In Part 1, we’ve learned how to create a simple, thoughtful, personalized holiday greeting image for everyone, using our Happy Birthday app.
In Part 2, I’ll show how our Social Assistant app helps you to make a big impact with less effort by making it a lot easier to create individual greeting images for your important friends.
How it works
We said it in Part 1: one great way to create a thoughtful greeting message is to personalize it and, of course, make it look beautiful.
When it’s for a group of people, a greeting image can be personalized with content only related to you. But when it’s for a specific person, it’s of course best to personalize it with content related to both you and the person you’re sending your greetings to.
If you are looking to send a group card to all your friends at once, this tutorial is not for you, and you might be looking for Part 1. If you are a Photoshop pro, and it’s a piece of cake for you to create beautiful cards for several friends, or if you are using a specialized service to send customized cards to a list of contacts, this is not for you either.
But If you are looking for a simple way to send an individual greeting messages to a select list of important friends, you may be concerned about spending a lot of time and effort creating a personalized card for each and every friend on your list that you want to make a big impact on.
Rejoice! as you can do that easily this year using our Social Assistant application.
All it takes is only a few steps and a few clicks.
Step 1: Log In to Social Assistant
Log in to Symbyoz – Social Assistant and go to the “Friends” tab.
If you’ve already added your list of important friends there, you’re good to go.
Otherwise, you’ll need to add friends. That’s done by simply clicking on the “Add a friend” button on the tool bar menu and following the next step.
Step 2: Add your important friends
Click on “select” to select friends from your Facebook account.
If you want to add friends that are not connected to Facebook, or if you do not want link your Facebook account to Symbyoz, you can also simply type their name and an email address.
Note that you will not to be able to post the greeting on Facebook for friends that are not connected to a Facebook account.
When you are done selecting/typing the friend name and email address, simply click “Add”.
Step 3: Open the greeting card creation canvas
There is a “Catch-Up” button next to the line with your friend. Simply click on that button, then click on “Create greetings card”.
Step 4: Tweak your personalized card collage
Tweak the collage the way you like it …
Same drill as in Part 1: you can change the background, move or rotate the text and the images, add the logo of your company, the pictures of your cat, your favorite quote … OR … you can save time, do absolutely nothing and go with the default arrangement we created for you.
Step 5: Select your delivery Channel and Send
Select the delivery channel and simply send your message.
Congratulation, you’re done, only 19 more friends to do …
Step 4: Rinse and repeat
Simply do it again for all your important friends in your list.
It may take more time than sending a collective message to a group in one single shot, but the reward of having every single of your important friends receiving a beautiful, personalized and specific greeting just for them is huge, and we’re making it a lot easier than it could have been … for free! :-)
Seize that opportunity to make a big impact in your loved ones lives.
