Push Marketing: Optimize Your Abandoned Cart Recovery

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You are running an e-commerce business, but over two-thirds of your potential customers are failing to complete their purchase, no matter the kind of offers you have. In this post, we’re talking about optimizing your abandoned cart recovery.

There’s nothing more gutting than seeing a potential order slip through the cracks into the frustrating world of shopping cart abandonment.

You might have tried your hand at using emails in hopes of improving your cart recovery. But emails are a congested channel since every business in the world does email marketing. So it’s a good idea to explore other mediums of communication.

Enter push notifications. Want to automate your abandoned cart recovery with minimal effort? Then look no further. Here are a few brilliant examples of push notifications for maximizing your chances of earning back potentially lost revenue.

Creating Suspense
