Audience comparison in reports

More insights. More confidence.

Want to know how a specific campaign worked on mobile vs. desktop visitors? Dig deeper into reports to take faster decisions using the new double-filtered view! 

You can also turn these filters into Filter Presets to analyze these audiences across all your reports.

Within the filter panel, you can:

  • Define in detail the audience filters you would like to track 
  • Cross-reference these audiences and compare campaign results
  • Save them as a Filter Preset to re-use across campaigns and maintain consistent reporting

Decide with confidence about the next steps, e.g. create personalization for your specific audience or turn it into production for everyone.

Pre-DOM Ready execution at campaign level

Speed up your campaign JavaScript execution.

Choose at campaign level when JavaScript executes. Decide in one click to run a campaign’s JavaScript before the page is DOM-Ready, improving JS loading time. Just toggle on or off “Wait for DOM-Ready to execute JS” in the Visual Editor’s campaign, JavaScript, or in the code editor. By default, your campaigns will wait for DOM-Ready to execute. You can change the default JavaScript execution behavior across campaigns in Advanced Settings.

Visual Editor loading time

The Visual Editor is faster than ever!

To continuously improve our platform and save you time, we have optimized our Visual Editor. We’ve been working behind the scenes to improve the code and this has led to a reduction in the editor's weight by about 50%, and a faster loading time of around 40%.

 Check it out for yourself!

Campaign Performance Center

Actionable insights for site performance

Because the speed of your site is crucial, the new Performance Center shows you if and how campaigns can be adjusted to improve overall performance - ensuring the best possible experience for your visitors. 

The page identifies for you campaigns that may be affecting site performance. It displays details on loading method, widget version, targeting verification, and old campaigns. From there, you can navigate directly to where in AB Tasty you need to go to solve the issue.

Campaign creation shortcut from the Widget Library

When inspiration strikes, seize the opportunity right away

If a widget from the Widget Library catches your eye, you can now try it immediately. Save time and quickly create a campaign with the widget of your choice (standard widgets or Custom Widgets) directly from the Widget Library using the campaign creation shortcut.

Choose the widget, click the "Use in Campaign" button, and a pop-up window will open asking you for some basic information. You're then ready to create a  new campaign that includes the widget of your choice.

Custom Widget Sharing

 

Share great customer experience ideas with other teams

A Custom Widget created by one user can be a source of inspiration for others, especially for companies with multiple brands or regions. You can now duplicate and deploy Custom Widgets to other accounts, easily sharing ideas across brands and markets, and reducing the time to market for campaigns

To do so, you simply need to select the Custom Widget(s) you wish to share, click "Duplicate" and, in the dedicated pop-in, choose the account(s) where you wish to duplicate the selected Custom Widget(s). Note that Custom Widgets can only be shared with accounts that you have access.

Improvements to campaign setup targeting & triggering

More visibility on campaign-specific settings

Select audiences more easily during campaign setup, by viewing the details of your audience configurations directly from the “Targeting” step! In this step yo,u can now see the defined segment or triggering conditions by hovering over the eye icon in the drop down menu. 

You’ll also notice the triggers and targeting lists are now organized into categories to help you find them more quickly. For triggers, easily view the one used in the campaign, triggers created for the campaign, the previous triggers saved, and the default ones. For targeting, you can now view the selected, default, and saved segments.

Add to targeting

Define targeted elements from the Visual Editor

It’s back, and better than ever! You can now select the element you want to be targeted  d ir e ctly from the Visual Editor with the option ‘Add to targeting’. This will then pre-fill the URL and CSS selector in the targeting configuration section, making it that much easier to personalize your campaigns.

Content Interest update

Engage visitors based on the content they consume.

Finding inspiration for personalization campaigns just got easier with the Content Interest update. Identify at a glance consumers who share a common interest, and create for them a tailored experience. The most relevant keywords representing your visitors’ interests are now directly visible inside the audience builder, including view and transaction rates linked to each topic.

Create segment criteria based on your visitors' preferences for a specific topic on your website: it could be a specific line of products, an article, services, etc. Content Interest is powered by our AI! It leverages the keywords used in the title tags of your website;  it analyzes page views and transactions to decide if there's a real interest in a particular keyword.

Abandoned cart segment

They started shopping with you but left - and are now back on your site! Use this opportunity to reach out to your visitors who were just one step away from completing their purchase journey. With AB Tasty, you can now target those who have abandoned their carts to create tailored journeys that will maximize conversions.

Create different types of campaigns to recover abandoned carts. For example, target based on those who have high-value abandoned carts or those with a large number of items in their baskets.

Deep-dive into what happens when your tag refreshes and better troubleshoot issues

We’ve updated the information status when clicking on refreshing the tag. You'll see in real-time the different steps your tag goes through and you'll know immediately if something is blocking your tag refresh and why.


Want to see what’s happening in real-time when you hit the refresh tag button if something is blocking your tag from refreshing and why? We're giving you behind-the-scenes access to the steps of the refresh process and see if your settings need to be adjusted.

