Content Set Personalization

In Creating User Segments you created a Segment called American Engineers. Now, you’ll use it to demonstrate Content Set Personalization. For this example, create a Content Set to be the default displayed on the Home page. Then you’ll modify it to create a personalized variation containing technical articles for members of the American Engineers segment.

If you’re not familiar with Content Set, see the Creating Content Sets article before you get started here.
