You can use web push notifications to create welcome series for the new users that sign up to your application. Let’s see how to create a welcome series using Pushpad.
- Users sign up normally to your application
- When users are logged in on your website you subscribe them to push notifications and you keep track of their user ID.
- You use a daily cron job to query your database and find the users that have registered the previous day (or 2 days ago, 3 days ago, etc.)
- You send a welcome notification to all the users that have signed up the previous day (or 2 days ago, 3 days ago, etc.). You can target them using their user IDs (see the libraries for sending the notifications).
Note that Pushpad itself uses this method to send a welcome series to all the new customers. For example at the moment we send a welcome notification to the users that have signed up the previous day, then another notification after 3 days and finally another notification after 6 days.
