Audiences

If you want to take advantage of Audience segmentation, this is a great tool to use.
It allows you to setup custom text that will display for each Audience group that you have created.

To use this feature
From the drop-down menu, select the Audience you created in the Boosters section.
Once open, you will see an individual text field for each Audience group.

    To ensure the Audience feature will work, use this Audience page URL in your marketing emails, instead of the standard page URL.
    Simply replace the XXX, with the Email merge field used by your Emailing system. That way, when a user registered to a specific Audience group accesses this page, your site will pick up their email and then show the relevant Text linked to that Audience group.Customers not registered to an Audience will simply see the default text you added to the top Text field.
