Push Notifications – A Boon or a Bother?

Let’s talk about push notifications.

They have always been a debated issue in the UX community. We can all agree we have a love/hate relation with them. We love when our phones buzz to let us know that our Zomato order is on its way but hate when we’re woken up in the middle of the night by that alert from our app demanding that it’s time to be updated.

For marketers, they are a great way to send users gentle reminders or send them your latest offerings. However, for some users, push notifications are a nightmare which not only kills productivity but also hinders the user experience.

Push Notifications – A Boon or a Bother?

What are Push Notifications?

Push notifications are small messages that can reach audiences anywhere and anytime. Users don’t have to be in the app or using their devices to receive them and hence, they have become a very popular marketing tool.

How to use Push Notifications to your benefit?

1. Send customised push notifications, tailored to your users’ interest:

Make your users feel that the push notification has been sent only to them. Customise the message based on their preferences, interests and location. Ensure that you only send relevant notifications to keep the users engaged.

2. Send push notifications at the right time:

Don’t send push notifications at odd times like when the users are likely to be asleep. Determine the optimal time to send out the notifications as well as the number of times you will send them out.

Avoid sending out trivial messages or bombarding the user with 10 messages in a row.

3. Avoid jargon or long messages:

Push notifications are meant to catch the interest of the user instantly. If the message contains long explanations or unheard of jargon it will end up being ignored.

Clearly highlight the benefit or point of the push notification and ensure it is easy to grasp.
