New York Post
Sees Big Boosts
in Audience Engagement
& App Ratings
One of America’s most provocative news brands, the New York Post is known for its bold headlines and eye-catching front pages. Beyond its popular newsstand edition, the Post also has a massive digital presence, including an app that delivers breaking news, leading sports coverage, insightful business reporting, must-know metro news, exclusive gossip and more to its mobile audience 24/7.
As it worked on expanding its national footprint, the Post was laser-focused on retaining and growing one of its most loyal audiences — its app users. The media giant partnered with Airship to quickly and reliably deliver its notoriously bold headlines to segmented audiences using Push Notifications.
The New York Post’s digital network attracts over 80 million unique monthly visitors to its websites, including the flagship NYPost.com, Decider.com and PageSix.com.
Airship is a key part of the Post’s strategy to build stronger relationships with users by delivering the news first and creating an amazing app experience. Using Airship, the media brand retains higher-than-industry average open rates for breaking news pushes and increased its App Store rating by 60%.
