What is informvisitors?

informvisitors lets you talk to your subscribers in a succinct, easy and delightful manner, using push notifications on browser. Push Notifications are clickable messages sent directly to your subscribers’ browsers (even when they are not on your website). These work on all devices — desktops, tablets and even mobile phones — so you don’t even have to invest in building a mobile app for your business. The opt-in and click rates are amazing! Some of our early adopters have seen an opt-in rate of 40% (10X the rate at which an average email list builds, and 20X the rate at which an average Twitter list populates) and a click rate of 20%. Of course, you get to see all this data, right in your informvisitors dashboard, updated real-time.

Let us help you get amazing returns on your communications. For any questions, please get in touch with us at gd@informvisitors.com

FCM Details:
Google has deprecated GCM service post April, 2019 and advised all users to migrate to Firebase Cloud Messaging(FCM). In accordance with the notification we have also upgraded from GCM to FCM. We strongly advice all our clients to create their own FCM accounts and input their credentials . For a step by step guidance on how to create or migrate from GCM to FCM please go through this link GCM to FCM Migration guide .

Please input the following data in the dashboard

  • FCM Project ID
  • FCM Web API Key
  • FCM APP ID
  • FCM Sender ID
  • FCM Server key
  • FCM Vapid key

Failure to input the same data will result in using shared credentials for sending notifications. We strongly recommend to provide your own FCM credentials for sending notifications.

Note :
Make sure your website has service worker and manifest.json files with updated code as mentioned above.
