These are just some of the ways in which Web Push Notifications can increase your engagement, sales, brand-awareness and more. As we have discussed in previous posts, the rate of engagement with web push notifications is like nothing before it. As far as visibility is concerned, you are talking about numbers nearing 100% and engagement is also pretty great, over 10 times that of traditional email by some estimates.

But even more than that, you have to keep in mind the fact that web push notifications are just plain fun. They are easy and quick for the user to see, they are highly relevant and they are not as time-consuming as traditional email.

It’s very hard for users to just ignore your web push notifications, unlike emails, which can rot in their inboxes or just never been seen at al.

This is not to say that web push notifications are a full replacement for email communications, but they sure are an excellent complement to them and you should make sure to integrate them in your marketing toolkit, we are confident that you will be pleasantly surprised by the results!
