Use case

The user creates a dynamic audience with the following conditions:

  • High risk of churning (leaveraging model score)

  • Living in North America

  • Preferred language English

  • > $200 spent in the last 3 months

  • No contact in the last 30 days

After creating the audience, the user provides the name of their audience to their web team. The web team is interested in targeting these customers with content in the product portal. They use Adobe Target to deliver the personalized content. To enable this, prior to Adobe Target "loading" an API call is made with the customer identifier and a list of audiences is returned. They then set up a campaign in Adobe Target to deliver the experience.
