not ideal way to do this woudl be to copy/paste image1 and paste it on top of image2 in an image processor. Save that file as image Offer2.

Hope this helps you out!
