In the Appgain vs Adjust blog, we talked about User acquisition, but what after acquisition? What about Engagement and Retention? Well, in this blog we’re going to talk about what Does Appgain offer you to help you acquire more users, and engage them and compare it to what NotifyVisitors Offer! Let’s get started!
Overwhelming never get the job done
When you’re looking to keep your customer engaged with your platform, you must’ve thought about notifications, SMS, Email, In-App notifications, as your primary channels right?
But you don’t send all of those at one time, right? No, you don’t.
You plan carefully and hit your users with the right sequence of tools, and the best thing that you could happen is to have the tools of acquiring, engage and retain all in one place.
All that while not a bad thing, but when you’re dealing with like 6 tools is much more different than dealing with a 60 tools right?
Jack of all trades master of none
When you’re looking for a person that gets the job done for you, do you go with a generalist that does anything and everything but never specializes in any, or do you get someone whose area of expertise is the job you got for him?
It’s a pretty obvious answer, you would be wasting your time and money to go with a generalist, simply because they know the tricks that a specialized one knows!
That’s why we believe that offering an important set of tools is important for your business!
Now we come to the important part, I had an incident where I was charged more for something I didn’t know it was available for me when I asked I was told “no one told you not to use it, everyone knows that”
I was mad because it’s not clear what I get charged for, what I could use and what I couldn’t use, that how I always feel when people do not show their pricing.
And even if you searched the internet you’ll find that no one talks about the pricing, and not being clear at what you sell is not a strong point.
Now let’s talk about why would you choose Appgain?
At Appgain.io we offer Notifications, Deep linking, and many other tools for getting the app discovered, automating user engagement and personalized their onboarding, etc.
without overwhelming you with much of thing you don’t need, we give you what you need and you pay for it, and you could always check the pricing on our website, simple, right?
let’s put all of our comparison in the form of a table so it’s easier for you to read?
