Course Description

Personalization is the next big wave in digital marketing. The days of “one-size-fits-all” marketing are over, and hyper-personalization is the new norm. Digital marketers and site owners are being asked to do more with less to engage customers, segment their audience, and offer highly tailored content. This course provides an introduction to the domain of Personalization and demonstrates ways in which Personalization and Dynamic Content can be implemented in Drupal.

This session will go over how personalization works within Drupal using contrib modules and external tools. We'll also show some examples of how to keep personalization in mind from initial planning stages to final launch and beyond:

  • Why and how to plan a personalization strategy early.
  • Developing your site so that as many elements can be swappable as possible.
  • How clean markup and best practices with Javascript will allow you to integrate with any personalization system.
  • Making sure that elements more likely to be personalized are in an easy to update format, not buried in a view in a block in a pane in a panel.

This presentation assumes an intermediate understanding of Drupal site building, no previous personalization experience is required.
