One of the most popular questions we are constantly getting is “what type of ads work on your push notification traffic?”.
Thus, we have accumulated countless examples for campaign verticals that from our experience have shown the best and stable performance.
Presented here is our summary of the top-performing ads on push notifications.
Sweepstakes has always been a very popular and very "Newbie-Friendly" vertical to start with. This vertical has been showing steady and stable performance. There are two types of Sweepstakes offer:
Credit Card Submit - Very much like the streaming and Video-On-Demand offers we have all been accustomed to.
This conversion flow type would require the user to put his credit card details and in general, might be a bit harder to convert but much more rewarding.
SOI/DOI - The second type of sweepstakes and and the most common method. This conversion flow type would only require the user to put his contact details (SOI) or put his details and confirm via mail (DOI).
*Most Sweepstakes offers would take the user through a conversion flow journey that starts with an initial prelander that goes prior to the actual offer page.
*The most popular type of Sweepstakes is “Win An iPhone”, which offers you to get into a raffle about a brand new smartphone. Could work just as good with “Galaxy” or any other brand.
*Another very popular variant of the Sweepstakes vertical is the opportunity to win a gift card to a major store brand such as Walmart, Amazon and similar brands.
