Jerry Rice Drafted for Team SocialMail; Love Your Inbox Again
Football legend and retired SF 49er Jerry Rice joins SocialMail team as Brand Ambassador. SocialMail is tackling a conundrum faced by consumers for the last two decades: consumers want deals and updates from their favorite brands, but don’t want the marketing emails clogging their inboxes.
“Jerry is like every man and woman out there that suffers from email overload. We are excited to have Jerry Rice, NFL superstar with a broad appeal, to be the face of a mass market problem,” says Ankesh Kumar, CEO.
Jerry, as Brand Ambassador, will be promoting the Palo Alto based start-up in a variety of upcoming web-based advertisements, promotions, and social events.
“I am excited to be a part of a company that wants to solve a problem that everyone with email struggles with," says Jerry Rice, Brand Ambassador. "What excited me about SocialMail is the size of the problem we are solving. As you know, in my career I was never satisfied with just getting into the playoffs, I wanted to win the whole thing. SocialMail, by connecting users and brands globally, has the potential to be the platform for brands to connect with their followers.”
Given that this is a global problem, SocialMail has also released marketing emails based in China, Japan, India, and the UK. This is just the beginning to the world’s largest brand network.
