Salesforce Ben

Founded in 2014, Salesforce Ben is the largest salesforce blog in the world with 250K+ readers per month. It’s run by two passionate bloggers, Ben McCarthy and Lucy Mazalon. While Ben covers everything salesforce under the banner of Salesforce Ben, Lucy looks over The Drip, which covers everything salesforce marketing automation.




Custom Software, Web Application


Salesforce Ben, run by Ben McCarthy and Lucy Mazalon, faced a challenge with their One Signal application on WordPress. The blog, which has over 250K readers per month, includes two different sections - Salesforce Ben and The Drip, each catering to a distinct audience.

The objectives were:

Customized Notifications:

    • Implement a system to separate and customize notifications for the two different blog sections.


Increased User Engagement:

    • Enhance user engagement by ensuring that readers receive relevant notifications.


Traffic Boost:

  • Increase blog traffic by optimizing the notification system for better user engagement.
