  • Setting up segments and content is easy, but it can be a bit difficult linking created segments with created content.
Get Smart Content is well suited for segmentation of web traffic. It is less appropriate for A/B testing of segments. Although testing is possible, it would be a nice improvement to modify and further build out the testing piece.

Currently we use Get Smart Content (GSC) for personalization campaigns via DemandBase and Eloqua segments and for Geo location campaigns. Currently only our Americas' region is actively using GSC. The business problem it addresses is the inability to be nimble to create these campaigns using another program.
  • Simple to set up personalization campaigns.
  • Integrates with DemandBase, Eloqua and Adobe Analytics.
  • Support is top notch, quick response times.
  • Cut QA time by 3/4 less than using Adobe Test & Target.
  • When you set up a campaign you should be able to set up content while in the campaign.
  • You should be able to set up new segments while in the campaign.
Get Smart Content is well suited for personalization and geolocation campaigns. It is not as well suited for A/B testing for all of your web visitors. The ability to personalize on the Get Smart Content platform cuts development and QA time in half and support is better than any other product I have used or reviewed.
