Best Practices for Targeting Push Notification Traffic

Advertisers who want to target push notifications exclusively should create separate boosts optimized for this traffic. As these placement vary from traditional widgets, we have created best practices for boosts targeting this traffic to ensure maximum engagement and optimal performance.

  • Create Short, Concise Headlines (40 Characters MAX)
    While the system allows you to input up to 80 characters, headlines for push notification traffic are limited to only 40 characters -- longer headlines will be cut off.
  • Upload Content with a 1:1 Image Ratio
    While we generally recommend uploading content at a 4:3 image ratio, 1:1 is preferred for push notification traffic.
  • Images should be as simple as possible. Hint: Logos work great!
    Creatives for push notification traffic are smaller than those served on standard widgets. Images that are too busy will be hard to distinguish when served at a reduced size.
  • Add (PUSH) to the beginning of your boost name.

Push Notification Traffic Boost Set Up

  • Set a Starting Budget
    We recommend a minimum starting budget of $500.
