Video Transcript

I’m sorry to do this to you guys well actually
I’m not really that sorry because what I’m

about to show you can benefit you significantly
and I’m talking about website personalization

let me show you what it is really quick here’s
a website that I had made a long tutorial

video for about two months ago when I she
how to make this entire website and there’s

this headline here word says this all the
time it’s is when it comes to reliability

we are the one you need but you know right
now it’s the evening what if instead of this

when a particular time of day happens the
headline changes to this having an electrical

problem this evening we are here to help this
is dynamic web personalization based upon

some criteria in this example the criteria
is the time of day and I’m in a show you a

new deal from AppSumo these things are just
so stinking addicting but I’m a show you what

it is what it does and how you can use a tool
like this to do more with your website hi

my name is Adam from where I
make WordPress tutorial videos for non-techies

if you’re new here consider clicking on the
subscribe button if you don’t want to miss

a thing click on the bell and anything I talked
to will be linked in the video description

box below but I just say the link right now
if you want to head on over there this is

going to definitely be a must buy for you
just go to I keep forgetting

the name of the service it’s unless you know
unless you and Ellie SS on limitless summers

and I think useless but know this is not useless
is unless so less now let

me try to you on unpack what this is so here
is the AppSumo deal page when you go to that

link it’s gonna take
you right here and what this is is a web site

personalization platform or service that is
so easy to use and I’m to show you in this

video and essentially you’re going to be able
to personalize any page on any number of websites

that you have and you can be able to do it
without editing anything on the website is

very easy to use interface to change headlines
to change images and there’s also something

called dynamic insertion and that’s where
you can maybe insert someone’s name I haven’t

gotten that to work yet I just wanted to make
this video but I have been playing around

with this platform now you can change content
dynamically based upon 20 different criteria

points so for me in that example was the time
of day I used the time of day so it is that

it to be a 4 PM to say this writer show this
variation of the homepage which just had a

different headline and do that until 6 PM
and that is just one of the triggers that

it gives you in order to determine which variation
of your website to show or that a particular

page so let me try to unpack this for you
right now know this is a website personalization

which right now is getting hot 2018 is going
to be sizzling red hot okay it’s getting really

hot right now now this is not the full type
of personalization and I’m not talking down

on this let me give you an example of that
there is this service called right message

and what this does is similar but it can mix
in with your email service providers that

already store your web visitors name email
address maybe some tags to segment them and

this type of service connection with your
email service provider in order to dynamically

change your website based upon what you know
about someone okay so so that’s what right

message does what unless does is not that
it’s based upon other criteria so but there

is some tricks that you can do with it so
for example if traffic is coming from a Facebook

ad that would be information that you know
on someone even though you don’t really have

that person identified yet and you can show
different variation if they’re coming from

Facebook or some kind of paid advertisement
you’re able to do that with on less so let’s

try to look at what you’re getting now this
is service the plan that you’re getting is

normally $99 per month and year to see services
like that sprouting up all over the place

in the next 12 months so that price is kind
of going to be your typical price now the

AppSumo deal and this is a must buy it’s going
to be $49 and it’s this is just a one-time

fee so you’re not paying 100 bucks a month
to just paying the $49 so here’s a bunch of

information on kind of to give you a better
idea of how easy this is to use and kind of

the purpose of having something like this
but I’ll tell you right now this is actually

something that is going to be useful to anyone
that has a website now if you’re someone that

has any kind of paid traffic whether Google
AdSense Facebook ads twitter ads Instagram

adds YouTube ads you should be using something
like this because you’re paying for that traffic

and you want to do everything that you can
possibly do on your website to make sure when

they make it to your website it’s kind of
a connected experience so if the ad says one

thing and then they go to your website is
just the same old website there is this disconnection

that happens so with something like this you
can dynamically change the page you send someone

to from an advertisement based upon where
they’re clicking from or these different criteria

points okay so there’s rules and stuff like
that I want to show you all of this in a moment

but I’m trying my best to explain it in common
terms so here’s an example of that dynamic

insertion what they’re doing and this is screen
right here treat recipient that would be like

in someone’s name to some flowers or something
along those maybe your wife or your husband

something along the lines of that but I haven’t
use the dynamic insertion just yet so this

right here and I’m in a show you is amazing
it’s this interface for actually changing

a headline or picture or maybe text on a button
or something like that it’s so easy to use

