8 Push Notification Messages you Should be Sending to Your Fans

Recently we had a webinar on push notification and beacon best practices. In the video we discuss the how, what, and why of sending push notifications. The end result is these 8 recommendations that you should try today.

1. Welcome Fans on Game Day

Depending on the sport, your fans may arrive hours before the game. Let them know you appreciate them showing up by sending a push notification. The best way to do this is to add beacons to parking lot entrances and tailgate areas. Setup a scheduled beacon trigger (So the message is only sent pre-game) to go off. This way as soon as the fan drives into the parking lot they get greeted!

Bonus points if you sell a sponsor on being included in the message and include extra points for tailgating.

Welcome to tailgate country… see you at the game later. Remember, an ice cold Miller Light makes every tailgate better!
