Segments allow you to target your audience based on demographic fields like organization, location, and lead status, or based on behavioral fields like number of visits, mobile device used, or search terms used. Campaigns use segments to personalize your marketing efforts, allowing you to deliver relevant content to specific segments of your audience. This doc will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about segments and campaigns in RTP. If you would like to first learn the basics of using segments and campaigns, read through this collection of documents that will get you started: Getting Started (RTP)     Are RTP campaign designs responsive Yes. This means that RTP campaigns will work on mobile devices and will adapt to the sizing of mobile websites. Only Dialog and Widget campaigns are affected by screen sizes, as In Zone campaigns behave as embedded parts of the website. There are RTP Mobile Templates for fitting dialog campaigns to all mobile screen sizes.   Furthermore, in the segment editor, you can segment by mobile device type and manually create campaigns that appear differently on different devices.     Can you see how your RTP campaigns will be displayed on multiple devices In the campaign editor, you can use the preview tool to view how an RTP campaign will look. This tool will allow you to change the view settings to preview your campaign on all different kinds of devices with different screen sizes.     Can campaigns be displayed only on one page Yes, this can be done by using the "Include Pages" field in the segment editor        Go to the Segments page and hit the Edit button on the segment associated with your campaign        Use the Include Pages field to enter the specific page that you wish to have the campaign display on        You can also use this field to include any page with a specific keyword in the URL. To do this, use wildcard characters (*) which will match any sequence of characters. For example, "*product*" will match any URL that contains the keyword "product".     Can I insert JavaScript to RTP campaigns The RTP's campaign editor supports any standard and valid HTML, JavaScript, or CSS codes. Invalid codes will be stripped off the campaign's HTML   While using valid HTML, JavaScript, or CSS will work as expected, the use of jQuery can be problematic. Campaigns generally load very fast, especially In Zone campaigns, and they will often load before jQuery even exists on the web page. This can cause error messages in the developer's console or issues loading the campaign. If you need to use jQuery on your page, contact Marketo Support and we can try to come up with a simple workaround. Advanced solutions will need to be developed by a third party developer or the PS (product services?) team.     Can RTP campaigns be blocked by ad blockers or JavaScript blockers Basically, no. For a more in depth answer, please see Web Personalization (RTP) - Can RTP Campaigns Be Blocked by Ad Blockers or JavaScript Blockers     Does marketo RTP support animated GIF files Yes, we do support both static and animated GIF files in RTP campaigns. We do still recommend you preview and test the campaign to assure that the GIF appears as you hoped it would.     Does RTP impact SEO RTP does not affect any SEO performance and in some cases it can even improve SEO ranks due to longer website engagement. Search engines use robots to crawl through the content of web sites, which happens before RTP runs campaigns and personalizes content. This means that content from RTP does not get picked up by the search engines' robots, and will not contribute to a web page's rank. In many cases, RTP will actually improve a web page's SEO rank. Since RTP can increase engagement among a page's visitors, it can improve behavioral metrics like average time on a site, pages per visit, etc.     Does RTP support HTML5 Yes, all campaign types in RTP support HTML5.     How does Any Page in the Target URL field work The "Any Page" option in the target URL means that once the visitor matches the target segment, the campaign will be shown regardless of which page they are on within your web site.     How does RTP A/B testing work A/B testing a campaign consists of deploying slightly different versions of a campaign to test which version performs the best. To learn how to A/B test a campaign, see AB Test Your Web Campaign   The test works by randomly selecting a certain percentage of users to see one version of the campaign, and the rest see the second version. If the campaign is set to be Sticky (you can find this option in the campaign editor, shown below), the visitor will see one version of the campaign for their entire session on your web site. This means if the user is first shown campaign B, they will keep seeing campaign B until the end of their session. In that visitor's next session, they may see either campaign A or B.   If the campaign is not Sticky, the visitor will only be shown the campaign once during their session, whether that be campaign A or B. In their next session, they will again only be shown the campaign once, and again it could be either campaign A or B.     How can RTP recognize the search term When you visit a web page, your browser will keep track of the URL of web page that you were on directly before getting to that page. This is known as the "referral" URL. With the referrer URL, it is relatively simple to extract the search terms.   RTP uses this ability to extract search terms from the referral URL to determine the search terms used and record them in Marketo.   Unfortunately, Google has recently begun to withhold and encrypt much of this data, making it impossible for RTP to extract the search terms in some cases. For now though, you will still be able to get all search terms from other search engines like Yahoo and Bing.     