In this tutorial we will demonstrate how to interact with your most active users using push notifications, with our powerful segmentation tool. We will create a monthly notification for the users that visited your app at least once in the last month. Since this users are already prone to use the app more than other users, you can try to direct them so a special page in your app and increase your revenues from them using ads, in app purchases, coupons and more.
