Webpage Personalizer Tool:

Webpage Personalizer helps you show everyone their own version of your website based on their stage, attributes and preferences.
You can create and manage each webpage personalization in the Workshop > Personalizations page inside the Growmatik app.

Note: Modifying the page content through the Webpage Personalizer tool does not affect the original content of the page. The personalizer creates a copy of the page in the Growmatik dashboard and applies your changes only to that instance.

    • utm_medium
    • utm_campaign
    • utm_term

Note: Dynamic tags such as Username, First Name, Last Name appear differently for each user.

Note: The Daytime dynamic tag will be replaced with a text according to the time of the day:

  • From 00:00 until 11:59 the text will be Good morning.
  • From 12:00 until 16:59 the text will be Good afternoon.
  • From 17:00 until 23:59 the text will be Good evening.

Note: The UTM dynamic tags will extract the UTM contents of a URL when a user enters your site. The UTM data will then be available throughout the session. As an example, when a user enters your site through the following URL: https://yoursite.com/?utm_source=google the google word will be stored as the utm_source throughout the session of that user. This means that if you insert the utm_source dynamic tag in any page through the Webpage Personalizer tool, the tag will be replaced with the google word. Of course the text replacement will only occur if the personalization is associated with an automation rule. Learn more about automation rules.
