So, you want to learn how to use push notifications to boost your affiliate marketing revenue? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Push notifications can do gangbuster business with affiliate marketing and I’m speaking from experience.

Just think about it, people are attached to their phones. Every time your phone buzzes, you’ll at least check it to see what’s going on. Right? That means that every time you have a great new offer for your visitors, they are guaranteed to get the message.

But even though push notification can be great for increasing traffic and getting higher conversion rates, just like anything else they are a set of best practices that are most likely to lead to the best results.

That’s why I wanted to put together this blog post. I’m about to give you my top tips and tricks that helped me optimize my affiliate campaigns with push notifications.

So, let’s get started.

MegaPush Push Notification Ad Network


First off, I use MegaPush (megapu.sh). And while they often market themselves as the first big push notification advertising network, they are definitely not the last. There are many networks these days that specialize in push notifications. But I use MegaPush because, in my experience, they’ve been a consistent source of very cheap traffic. And cheap traffic can be a goldmine for any affiliate who knows how to convert.

So, if you’re new to the game (or old to the game and looking for a new angle) MegaPush gets my personal recommendation. After you’ve landed on a push network to use, it’s important to go about making your pushes as effective as possible.

That means no spam!

People love helpful push notifications but hate unhelpful ones. If you’re going to vibrate someone's pocket with your new promotion, you better make it count. Many push networks come with targeting options to help you with this.

For example, I know that MegaPush comes with features that let you target specific feeds, ISPs, and specific IP ranges to name only a few. This way you can zero in on the demo that is most likely to convert.

You’ll also need to make sure that you are varying your messaging for a lot of the same reasons.

Maybe a couple of your users’ ears perked up the first time you sent them that "10% off Discount Code" push, but now (after 6 more pushes) they’ve got the message and they’re already Googling how to turn off all their web browser push notifications.

Mix it up and stay interesting.

Push Notifications to Landing Page


But my best piece of advice for affiliates looking to use push notifications is to use them as a great way to organically grow your contact list. Always send push notifications that link to your landing page, and always install push technology on your landing page.

Let’s say you have a new promotion that you want as many people to see as possible. Drive them to your landing page, and you now have a new crowd of people to “push” the next time you have something to say.

Or, send them a push and get them onto your landing page. The next thing you know, you’ll have hordes of free earned traffic clicking through your landing page.

Your overall contact list will grow exponentially promoting one new offer at a time. That’s the real beauty of push notifications.
