Web Push

Web Push notifications are short messages displayed on a recipient’s device. They are a new, convenient, and fast way to communicate with customers. You can send them instantly or plan a delivery for a preferable date. A notification consists of a small square icon, a title, and a short text, while the whole notification is a link directing to a selected website. It displays within a browser, even if a user is currently not on your website. Users do not have to fill in any personal details – the only requirement for this kind of notification to appear is that the users agree to receive them via an agreement form.

With Web Push notifications:

  • you will address significant information to your contacts both by means of a computer and a mobile device after they have agreed to receive notification separately on either of them.
  • you will increase the group of your recipients. Except for opt-in users, you will also address not monitored users,  those with opt-out status or even those who are not in your database. A notification will be sent to everybody who accepts notification and you will have the opportunity to convert anonymous users into identified contacts,
  • you will send notifications directly to a recipient’s device in real time. It results in 30 times greater click rate than in the case of an average email.
  • you will react to contacts behavior – you can create a notification as an action to a selected event in automation rules.

Agreement to receive notifications

Web push notifications may be sent to everyone who agrees to receive notifications from your site by means of an agreement form. Learn how to create the agreement form for web push notifications.

Web push notifications are sent by means of a browser. To guarantee the possibility to modify a form and attractiveness of a web push notification in the SALESmanago platform, a user must also accept subscription in their browser window. Moreover, the monitoring cookies assigned by SALESmanago are not connected with the agreement form cookie. Therefore, clearing cookies does not remove the agreement. After clearing the cookies and re-entering the site, a user will again see the agreement form, however, the notifications will be sent to them regardless of whether they agree again.

How to create a web push notification?

  1. Create an agreement form.
  2. Create a new notification – go to Website Marketing → Web Push and click + Add new web push notification.

TIP: Remember that a user must agree to subscription in the agreement form and confirm the browser message to be able to receive Web Push. For both Web Push and Rich Web Push use the same agreement form. To see how to create an agreement form, go to Web Push – Agreement Form.

 

Settings


[1] Web Push notification name – enter the notification name.
Click Next.

 

[1] Title – enter the Web Push notification title. Up to 48 characters.

Contact group

[1] Agreement form selection – select a proper agreement form.

IMPORTANT: Only one agreement form may be active on one URL address, so you need to select the same agreement form for both Web Push and Rich Web Push notifications. Since a particular agreement form is linked with a particular recipient group, select many agreement forms to address many recipients on different URL addresses.

[2] Group of recipients – select contacts based on criteria:

  • identified contacts the monitored contacts
  • anonymous contacts the contacts that are not monitored and not saved in SALESmanago system,
  • all contacts,
  • select by tags – enter tags of contacts that you want to select for or exclude from web push delivery.

[3] Send on a date set a particular date and time for Web Push notification to appear.

[4] Lifespan  – set the time of Web Push notification validity. The validity is counted starting from the sending date. If a contact opens the browser after the set validity time, the Web Push notification will not show up.

IMPORTANT: After sending, the notification displays only once for every user as soon as it is possible (for example when a user opens a browser).

To queue the notification on a server, click Send. The notification will be sent to all contacts fulfilling the proper conditions at the moment of queuing.

TIP: You can also send Web Push notifications while creating your automation rules in Automation Processes → Automation Rules → Action: Send Web Push notification.
