Adobe Campaign

Campaign provides functionality enabling the orchestration, launch and measurement of personalised cross-channel marketing campaigns to cause meaningful customer experiences.

Adobe Campaign has 6 main capabilities that help marketers do their work better. They are

  1. Integrated Customer Profile
  2. Targeted Segmentation
  3. Cross-Channel Campaign Orchestration
  4. Integrated Email and Mobile Design Capabilities
  5. Adobe Experience Cloud Integrations

These features are overlaid with Campaign Analysis and Reporting.

Integrated Customer Profile: allows you to manage your customers from a single location. You get a single accessible view of your customers and campaign interaction history made possible through the use of online and offline data sources and a consolidated data channels feature.

Targeted Segmentation: the ability to personalise experiences to each customer using targeted segmentation in Campaign is a key feature. Adobe Campaign Targeted Segmentation gives you the ability to create complex segmentation strategies in your cross-channel campaigns. Personalisation is critical to cross-channel campaigns and the heart of personalisation is the ability to segment and send targeted emails.

Adobe Segmented Targeting provides the ability to create test and control groups, align segments and perform personalisation at scale. There are inbuilt templates and workflows for targeted email personalisation.

Cross-Channel Campaign Orchestration: Campaign allows marketers to orchestrate messages in a single UI allowing for the creation and management of automated multi-channel campaigns. Campaign has a drag and drop interface, access to native email and mobile capabilities with a workflow.

Integrated Email and Mobile Design Capabilities: most organisations use different systems and more than one tool for their cross-channel strategy. This disparate approach in the real world creates problems which can hinder a single accessible profile and engender conflicting offers. To solve this Adobe Campaign has integrated mobile and email capabilities which helps with better opens, click-throughs and conversions and lower marketing costs. Also Included are the capabilities of personalised SMS and push notifications.

Adobe Target

Adobe Target provides manual and automated optimisation capabilities to determine targeted personalised experiences to different types of visitor population as they engage with your brand across digital channels.

For example, a commuter may view your brand content from their smartphone in the morning, then do the same whilst on their desktop at work and then receive an email which they download content from using a mobile app. The gap can also be bridged between mobile and internet-connected screens and devices by clicking through a store or airport kiosk or even receiving a personalised display within a cable box or gaming console.

Therefore, each of these digital interaction and touchpoints is an expression of your brand relationship with your customers, and the objective is to deliver the most satisfying, relevant personalised design, content and offers to provide the best brand experience for customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Adobe Target delivers personalised content using swift guided testing and automation to determine the right personalised content at the right time in customer journey. It is based on what we know at each point of a unified progressive visitor profile as well as what we determine through testing A/B) or automation. Automated personalisation is done in real time using machine learning.

Adobe Audience Manager

Adobe Audience Manager is a Data Management Platform (DMP).  A DMP enables the management and organisation of data, from both devices and channels.

First off let us define the three types of data that DMPs deal with:

1st Party Data: is data collected by you- your organisation. For example, CRM, POS, Mobile APP engagement, beacons, etc.

2nd Party Data: A partner’s 1st party data, e.g. data shared between a credit card company and a retailer.

3rd Party Data: aggregated data from other sources and can be purchased, e.g. data purchased from providers such as Acxiom, Alliant, C-Centric; spend-patterns, demographic data

Onboarding and data ingestion is a key fundamental element of having a fit-for-purpose DMP. Data ingestion and onboarding must be done correctly and follow best practice from the onset.

As a DMP, Audience Manager has three key functions:

  1. Data In: involves aggregation of 1st party data to build a unique customer profile without housing any Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  2. Audience Creation: this is when you can create audiences from groups of profiles, thereby developing a 360-degree customer profile. It has to do with the creation of audience segments.
  3. Data Out: activate your audiences by pushing segments to markets and enabling personalisation, e.g. through paid advertising or on-site experiences

Audience Manager has unmatched integrations with other Adobe solutions. Audience Manager can ingest data from solutions like Adobe Analytics and syndicate organised audience segments to a Demand Side Provider (DSP) like Media Optimizer, personalisation engine like Target, or the Experience Manager CMS.

Audience Manager Capabilities

  • Organise customers/users into segments
  • Enrich segments with 2nd and 3rd party data
  • Use identity management tools to solve cross device issues
  • Provide performance reporting at segment level
  • Activate segments at marketing destinations for personalisation and suppression etc

A DMP does not:

  • Store sensitive or PII data
  • Buy or report on advertising
  • Send email
  • Complete site or app performance reporting
  • Store creative assets

Here are five key Audience Manager Use Cases for any industry:

  1. Consolidate First-Party Data for Retargeting and Suppression
  2. Augment Audiences for Improved Personalisation
  3. Grow Reach with Lookalike Modelling
  4. Deliver Great Cross-Device Experiences
  5. Test and Optimise Audiences for Performance Improvements

Adobe Audience Manager can help business solve key business challenges by providing these benefits:

  • Better Conversion: based on site conversation rate
  • Improved Efficiency: based on cost per order
  • Increased Order size based on average order value
