Our everyday lives are abuzz with calls, emails, pings, and rings. This fast-paced, digital world can make it difficult for anybody who’s trying to reach a distracted audience.
Going beyond the written word is an easy way to get your message across effectively and efficiently. (It can be pretty fun, too!) After all; rich media moments are the best way to engage audiences in today’s hyper-saturated landscape. Even in 2017, Hubspot found people pay more attention to video content and skim written content.
This year, we’re dealing you in to better ways of communication with a full deck of ideas for using Vyond. Here are four fun examples of how to make an animated GIF that can take your message to the next level:
Go beyond boring calendar notifications, and invite folks to your next meeting with a GIF!
By using Vyond’s Character Creator, you can personalize your invitation to show who’s invited, who’s coming, and who’s leading. You can also include other visual cues that are easy to digest at-a-glance.
You can send your invitation by email and share it across other platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams, and community groups. In this example, Vyond’s own Shari Bryant enticed her teammates to join a new company book club.
If you already have an account in Vyond, you can import this invite as a template and customize it!
A text-based “Out of Office” message is a huge bummer. All it stands for is a slower response.
By animating your automatic reply, you can get closer to your contacts by showing what you’re up to. It’s also a more memorable way to update folks on when they can expect you to get their email.
Create your own vacation responder in Vyond Studio, starting with a generic GIF. You can then quickly customize it with new dates, scenes, and activities when you need it. They’re also a great way to send seasonal cheer during a regional holiday.

Static presentation slides can disengage audiences faster than you can launch PowerPoint. Adding GIFs to master slides is a superb way to draw viewers in.
Unlike the popular GIFs you see on social media, this animation features slow ambient movement that draws the eye to the most important information. By incorporating iconography, it also gets everybody on the same page—or slide—in a more accessible way.
In Vyond’s webinars, we apply this idea with scene templates like this one. By making the most of the enter effects and motion paths in Vyond Studio, we can engage audiences even while we’re still settling in.

Your training might be fun, informative, and highly impactful, but that won’t matter if you can’t even engage your team to attend the session.
Apply a marketer’s mindset to “sell” your training! With something as quick and simple as a GIF, you can create a fun way for getting the word out.
If you have a Vyond account, you can import this example as a video template and add your own custom characters.
