Opt-In (Getting Subscribers)


Before you can communicate with users via push notifications, you need to get their permissionfirst (they need to opt in, or subscribe). Opt-In Rate is one of the most important metrics - the success of your marketing communications depends on how many subscribers you have.

To get more subscribers, show new users in-app banners explaining the benefits of receiving your push notifications. Also, allow users to choose the topics they want to be updated on. This way, they will see the value of your messages and know that they won't be spammed with irrelevant content.

Customer onboarding is crucial for moving new customers down the sales funnel by telling them about the values of your services and motivating them to make theirfirst purchases. Successful onboarding speeds up service adoption, making users more satisfied with their experience and typically increasing user LTV by up to 300%.

Onboarding via push notifications and emails works great for user retention. Remind users about your app by talking about the benefits of a certain feature. Unlike in-apps, a push notification will be displayed on the users' screen even if the phone is locked.
