Wingify offers PushCrew, the company's push notification platform that supports notifications for a variety of situations, such as a connected call-to-action (CTAs), timed notifications, segmenting tools to personalize notifications based on various parameters (e.g. location, device, browser), and API to satisfy customization needs or set up more complex push notifications, with requisite consulting and support for tackling more challenging scenarios.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/gq/mE/5VPJFVHCWATG.JPEGPushCrew is a great tool to help you notify your site's loyal reader's of new content on your site!So PushCrew was what I chose to solve my issue of Push Notifications for blog posts for my house cleaning and commercial cleaning website. Aside from various lead capture points across my site, I wanted a way to notify the dedicated followers of my blog a way to be notified once we published a new post. I noticed that when I advertise certain blog posts on FB it generates a lot of traffic, so this was another way to let me people who have already been to my site (and who liked it) a way to keep in touch better. I first discovered PushCrew from another site that I frequent, and decided to look into more. I was very impressed to see entire feature set. While I only wanted to solve my Push Notification problem, but I also saw that I could incorporate more of the advanced automation features as I grew my following.,Easy Setup/ Installation of Push Notifications for your Blog Easy customization of notifications, and scheduling of automated notification series messaging Pricing is fair considering the amount of functionality offered, and the potential ROI for sites with large followings Easy to understand user interface,Easier time customizing messaging using short codes Smoother design of popup notification so it does not look so generic and system generated a/b testing for push notification popup styles,10,Average +16.7% CTR with my RSS Feed to Push Notifications While PushCrew has helped me solve my RSS Feed to Push Notification issue, I am still perfecting my messaging to increase the number of users who allow me to send them push notifications. The basic package is kind of pricey for newer websites. The free tier is a nice way to help new sites get established then pay for your advanced features.,10,10,NoPushCrew is stable, easy to use, fairly configurable, and has been giving us great results!Our marketing team uses PushCrew to manage push notifications for our website, sending out updates to our subscribers for product announcements, upcoming webinars, and blog posts. Non-technical team members find the admin system easy to use, while our developers were able to do custom tweaks for how and where our alerts come up fairly easily. Both subscription rates and engagement rates on the alerts we send out are much higher than we anticipated, winning me over from initial skepticism about the value of using a service like PushCrew.,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,Would've liked more options for the two-step opt-in or "soft push" UI. We ended up not using it due to the extra work it would've taken to get it to look and work the way we wanted from a design/UX perspective The billing system isn't inside the admin interface, which led to some confusion when we were switching administrators Built in workflow for setting up multi-lingual sites would be a boon to companies marketing in more than one language,9,We saw surprisingly high subscription rates when we launched push notifications on our site using PushCrew, and it's been consistently building since then. Engagement is fairly high on push notifications we send out, ranging between 2-11% Put in the mix with our other outreach mechanisms, push notifications has been a strong performer that requires very little effort on the part of our team,8,8,NoI use PushCrew and I love it!It is used solely for marketing purposes, however, the current site is no longer in business. The basic reason we started using PushCrew was because it offered a push notification similar to that of what we saw on many other sites. We saw that as a great way to directly interact with existing users of our site. Having push notifications allows us to gain insight relatively quickly when we make marketing changes to our site and have existing users interact with those changes right away vs just posting and waiting for results to come in as people find the website.,It easily allows distributing marketing information across registered users. It is very easy to use. It requires little or no knowledge (learning curve). It gives us yet another angle to approach customer contact.,A "prettier" interface. So many websites are now using the same methodology, so it has the risk of being "lost" in the crowd. Because many websites are using the same type of system, it is starting to become an annoying factor when visiting websites, not unlike popups.,10,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.,5,10It's really nice and easy to use push notofication toolsPushCrew is used for sending push notifications with new publisher articles on our huge medical-related site. It's based on our RSS file. This is an alternate way of sending notifications to newsletter. We can grab some traffic to our users without any work.,Sending notifications with new articles on our site based on RSS feed works very well Sending manual notification is very easy and fast You can send reach notifications with images You can segment your users into groups and send them notifications separately.,You can't pause sending or limit maximum number of notifications daily from RSS feed It's more expensive than other tools,9,Good amount of traffic of recurring users from push notifications It is expensive but we have to use it as one of the traffic channels,9,10,YesVery useful and user friendly tool! Highly recommend!We started to use PushCrew at some of our product brands, and plan to extend it for more in the future. We love the UX and functionality, as