What is a Deploy?
A Deploy in the app is a series of changes on the page or pages geared towards a specific audience.
Deployments vs Experiences
Experiences have an Original and one or more Variations or versions of the page. A Deploy does not have an original and variations. It only has one version of a page and has a defined audience. There is no Reporting Dashboard for Deployments.
Use Case Example
My client sells products across the US-Canadian border on his web site. However, he wants to use different promotions for these different markets. He wants to push these promotions through banner ads on the main page of his e-commerce site.
I can use Convert Experiences to quickly and easily create promotions geared towards different segments, in this case USA or Canadian visitors, using Convert's Visual Editor.
Create a Deploy
- Click on the "Experiences" menu on the left menu.
- Click on the "New Experience" on the upper right and select Deploy.
- Fill in the name field and the URL of the page where you are going to create the Deploy.
- Create the deploy changes with the Visual Editor and save them.
- After you finish and save your changes, click on "Save & Continue" to exit the Visual Editor.
- Edit your "Audience", by clicking on the pencil icon of the Audience section.
- Select a desired Audience from Presets or create a Custom Audience and save it.
- After Activating the Deploy, it should appear as Active in the Experience list in the Experiences. That's all there is to it. Your Deploy is created.
Create a new Deploy from a Variation or Winning Variation from another Experiment
You can create a Deploy from a Variation in one of your other Experiments; for instance, if you have a Winning Variation in an A/B test and want to stop that test but still keep the Winning Variation running. You can do this on the Report Page:
GDPR Warning Message
Deployments have the potential to contain small segments (under 100 unique visitors) and this could be interpreted by Privacy Authorities in Europe as identification of data subjects. For that reason, we added a GDPR warning message to the summary of any Deploy.
