Website Personalizer Tool
You can create and manage each website content customization in the Workshop > Personalizations page inside the Growmatik app.
Note: Modifying the page content through the Website Personalizer tool does not affect the original content of the page. The personalizer creates a copy of the page in the Growmatik dashboard and applies your changes only to that instance.
Creating a new personalization
In the Workshop page, choose Personalization from the sidebar menu. Click on the Create Personalization button and select a page you’d like to personalize. Once a page is selected from the menu, you’ll be taken to the Website Personalizer environment, where you can add, edit and hide content on your website as you like.
Selecting content on your website
Hover over different elements on the page to see the pink border around them.
To select an element, simply click on it. The selected element will appear as selected with a thicker pink border.
Note: The Website Personalizer follows the same wrapper structure as the original page. You may need to play around with the cursor to locate the wrapper that includes the element(s) you want to select.
Adding content to your website
1. Select an element on the page where you want to add content.
2. Click on the icon to open the elements list, then select an element.
Note: The following elements can be added to a personalized page:
Removing content from your website
To remove an item from the page, select the item and click on the icon.
Note: As mentioned at the beginning of the article, modifying the page content through the Website Personalizer tool does not affect the original content of the page. After you’re done with your website content customization, the personalizer creates a copy of the page in the Growmatik dashboard and applies your changes only to that instance.
Editing existing text on your website
- In order to edit existing text on the page, first select it and then double click on it. You can also directly double click on the text to go to edit mode.
2. Once you are done editing the text, click on the icon to approve the edits or click the icon to undo the changes.
Note: While in editing mode, you won’t be able to edit any items other than the selected item on the page. You need to approve or cancel your changes before editing other content on the page.
Editing content added by the Website Personalizer tool
To edit the content or customize the appearance of an added element, click on it to select it, then click on the icon to open the element’s settings panel. You can also double click on an element to open its settings panel.
Elements in the Website Personalizer tool
The following elements are available to be added to your personalized page:
The settings and customization options for each element are explained below:
Use the Text element to insert texts to your personalized page. The following options are available for further customization:
- Use and controls to apply bold or italic style.
- Use the color picker to change the text color.
- Click on the link icon to apply a hyperlink to the text.
- Use the alignment options to align the text left, center or right.
- You can personalize content with dynamic keywords in order to do that click on Dynamic Keywords to insert dynamic content inside the text. This dynamic keyword can be based on Personal details (such as first name), Shopping activity (such as total orders value) and Referral (such as UTM source).
Note: Dynamic keywords appear different for each user.
Note: The Daytime dynamic keyword will be replaced with a text according to the time of day:
- From 00:00 until 11:59, the text will be Good morning.
- From 12:00 until 16:59, the text will be Good afternoon.
- From 17:00 until 23:59, the text will be Good evening.
Note: The UTM dynamic keywords will extract the UTM contents of a URL when a user enters your site. The UTM data will then be available throughout the session. For example, when a user enters your site through the following URL: https://yoursite.com/?utm_source=google, the word google will be stored as the utm_source throughout that user’s session. This means that, if you insert the utm_source dynamic keyword in any page through the Website Personalizer tool, the tag will be replaced with the word google. Of course, the text replacement will only occur if the personalization is associated with Growmatik automations rule.
