Watch my Push Connect Notify review video below, then read my comments and check out the bonuses.
As I mentioned below, I believe this tool should be part of the tools infrastructure of any serious internet marketer.
Push Connect Notify (PCN) was developed by Jimmy Kim, the developer of Sendland, an autoresponder tool which he built because he was dissatisfied with the tools currently on the market.
Jimmy has a substantial IM business, and when a launches a product, it is because he needs to use it himself in his business. This is in contrast to developers whose business is primarily developing products to launch on JV Zoo.
What this means is that, his products are
a) Tailored to the specific needs of internet marketers
b) Likely to be around for many years
c) Likely to be enhanced over time and
d) Fully supported
The product is a web-based service that allows you to create and operate push-notifications to visitors to your website.
Although there are other tools that provide a similar service, Jimmy’s tool has some unique features that make it an obvious choice for marketers.
As well having unique features, there are no limitation in usage of PCN. Specifically, this means
…. all for a single, low, once-off fee of $39 (for the launch period at least).
Access to Push Connect Notify is via a website.
You create campaigns associated with websites, and they are operated by adding a single piece of code to each page for which you want to trigger the campaign.
There is a WordPress plugin and a Shopify extension provided to make it easy to integrate those sites with PCN. Other sites require the code to be added manually.
A campaign causes a popup to appear on the site inviting the visitor to subscribe to “notifications”. If they agree, they are added to a “notification list”.
One of the unique features of Push Connect Notify is that, optionally, you can request a visitor to enter their email address, so you can ALSO add them to an autoresponder list.
Once someone is on a notification list, you can send them messages which appear as popups on their desktop or mobile device (depending on where they signed up). When a user clicks on a popup, they get redirected to a page of your choice.
Sending a push notification message is analogous to sending a broadcast to an email list.
Keeping the same analogy, you can also send a series of timed notifications, equivalent to an email follow-up sequence. You can send several on the first day, and then one per day for up to 14 days.
This features is available in the PRO version only.
Bear in mind that the notifications appears on the desktop – so the user’s browser does not need to be open for them to receive the notification.
The first upsell is for the PRO version of Push Connect Notify and costs $97.
The PRO version provides two additional features:
Segmentation of lists can done based on the browser used by the visitor when they signed up for notifications, and whether it was on a mobile or desktop device.
Segmentation can be used to refine who a notification is sent to. For example, you could send one notification to mobile-only devices, and another to desktop only.
Or if you are promoting a Chrome extension, you could send the notification to only Chrome users.
The second upsell is a developers’ licence, and costs $98.
This allows you to add notification to sites that do not belong to you – and by inference, this means you could charge for this services.
A site that already has reasonably traffic could see a substantial improvement in the engagement of it’s visitors – see the Push Connect Notify sales page for some impressive case study statistics. This would be a very valuable service to a site owner, and worth a non-trivial monthly fee.
The work involved in providing such a service would be minimal and probably could be outsourced.
Push notifications are growing in popularity, and still have a novelty element to them. And yet the stats from the case studies provide hard evidence that this is much more than a novelty.
This means that now is the best time to start using this technology in earnest: users are not too surprised by it, and not yet too annoyed by it.
I haven’t performed a detailed review of the notifications marketplace, but from what I understand, Jimmy’s system is unique in many respects, and provides more features and flexibility than other systems I looked at.
And his current pricing in incomparable.
I’m not familiar enough with the underlying technology to know how far this can be enhanced, but there is one limitation that, hopefully, will be removed soon.
Currently, PCN does not operate on iOS. As I understand it, that is because of restrictions within iOS in the way PCN works. Other notification systems DO work on iOS, so this is a limitation to bear in mind.
But Jimmy built Push Connect Notify for use in his own business, as well as to sell as a service, so I would strongly expect enhancements and new features to be added over time, as allowed by the systems it has to integrate with.
