Utilizing the Action Button

Action buttons allow you to link up to two additional landing pages and encourage more engagement with your web push campaigns.

Action buttons are a great way to customize your push notifications and also enable subscribers to take multiple actions from a single push. You can utilize these action buttons to advertise new products, that you’ve published a new blog post, or to encourage signing up for an event such as a demo or webinar. And that’s just to give you a few ideas!

You can add up to two action buttons to your manual, triggered, welcome, RSS, or API notifications and you can link these action buttons to anything you like. Currently, action buttons are only available on Chrome (desktop and Android).

Adding Action Buttons

Add your action buttons on the ‘Content’ screen when creating a campaign. You can add one or two action buttons.

Once you hit the '+ Add Action Button' you are able to input your text and the URL for the button. Our action buttons also support emojis if you wish to add them.

That’s it! Your action buttons will display along with your push notification when the push is sent.

Viewing Results:

In addition to overall notification clicks, you can also track how many clicks your action buttons receive as well. When viewing campaign results you will see ‘Button #1 Clicks’ and ‘Button #2 Clicks.’

This is a great way to check-in with the effectiveness of your action buttons. If one isn’t performing well, consider changing up your copy and seeing what impact it has on your click-through rate.
