“All communication channels have their own strengths, so a multichannel strategy encompassing mobile and web push, in-app messaging, SMS, and email is key to attracting and retaining customers by reaching them where they are,” said George Deglin, CEO of OneSignal. “This data shows that mobile is poised to be the primary channel to reach customers effectively, and brands offering more personalized, automated customer journeys will drive crucial improvements for customer engagement. Leveraging additional channels will grow your aggregate opted-in customer base and deliver immediate and sustained retention and loyalty gains.”

The data analysis and the qualitative customer survey reported that better customization and automated delivery of messages improved customer acquisition and retention. 68% said having a multichannel communication strategy was very important or extremely important to their user experience, with best practices like leveraging graphics and templates, A/B Testing, and localization resulting in the best message engagement. Most respondents (54%) are very confident messaging campaigns positively impact company goals.
