How To Implement Behavioural Automation In Web Push Notifications


Consumers despise push notifications that are generic in nature or completely irrelevant to them. If they receive an email addressed to 99 other people, they will hit the “unsubscribe” button immediately or eventually and move away from any communication coming from that brand.

According to Social Times, 36% of marketers feel personalization is a big challenge. Of course – it is! Today’s consumers are spoiled for choice. There are many brands in the market that share a similar value proposition which is why it is harder to engage the consumers.

But 60% of online consumers expect businesses to approach them with a value proposition applicable to them. One of the most effective marketing tactics used today is push. The CTR of push is as high as 40% which means the probability of clicking a push message is more than that an email. B2B and B2C industries majorly  include push in their business strategies.

But same is the story with push – no one likes to receive generic messages. They are annoying and irrelevant. Lack of behavioral targeting coupled with a low acceptance rate of the subscribers has made push a vulnerable medium. This is where smart segmentation steps in.

A survey by Adobe and eConsultancy states 52% of marketers consider personalized content to be a fundamental element of their online strategy. 59% of entrepreneurs reported they experienced a high ROI after personalizing their eCommerce stores.

Combine personalization and behavioral automation, and you have magic in your hands. Unfortunately, only a handful of marketers have tapped the actual potential of this mix. With segmentation, it is possible to engage different clusters of the target audience with the right content.

How does smart segmentation work?

Segmentation enables you to target different segments of your website visitors with different content based on their behavioural analysis by using already-existing data points such as demographics, keywords, purchase patterns, browsing history and ads. This helps them to determine the content that is most apt for that particular segment.


Smart segmentation makes use of behavioural targeting

To segment the consumers on the basis of their activities – both current and historical – across digital media, marketers must identify behavioural signals. According to Smart Insights, if we can fully analyze behavioural patterns it is easier to design effective marketing campaigns.

One of the features of Wigzo is its machine learning technology that allows it to track website visitors. The elements tracked are demographics, previous interactions with the brand, past purchases and conversion triggers among other things.

Once holistic user personas are created, they are targeted using custom campaigns. With machine learning, you will be always updated on what the users are looking at, what they want and how you can use the data to convert them for your business. This makes behavioural automation possible.