it's easy to make sub-accounts, which are great when you have different brands and this way you can keep them separated. The technical solutions they provide are of a really high and professional level, the use of PushCrew service solved our problem with reaching mobile devices.,Easy, guided setup. Easy implementation. User friendly. You're able to make your changes very fast, apply them and you're ready! The customer service is great, had a question after migrating to HTTPS, they provided fast and very accurate help, how to make it use on migrated site. Supports mobile devices.,There's a little bit missing on the multi-language admin panel, only English is available, and not all of our brand managers speak English well.,10,Not calculated yet, we are in process of refactoring measurements on our sites.,10,9,NoPushCrew brings a valuable and tangible boost to any online businessWe are using PushCrew for both player acquisition as well as for retention / re-activation, where it gives an extra channel to communicate directly with players, who want to hear from us. The system offers all the features that we require in order to communicate effectively, such as message personalisation and customisation as well as good visual tools to increase conversions.,Strong personalisation options through both the interface + directly through the API. Automated segmentation based on website triggers (cookies, events) or other subscriber values. Good visual tools to further tailor the messages to each subscriber. Very good and direct support, both technical and commercial.,It would be great to include iPhones in the push channel, but this depends on Apple allowing it. The push notification previews are not always accurate when compared to what is actually delivered on devices, so pre-send testing is necessary.,9,After our initial test period, we have seen good ROI on our purchase of PushCrew through increased player activity. PushCrew has also shown very effective in re-activating "dormant" players.,10,8,NoGreat software but costs add up quicklyPushCrew used on the website for marketing purposes.,Simple to use interface that is very intuitive and easy to set-up your campaigns. Helpful support staff with a fast response rate.,The product has some great features but they add to the monthly cost significantly if you want to do anything worthwhile and have a decent amount of subscribers. Clearing out inactive subscribers would be beneficial as the costs is based on subscribers rather than participants in a particular campaign. More features in the entry level package.,2,Unfortunately a negative return on investment.,8,4,NoA great way to push content to your visitors and fans!We use PushCrew to promote our blog content. It is used solely by the digital team. It is really useful to boost our organic traffic, making more economical sense for our the investment in content.,Sent notification: For all content push, this is a great way to keep the brand on the forefront of visitors mind. Content Marketing: Blog production is expensive. PushCrew allows to leverage our spend and add to our ROI. Customer relationship: This is a good way to establish a deeper connection with potential and existing customer by creating a welcome drip and connect multiple touch points.,Templates: Lots of campaigns could be made as templates to accelerate implementation. Rollout time: Past easy sign-up, it does take time to put everything together and master the tool. It is not "that easy." Marketing campaigns: Pushing promotional content is with Enterprise version. A basic version would be nice. Analytics: Analytics on content would be good (top pages...),9,It is still a small piece of our acquisition. 50 leads/month, compare to 700+ for sign-ups.,8,8,NoExcellent Tool To Get My Content In Front Of My ReadersIt is being used by the whole organization. It allows us to provided valuable content to our readers and subscribers.,It is easy to setup and send push notifications. It helps get our content in front of our visitors that may not see our newsletters.,I actually don't have any issues with the use of PushCrew at this time. I am happy with it.,10,It has had a positive impact. It pays for itself each month with just 1 sent push notification.,10,10,NoGreat push notifications platform for mid range technical abilityWe use it to engage with visitors on our sites periodically with jobs that match their location and keywords specified. We send a few jobs per day so they can pick ones they want to apply to. It is only used in this sense, and mainly by just myself. It's kind of set up as a set it and forget it thing now.,PushCrew does well with providing simple instructions to drop code into the site. PushCrew helped quickly resolve issues with some settings that weren't exposed to my login.,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.,8,We have a very high margin on the business that is run through PushCrew, mainly because our users stick around for a long time and engage with our paid services through the alerts. Very good ROI,7,9,NoGood platform for push notificationsVery good system, user friendly and support a lot of browsers and devices for maximum reach. For me is one of the best channels to communicate with customers, right after emails because they are more organic and not intrusive in general.,User friendly. The interface is very clear in general and setup everything just need couple of minutes. Easy to implement in any site. The code just need to be pasted in the with anything else. No coding needed. For peoples not very into programming this is the best, very intuitive.,Apple devices need more work. In general any integration with Apple is really difficult, but even then PushCrew support Safari. Real time statistics. Usually every camping is delayed 24hr, which for some people can be a problem. More customization. In general everything admit modifications, but would be great to have a in-app editor for photos, etc.,8,More return. In general the people who sign like the notifications and usually return.
