ATLANTA, January 13, 2009 - Softscribe Inc., a technology Internet public relations firm that drives sales for companies targeting the green tourism and hospitality, green government and related markets, today announced the launch of its Video Email Snacks social media product that enables clients to reach out more effectively to key audiences. The one-minute video emails, which include a brief personal message from a familiar company executive and links to more in-depth material, are used by companies to:
  • Improve the quality of customer references; 
  • Educate customers to better use company products; 
  • Drive visitors to a User’s Forum on client or social media websites; 
  • Close the gap of explaining concepts that are too complex for the written word; 
  • Enable users to share best practices with each other.
Sample Video Email Snacks:  Twitter - Are Your Customers There Without You?

“Video Email Snacks are short, entertaining, high value ‘face mails’ that a viewer can access at the best time for them during their day,” said Michael Squires, president of Softscribe Inc., which provides marketing and communications programs for green tourism and hospitality, green government and related markets.  “It works.  In a case study on how to add video to an email, Marketing Sherpa reports up to a 25% jump in conversions.”  Squires noted Softscribe’s own version of Video Email Snacks, a free quarterly email called Marketing Snacks, delivers insights to clients, prospects and influencers about new media and other high value topics that help companies achieve their business goals.
