Be it onboarding new customers or sending them new discounts, we rely on emails to communicate. Customers, on the other hand, receive hundreds of emails in their inboxes every day. Since most of these mailers sound like bots, they lack that personal connection between the sender and recipients.

If you’re not getting the desired response, it means your emails lack personalization. At Hippo Video, we make personalization very effective and easy.
