New Ready-to-use Push Templates
With over 1 million developers and marketers sending 8 billion messages daily, we get a lot of data to draw insights from. We’ve analyzed how companies successfully use OneSignal for push and now offer professionally-designed templates to help you get up and running. These templates cover common use cases and will save you time and resources, so you can engage with your users and drive results faster.
OneSignal’s pre-designed web and mobile push templates are now live and available for use. For best results, we recommend customizing the template with your own branding and personalizing the messaging to be relevant for your business in order to achieve higher engagement with your audience.
