💡 Solution

Web push is a great solution to build relationships with an audience, especially when it is done properly. In order to achieve its goal, Vecernji.hr uses primarily mass campaigns. The sending strategy that the portal follows allows for reaching great results:

  • web push campaigns are sent regularly - daily, as it is a news portal ➡️ as a result the portal keeps constant contact with its subscribers;
  • there is a limitation to 4-6 campaigns sent per day ➡️ subscribers receive only the most important and most interesting news of the day;
  • every campaign has its validity period (up to 3 hours), and a new campaign is sent only after the previous expires ➡️ subscribers that had their devices off for some time, do not receive all the notifications with news that might be already outdated when they return online, instead they get only fresh information;
  • campaigns with local news are targeted to subscribers that live in the region ➡️ subscribers receive relevant information.
