Adobe Journey Optimizer is a tool that helps companies and brands deliver contextual and personalized experiences to their customers. Journey Optimizer listens to granular customer behavior and responds to it immediately, delivering on the promise of one-to-one experiences. It starts with the awareness phase, where the customer learns about the brand and starts engaging. The customer will further interact with the brand, visit online and physical sites, make purchases, send/receive messages, or post reviews. By understanding the customer journey, companies can optimize their marketing efforts to meet their individual customers’ needs better.
Adobe Journey Optimizer is built on top of Adobe Experience Platform, a suite of tools that help companies deliver personalized experiences to their customers. Adobe Experience Platform includes several other services, such as Real-Time Customer Data Platform and Customer Journey Analytics, that work together to provide a complete view of the customer journey. By understanding the customer journey, companies can optimize their marketing efforts to meet their customers’ needs better. In our first post of this series, we looked at an overview of the Adobe Experience Platform.

How does Adobe Journey Optimizer work
Built on the Adobe Experience Platform (AEP), Adobe Journey Optimizer looks for user event signals such as account sign-ins, offer clicks, product adds, form entries, and more to start a personalized journey for customers. The AEP Foundation enables Journey Optimizer to stitch together customer profile data from multiple disparate sources, including first-party data, CRM systems, and more. This lets brands unify their customer profiles for a single view of the customer across devices. Then, the signals that start each personalized journey are processed in real-time so that actions can be taken in milliseconds, not days.
Within a journey, messages can be sent to various known applications such as in-app push notifications, email messages, and text messages. Also, webhooks can call any external application for further processing, such as adding the customer to a loyalty program or updating a CRM system.
Adobe Journey Optimizer allows marketers to design customer journeys tailored for each user, and it does this by utilizing data stored in events or sources. These tools can be used, so you don’t have just one experience but many different ones based on what the person wants at any time! The following image is the Journey Designer view, where marketers can drag and drop an entry event or a read segment activity, add conditions, and send personalized messages:
With the help of Journey Designer, marketers can now build multi-step cross-channel scenarios that are more engaging than ever before.