How the RTP industries and organization groups are defined Industries In the segment editor there is an option to target visitors that come from specific industries, including: Agriculture & Mining Business Services Computers & Electronics Consumer Services Defense Education Energy & Utilities Financial Services Government Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, & Biotech Manufacturing Media & Entertainment Non-Profit Other Read Estate & Construction Retial Software & Internet Telecommunications Transportation & Storage Travel Recreation and Leisure Wholesale & Distribution   Marketo uses advanced machine learning algorithms to determine the industry based on data from _____. Marketo also uses keywords in the organization's name to get a better match for its industry. For example, an organization named "UCSF Medical Center " probably belongs to healthcare just based on the name itself, and "Stanford University " probably belongs in Education.   Organization Groups You can also target visitors in companies of various sizes, or Organization Groups, including: Fortune 500 Fortune 1000 Global 2000 Enterprise SMB   Marketo uses Forbes' annually updated lists to determine companies in the Fortune 500, Fortune 1000, and Global 2000 groups. Enterprise companies are defined as those with more than 1,000 employees and revenue greater than $250 million. SMB companies are all (non-ISP) organizations that are not defined as any of the above.   For more information on segment categories, visit: https://docs.marketo.com/display/public/DOCS/Using+Web+Segments     How accurate is RTP's reverse IP geolocation targeting IP based geo-location targeting has a 95% accuracy rates for country level and around 85% for states. For ISPs (Internet Service Providers) it is less accurate, because they often use different physical proxies and change their routing more often. Over time we follow the changes and update our database continuously.     Is it possible to redirect target visitors to specific pages Please see Web Personalization (RTP) - Redirect Targeted Visitors to Specific Pages     Is it possible to use segmentations from the Lead Database in RTP Currently this is not a feature that RTP supports. However, see this document if you wish to implement a work-around.     Is there a way to restore a deleted campaign There is no way to restore a deleted campaign in RTP. However, if you need to restore a deleted campaign, contact Marketo Support and it can be done if it was recently deleted. Unfortunately even restoring the campaign through Marketo Support will not restore the campaign's performance statistics.     RTP or CMS campaigns - which will win CMS campaigns are generally injected to the web page, meaning it runs before the page loads. RTP, on the other hand, runs as the page is loading. Since RTP campaigns run after CMS campaigns, they will override the CMS campaign and the page will only show the RTP campaign.     How to use the User Context API segmentation The User Context API is a very advanced and technical functionality. All of its documentation can be found here, on the Marketo Developers database.     What are the recommended sizes for RTP campaigns Of course the size of your RTP campaigns is up to your discretion, but here are our recommendations for various types of campaigns: Dialog (Square Pop-up): 250 x 250 pixels Widget (Medium Rectangle): 300 x 250 pixels For more standard sizes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_banner#/media/File:Standard_web_banner_ad_sizes.svg     What does the "Marketo Email Campaign" option mean When creating a segment with the filter "Marketo Email Campaign", the segment will only match visitors that visit your website after clicking an email in the specified campaign.       What happens when a visitor qualifies for more than one campaign When a visitor qualifies to see more than one campaign, depending on the types, you may see multiple campaigns on the page or only one. Below is a table explaining what happens when a visitor qualifies for two campaigns:     When only one campaign is to be shown, the campaign that is displayed is chosen randomly between the two. When a visitor qualifies for two In Zone campaigns with the same Zone ID, the campaign that is displayed is also chosen randomly.     What is a conversion in RTP A direct conversion is a visitor that became a lead after clicking on an RTP campaign. In a summary report, you will see the Direct Lead Conversion Rate, which is simply the percentage of clicks on the ampaign that lead to direct conversions.     What is the limit of organizations you can target for an RTP campaign There are no constraints on the number of organizations included in a campaign.     What is the limit of names allowed in the 'Organizations' criteria The limit is 100 names. It is a best practice to use dynamic lists instead. Dynamic lists will generally perform better because they are designed to index and handle larger lists.   What is the limit of rows exported in an Excel export By default, RTP limits the number of rows in an Excel (CSV) export to 100.  If you need more rows than that, you can increase it by going to User Settings and changing the value for 'Number of Rows in Excel Export.'  The maximum allowed is 10,000 rows     What is the limit of Zip Codes allowed You can enter up to 6,500 zip codes. They must be separated by semicolons (01234;12345; etc.)     What is the limit of segments allowed The segment limit varies: it can be 30, 60, or unlimited depending on your Marketo subscription type. If you have reached your subscription's limit, you will want to clear out segments that are not being used.   If you get an error message saying you've reached your limit, yet you believe your subscription makes you eligible for more segments, contact Marketo Support.

