The Challenge
Publishers Clearing House is a free-to-play, chance-to-win digital entertainment site with a wide portfolio of gaming apps such as PCH Wordmania, PCH Lotto, PCH+, PCH Slots and Treasure Match that was looking for a cohesive customer engagement solution. They needed a partner to help boost their major KPIs such as retention, new users, conversions and CTR while streamlining everything all in one platform.They were also looking to re-engage dormant users and predict their likelihood to return to the apps, especially during Superprize season!
The Solution

PCH enabled MoEngage’s prediction capabilities to reactivate over 30,000 dormant/inactive PCH+ app users, averaging 3.93% overall conversion rate.

They utilized A/B testing on Moengage which allowed them to optimize the correct incentive to drive app engagement each day. They tested personalization, emojis, tokens, Superprize entries and weekly grand prize entries through push and in-app messaging.

During their Superprize Contest, PCH activated MoEngage segmentation, in-app pop-ups and push messaging based on their user’s loyalty status, offering them different entries which boosted DAU’s by 23% and allowed PCH to identify the user’s status which has proven to raise CTRs.
