What are the best days and times to send mobile push messages? How long should these notifications be? What should they say?
Localytics recently set out to answer those questions by examining the click rates of more than 100 million push messages sent by mobile apps.
The analysis found the average click rate—defined as the percentage of users who actually clicked a push notification upon receiving it from an app—was 5.5% across all messages.

Below, key findings from the report on which key factors impacted message click rates.