I mean if you ever use a page builder or a
landing page builder or something like that

Juergen have no problems creating variations
of your webpages that you send people to so

we got that dynamic content thing right here
there is analytics everything gets tracked

now there are couple caps in this that I want
to show you here in a moment so here’s were

talks about the deal because normally hundred
bucks a month but you’re going to pay 50 bucks

here’s where is some of the limits are it’s
good to give you a 50,000 unique visits per

month now you might be thinking that’s limiting
it depends actually how much traffic if you’re

using paid ads how much traffic you’re actually
grabbing or acquiring through a paid advertisement

so just you know even the cost per thousand
unique’s over is small compared to what you

would gain by increasing your conversion rate
so you get 50,000 unique visits now if you’re

just a normal website a lot of normal websites
they might only have 10,000 people come to

it in this personalization is really nice
for service based business the way I was just

showing you where just says more a reference
as the morning the evening or the night or

even for like restaurants work and dynamically
change the menu or something like that say

restaurant has a happy hour well when you
be nice during happy hour hours right when

someone or maybe a half-hour before right
and someone hit your website it says hey come

join us for our happy hour it starts at three
and it goes till six or something like that

this is this is a website personalization
and this is really going to be the sizzling

red hot topic of things to implement into
thousand 18 guaranteed so you have the 50,000

unique visits with this you can use it on
unlimited variations I see what that is unlimited

websites if you have 20 websites you want
a little personalization here little personalization

there you can totally do that with this here
is the targeting conditions as you’re getting

20 there’s 20 different targeting conditions
so it’s can be location so it’s location aware

by country I actually don’t know how deep
that goes obviously it’ll probably go by state

and maybe even city but I think some of the
city targeting for location could be off sometimes

obviously time was the example I gave you
device device is actually really good if you

you have a website that’s selling a or promoting
a mobile app while someone comes on the android

where you get to show him a button for an
Apple device you would just show them the

android one rights behavior in you TM parameters
you TM parameters are it’s a universal way

of putting some additional information in
a URL so you you TM parameter to be Facebook

ad so or Facebook ad one Facebook add to or
something along those lines so your website

or wherever you’re sending them changes based
upon where they’re coming from I subdue this

old school when I had I had this business
about 10 years ago and we would do lots of

different print advertising and I’d have to
get a different phone number for every single

one just so I can personalize their experience
when they called in I like the Internet so

much better now anyways okay so you can this
was interesting I discovered unlimited roles

as you can have users come in I don’t know
the best way to fully leverage that I would

assume multiple staff I don’t know if you
can assign them to projects or a variation

so if you have clients and you want to do
this for a customer or client that you can

give them a login but most when even login
anyway possesses how works this is to be interesting

to figure this out this dynamic contour and
content insertion I’m going to have to figure

that one out in a future video maybe I’ll
make a future video about that so you get

this off 49 boxes guys one of those must buys
I mean this is literally one of those must

bite and I hate bringing this out right after
this black Friday cyber Monday type weekend

so anyways it’s called be a professional plan
that you get and I want to show you inside

right now and I want to show you this really
cool interface because anyone can the literally

create a variation anyone can you could be
the most non-techie person on planet Earth

in your to be able to do that so the deals
actually to be live when I publish my video

self publish my video this video in just a
short two hours but here’s also those deal

points so to come to this page just go to I’m having a hard time

remembering the name on Les and I went out
post a link to this video in the comment section

if you see that their new finding this video
helpful if you can click yes you found it

helpful that would help more people be able
to see this video and kind of understand this

platform a little better okay so here I am
I am actually logged in and actually let me

get to the root of when I login right here
so what happens is this will work with shopper

five magenta though all these different platforms
of the lead pages but I’m thinking would really

needed for lead pages of course this is a
WordPress channel and I’ve integrated it with

