“Start segmentation – it is very critical for success. Users are already receiving emails and notifications. If you want to create a brand and want the user to be happy, segmentation is the key.”

The Marketing Challenge

ShoutMeLoud is a prominent blog with 1.1 Million visits every month. It was founded by Harsh Agrawal, who’s an author and international speaker. ShoutMeLoud has won the best blog award in more than 1 category in the year 2017. It has also been featured on top websites like INC, Entrepreneur, Yourstory, and more.

They generated around $40,055 every month from the blog. To keep growing, they need to focus on generating traffic and engagement. Their major marketing problems were:

  • Engagement: To generate revenue, they need to keep users engaged. ShoutMeLoud focuses on multiple categories and its articles need to reach to the interested audience for better engagement.
  • Reaching out to subscribers: ShoutMeLoud is an affiliate partner to many toptier brands such as SEMrush, Google for Work, and more. They need to promote their products on their website by reaching out to a relevant audience on time.
  • Repeat Traffic: People come to the website from various sources like paid marketing, affiliate marketing, organic marketing. However, to improve monetization, ShoutMeLoud needed to increase repeat traffic as well.

That’s where PushEngage came into the picture.

How PushEngage Helped ShoutMeLoud

PushEngage has many push notification features that help e-commerce businesses achieve their target revenue.

ShoutMeLoud is primarily an affiliate blog. But they also have their own courses and ebooks. When they started using drip push notifications, the blog saw a definite increase in traffic, engagement, and sales.

Increasing Subscribers

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

Generating Repeat Sales

ShoutMeLoud started creating push notification segments for the blog’s audience based on the kind of content they were browsing. Before segmenting their audience, the blog got a 1% CTR on its push notifications. But segmentation led to more personalized and targeted push notifications.

At the same time, it helped them create multiple automated push notification sequences because they were segmenting based on interests.

For instance, site visitors interested in knowing more about Adsense will be segmented and sent an “Adsense Drip Campaign”. Similarly, subscribers interested in WordPress would be sent the “WordPress Drip” instead.

Showing the relevant articles to subscribers helped ShoutMeLoud create brand value over time. Segmentation improved the click-through rate to 4-5%. For the drip campaigns, the CTR went up to 5.3%.

Increased Repeat Traffic

With PushEngage, ShoutMeLoud was able to get more than 200K subscribers in no time. This has helped ShoutMeLoud to increase repeat traffic which resulted in increased revenue.

Of course, not all their push notifications sent traffic directly back to the site. In some cases, the push notifications helped build subscribers across other platforms as well.
