With the world moving around the web, and the dynamics of marketing changing every hour, it is essential now to keep the website customer-ready. Push notifications are one way to keep your audience tied to your website, even when they are not visiting your website. You can send Push notifications to both desktop and mobile from the WordPress site.

But, first of all, let’s see what WordPress Push notifications are. All clickable messages that you receive in the notification area of your mobile device or the messages that you see on the desktop of your computer are WordPress Push Notifications.

These messages on the desktop can be seen even when the browser is not open, and these push notifications work well even on mobile phones. This helps the users to know the latest updates on the website and also know about the latest offers.

To turn visitors into customers and loyal clients, WordPress Push notifications are a must. All this is possible only if the viewers accept the notifications. Only then the website can “Push” notifications to the viewer’s browser or device (computer, phone, etc.) for site updates, special offers products, new articles, and more.