WordPress there is a WordPress plug-in that’s
available you would install that and you can

use that so let me show you what you would
do when you buy when you buy the AppSumo deal

you get a little voucher code you come to
the website you create an account and then

when you log into your account you click on
account click on subscription and then there’s

an option here to put in the voucher code
so that’s how you do it rights and then here’s

traffic so I guess this is showing me how
much traffic I have left my plan limit is

the 50,000 like I said oh the overages I did
want to look at the overages real quick one

go to the pricing here I’m assuming this is
the same two dollars per 1000 additional impressions

let me tell you if you’re doing page racket
paid traffic that’s a drop in the bucket right

you know you could spend a fortune on paid
traffic and any little bit of money you could

spend to increase your conversions it’s definitely
worth it so this is the plan you’re getting

with AppSumo also on their website here there
some great examples of using the time condition

location device whether behavior parameters
so example for the location right here this

is just the normal one but if they’re in Amsterdam
here’s a different variation where there’s

a picture of Amsterdam and references Amsterdam
so this is web personalization’s you can come

and take a look at that so alright let’s go
ahead and show you how this works so what

you do when you’re here you just go ahead
and click this right here and you add a new

webpage so you can see I’ve already added
the URL to that website show the

okay and so all you do is you would go ahead
and enter in your URL right there and then

a skinny show this right here in is basically
likely you let me show y’all go ahead and

put another one in here there is a put my
WP in there and I click on create your message

just can add it right down here so now I have and right here I can do a little

walk-through of what to do next I found the
video little hard to follow and then right

here I can start creating everything for it
so let me go back to webpages and now you

can see I’ve got the two webpages ears you
can keep doing this on a page by page basis

they could be different domain names it’s
all included with the plan the only Is that

50,000 unique visitors so let me go ahead
and click into the one that I created right

here so what you do is you first going here
and then I want to go ahead and I’m going

to click on details right here so what we
have is these three tabs personalize distribute

and analyze so and personalize this is where
we are going to create our variations and

then here is this nice little slider so if
I move it this way say 50-50 or very go 50-50

it’s gonna say 50 people 50% of your visitors
organist see the personalization and the other

50% of the people will just see the normal
version of your website so for me I went ahead

and just made this 100% because I wanted to
make sure that it showed that evening message

so what you would do is you click right here
for new variation and then give it a variation

name so why don’t I change this to late night
so there it as I entered late night him to

go ahead and click on create and then here
we have this new variation called late night

summit to go ahead and click on audience and
I’m going to add a condition and so this is

where I’m in a choose time so here are the
different triggers I’m in a choose time and

I’m going to choose you can choose date or
time when you choose time a miniatures time

so this would be David be great for Christmas
maybe you have a different variation on Christmas

it is easier to do it with this service and
it is the re-code something right Merry Christmas

from all of us are right so the time I’ll
do every day so I’ll just leave that time

right there I’m going to add a second condition
right here in this is going to be time again

but I’m going to say right here until so this
is saying to the first condition is every

day from this time to this time sign click
right here and let me just go ahead and give

it an extra hour there just like that and
we have this variation so from 540 7:59 PM

it’s good to show this variation so I want
to go ahead and click on save audience alright

so there’s my late night now this one right
here is probably going to conflict with it

so let me go ahead and delete that variation
okay so now what we want to do is click on

edit page and let’s see how this works here
I was doing it in a different web browser

when I initially created it so it’s opened
up and yet this is what happened to me so

it opens up and you could see the URL is my
website but then it has this different bit

of information and the back of the URL so
now all I have to do is hover over something

