Another way to increase your click-through rates on Black Friday? Display your company icon in an attractive sales image inside your Push Notification. If a subscriber sees something they’re familiar with, they’ll be much more likely to click on your call-to-action button.

3. Refine your subject lines.

If you want to beat the heavy Black Friday competition, you have to make sure that your subject line is attractive. To create a striking subject line, you should try one or more of these tactics:

  • Describe your (products) discount or sale in your subject line.
  • Create an urgency of time people have to claim your deal.
  • Be funny and creative.

  • Definitely make use of emojis.

However, everyone likes sales, but nobody likes spam. So make sure you don't spam your customers. A good way to deal with the amount of Push Notifications is to make use of segmentation, so you can send targeted notifications to specific audiences of interest.
