BrandMyMail – Branded Email Templates

Potential clients take just seconds to judge a business based on the look of its marketing emails. Unfortunately, this can end up hurting many smaller businesses that don’t have the budgets to use sophisticated messaging software. As a result, many of these businesses end up sending emails that look unpolished and unprofessional – a definite turnoff to potential clients and customers.

Busy professionals that use Gmail for sending and receiving business messages now have a solution. BrandMyMail is a web-application that any Gmail user can use to create and send personalized, customized, branded emails that won’t get ignored or pushed aside. When you sign up for an account, you get access to BrandMyMail’s template editor. Using drag-and-drop functionality, this editor lets you place all the features you want in your business emails – including company banners, social media links, and embedded blog posts or videos. Once your email template is finalized, head back to your Gmail account and start selecting BrandMyMail as the “sendor” each time you send a new message out. The messages you’ve designed will be dropped into your email document, and they’ll be ready to send to clients in mere seconds.

iPhone users will appreciate being able to send branded BrandMyMail messages from their mobile devices, as well as their home and work computers. The web-application is powered by Python, Django, Postgresql, exim, Apache, and Amazon EC2, and it’s completely free for people to use.

  • Send professional looking business emails
