I agree with Chrissi Chapman Topoleski. It really depends, William Piotrowski. From my experience, in terms of efficient marketing, folks tend to gravitate toward, and respond more to, down-to-earth, human exchanges vs. the rigid, overly sterile (almost robotic). I'd steer clear of communicating with emoji-intensive sentences, though. - Tim
