Push it, correctly.


Push notifications play a huge role in app user retention and app user engagement. [Note: When implemented CORRECTLY] 😅

On the flip side, there are many apps out there who get their push notification strategy wrong, by simply sending too many notifications and irritating their user, or sending completely irrelevant content to an uninterested user due to a lack of personalisation and segmentation.

However, there are still many apps that do get their push notifications strategy right. So we wanted to provide you with some inspiration by sharing with you a few app marketing strategies that are great examples of different tactics to increase their app user engagement.


  • MyFitnessPal 👈

MyFitnessPal has been clever here by using reverse psychology to grab their users attention. This notification is likely to give users a kick up the bum who haven’t been using the app as much as they initially intended to. And even if the message doesn’t result in the user using the app again straight away, the app won’t be irritating the user every day with notifications, so they are less likely to delete the app, therefore, leaving them open for re-engagement in the future.


  • Google 🙌

Personalised, relevant, timely and valuable. What more could you ask for in a push notification? Google really did hit the nail on the head with this one, taking into account the user’s event, location and current traffic. I can’t see why anyone would want to delete this app or turn off the notifications.


  • TripAdvisor 👍

TripAdvisor uses a good personalisation strategy by taking into account their users’ previous app activity and sending them a valuable notification based on that. Users appreciate a message that is personal just to them. In fact, Leanplum found that personalisation can increase open rates by a whopping 800%.


  • H&M 😍

H&M know what they’re doing. By using personalised recommendations based on the user’s past purchases, it’s like having your own personal stylist right in your pocket. This is a notification I would definitely find hard to resist!
