What is Adobe Target?

Adobe Target, a cloud software tool under the Adobe Experience Cloud umbrella, provides users with everything they need to tailor and personalize customer experiences. The AI-powered solution allows companies to run user experience (UX) tests, pinpoint which messaging is most successful, and automate personalized content at scale with the ultimate goal of maximizing engagement and increasing lead conversion.Footnote 1

Why is personalization important? Think about it this way: You receive an email from a company you love addressed to you by name. It includes a special offer on the exact product you’d been eyeing earlier. You’re much more likely to make a purchase as a result of this email than as a result of a generic email from a company you’ve never heard of that gives info about a product you don’t want or need. 

So, what does Adobe Target do? It helps companies personalize and optimize customer experiences in a variety of ways. Adobe Target A/B testing allows users to test out two versions of their website within a given period, and then the software reports which version converted more leads to customers. Multivariate (MV) testing shows different page element combinations to different users, so companies can identify their most successful elements. Experience targeting shows certain content to certain customers, based on company-set criteria. And those are just a few of the many Adobe Target features.Footnote 2
