Branch and Blueshift: Enabling seamless cross-channel personalization

With Blueshift’s personalization and Branch’s deep linking capabilities, marketers can now deliver  frictionless personalized experiences to their users across all channels.

Let’s take the instance of Jane. Jane is browsing through email on her mobile phone during her short break, and an email promotion for a weekend get-away grabs her attention. Clicking on the email leads her to the app’s home page where she spends a few secs looking for the promotional offer. Frustrated, she moves on to the next email assuming the get away is not meant to be, and makes alternate plans for the weekend. Not only did Jane not convert, she also had a frustrating experience with the app, making it less likely for her to go back.

In the example above, if Jane did not have the app installed, she might have been taken to the right page on the mobile website in her browser, albeit without any of the advantages of frictionless transaction on the app. Just like mobile websites have URLs that can “deep-link” to the right content, marketers need the ability to deep-link into mobile apps. Additionally, they need the ability to automatically detect if the customer has an app installed, and route the customer appropriately to the deep-linked content on the website or the app.

That is why we are excited to partner with Branch, the leader in deep linking. Combined with Blueshift’s personalization and recommendation capabilities on email, mobile apps and mobile websites, this provides the modern marketer a way to deliver seamless personalization to the perpetually connected customer.

Deliver frictionless experience with deep links

Deep links automatically take a user to in-app content or to the web if the app is not already installed. Mobile apps with deep links show 3x higher conversion. Blueshift supports deep links at scale in both email (for web and mobile) and SMS/push notifications and provides full attribution from first campaign to final conversion.

Here is an example of Blueshift’s native support for deep-linking:
