What is Push Notification Advertising and How to get started.
Advertising on the internet, as we know it, is optimized for one thing i.e Attention. This is further extended to action after attention (Click Through Rate). Advertising dollars on good ol’ web are spent across 5 different mediums, each of which represents a unique format.
Web push notifications were first introduced in Apr 2015 by Chrome. Simply put, push notification advertising is nothing but delivering a specific format of an ad using a web push notification. These ads are delivered directly to the device of the user and hence don’t necessarily compete to occupy space on the publisher’s website.
Push Notification ads, given their snappy nature, also enjoy extremely high viewability and CTRs. CTRs for push notification ads vary from 0.5% to as high as 3%.
Push Notification ads, unlike all other ad formats, command a lion’s share of the user’s attention - which directly makes this media inventory extremely visible. At the same time, ads delivered on push notification do not compete with banner ads or blog posts for attention.
Push ads are delivering astonishing CTRs to the advertisers, hence, gives publishers a strong motive to vouch for the ad format.
From the 45B+ notifications we’ve sent, we saw that the:
*(most websites receive 35% churn in their first month and 20% (average) in the subsequent months)
Let’s have a brief scenario where we look at how push ads yield the revenue for a publisher receiving 100K Unique Monthly Visitors:

So your push notification audience in 6 months (with 4% audience acquisition and 20% churn) would grow to 15,236 subscribers.
Now, if the publisher pushes 2 notifications every day:
**(is 5% but decreases by 10% for initial few months and settles at 2%(average) for the subsequent months)
Your total website traffic will become 118,283 (increased by 18%)
Additionally, if 2 push notification ads are sent:
Revenue generated from 2 notifications ads will be =18,283*10 cents = $1,828 in the First month
