This article provides you information for creating your Embedded Web Channel campaign. The Embedded campaign type will replace a selected web page element on your website with your personalized message. You can display different welcome images for different customer segments on your home page. For example, you can use this type of campaign to:
- Reactivate your churning customers.
- Place an unintrusive message by using Visual editor.
This feature must be enabled for you by Emarsys Support, and requires steps 1 and 2 of the Web Extend Data Collection Scripts to be implemented.
Selecting a template
To create a new Embedded campaign using Web Channel templates, you need to perform the following:
Choose a pre-created, designed campaign. For details, see Selecting your campaign template.
Ensure you set the following:
- For Embedded Web Channel campaign you can select Customer reactivation or Unintrusive messaging campaign strategy.
- Set the format of your campaign as Embedded.
- Select your editor type: With HTML Editor you can create a customer reactivation campaign, with Visual Editor you can replace an image banner.
