Push notifications are now available within the Kochava dashboard as the first feature in the new Engagement suite of tools. Now, you can send contextually relevant push messages directly from Kochava, based on the rich analytics data you get from your app, all without having to download and reformat spreadsheets for use in a separate tool with disparate metrics.

Push notifications give marketers the ability to further engage users and attribute their owned media efforts. It has the advantage of a direct, app-related message to a qualified audience of users who have the app installed and have opted to receive push messages. With Engagement push notifications, marketers have the ability to send automated push campaigns based on user behavior. It is the first platform to connect attribution and measurement with automation.

Fight brand overload and churn

Push messaging must be used strategically, with contextually relevant content and delivered with the right frequency. Given the parsed attention of the average user today, too much irrelevant content or poorly targeted push campaigns can result in users opting out of push messages from your app or worse, deleting your app entirely.

Engagement push notifications by Kochava makes it simple for app marketers to find the ideal audience timing, frequency, and messaging to maximize engagement and ultimately the lifetime value of your users by providing the right features to reach your users through contextual push messages based on in-app, behavior-driven triggers.


How Engagement Works


Engagement enables marketers to segment and define audiences by language, geo, device type and operating system. They can add the type of in-app behavior they like. For example, one streaming company targets users who have completed three free video views but whose subscription to the service has lapsed.

Marketers can leverage this audience data to create dynamic, contextual messaging; use A/B testing to determine which messaging is most effective; anticipate and automatically react to leading indicators of churn; and visualize lift from these campaigns directly within the Analytics dashboard. Engagement also enables attribution of owned media, so marketers know whether a purchase came from their own push notification campaign or from a paid media source.
