Emojis have become an ubiquitous part of everyday internet culture, so it’s no surprise that brands are increasingly using them to connect with consumers.
Here are three of the ways brands are using emojis in their digital campaigns and communications.
Email Subject Lines
With more and more email clients, including Outlook and the iPhone email app, supporting emojis in subject lines, it’s no surprise that the catchy characters are increasingly used.
While MailChimp says it hasn’t yet seen “a consistent positive or negative impact from using emojis,” it notes that emojis are great for “pack[ing] more information and emotion into shorter messages.”
Observing that Google had been supporting the display of emojis in the SERPs, brands like Expedia began experimenting with the addition of emojis to page titles.
Google subsequently announced that it will be ending support for the display of emojis in page titles, suggesting that this tactic will probably not grow in popularity any time soon, but future changes could put these back on the table.
