Web Notifications can be an extremely powerful tool for the marketer. Mautic integrated with OneSignal which allows you to push information to a Contact as they browse through web resources (Mautic Landing Pages, or with some configuration (see OneSignal web push documentation), on your own website), giving you one more Channel that you can use to build a relationship with them.
Web notifications in Mautic use OneSignal by default. Using your own OneSignal account, you can now push a notification to your Contacts’s browser - with their permission. Enable the OneSignal Plugin in Mautic’s Configuration to see Web Notifications listed under Channels in the menu.
For more information see the OneSignal OneSignal web push quickstart documentation.
