Blogs To Signatures

By: rrao

Automatically converts your company's blog posts into email-signature and helps dramatically improve quality and quantity of your blog's reach by democratizing it.

As you know almost every company has a blog which they use to promote their products, services, events etc.

But,  blogs have following inherent-issues:

  1. Only a fraction of people are savvy enough to subscribe.

  2. Unless its picked up by major blogging sites like Techcrunch, AllthingsD etc, its not going have great reach.

  3. Reach to potential future-customers, especially those who write checks, is virtually Zero.

On the other hand, our Marketing, Sales, SE, BD etc teams constantly  talk to customers, their management team and exchange 100s or 1000s of emails a day. So, I thought why not use the power of good old email and convert these posts into signatures.

The advantages are huge:

  1. You can democratize the marketing effort by leveraging all (or most) of your employees for marketing.

  2. You get to show what your company is up to and swing fence-sitters

  3. It is not a cheesy ad but something you put in your blog, so is very professional and is targeted.

  4. We don't have to worry about over-tweeting or something (people can always disable it)

How it works:

System admin needs to set up Company blog's RSS url during installation(defaults to Zimbra's blog). After that its automatic. Every day, it automatically pulls up blog post's RSS feed and caches it. Then randomly selects one of the feeds and sets that as signature. So, every time user composes, it will set different blogs

  • Great Zimlet, but be carefuly with use of bit.ly in Mails 

    By: krabina on on 7/1/15 for version 0.2

    The Zimlet is great and works well. You have to be careful, though with using bit.ly-links in e-mails. I just tracked down a e-mail delivery problem. the spam filter of the recipient considered e-mails with bit.ly-links as 100% spam.So I'd like to see the possibility to disable the bit.ly-function.

    There is certainly a habit that
    we feel that relocation is made for non living materials only. And this is not
    the correct point in any way. There are our few very soft darlings who spend
    their living with us in pour assistance in different means and so turn into an
    inevitable an important part of our life which breakable darlings are our pets.
    Of course our sweet pets are someone that is certainly the preferred brought
    item in our future location. But for a number of it is a terrific difficulty to
    go with their pet that is why they opt to go away from them especially in cases
    where the move is a really long miles run. Obviously numerous owners drop off
    the idea of carrying their family pet in the new home even though of the
    difficulty of carrying or moving such living life forms together. But now they
    could get it done unhesitant. Absolutely yes, you got it ideal with the aid of
    packers and movers right now it’s possible to change place pets safely in the
    next destination. They give you family pet relocation services and several
    others too who is dedicated to family pet relocation only. You have to take
    their help to rejoice in the animals presence in the latest destination. They
    proceed organized and so comply with every norm necessary for the risk-free
    relocation of your house-pet. They be cautious for the ideal fooding and even
    environment for your house-pet with the intention that it could not obtain
    bothered as well as disrupted at the time of the shift. In additional to this
    in the event you want your house pet to be transited to your next spot in in
    foreign countries they may try to make organization for most the formalities
    such as custom clearance and so forth. which means that these kind of things

  • Great potential 

    By: adepretis on on 12/15/10 for version 0.2

    This Zimlet has great potential but needs some additional work for hosting providers and multi-domain/multi-blog environments.I will try to modify it myself in time but if the author has some spare time, please:make the bit.ly username and API key a setting, not hardcoded in the Zimletmake the Blog Feed-URL and title configurable on the user level and - even better - on the domain leveltake HTML-Signatures into account: at least when testing it, the bit.ly-link was not wrapped within <a></a>furthermore, for HTML-Signatures, the style should be possible to change (font-size, font-family, ...)add additional newlines/line-breaks after the Blog-Signature, otherwise the signature sticks to the very bottom of a mail and can easily be overlocked
