Work with audiences in Campaign

Profiles are contacts stored in Campaign database.

In Adobe Campaign, recipients are the default profiles targeted for sending deliveries (emails, SMS, etc.). Recipient data stored in the database enable you to filter the target that will receive any given delivery and to add personalization data in your delivery contents. Other types of profiles exist in the database. They are designed for different uses. For example, seed profiles are made to test your deliveries before they are sent to the final target.

Create lists

A list is a static set of contacts which can be targeted in delivery actions or updated during an import or another workflow action. For example, a population extracted from the database via a query can be stored as a list.

Filter the database

Filter configuration lets you select data from a list dynamically: when the data is modified, the filtered data is updated. You can create your own filters or use the built-in filters to define a target audience.

Create an audience in a workflow

Targeting can be created via a combination of queries in a graphical sequence in a workflow. You can create audiences which will be targeted according to your requirements. To display the workflow editor, click the Targeting and workflows tab in the campaign dashboard.

Active profiles

According to your contract, each of your Campaign instances is provisioned with a specific number of active profiles that are counted for billing purposes. Please refer to your latest contract for reference on number of purchased active profiles.

Profile means a record of information (e.g.: a record in the Recipient table or an external table containing a cookie ID, Customer ID, mobile identifier or other information relevant to a particular channel) representing an end-customer, prospect, or lead. Profiles are considered active if they have been targeted or communicated within the past 12 months via any channel.

Adobe Campaign is a powerful tool for collecting and processing large volume of data, including personal information and sensitive data. Adobe Campaign enables you to collect data, including personal and sensitive information. It is therefore essential that you receive and monitor consent from your recipients.
