OneSignal

OneSignal is fantastic for getting push messages out on new content, special offers, and anything that someone visiting your website would generally be interested in. Keeping your content engaging is a great way to build an organic audience in a world that relies on social media traffic to fuel web traffic. It has a big opportunity to be overused, however.

If you have a large or small blog following/audience, this is an excellent tool to help keep readers engaged and on top of your new content releases. You can also utilize this product for automated DRIP campaigns that will, following a schedule you create, notify users at preset intervals to help nurture your leads or existing customers as part of your sales funnel. Even new bloggers with smaller audiences can utilize a tool like this to help generate more consistent web traffic to your content. I am averaging a +16% clickthrough rate regularly on my RSS to push notifications after just a few months of use.

  • Easy-to-use admin system; even non-technical team members could understand what to do without training.
  • Flexibility of configuration and visual previews of what the alert experience would be like made it easy explain options before implementation
  • Segment system and API gave us enough control to serve notifications in the right language, which was important for our multi-lingual website

  • I can tell they are based somewhere on the other side of the world, so when it's middle of the day here in the USA, they aren't always very responsive.
  • There have been a couple hiccups with billing issues that mainly stemmed from them not having an internal billing system, but had it outsourced to another company.

Their customer support has been top-notch. They are able to assist you in getting through any problems that you may have and respond in a very timely manner. I've dealt with them on 4-5 instances over the years and my issues were always resolved within a matter of a few business days.

Their support staff are experts who are beyond helpful! I needed support with a certificate issue, after migrating one of our sites from HTTP to HTTPS, They handled it and helped very effectively, absolutely loved the cooperation. They saved me a lot of time with guiding me over the issues and I didn't needed to search on forums and read technical documentation on my own.

Alternatives Considered

OneSignal

OneSignal is the one that has more integrations with plugins, external API and that is completely free and easy to install. They have a very good UI with many options and they will never ask for money to use this service. You can have unlimited subscribers and you can send unlimited messages for free.

  • I have no data on that since the company that this was implemented for has since folded.
  • It would have been a very good thing to increase sales if we had the chance to actually use it more, but we shut the site down...
  • The more things we could add to our marketing mix (especially low cost ones) the better off we would be.
