Defining Promotion Targets

Each promotion can be targeted at:

  • Individually selected customers,

  • A specific customer segment, or

  • Customer segments associated with affiliate partners or affiliate partner programs

When enabled, the promotion is applied to all items assigned to the target group.

Target groups are managed on the Target Group tab in the promotion details view. Here you can add/remove items to/from the target group.

Adding Items to the Target Group

To add items to a promotion's target group:
  1. Select the channel from the context selection box, then select Marketing | Promotions.
    This displays the list of all promotions in the current sales channel.
  2. Click the name of a promotion to view its details.
    This opens the General tab of the detail view.
  3. Select the Target Group tab.
    The tab shows all customers, customer segments, and affiliates currently assigned to the promotion.
  4. Click Assign in one of the three target group member categories.
    A list of items belonging to the category along with check boxes is displayed.

    The list of customers includes all customers that are currently registered with the selected sales channel.

    The list of customer segments contains pre-defined segments (e.g., all registered customers, or all new customers) and user-defined segments.
    Note: In order to be able to assign customer segments as a target group, at least one segmentation service must be configured for the sales channel, see Customer Segments.
    The list of affiliate partners contains all partners that have been defined for the sales channel.