  Overview Add Leads to Static Lists Use Custom Fields Overview Lead records have two primary components – lead attributes and activity logs. Lead attributes are the fields and field values within the lead record. For example, Job Title is a lead attribute. Lead Name is a lead attribute. Activity logs record the actions Marketo or the lead themselves have taken. For example, sending an email to a lead is an activity that would show in the activity log. If the lead opens the email or visits a tracked page, those activities would show in the activity log as well.   Activities in the activity log are only retained for 25 months, or 37 if you have purchased the premium data retention option. The main way to store activity data beyond the Data Retention Policy timeframe is to use the Bulk Extract API. There are two other ways you can keep a reference of these activities after the end of the Data Retention period, and they can be referenced within the Marketo UI. This article will show you how that can be done.     Add Leads to Static Lists Static lists will retain lead membership even if the activity of adding the lead to the list has been removed. This will let you have lists dedicated to specific criteria that would otherwise be removed after the data retention time period has been passed.   For example, Smart Campaign membership history is not retained after 25 months. If you are searching for members of a Smart Campaign, but a lead first became a member of the Smart Campaign more than 25 months ago, the search results would not include that lead.   An easy way to work around that is to add your leads to a static list as part of the flow of the campaign. When creating your Smart Campaign, create a new static list with the same corresponding name (makes it easier to identify later). When building the flow of your campaign, add the "Add to List" flow step so that all leads going through the campaign will be logged on the list.         Use Custom Fields Lead attributes and their field values are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. Use Smart Campaigns to populate custom fields with values based on activities your leads take. This will allow you to filter leads by these lead attributes that are not affected by the Data Retention Policy. A side benefit to this is that it is faster to search by lead attributes than by searching through lead activity logs.   Example: This approach can work for many different activities, but let’s use form fill outs as an example.   Let’s say you want to be able to identify leads who have been very active and have filled out more than 5 forms over their lifecycle. You could use the filter “Filled Out Form” with the “Min. Number of Times” constraint set to 5. However, if one of those forms filled out occurred more than 25 months ago, the filter would only be able to access 4 form fill activities in the activity log. Therefore, the lead would not pass the filter.   Instead of using the “Filled Out Form” filter, set up a Smart Campaign to write to custom fields that show you how many forms they’ve filled out, and when the first one was. Here’s how to do it:   1. Create two new custom fields in Marketo, one Score Field, and the second a Date Field.   2. Create a new Smart Campaign   3. Add the trigger “Fills Out Form” set to “is any” to the Campaign Smart List     4. Add these two Flow Steps to the Campaign Flow: Flow Step 1 : “Change Score” Score Field Name: your score field name Change: +1   Flow Step 2 : “Change Data Value” Add Choice to Flow Step Choice 1: If “your score field name”  “is empty” Attribute “your score field name” New Value: {{system.date}} Default Choice: Do Nothing       This campaign will listen for any time a lead fills out a form, add +1 to your score field, and if it’s the very first form they’ve ever filled out, it will log the date of when it was done. If the lead has ever filled out a form in the past, there will already be a date value in the date field, so the flow choice would just skip over it and do nothing.       Results You’ll See: With the original goal of identifying leads who have filled out more than 5 forms you’ll be able to filter for leads that have filled out at least 5 forms. In addition, this campaign will let you search for leads based on when they had filled out their very first form, regardless of how long ago it was. Since it’s stored in a lead field, it’s a lead attribute that is not affected by the Data Retention Policy at all.

