Managing profiles
Managing profiles


Adobe Campaign profiles represent all of the contacts stored in the database. Each profile corresponds to one entry in the database which contains the necessary information for that profile to be targeted, qualified and individually tracked. This means that a profile can be: a client, a prospect, an individual subscribed to a newsletter, a recipient, a user, or any other denomination depending on the organization.


The different types of profiles and their management modes are presented in the Profiles section.

Adobe Campaign provides a report that displays the number of active profiles. For more information, refer to Active profiles.


To enable you to deliver relevant and effective messages, Adobe Campaign integrates advanced analysis and targeting functionalities. Thanks to the workflows and the query editor, you can construct audiences that will be targeted by your marketing campaigns, depending on the information that you have on them, their activities, and their marketing history. This allows you to filter subscribed profiles, sample, or create target audiences on an unlimited number of criteria.

The mode for creating audiences is detailed in the Audiences section.
