How Web #PushNotifications are Helping Entertainment Industry
Challenges around effective user engagement for the publishers of entertainment industry
- E-mail as an user engagement tool is not much effective as most of the e-mails gets flagged as spam.
- Building an app is not only an expensive affair, but also doesn’t justify the ROI. Moreover,with so many apps being launched everyday, the user is left confused and hence tends to abandon apps after the first usage
- Delayed messages -Apart from the character limitation, there are chances of a SMS getting delayed, hence making it completely irrelevant. Timing is something entertainment and news industry can not afford to go wrong with. You absolutely can’t afford a breaking news to get delayed. Can you?
- Communication barrier- Not all communication channels provide multi-language support, making it difficult for the user to relate to the message.
