If you are a blogger and are looking for a way to engage actively with your audience, by connecting to them at a deeper professional level, using a web app of course, then this post is for you. With most professional communication being done using email, it is essential that you provide your email recipients with more options to learn about who you are, what you or your company stand for. For instance, providing a sneak peek into the latest happenings on your blog or on your social media status is more likely to spark your reader’s interest in you and your blog. This will help build a strong social network and give wider visibility to your business. And the best thing is that you don’t really have to do something dramatic to establish your presence. Just create signatures with social media buttons using a free web browser add-on called WiseStamp. This add-on works only on selected email clients and browsers. Since I’m a big fan of RockMelt, I gave this one a try on the new social browser, and it worked beautifully.

I used Wisestamp earlier, but now since Gmail also started offering HTML signatures some time back, I switched to that.
Still I’ll say Wisestamp is a nice and easy way to create signatures. And you have explained how to go with it nicely 🙂

Rightly said Anshul. It is more convenient to have the signature feature integrated into the email client, but it’s also pretty cool to use the App Edge in RockMelt to insert the signature. And what works well for one situation may not be so effective elsewhere, These different apps gives us the ability to play around with different options and that’s always fun and exciting!!
