Can any one please explain the steps to create banners and triggers in smart target using tridion publications

  • Hello Habeeb and thanks for asking on Tridion Stack Exchange. Are you using SmartTarget as a user or setting this up for other users? The answer depends on whether you already have SmartTarget setup and if your role is user or developer. Some depend on your specific implementation, so additional background will help you get good answers. Have you followed the instructions in the documentation for your version of SDL Tridion and SmartTarget? The setup differs across versions. Jul 3, 2015 at 11:56

  • You'll need to publish your banners, set up your templates, and define your promotions in the Business Manager. If you're a business user, work with your development team. If you're a developer, then start by updating your Template Building Blocks. Jul 3, 2015 at 12:24

Hope you have done all the configuration set up for Smart Target Implementation.


  • Define your Trigger first.


  • implement SmartTarget page region by adding elements to your Dreamweaver Templates.

  • When you have added SmartTarget page regions to your Dreamweaver Templates defining where promotional content is inserted, you need to add the ID values of the SmartTarget page regions to a custom field in the SmartTarget Manager so that marketers can map promotions to a SmartTarget page region where the promotion should be displayed.
