OneSignal Customer Data Shows Push Notifications Drive Significant Customer Engagement and Retention
Customers Report Greater Improvement in ROI over Email
OneSignal, the market leader in customer engagement messaging, announced a survey of companies who actively use web and mobile push notifications shows Push Notifications have equal or greater return on investment than email marketing or digital advertising.
In surveying over 300 customers1 with audience sizes exceeding 30,000, 82% reported that push notifications helped them meet or exceed their business goals. When comparing push notifications against email, 72% of respondents said Push Notifications had a greater or same return on investment as email with 44% overall saying it was a greater return on investment.
Keeping users engaged with your app or service is a critical business goal. Analyzing more than 33,0002 active websites & mobile apps over a 30 day period, sending a push notification drove up daily active users by 9.3% on Web and 35% for mobile applications.
This finding was consistent across regions and industries, and further establishes that many companies are missing a golden opportunity to engage with their customers via modern engagement channels.
“Companies are missing out on a crucial customer retention & engagement strategy if not leveraging Push Notifications,” said Josh Wetzel, Chief Revenue Officer, OneSignal. “Users state overwhelmingly that Push Notifications not only meet their business needs, but ROI is better than or equal to other channels – as good or better than Email & Ads, and the qualitative look at more than 30k mobile apps & websites show they are essential to driving daily active usage.”
