Using Push notifications via your Roam Local profile presents a great way to build a community and communicate what you do, and when you’re doing it!

Push notifications are clickable pop-up messages that appear on your users’ browsers irrespective of the device they’re using or the browser they’re on. They serve as a quick communication channel enabling companies to convey messages, offers, or other information to their customers. 

That’s where push notifications come in…

According to a study by Localytics, 52% of smartphone users have push enabled on their devices, and these notifications can be used to benefit businesses in the following ways:

  • Welcome new opted-in profile followers
  • Service or product of the week announcement: “Check out our happy hour cocktail menu that’s available 3pm – 5pm!”
  • Say thank you (and provide another offer): Thank you for…[purchasing, sharing, rating] — here’s…[20% off your next order, a coupon, etc.]
  • Alert your profile followers of any special offers, news, events, deals or discounts available
  • Provide Instant venue updates, during quiet or peak times
  • Create a sense of urgency to drive traffic to your app profile with a flash sale, or limited time offer. Let your app users know this is happening with a push notification.
  • Use push notifications to notify your profile followers and drive engagement to your website
  • Let your customers know when you have new lines or products going live. The exclusivity of checking out something new is bound to drive profile views ‍
  • Sometimes, your customers may just need a little nudge. If you’ve not had a visit from a profile follower for a while, you can look at sending a push notification with a reminder and offer or event code to entice them back. ‍
  • The weather, especially here in the UK, is extremely unpredictable. The crazy weather we have is always a hot topic so take full advantage of big weather events to boost sales of seasonal products and drive that engagement via your push notifications.
