The Voodoo Clipper – Transforming How You Send Links via Gmail
In the fast pace Real Estate environment where competition is rife you will want to stand out from your competitors. One way of doing this is by using new and innovative technologies to deliver accessible information in a clear and attractive way and that’s where the Voodoo Clipper comes in.
What is Voodoo Clipper?
The Voodoo Clipper is a Chrome Extension that creates a smart new way of sending links via email, turning them into something much more than just a line of text. Now with one click you can send an attractive, web page link with description & image direct from Gmail.
How does it work?
Voodoo Clipper will automatically collect information from a web page to create an attractive, formatted link using the page’s OG Meta data. Open Graph technology was first introduced by Facebook back in 2010, allowing integration between the platform and its user’s website data. Think about what happens when you share a link on Facebook – images and text snippets are gathered from the webpage to accompany it, creating a much more appealing and inviting way to display a clickable link. Well this is the same concept behind this Google Chrome extension; it identifies which elements of your web page you want to show when someone shares your link.
Obviously your website’s Open Graph meta tags will need to be in place correctly for the clipper to work but you can easily check to see if it is by using tools such as Facebook’s Sharing Debugger or Iframely – if the link previews look right then you’re good to go!
Voodoo Clipper is very easy to use with 3 pre-set preview options to choose from or if you have coding skills, then there are also advanced options for you to create bespoke styling and content. Once you have chosen your preview option it can then be pasted directly onto your email.
Why use the Voodoo Clipper?
Voodoo Clipper is designed with Real Estate businesses in mind. In an industry where communication and content are key, the use of this Chrome Extension will essentially transform an unattractive standard text link into something that clients are more likely to click on.
As we know, prospective buyers often request information on more than one property at one time. Bombarding someone with emails and images of various listings is not only time consuming for you, but it can be a bit over whelming for the recipient. But with the Voodoo Clipper you can quickly & easily add multiple preview links of various properties leading to different web pages all in one single email – the result is almost like creating your very own mini-mail shot but directly from your Gmail account. An added bonus is that If you are using HubSpot CRM, the information/email can then be tracked and recorded on the contact’s timeline.
How to get the Voodoo Clipper
The Voodoo Clipper is available from the Chrome Web Store at just €1.49 a month.
