Growth Hack #3 – Send Push Notifications in the Evening for Maximum Impact:

Leanplum, a mobile marketing automation tool, broke down 671 million pushes to uncover some interesting trends on time-of day targeting for push notifications.

Here’s what they discovered:

– Pushes sent and opened trends upward throughout the day, with a small peak around noon, a slightly larger one around 3pm, and the largest in the evening

The post-evening trend is interesting: after 6pm, on a relative basis, Pushes Opened starts to trend higher, relative to previous hours, and Pushes Sent is lower

This indicates that while mobile apps are delivering a ton of pushes leading up to evening, it might be more effective to time them post-evening, when engagement seems high.
