Steps to Create an OSM Campaign

There are three steps to creating an OSM campaign, and they are:

      1. Target users: Define the target audience for the campaign
      2. Content: Define the content of the push notification to be sent
      3. Schedule and Goals: Define the campaign's delivery schedule and goals

Step 1: Target Users

This section contains the following:

Campaign details

The campaign details section contains the following fields:

    • Campaign name - Type the name of the campaign to manage and identify the campaign.  The campaign name must have at least five characters, and the limit is 256.
    • Campaign tags - Select campaign tags from the drop-down list.  You can select up to 5 tags. For more information, refer to Campaign Tags.

Trigger Criteria

On Page Load On Custom Event On Exit Intent

Choose this option if you want to show the message as soon as the page loads on your website for the user. The following options are available:

  • Immediately - This option will show the OSM as soon as the page loads for the user.
  • After Delay - This option will show the OSM with the specified delay. For example, if the delay is specified as 2 seconds, the OSM will be shown 2 seconds after the page load.
  • After Scroll - This option will show the OSM once the user has scrolled the website by about x%. If you specify the scroll percentage as 30, the OSM will be displayed after the user has scrolled 30% of your website.

Select Pages

This section lets you choose the website pages where the campaign should be shown to the user. You can choose one of the following:

  • All pages - Choosing this option would let you show the campaign on all website pages.
  • Specific pages - Choosing this option would let you show the campaign on specific website pages. You can select the page on which you want to show/hide the campaign by defining the URL filter. To define rules on the URL, select the condition in the dropdown and specify the URL. You can add multiple rules by clicking on the OSM_SelectPages_AddFilterCondition.png icon. For example, you can define rules to show the campaign on a certain set of URLs or exclude a certain set of URLs. The example illustrated below will trigger the OSM campaign only in the URL specified.

    Select_Pages.png

    For example, if you do not want the OSM to be triggered on specific pages, then add the URLs of those pages and specify the condition as 'does not contain' or 'is not'. Use the AND operator to add multiple URLs.

Target audience

This section contains segmentation filters that help you choose the target audience for your campaign. The following options are available:

All Users Filter by User Property Filter by User Behavior Filter by User Affinity Filter by Custom Segment

This filter option allows you to send the campaign to all the app users. When you use this option, you cannot add multiple filters.

Control Groups

This section contains information about control groups for the campaign. To exclude users in the control groups, do the following:

    • Enable the  Global control group toggle to exclude the users in the control group from the campaign's target segment.
    • Enable the Campaign control group to exclude a fixed percentage of users in the campaign from the campaign's target segment. Specify the percentage of users to be excluded from the campaign in the box below the toggle. 
    • For more information about control groups, refer to Control Groups.

Step 2: Define Content

You can create the content for your OSM campaigns using two options here:

      1. Create the content using the new editor
      2. Create content using the old editor
Create content with the new editor Create content using the old editor

The following template types are available:

  • Banner - these templates can be used to show banners on the website while customers browse or perform actions on it. Banners can be used for the following:
      • show countdown timers
      • show cookie information and seek customer content for the same
      • show notifications with information about seasonal sales and ongoing offers
  • Nudge -  these templates can be used to show non-intrusive information to customers. Nudges can be used for the following:
      • show countdown timers
      • add a call to action information
      • show notifications
      • ask for subscriptions and opt-ins
      • used for lead generation
      • used to capture feedback at the time of delivery of service/product
  • Popup - these templates can be used to communicate with customers in an intrusive manner. Popups can be used for the following:
      • display information about sales and direct customers to relevant web pages
      • seek feedback from customers
      • lead generation
      • preventing customers from churning
Template Type When to use it?
Popups Use popups for intrusive communication
Nudges use nudges for non-intrusive communication
Banner at the Top

Use banners at the top to show offers. These templates will move the contents of the page down and occupy the space at the top of the website (the banner will not overlap with the content) if the Push the contents of the page down display option is enabled and the website's headers aren't sticky.

Banner at the Bottom Use banners at the top to show information to the visitor/customer about policies and seek their consent. These templates cover the entire width of the screen and will overlap with the content while being non-intrusive.

 

You can create your on-site message using a blank template or choose from the available templates for each template type. You can also look up a template using the search option or click on the template of your choice.

Step 3: Scheduling and Goals

This section contains the following:

  • Delivery Schedule - Choose when the campaign should be delivered to your users.
  • Conversion Goals - Choose the conversion goals and revenue metrics to be tracked for the campaign.
  • Campaign Priority and Delivery Controls- Choose the priority of the campaign and choose the global and local delivery control options, such as auto dismiss, the minimum delay between notifications, and the frequency of messages to be shown.

