Push notification meaning

Push notification (or push ads) is a popping up message looking very much like the new message from the messenger. It contains 2 pictures, a title, a description, and a link to some landing page. Push notification appears in a separate small window in the right corner of the screen on a user’s computer or the top of the mobile phone.

There is no need to ask: push notification… what is it? You must have seen notifications on some of your device and at least once clicked them going to some website. These visits to the website or landing page are push traffic itself.

What’s the power of push notifications?

Push notifications have a number of advantages that’s why they are one of the most effective ad formats. The most important point is that you can’t miss them. With the emergence of different ad types, people start becoming “blind” and many ad channels lose their effectiveness. Besides, the user lands to the pre-landing or landing page just by one click – it increases the possibility of conversion. The user can also see notifications even if he was offline (later, when he will be online again).

One more important benefit is low CPC in comparison with other ads channels like Facebook or Google Ads. CPC starts from $0,05 at RichAds ad network.

That’s why it’s much more profitable to work with push notifications than with other ad formats.

The main advantage of push notifications is that you can use it running the offer appropriate for a wide audience. So, you can reach a huge mass of people using just one offer and one traffic type.
