Messages are a powerful tool to engage with registered users in EveryoneSocial, whether it’s to deliver time-sensitive information, important updates, or simple teasers. Communicating with messages ensures you target the right audience to deliver brief, one-time messages via in-app notifications.
In this article, we’ll look at the concept of messages, explore their benefits, and go over the step-by-step details of how to create and send messages with EveryoneSocial.

What are messages
Messages are targeted, short-form communications sent to users when using EveryoneSocial. Messages are sent using Segments and appear as an in-app notification. These notifications are delivered directly within the app and are designed to provide users real-time updates and alerts about new content, FYIs, or other relevant information.
Messages contain a single line of text, which accepts emojis and may be clickable if the admin includes an optional URL. Admins can send Messages immediately, schedule them for later, and send an email with the in-app notification. An email has to accompany an in-app Message.
Use Messages to send targeted announcements to a specific user segment.
- Create simple teasers.
- Announce a new Group.
- Drive traffic to outside URLs, such as “Click here to watch our CEO on marketwatch.”
- Replace using the important post banner.
Makes posts stand out from the standard “x has posted an important post.”
- Improve user experience and onboarding.
For example, create a Group for Moderators that can be segmented and then send Messages to them.

Can I review data about Messages, open and click-through rate?
Great question! The best way to review message click rates is to use tracking links for the in-app notification’s URL and email hyperlinks. Data is not tracked within EveryoneSocial’s analytics for Messages.
