Headlines play an important role in push notifications: mobile and desktop users primarily see headlines and descriptions. An attractive headline directly affects the CTR of the notifications as well as the campaign conversion rate.
Push notification advertising network RichPush has prepared a guide on converting headlines for gambling.
General tips for webmasters
- If you want to get maximum results from push notifications, choose a headline that goes well together with the banner.
- Do not mislead the user just for the sake of clicks on the promotion, use honest headlines.
- Test 10 or more headlines for each promotion and country. Do not draw hasty conclusions about the quality of the traffic, think about how you can hook users with your promotion.
- Make sure that the content on the landing page is relevant to what you are advertising in the push notifications.
We recall that the length of a push notification headline is 30 characters. The description must be no longer than 45 characters. The image size for push notifications is 492 × 328.
Push notifications are displayed differently in different operating systems and browsers, and we recommend taking this into account when creating promotions.
