Push traffic meaning

Push traffic is generated from push ads (also known as push notification ads). This is an ad format that advanced affiliate marketers have been working with for several years. 

When it comes to push ads traffic, the users begin to receive advertising notifications after visiting the website, where there is a subscription form to receive notifications from the website.

After acceptance, the user added to the database of the website owner or to the database of push ads network. Then users begin to receive advertising push notifications. It doesn’t matter if the user leave the website where he saw the subscription form. The subscription data is already in the database, and the user will receive notifications through the browser technologies.

Users can subscribe to web push notifications from any device: desktop, mobile, tablet.

What do push notifications consist of?

Now you know what is push traffic, so it is time to figure out what is push ads.

Push traffic is generated by push notifications. It consists of a small image (an icon) and two text lines: a title and a description. The main image complements them.

A small push notification window pops at the right corner of the monitor or appears on your smartphone screen over other windows. The users tend to see notifications from messengers there, so this part of the screen usually attracts the user’s attention.

The thing is that push notification ads are easily noticed no matter what device you use.

What are push notification ads?

What’s the power of push traffic?

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).

What are the advantages of using push traffic?

1. 100% visibility and no banner blindness.
2. Push traffic is real people.
3. High CTR.
4. Low cost of push traffic.

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.

Who can earn with push traffic?

Traffic from push notifications can generate stable income for at least 2 categories of people:

  • site owners, who want to monetize websites,
  • people who want to promote their own or someone else’s advertising offers.

Websites owners can provide their sites for collecting subscriptions to push notifications. They will profit from the traffic that their pages drive. Such people are also called publishers. To become a publisher, you need to contact the advertising network and place a script on your website that will display a subscription form for push notifications. It does not require any changes in the website design and does not affect SEO.

However, site owners can collect a subscriber base for push notifications only for their own needs: send information about discounts, news, and more, without passing it on to third parties.

Affiliate marketers are the second group of people interested in buying push traffic. Push traffic has much fewer restrictions on the choice of offers than Facebook, which is why affiliates use this format to avoid cloaking troubles.

Both website owners and affiliate marketers meet at push traffic networks. These are specific ad platforms that buy new push subscribers from publishers and sell the opportunity to show them ads to marketers. Let’s have a closer look to push traffic networks.

How to launch a successful push traffic campaign?

If you want your first push ads campaign to have a better chance of profit, use this list of tips. It sums up the main mistakes any marketer can make from the beginning.

  • Start by testing different offers. So you’ll understand what will work on the traffic of a specific ad network.
  • Divide your campaigns into mobile and desktop. The bids for them can be different. Moreover, it will be easier to optimize.
  • Run a campaign with at least 5 creatives. An ad campaign with 1 or 2 creatives is less competitive than with 5 or 10. Sometimes the campaign is launched with 5 creatives, but only one converts. The fewer the options, the less likely you’ll find a converting one.
  • Pay more attention to the icons and text than to the big picture. Change them for a quality test.
  • Use emojis in the headline, they can improve your ad CTR.
  • Make sure that you set up a daily budget at the start. This will not allow an overspend.
  • Be sure to set up the S2S postback for accurate optimization. Keep in mind that Google Analytics is the worth choice for push ads.
  • Limit the number of ad impressions to 1-2 per day not to overwhelm the users. This is the optimal amount at the start.
  • And most importantly: remember, even successful creatives need to be changed from time to time.
