SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sometimes, the biggest things in life — be it a relationship, a friendship or a career or opportunity — can all start with one simple word: Hey.
Or, as Synchora creative director Andrew Danner would spell it: Heyy. Heyy is an app that is something like a digital business card. Users of the app can create custom networking and promotional messages, and include photos and links in those messages. The creators of Heyy aim to give companies and individuals more control over that all-important first impression. "Heyy was born out of the desire to empower people to make their best impression," says Danner, who has done previous work for AT&T and AMC Networks. "Our CEO has an extensive background in events and entertainment, so he realized how key being memorable is to building relationships. Paired with our Co-Founder Régis Maag's experience founding 5 digital companies, we were confident we could build something dynamic for users. We're very excited and proud of the result." In addition to including photos and written content, users can also link to other social media sites in their Heyy messages, putting a twist on the normal networking site profile. "We love user-centric products," Danner says. "We found that by letting users customize what they share — from LinkedIn to Instagram — you can cultivate relationships on a case-by-case basis. This way, each interaction is seamlessly tailored to both the person and the situation." In the new app update, users will even be able to share posts with friends who are not yet Heyy users — without sacrificing anyone's privacy.
