Creative Best Practices

Short. Creative. Meaningful.

Overtake your competitors and increase users sign-ups with ads involving the use of a minimum of words and simple yet catchy graphics.

Forget storytelling approach, make a sense of urgency combined with juicy details. Add emojis, stickers, splashes or buttons to your images.

Do not use cluttered images for push ads. Literally it doesn’t make any sense here. Try using images with big, bright object with minimum items on the background.

Make your push notification seem useful

Use catchy phrasing and intrigue your audience

Make it short

Speak in first person

Use time frames and countdowns, make your audience hurry up!

Make your user feel involved in something only insiders know about

Use reminders

Make it intimate

Make your audience want to “join the club”

Express joy!
