In this article, you’ll learn how to create an offer recommender banner. 


Objective: Retention.
Difficulty: Beginner.

This strategy is part of our pool of templates. To implement it in your account, access your Connectif account and go to “Workflows Create new workflow”. In the Create from template section, enter the name of the workflow in the search engine (Offer recommender) then click Select and Create.


How it works

To display the banner, we’re going to configure inline web content in the workflow. This will appear with the products on offer when the contact is browsing the website.
