'Push' members back to your forum
First of all, thank you for using APG vNext in the past year as the platform for your community.
In 2014 we released several important enhancements that makes your life as an forum admin easier.
You can now provide native mobile (Tapatalk)
browsing experience, and you can let the forum software fight off spam for you, on autopilot (Akismet).
So, what's coming
to our software in 2015?
Your members will soon be able to turn on push notification
through Tapatalk for things they're interested in.
This new feature will keep them updated in real time
with stuff they're interested in, and as a result you get more return visitors
throughout the day.
Why push notification?
People have become almost blind
to email notifications.They now just hit the delete button without a second thought because these social emails are sitting in their inboxes right next to more important emails
like order receipts or payment reminders.
They have become nothing but low priority
, useless distractions. They just don't bring people back
to your site the way they used to.
As it stands now, when it comes to bringing people back to your site, nothing beats a well-timed, personalized
And very soon you'll have this very solution in your forum :)
Stay tuned for more updates!
