What Are Push Notifications?
Push notifications are a great way to re-engage website visitors without having to rely on email. They're pretty common on mobile devices and people are used to them. They've been used by the big websites like Facebook, Amazon and eBay for a while now and the technology is available to anyone with a website.
Subscribers simply have to click on an "Allow" button for you to begin sending notifications.
Advantages of Push Notifications
They don't get caught in email spam filters, or buried in an overcrowded inbox.
Click-through rates can be twice as high as email.
They can also be used to drive actions including but not limited to:
- Promoting products or affiliate offers
- Improving customer experience
- Notifying customers of specials and discounts
Why Use Turbo Push Notifications?
Turbo Push Notifications is a script based program which, for a small one-time investment (no monthly fees to pay) you can instal on an unlimited number of websites, your own and your clients.
You can send an unlimited number of Push Notifications to an unlimited number of Subscribers from your own domain, so there's no advertising a third party's services.
The basic version of Turbo Push Notifications works on both Chrome and Firefox, but you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro Version if you want it to work on Android devices, and be able to schedule Notifications.
You can sell this service to your clients for whatever price you feel is suitable and keep 100% of the profits.
How Easy Is It To Instal?
There are comprehensive instructions included when you invest in Turbo Push Notifications, which I was able to follow without a hitch.
Your domain does need to have an SSL Certificate (required by Google), but you can get one as cheap as $9 a year from Namecheap, and you should also have a dedicated IP address (talk to your host about this).
I was able to get up and running with the service on a brand new domain in about half an hour, including installing the SSL Certificate, the script itself and testing.
Turbo Push Notifications is a fantastic stand-alone service that you're in total control of. You don't have to rely on any third party tools, and the tiny monetary investment, and small investment of time makes it ideal for local business owners who want to build a list of prospects and customers without the need to rely on email or have a paid Auto-responder service.
It's the perfect add-on service for Offline Consultants to use themselves and to offer to their clients.