AdBlockers Basically no. RTP campaigns are like any other page element and cannot be blocked by AdBlock tools or browser configurations.   How do AdBlockers work? AdBlock tools scan any web page the visitor is visiting and hide any elements with keywords like %ad% and %banner% (see a full list below) in the class name or ID. (very rare scenarios:) If you will use a DIV with name or ID that includes one of these keywords - the div will be blocked and get the CSS attributes below, and the RTP campaign won't show up. This also happens if the DIV you use is wrapped by a div that have this kind of class name of ID.   CSS Attributes that cause the div to be hidden: display: none;   visibility: hidden; orphans: 4321 ;   How to check? To verify this is the issue use a different browser (without AdBlocker) or pause the AdBlocker in your browser.   How to workaround? The fix is very simple -  ask your web team to change the div ID / class name or use a different div for your RTP campaign. Javascript Blockers When you install javascript blocker tool on your browser you can define your white list - a list of domains that you want to allow running javascript on your browsers. If the visitor enabled this option for marketo.com RTP and Munchkin will work properly, otherwise RTP and Munchkin will be blocked by the JS Blocker .     Notes: Tested on this Chrome AdBlock tool AdBlocker keywords: https://jsfiddle.net/yanir_calisar/2nfzx1ww/

Included in this Article:     Overview Creating Custom Fields Dynamic Updates Set Up Custom Fields in RTP Filter by Custom Fields     Overview Unfortunately RTP does not support the option to use Lead Database segmentations as segments in RTP. However, it is still possible with a bit of a workaround. Essentially, you will want to create custom fields for each segmentation, dynamically update them using smart campaigns, and filter by these custom fields in RTP. Below we will describe the steps you will need to take to implement this.     Creating Custom Fields To start off, you will have to make a custom field in My Marketo for each segmentation you wish to use in RTP. Follow the steps in this article to get the custom fields set up in My Marketo. Make sure to select Boolean in the Type field.     Dynamic Updates Next, you will need to assign these custom fields to those matching their respective segmentations. To do so, we will create a smart campaign, which will also update the list as more leads begin to match the segmentation.   In My Marketo, visit the Marketing Activities page and create a new Smart Campaign     In the Smart List tab, choose the filter for your desired segmentation, and the Segment Changes trigger for the same segmentation     The filter will include all of the existing members of the segmentation, and the trigger will include any members that qualify for the segmentation in the future. Next,     In the Flow tab, select the Change Data Value action, click Add Choice, and format the action to change your custom field to true when the lead qualifies for your desired segment, and false otherwise     It is important to have both cases, for your lead matching the segmentation and for not matching, because leads can both qualify or be disqualified for segmentations at any point in time.   Finally, under the Schedule tab, edit the Smart Campaign Settings so this will apply every time, and Activate the campaign       Set Up Custom Fields in RTP Once you have set up your custom fields in My Marketo, you will also have to set up this field to display in RTP:   Go to your Account Settings and navigate to the Database tab     Select your custom fields in the drop down menu at the bottom of the page, then click       Filter by Custom Fields Finally, once you've set up the custom field in My Marketo and in RTP, you can use the custom field to target the leads that qualify for your segmentation in My Marketo. To do so:   Go to the Segments page and create a new segment       Lastly, use the Database filter, select your custom field, and choose either true or false depending on if you want to target those in or out of the segmentation     There you have it! You can now use your segmentations in My Marketo to target your audience in RTP campaigns.

Included in this article   Overview Description Event listeners Assets from URL Patterns Created content API - Event Sending Function Overview The Content Recommendation Engine will recommend content that your visitors will like, but there must be content to recommend first. You can manually upload all assets and pieces of content you want to use, but you can also let RTP automatically discover what content is already out there, publishe d on your website currently. This process of identifying those assets is called Asset Discovery, or Content Discovery. This d oc will show you how the Asset Discovery process works.   For documentation on how to enable Asset Discovery please see Enabling Content Discovery - Marketo Docs - Product Docs     Description Event listeners The asset discovery process is an event listener. It runs on every page that has the RTP script running on it and waits for visitors to click on links that count as content assets. Once it identifies a click on a content asset, it checks if this is a click on an asset. By default, RTP defines content assets as any external pages or files like PDF, PPT, PPTX, MP4, OGG, WEBM or YouTube. As these pieces of content are discovered, they are added to the list of content pieces that the CRE can recommend to visitors.   Assets from URL Patterns Asset discovery automatically identifies assets on your web pages, but y ou can also manually configure assets based off of URL patterns so that HTML pages with URLs that match these patterns will be auto-discovered as assets. Once the URL patterns are configured, the pages will be identified as individual assets that the CRE can recommend.   Created content Users can manually add new content in RTP with the directions in the documentation here: Create New Content - Marketo Docs - Product Docs When the content is created, you specify the content URL.     API - Event Sending Function In some cases, the download (submit) button is not a direct link to the asset itself but to a JavaScript that opens the asset. When this is the done, the asset discovery events must be coded into the JavaScript on the page and use an API call. This API calls only work if the RTP script is loaded on the page.   An example of the code would be: rtp('send', 'view','/case_study1.pdf');   The Event Sending Function documentation can be found here: RTP JavaScript API » Marketo Developers
