For ClutchPoints CEO and Founder Nish Patel, traditional methods of following sports felt ineffective. He created ClutchPoints to give fans an easy way to stay on top of their favorite teams and players. Now with a popular mobile application and website, ClutchPoints has become a trusted source for news on sports for people nationwide.
Push notifications are central to ClutchPoint’s success. For three years, the sports media company has trusted OneSignal to drive users back into the app. They first looked at OneSignal because it was (and still is) the most widely used push notification provider. Also, OneSignal was incredibly easy for them to integrate which had them communicating with their users through the platform in a flash.
OneSignal has made it possible for us to create our own direct source of traffic. It's a great way to reach people in the moment of a trending event.
Reaching People in the Moment
ClutchPoints saw that OneSignal made it easy to build out its own way of directly engaging users without the complexities of different platforms. Reviews on websites like G2 Crowd and WordPress told Patel that OneSignal was very reliable, the setup was simple, and their customer support was top notch. When using OneSignal’s platform, ClutchPoints discovered that features like Intelligent Delivery were valuable tools that helped with their marketing efforts.
“We use push notifications to alert people of breaking news. It’s a great way to reach people in the moment of a trending event” said Nish Patel, CEO, and Founder of ClutchPoints.
