ThingLink has developed an easy and novel way to share heartfelt, personalized greetings inside digital holiday cards and wish lists.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
Just in time for a most wonderful time of the year, image engagement tools provider, ThingLink is celebrating the holiday season with the launch of its Interactive Holiday Cards and Wish Lists Maker. The free to use web service allows users to record and embed personal audio messages into holiday photos to give their loved ones something to remember, or to make favorite gift ideas on wish lists come to life, empowered with content from around the web.
“For many younger people, traditional holiday cards are boring and standardized eCard greetings are still somewhat impersonal. ThingLink has developed an easy and novel way to share heartfelt, personalized greetings inside digital holiday cards and wish lists,” said ThingLink CEO Ulla Engeström. “Our single image upload service eliminates the need for a separate publishing platform, meaning that anyone can post, tag and share interactive images directly from our homepage at ThingLink.com.”
Visit ThingLink.com and upload a favorite holiday photo, either by dragging the image anywhere atop the ThingLink.com home page or by clicking the ‘upload’ button and selecting one from your computer. Video and music players such as YouTube can be added, along with Flickr photos of family members and personal audio messages can be brought into the mix by using the record feature, powered by leading social sound platform, SoundCloud, to make the greeting card a tailored, interactive experience.
Favorite holiday songs and videos, links to relevant websites (or gift ideas) are all embeddable, and if all you want for Christmas is more followers, rich media tags linking to Twitter or Facebook can be added too. Friends and family can be encouraged to upload images and create greetings at the ThingLink site via sharing on social network platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. Cards are then ready to email, to avoid taking chances with the Christmas postal service.
