General

Why should I use Personyze?

Personyze solves the challenge of transforming piles of Web analytic data into real business value.

Personyze accurately tracks visitor behavior in your website and lets you personalize, based on the information gathered, any elements of the website for each visitor and in real time.

Personyze offers an unparalleled capability to personalize and optimize a website for its visitors, enhancing their experience on the site and making it as relevant as possible.

For example, if a visitor arrives to your website from a search engine, after searching for "discount toys", the possible relevant actions could be:

  • Redirect the visitor to the "Toys on Special" page and sort the product display by price from, lowest to highest.
  • Display a banner that indicates that customers buying toys today will receive a 10% discount.
  • If they still did not make a purchase, you can send a follow up email offering a special promotion on toys for visitors who had been interested in the last days.

This is just one example among many. Our experience has shown that personalizing a website in a such a way that it display content that is more relevant to its visitors, based on their needs and behavioral patterns, increases conversions enormously.

Personyze was constructed with flexibility in mind, which means that on top of all the great segmentation and personalization actions that are built into the platform, you have the ability to add any segments and actions you can think of that are relevant to your business.

Enhance your website experience today

Is Personyze a Web analytic tool?

YES and NO.

NO, because Personyze is first and foremost about personalization actions.

YES, because the platform includes a highly powerful and flexible real time Web analytics tool that activates the personalization actions in real time.

Analyzer offers comprehensive analysis of all static and dynamic Web activity, including the one related to the latest multimedia technologies, such as Ajax and Flash. The data gathered is used by the Profiler that determines to which segments each visitor belongs and executes the actions connected to these segments, creating the personalized user experience.

What types of personalization actions can Personyze perform?

Personyze allows you to perform a wide range of actions on your website. You can use the actions that are built into the system, or you can easily create your own. Some examples:

  • Show banners and pop-ups.
  • Add text and images in a page.
  • Replace text.
  • Redirect to another page.
  • Change the design of a page or part of it.

Each action is linked to one or more segments. When a visitor matches the conditions of a segment, the actions linked to it are automatically executed.

Almost any metric or piece of data that is known about a visitor can be used to define a segment's conditions. For example, visiting hours, referring website, keywords used in the search that brought them to the website, screen resolution, language preferences, average time on page, whether it's a new or a returning visitor, their interaction the website and much more.

Each segment is defined by one or more conditions and relations between them using operators (AND/OR/XOR), allowing you to define segments of visitors with high precision and resolution. For example:

  • [language = English OR Spanish] AND [keyword used = "mobile phone"]

What do I have to do in my website to start using Personyze?

  1. Create an account.
  2. Tell Personyze the domains and sub-domains you want it to track.
  3. Paste the provided tracking code in the master page of your website.

That's it!

How do I personalize a Web page?

  1. Define the segment of visitors for whom the personalization will be applied; for example, visitors from London that have been to the website in the past and have seen over 5 pages in this visit.
  2. Define personalization actions; for example, change the title of the page, replace all occurrences of a specific word, use a different image or banner, change the style of the page, etc.

That's it! Now, every time that a visitor matches the conditions specified, they will see the personalized version of the page.

How long will it take me to start using Personyze on my website?

Personyze is flexibility yet simple and intuitive.

You can implement Personyze in a few minutes. Personyze will start collecting information immediately, and you will be able to use segments and actions immediately. A full implementation that takes advantage of the wide range of capabilities that Personyze offers will take the website's administrator several hours.

Is it possible to use my current Web Analytics solution with Personyze?