Most accurate targeting criteria without compromising performance

Within the targeting phase, we’re evolving the option to wait for conditions to be met before a campaign is displayed, also called “wait until” mode. On July 1, we will offer an alternative mode that will replace the existing option in order to boost performance.

The “wait until mode” is one of two options available to decide when a campaign should be displayed. It continuously checks all the pages to validate that the conditions are met, which in some situations can have a small impact on performance because for pages with no conditions, our engine continues to search for them. As this is a popular option for some clients with a lot of pages or a lot of campaigns, it can lead to a bigger impact on performance. 

Our focus is on providing you with tools and features that will make your life easier and help you achieve your goals faster without compromising performance. After collecting feedback and analysing product usage, we have designed an alternative to the “wait until” mode that will not only work the same but will be more efficient and reduce the execution time of the tag. You will now have separate options that are more granular and precise so you can choose exactly what you want to target:

Starting in July, these new options will replace the "wait until” mode. Don't worry about your current campaigns, as this only affects newly created campaigns.

New Mixpanel Integration

Target your analytics-driven cohorts

This new integration brings your analytics-driven audiences from Mixpanel into the AB Tasty segment builder for even more relevant campaigns. Mixpanel’s product analytics tool enables you to capture data on how users interact with your digital platforms. Within Mixpanel, you can build dynamic cohorts that share characteristics, experiences or behaviors: for example, build audiences based on purchase funnel stage, or customer lifecycle behavior.

Target your Mixpanel cohorts with experiments and personalizations, and go even more granular by combining them with AB Tasty criteria, such as Engagement Level, for an even more powerful targeting. For instance, in Mixpanel, create a cohort of users who have not purchased within the last 30 days but continue to be active within your email campaigns. Combine this with AB Tasty’s device and location targeting, and run a multi-page test with a coupon banner to identify where in the purchase funnel works best to finally convert them.

How these users respond to the tests can then be fed right back into Mixpanel using our existing integration that pushes campaign data from AB Tasty to Mixpanel.

Coming Soon: Google Analytics 4 Integration

Activate GA4 Audiences with AB Tasty campaigns

Google recently announced the replacement of Universal Analytics (July of next year for those who missed it!), and now is the time to start actioning your GA4 strategy. Coming your way soon, you’ll be able to target your experimentation and personalization campaigns to audiences built in GA4, and drive higher engagement with your campaigns.  

With GA4 you can build segments by combining dimensions, metrics, and events, or leverage their templated and fully configured audiences. Build your audiences based on session, age, gender, purchase history, device, and more, or use ready-made audiences such as Recently Active Users. You can then import them into AB Tasty and target your campaigns using our Segment builder. Mix your Google Audiences with our audience criteria and our AI-powered segments. 

When building your journey strategy, remember that audiences created in GA4 can be leveraged in AB Tasty and also in Google Adwords. Here’s a sneak peek of what it will look like:

Updates to ourreporting

Date filter improvement

We’re constantly working to make it easier for you to measure the success of your campaigns and optimize where it matters. We’ve made filtering by date with data updates easier: now, if you want to apply a date filter you’ll immediately see what days have campaign data and be able to filter on those directly.

F i l t e r e d v i e w a n d e x c l u s i o n f i l t e rs

Deep-dive into customer trends and campaign success.

Better understand your campaign success by analyzing customer behavior in more depth with the new filter view for our analytics.

The filtered view helps you identify trends and opportunities that you might otherwise have missed by comparing variation performance through different lenses. 

For example, while one variation may be a clear winner overall, by filtering you may see that one variation performs better on mobile, and the other on desktop. Once you’ve identified this, you can duplicate your experimentation campaign and create two personalizations that will ensure you haven’t missed any opportunities to convert. 

 

Campaign variations can also be compared by geolocation, browsers, new users versus returning users, etc. allowing you to better understand why a variation won or lost. When variation performance is close to the original, help decide between the two by looking at priority regions, or which one works best with loyal customers.

The filter update also comes with the ability to exclude.

The filters can also be used to exclude data from your campaign report. To do this, simply select the "red dot option" from the filters menu and select the days, countries or other factors you wish to exclude from your campaign. 

Capture-decran-2022-03-22-a-16.24.57.png

​​​​This exclusion feature will allow you to easily exclude anomalies in your  campaign report - you won't need to delete the data from your campaign, pause it and restart it to have solid data to make decisions. You can just remove the days, or the country concerned by the problem for example.

  • Tooltip

  • Tracking widgets (All)

  • Search & Replace

  • Virtual Click

  • Sticky Element

  • Celebrate

  • Social Sharing

 

Double the options for click-through with a second CTA

mceclip0__1_.png

You can now add a second button to your pop-ins directly from the widget editor, without having to add any additional code. 

This new option is limited to adding one additional button. It is available for the following modal widgets.

  •  Countdown

  •  Simple pop-in

  •  Image pop-in

  •  Video pop-in

This is what you might say to someone who completes a progress bar with their actions. You'll be able to edit the text of a progress bar once it's completed to further enhance and personalize the user experience.

The modified text is only displayed when the progress bar is complete. If your customer cancels an action and the bar is no longer complete, the text will return to the original. There is no possibility to change the text when a milestone is reached for the moment.
