Monetate is used to manage and provide relevant, individualized content and experiences in real time. Monetate aims to take personalization beyond segments, and deliver one-to-one personalized experiences to your customers on any screen and across every page of your website. Monetate was added as an option with Optimizely Configured Commerce 3.7.
Monetate is an advanced feature that will require extra planning to implement. Optimizely has a relationship with Monetate to assist in using this functionality. Contact the Configured Commerce product owner if you wish to use Monetate in your implementation of Configured Commerce.
A campaign is created that uses a banner image in the content section to display a banner image in a selected location, only after a customer has been on the site for 60 seconds. The banner would link to a promo code that offers free shipping on their purchase above $50. The final step of the campaign would allow you to track the success of such an endeavor through many different measurable metrics.

- Images, code, and fonts can be uploaded in the Content tab to use when creating a campaign.
- Targets allow you to target cookies, HTML elements and JS variables. There are many targets that can be defined in Monetate and depend on how deeply integrated the site is with Monetate. Insite's base integration with Monetate offers a large amount of targets to be defined.
Multiple campaigns can be created and a minimum significance threshold can also be set. This makes tracking the effectiveness of your campaigns possible.

If this is something that is needed, email your client service representative for more information.