I want to change so I was changing the headline
and so I can hover over the headline right

here I can click and then now I can start
changing everything in this headline to say

whatever I want to say this little green spring
is in this little green the spinning thing

is my grandma early okay so I’m to go ahead
and put a different headline in okay so I’m

not feeling super creative today I just wrote
I know it’s late but were here to help you

any time of day or nights okay so I just put
that there now we have the little controls

right here so what I would do is I would go
ahead and click on publish and then we have

as little radar thing and when it’s done we
already have it all published so now I can

go back and I’ve edited my page in this is
literally all ready to go so what I want to

do is I’m in a go here I bet if I hit refresh
I actually don’t know what will happen I removed

this variation I might have to do this is
an incognito window I might have to close

it and then open it up again because what
happens it will let you see what happens I’ll

go ahead and click on refresh and see if it
changes if not I’ll have to open it net income

up there it is a changed as I know it’s late
but we are here to help you any time of day

or night see isn’t that a nicer message someone
comes to your website and sees that and they’re

like oh this is the person to call this is
just one example obviously okay so now let’s

see right now it’s 545 let me go back here
and let’s go ahead and edit that audience

so it’s 545 let me change this to 545 click
on okay or were just going to chill out for

a minute for bed now it’s 546 so I bet if
I refreshed it might stay with that message

it might change I might have to close the
incognito and then open it up as a fresh session

in order for it to work so will just give
that a moment all right slim click on save

audience I’ve tweaked my time a little bit
right there and so we have a distribution

engine this right here is where it tells you
about how to get this on your website and

this is also where you would make it live
or not live so I didn’t want to apply these

rules I can just disable it right here and
so for WordPress’s said just go put the plug

in in and it gave me a little snippet of code
the pop and it was really easy analyze this

is cool you can analyze the visits and see
how that’s working out there it is you have

some analytics that you can go off of technically
you can use this it for a B split testing

but the thing you usually have with a B split
testing is there some kind of way of determining

which of the variations wins and which one
loses based upon some criteria so if it’s

purchasing something and then you send them
to thank you for page you would say which

one of these variations more people actually
made it to the thank you page there isn’t

that goal feature in here so this isn’t really
a true AB split testing it’s in a be split

engine but not really for testing the results
of your AB split tests so just if you were

concerned with that okay so I’m going to my
refresh let’s see what happens let’s see if

the message actually changes and it didn’t
change the I love that I love the fact that

I can have a homepage that changes based upon
how you found the homepage and it just does

this all automatically forming yet you saw
how easy that was through it to create the

various variations so there is a lot more
to this app I only showed you one example

using one of the criteria but the point was
that it’s super easy to set up these variations

and you can get really creative with it so
anyways this is on less you can check out

the deal by going to
it just one word there and it’s going to take

you right on over here to the AppSumo page
on the play around with this more if you’re

not in my Facebook group is a great Facebook
group for the channel and I’ll probably be

able to talk more about this deal in that
Facebook group but this is a really cool thing

I really think it might be a must buy it’s
definitely a must buy that’s the only reason

that I am making this video putting it here
on the channel if you have a website where

are you have clients I’m pretty sure if you
just sat and thought about the ways you can

use this you would come up with some very
powerful ways that you can actually use this

and I’ve only I haven’t talked about the full
feature set you actually they have it so you

don’t even have to put the WordPress plug-in
on the website it’ll give you its own link

its own URL from the platform so you can send
people to that link and it would show everything

through that there’s a lot of neat things
that this platform does and ultimately when

you’re thinking should I spend $49 on this
I think you really should thinking can this

tool help me make $49 can this will help me
make obviously more than that would this give

me some kind of a competitive advantage in
some way and I’m sure if you think about that

I’m sure there’s a lot of creative ways that
you can use this to increase any kind of conversion

ratio whatever the conversion ratio is on
your website maybe you change your call to

action based upon whose seeing your page make
a targeted call to action where the just want

to email address you want some of the purchase
something whatever it is others so many different

ways that you can use something like this
so anyways that is what I have for you am

wondering if you’re familiar with other platforms
like this and you want to talk about them

below if you have any other creative ideas
of how this kind of tool can be used for the

different scenarios that your and maybe with
some your clients are some of the things that

you are doing on the Internet I think this
is pretty easy to use a pretty cool tool so

anyways the BP less and I will
thank you for watching and I’ll see in the

next video

My passion is making the best quality video tutorial online, for non-techies. When I am not behind the camera, I am usually helping out one of my YouTube subscribers.
