Mixpanel Integration

About Mixpanel

Mixpanel makes analytics self-serve for your product teams and enables everyone to answer questions around user conversion, retention and activation.

Mixpanel Integration

The Mixpanel Integration with MoEngage allows you to export Mixpanel cohorts to Moengage and send personalized campaigns to all the users under this cohort from MoEngage. You can also send the campaign interaction events from MoEngage to Mixpanel and use them for enriching your analytics and cohorts on Mixpanel.

How can this integration help you?

The Mixpanel - MoEngage Integration will allow you to leverage the advanced cohorts that you have in Mixpanel and target them through one of the Moengage campaigns directly and also see the campaign events from MoEngage in your Mixpanel cohorts / analytics views.

Below are a few use-cases where the integration can add a lot of value to your analytics + user engagement activities -

  • E-commerce: Understand the seasonal changes in purchase trends that are happening and send rich push notifications to such users via MoEngage. For example, target the cohort of users who purchase high value items during summers and send the rich push notifications with similar recommended items.

  • Travel: You can create a cohort in Mixpanel of millennial users who are also premium users of your app and send them popular and unique holiday destination recommendations via MoEngage emails.

  • E-learning: Understand where your users are dropping off while watching a video series on your platform and bring them back with engaging campaigns! Through insights into user behavior, you are armed with a holistic picture of exactly what actions can trigger a user to return to the app.

  • One-time export: This will only export the users under the cohort to MoEngage once and the cohort will not sync thereafter.

The custom segment can be used in any MoEngage campaigns to send personalized messages to the users under this segment.

 

User Mapping between Mixpanel and MoEngage

When you are exporting cohorts from Mixpanel to MoEngage, all users in your Mixpanel cohort will be attempted to be mapped with unique user profiles in MoEngage. We will be relying on a unique user identifier that will be present across Mixpanel and MoEngage users for mapping. This identifier will also be used when sending campaign events from MoEngage to Mixpanel.

You need to ensure that you are adding an alias for your mixpanel distinct_id and that the same identifier is used as ID in MoEngage.
