Good morning and thanks for taking time out of your day for us!

How do you handle tests where the numbers, be it audience, conversion rate or lift, are low and causes the test to take a long time? I'm talking years

@ShannonHamiltonPM Hello Shannon,  can you share best use cases for using automated personalization vs Auto-Target?  Also what are some of the new enhancements coming to Auto-Target that were just announced at Adobe's Digital Summit?

Hi Shannon,

 

How can we load target only on the AEM content pages? Currently we are injecting at.js from Adobe launch which is configured on every page. Though we dont need target on transaction heavy pages and want to control the loading of target on the page by authoring capabilities.

What is your recommendation and how can we achieve it?

@ShannonHamiltonPM

 

Hi thanks for doing this today Shannon. I'm a new user to Adobe Target. I went through AT Fundamentals training about 2 months ago.

 

Currently, I've been using the VEC to make edits for my A/B tests.

 

When does it make sense to use the form instead of VEC? Also how do form work with mbox or at.js?

Hi Shannon,

Do you recommend using Audience Library segments over profile scripts for Target? How do you decide which to use?

A little confused with the below feedback from Adobe - we want to present Geo specific  content on our AEM pages but the below says to use Target

 

ADOBE'S RECOMMENDATION:

 

If you have purchased Adobe Target and are able to create activities within Target we DO NOT recommend using AEM to build those activities.  Building targeted activities directly within AEM will most definitely lead to performance degradation on the instance because of the JS required to render the targeted content.  This will occur even if you have implemented redirects on your pages.  The instance may not be noticeably impacted at first, but over time after continuous targeted content authoring, performance degradation is inevitable.

 

The issue with the above is the logistics of doing Geo AND Tests on same pages

@ShannonHamiltonPM - Our company is fairly new to target.  Can you help with some use cases you've seen for using the scripting functionality in target?