Delivery Schedule

The following delivery schedule options are available for OSM Campaigns:

One Time Periodic

Choose this option to send the campaign immediately or at a specified time to the target users.

Field Action

As soon as possible

Send the campaign immediately to the target users. The following options are available:

  • Ends - the time at which the campaign should end. There are two options here: Never and Ends On. The Never option can be used for campaigns that need to be run on a periodic basis for the foreseeable future. For campaigns that have an end date, you can use the Ends On option and specify the End Date and End Time.

At a particular date and time

Send the campaign at the specified time, time zone, or predicted time. This section helps you send the campaign on a specific date and time and contains the following fields:

  • Campaign timezone - the timezone in which the campaign should be sent.
  • Start Date - the date on which the campaign should be sent.
  • Send Time - the time at which the campaign should be sent. Select am or pm depending on when the time of day at which the campaign should be sent.
  • Ends - the time at which the campaign should end. There are two options here: Never and Ends On. The Never option can be used for campaigns that need to be run on a periodic basis for the foreseeable future. For campaigns that have an end date, you can use the Ends On option and specify the End Date and End Time.

Conversion Goals

You can add conversion goals to track the business metrics for your campaigns. You can track up to five conversion goals. You can choose any app event as a conversion goal activity and set more than one conversion goal. The first goal will be treated as a primary goal.

For example, if you want to track the number of customers who've purchased an iPhone after your campaign was sent. (Event - purchase event, Product - iPhone). Your conversion goal set-up might look similar to the image shown below with the following details:

  • Goal Name - iPhonePurchase 
  • App Event you wish to track- Made Purchase
  • Event Attribute/Property - product is event attribute/property 
  • Value of Event Attribute/Property - iPhone

ConVErsionGoals.png

With multiple conversion goals, you can track more than one business metric or visualize a funnel for your user actions. For example, if you want to check the following, you can do so with multiple conversion goals.

  • How many users have viewed the product page?
  • How many of them added that product to the cart?
  • How many of them made a successful order?
arrow_drop_down Tracking Revenue Performance (Optional)

With MoEngage, you can track the revenue generated by your campaigns. For example, you can track the revenue generated by your product after sending a communication. To track revenue performance, enable the Revenue Performance toggle for the conversion goal for which you want to track the revenue.

In the example here, to track revenue for orderSuccessfulevents, the Revenue performance toggle needs to be enabled. After choosing the goal, you can select the numeric attribute that captures the order's total monetary value. In the example below, cartValue contains the total order value. You can also choose the currency in which your monetary value is being reported. TrackingRevenuePerformance.png
After you choose the goal, you can choose the numeric attribute that captures the total monetary value of the order. In the example, cartValue contains the total order value. You can also choose the currency in which your monetary value is being reported. RevenuePerformance.png
Set Attribution window - You can set an attribution window ( a time period or window calculated from the time the user has received the campaign for which you want to attribute the conversion goals to a specific campaign.) As a default, it is set for 36 hours. Say, for the example above, we set it to 5 hours. AttributionWindow.png

Campaign Priority and Delivery Controls

This section contains the following options:

      • Campaign Priority - Set one of the following campaign priorities: Critical, High, Medium, Normal, and Low. The campaign with the higher priority will be shown when a user is eligible to see two campaigns at the same time. In case both campaigns are of the same priority, the campaign created recently will be shown first.
      • Global Delivery Control - This section lets you specify if you can Ignore global minimum delay set for the On-site messaging channel. Enable this toggle to ignore the settings for the minimum delay set for on-site messages.
      • Local Delivery Controls - This section contains options that let you specify the delivery controls that pertain to this campaign. The following options are available here:
          • Maximum times to show a message - lets you specify the maximum number of times to show the on-site message from the same campaign for a user. This is tracked using the On-site Message Shown event in the User Profile. For example, if the maximum times to show a message is turned off initially when the campaign is published and later edited to one time. If a user was shown the message already before editing the campaign and the user visits the site again, they will not be shown the message again as the On-site Message Shown would be available in their User Profile already and the message will not be shown to them again.
          • Minimum delay between 2 messages on this campaign - lets you specify the minimum time gap between two on-site messages from the same campaign.
          • Auto dismiss message after 'x' seconds - lets you specify the time after which the on-site message will be removed from the URL.

        Priority_and_Delivery_Controls.png

Your campaign is now ready to be sent. Click Publish and confirm in the dialog box that opens up to create the campaign.
