Messenger recently replaced subscription messaging with the new one-time notification feature. This powerful new tool allows you to broadcast timely follow-up messages outside the 24-hour window.
But first, what is the one-time notification?
This new feature allows a page to send a follow-up message after the 24-hour messaging window has ended. You first need to ask people if they want to receive a future notification about a specific topic. Once someone asks to be notified, the page will get permission to send a single message. It’s the perfect example of permission-based marketing!
A prime example of using the one-time notification feature for artists is a pre-save and release campaign. When you’re promoting your pre-save campaign, ask people to opt in to a one-time notification. Schedule a DM for release day and notify people the moment your song is released.
Upcoming event reminder. Imagine you’re hosting an event, like a signing session for your new book launch or a live webinar on Zoom. Ask people to opt in to a notification for when tickets go on sale, or the event is about the start. Make sure it’s sold out and people who want to join get a DM reminder.
A popular online retail trend is building hype well in advance of a new drop, so you can move your products fast. Let people schedule a one-time notification when the product drops, so it sells out immediately. Don’t forget to ask them if they want a notification when your next drop is available
