Crafting Alerts that Get Noticed

Community Manager

We all know alerts tell people what to look at and when to look at it. But the truth is, plain-text alerts get ignored and good-looking alerts get read. Fortunately, all it takes to set up engaging alerts is a little HTML and CSS know-how. Kevin M. Sparenberg shows you the basics of using HTML and CSS in your alerts, including some tips he's gotten from the field. With pretty alerts, you can get a huge return on a small-time investment.
