The Marketing Challenge

Ofertia curates promotional offers and deals from offline stores and publishes them online so that its users can get deals that aren’t available elsewhere. Many of the deals and offers they publish on their site are available for a limited time. So, it was really important for them to update their users in real-time.

Not being able to send real-time updates meant losing repeat customers.

That’s where PushEngage came into the picture.

How PushEngage Helped Ofertia

PushEngage comes with push notification campaigns for publishers. Ofertia is mostly a curation platform where they make money by promoting deals for offline vendors. Instead of a dropshipping model, they use a simple content publishing model.

When Ofertia started using web push notifications, they saw a spike in user acquisition, retention, and revisits in 6 months. The best part was that they had no previous experience with web push.

Increasing Subscribers

The first step was to rack up push notification subscribers for Ofertia. PushEngage offers a variety of subscription opt-in types and the one that they chose was a single-step optin.
