Getting started with Visitor Intelligence

Recommended reading 

Optimizely Visitor Intelligence is the user interface for viewing and filtering visitor profiles, and creating segments to be used as in omnichannel marketing campaigns. Visitor interaction data such as viewing a product, adding a product to a wishlist, or placing an order, is tracked and saved in Optimizely Profile Store.

1. Before you begin

Visitor Intelligence will not track any data by itself as it depends on Optimizely Profile Store. You must first install Profile Store for data tracking and storage. 

2. Install and configure Visitor Intelligence

As part of the onboarding, Optimizely will send the required configuration keys and credentials to the technical contact for your project. Use the keys to install and configure the tracking for your websites. Contact Optimizely for questions regarding the onboarding process.
