Emeryville, CA (January 18th, 2012) Follr, Inc., today announced a partnership with WiseStamp, creator of the leading social email signature builder. The partnership allows Follr users to share their Digital Identity Website link through WiseStamp Email Apps transforming every email into a powerful self expression and promotional tool.
Follr’s Digital Identity Websites organize and aggregate an individual’s online information making it accessible via one memorable Website address and are increasingly being used by corporations to extend and protect their brand. Users will now be able to easily generate an e-mail signature which will include a Follr icon and a direct link to their Follr Website.
With email still dominating online communication, Follr’s software platform provides any brand with an opportunity to take advantage of the inherently viral ‘social Web’. E-mail signatures are an important, unobtrusive and currently underused marketing tool that every Follr user can now implement to automatically and effortlessly share all of their contact information.
WiseStamp Email Apps enable individuals to customize email signatures with social profiles ensuring each outgoing email includes dynamic content like blog content, their latest tweet or the promotion of a cause. Email recipients see the updated content and can interact with it directly from the email by, for example, re-tweeting content or following the sender.
“This relationship is one of several we will be announcing in the coming months as we focus on growth via new markets,“ stated Follr Co-Founder, Mark Wayman adding “This feature enhancement is one of many we are adding as we work on significantly extending Follr’s functionality.”
While Follr currently helps people organize their overwhelming online information into one Website it is increasingly being used as a networking tool creating an environment where consumers, professionals and brands can be found more easily.
"We are excited to add support for Follr to the WiseStamp platform." says Tom Piamenta, VP of Partnerships at WiseStamp. WiseStamp’s partners play a key role in the experience WiseStamp users enjoy and help to provide new ways to accomplish the company’s vision.
The integration of the Follr platform with the WiseStamp Email Apps increases the power of both tools through engagement and user retention. Simultaneously publishers can leverage an effective distribution channel to extend brand and content beyond the boundaries of their traditional Websites.
