Introduction To Web Push Notifications
Web Push Notifications are basically messages that come from a website. Once a user subscribes to your Web Push Subscriptions (through prompts displayed on our website), you can push out messages through their web browser, thus converting the user into a lead.
Setting Up A Web Push Subscription Prompt
Go to Settings on the top right corner, click on the WebPush Subscription Prompt tab. Make sure the Status is set to ON. Depending on whether you own a domain, and where you want to host your Web Push Prompt, Set Self-Hosted to ON or OFF. Follow the instructions given right below the button to link it with your website.
Set after how much time you want to show the Subscription Prompt, and the appropriate option for when you want to Show WebPush Subscription again.
Adding Web Push Notifications to your website
Types of Web Push Prompts
SendX offers two options to setup your Web Push Prompts:
Native prompts are messages that are pushed on your website natively using your domain and sub domains. The viewer can click on your CTA natively, and will be subscribed to your notification list immediately. Note that you need to have an https domain to be able to run prompts natively. You cannot create a Native prompt when creating a Non Self Hosted Prompt.
Custom prompts are messages that are pushed on your website using SendX subdomains. The viewers will click on your CTA, then taken to a separate popup where they can subscribe to your notification list. You need not have an https domain of your own, as all SendX domains (that host your web push prompts) are https domains.
You can use Custom prompts if you want to host customized messages, and modify the web push prompts (like adding images, specific messages, etc.)
Click Save WebPush Settings when you're satisfied with your Web Push Prompt, to update it on your website.
Congratulations! Now you're well on your way to sending push notifications to your subscribers.
