Each push ads notification ads, whether it renders on mobile or desktop is made of 4 items which are, Title, Description text, Icon image, and a link. It’s important to make sure that each one of these components is optimized for the best performance.

Push Ads Title

A push title usually limited by 30 characters (although some platforms allow less or more), may include emojis, and should succinctly describe your product or service, as per usual our content guidelines indicate what can or can’t be mentioned, but either way, try to make this title as loud as you possibly can. Keep in mind you still can use the description text to paint a clearer picture of your product or service, so use the title to simply call out to the user and hook him into whatever message you’re trying to communicate.

Push Ads Description Text

The very next content line is the description text, as you’d find in other textual ads (contextual ads or native ads) although it allows more characters you will always need to tweak and trim your message to fit the strict 40 characters limit so plan it wisely. Write a short description text to introduce your product to your potential user, describe the advantages of your product, and urge the user to act with a strong CTA. Emojis always stand out so make sure to add a relevant emoji to your text to make it more noticeable.

Push Banner

One of the great things about push notification ads is not only that their informative and very engaging, it’s that they use so many features of the traditional advertising methods we know to further increase engagements. One of the brilliant additions is being able to add a 360px X 240px image that hovers above the push ads notification ads and is fully clickable. On non-MAC desktops, a banner will be located above the push ads notification message and attached to it, this will further the engagement by the user making your ad impossible to miss. We support both mobile and desktop, so make sure to upload all the necessary sizes for maximum engagement and user reach.
