Premier League's messaging strategy solves the major challenges mobile apps face with engaging less active app user segments

It’s hard to engage less active mobile app users to increase retention KPIs.

So how did messaging help mobile app marketers at Premier League connect with their audiences and increase app retention?

Push notifications

Increase engagement with 80% Messenger notification opt-ins and reach contacts directly even if they uninstall your app.


Collect customer signals to improve personalization and increase order frequency with hyper relevant offers.

Premier League increases customer engagement and app retention with exclusive content and in-app prizes

It’s not easy to encourage users to use an app once they downloaded it. Premier League managed to incentivize their less active app users by offering exclusive content and in-app special prizes in a fully automated guided experience on Messenger. 

Using zero party data from chat conversations to understand customer needs, Premier League sent special prizes on Messenger that could be redeemed in their mobile app. This encouraged customers to use the app, significantly increasing app retention rates. 

The personalized offers sent via Messenger also enabled Premier League to reach each contact directly even if they uninstalled the app and win back users with special coupons.
