After you build a target with Target Builder, it's important to perform some QA testing prior to adding it to an experience.
There are a few things to consider to do this.
Using an IP Address Target for Testing
To test a target, you can add an IP Address target to a Web experience. When configuring the experience's WHO settings, select Location for the target type, click IP Address, and then input your IP address for testing purposes.
Remember to remove this target before launching the experience to your site's visitors.
Activating the Experience
Before you can test any targets that you created in Target Builder, you must first create and activate an experience.
Custom Targets and Caching
Targets created in Target Builder take up to 30 minutes to cache in Monetate's servers. As a result, you must keep the experience active for at least that long to track the target properly.
Using Monetate Inspector
You can use the Monetate Inspector browser plug-in to check for any custom targets present on the page. To do this, open Inspector and then click the Components tab.
See Install the Monetate Inspector Browser Plug-In for more information.
Submit a support ticket using the Monetate Technical Support portal (support.monetate.com) if you have additional questions about QA testing targets that you create.
