How ConvertBox identifies website visitors in Gist
Before ConvertBox can identify visitors on your site they must take one of the following actions…
1. The visitor submits a ConvertBox form on your site containing an email field.
2. The visitor visits your website with their Gist email passed through in the URL using the supported targeting parameter. By adding this parameter to all email links to your site the visitor will be sync and tracked regardless of which device they use.
To target new Gist contacts who submitted your ConvertBox form no further action is needed, this will happen automatically.
To target existing Gist contacts you will need to use option #2. Simply add the following parameter to the end of all your email links…
Here is an example of what your email hyperlink to your site will look like.
Once the parameter is added when the visitor clicks the email link going to your site, the contact ID will be passed through, ConvertBox will identify the visitor and begin targeting them based on their Gist data set in your targeting rules.
From that point on whenever the visitor returns to your site using the same device, ConvertBox will be able to identify the visitor.
