How to make email and customer service personal
by Chance Smith
Want to make things personal for your clients?
Add your face. No, not just pictures.
Add gifs! Done.
At Sodium Halogen, William (founder) encrouaged me to use animated gifs to help make our emails stand out to our clients. I have taken that advice and stepped it up a few levels.
I make my own.
My hope is to keeps my emails fun and personal for the people that help pay for my talents. Here is how I stand out in the sea of emails, no matter where I’m working from.
Here is my Top 10 Gif Collection for 2014 and how I use them.
