The Easiest Way To Get Cross-Platform Website Push Notifications

Back in 2013, Apple released OS X 10.9 Mavericks and one of the new features was a new way for website owners to keep users engaged: push notifications.  Safari Push Notifications work just like push notifications for apps. They display your website icon and notification text, which users can click to go right to your website.

That’s great but in order to get this feature to work with you need a website under HTTPS protocol, Apple Developer Account, register a website Push ID, generate a certificate etc. For the average website owner, that’s a pain the the ass.

So not only do you have to pay for the Apple Dev Account, but you will also have to pay someone to code, implement and possibly maintain Push Notifications for you.

What if I was to tell you that you can get Push Notifications not just for Safari, but for Chrome, Firefox and Android too, you can set it up in a matter of minutes and it will cost you less than you’d pay for an Apple Developer account. Would that be something you might be interested in?

Enter PushMonkey

No, it’s not developed by FSM. But we are using it and we love it. The idea is simple, you sign up for PushMonkey, install it on your website and you’re good to go. If you’re running WordPress you’ll only have to install their plugin. If you’re not running WordPress, all you have to do is copy-paste a piece of code in your website regardless of your back-end platform.

Once installed, people will be able to subscribe to your website and every time you publish new content they receive a notification. You can also send custom notifications without posting new content to your website from your WordPress backend or from your PM dashboard.

You can :

  • Easily decide and control for what type of content to send out notifications. Filter by custom post type and by category for standard posts.
  • Brand your notifications
  • View statistics
  • Schedule Push Notifications

Best part is that there is no coding required. So what’s the catch? There is no catch! It costs as low as $2.99 / month and they even offer a free trail.
