Eat Well Nashville’s Unique Web Push Strategy

Before we look at their web push strategy, we need to understand how their business works:

Eat Well Nashville prepares and delivers deliciously healthy, ready-to-eat meals to your home or office. They use a weekly ordering basis with no subscription or minimums involved. People interested in ordering must place their orders by 11 A.M. on Fridays to have the meals delivered on the following Sunday or Monday.

They have a full marketing stack— email SMS, social media posts, web push notifications— to successfully reach their audience.

“The push notifications we use through PushOwl is one of our most important marketing channels because it consistently reminds our customers to place their order in a way that’s not overwhelming.”

They typically send four different push notifications per week:

1. On Wednesdays, their web push message features the new meals added to the menu. It also includes any promotions they might be running.

2. Web push sent on Thursdays lets people know that the order deadline is coming up.

3. Two web push notifications are sent on Friday to establish urgency. This helps them get as many people to order as possible before the deadline.

“Our push notification strategy with PushOwl paired with our other marketing channels work in perfect harmony with each other to keep our food in the front of mind with our customers.”

We hope this excellent strategy by Eat Well Nashville gives you an idea of the ways you can adapt your web push strategy to fit your unique needs.
