Let’s dive in.
Step #1: Set Up Your PushEngage Account
Head over to the PushEngage home page and click the Get Started button:
You can select the free plan to try out PushEngage, or choose a paid plan if you’re serious about growing your business. The paid plans come with more campaign options and the ability to build even bigger subscriber lists.
Once you’ve signed up for your PushEngage account, head over to your PushEngage dashboard and go to Site Settings » Site Details:
You can set your logo, site name, and site URL here. It’s really important to sort this stuff out right now so that you can test your entire setup later.
Step #2: Get the Installation Code from PushEngage
To install push notifications, you’ll need to get an installation code. In your Site Settings screen, scroll down and click on the Click Here For Setup Instruction button:
Then, click on the Any Site tab:
Step #3: Place the Installation Code in Your Blogger Blog
Log in to your Blogger Dashboard and click on Theme:
And click on Customize » Edit HTML:

Step #5: Create a Welcome Notification
Once you’re done setting up the opt-in, your site can collect subscribers.
But how do you know if your push notifications are working properly?
We recommend that you create a welcome push notification to test if your setup went smoothly. A welcome notification is a push notification you send a new subscriber to confirm their subscription and welcome them on board.
Go to PushEngage dashboard and head over to Campaign » Drip Autoresponders and click on Create New Drip Autoresponder:
Then, name your campaign (we suggest something like Welcome Drip), and under Content, select the option that says, “Send notification immediately after user subscribes“):
At this point, you can click on the arrow next to the notification to edit the content of your notification.
If you have a Premium or Enterprise plan with PushEngage, you’ll be able to add more than one notification to create a sequence of automated welcome messages. Just click on Add New Notification and edit the content.
Once you’re done, click on Drip Settings and select the option to send your welcome campaign to all subscribers:
Then, scroll down to set your own UTM parameters to track the push notifications:
And when you’re done, scroll back up and click the Activate Autoresponder button:
And you’re done!
You have successfully set up Blogger push notifications on your blog. It’s time to head back to your PushEngage dashboard and start creating your push notification campaigns.
