The top 3 benefits of a professional email address to grow your business
The saying remains true, first impressions are Everything. In the online world your first impression is usually through email as the first thing your potential customer sees is your email address. Using Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, or Gmail for your professional email address hints that you are dealing with either an unprofessional or fraudulent business. In turn, a professional email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org offers the following benefits:
1. Builds your brand and promotes business
Every time you send an email, you are advertising your business name and sharing your website address. Why advertise for Hotmail, Yahoo, or other companies when you could be advertising for yourself?
2. Builds Trust among your existing and potential customers
Do you want your clients to take you serious? People like to do business with trustworthy companies that use an email address that looks official. Have you ever wondered what gives you a professional website? Find the answer in our blog post here.
3. Increases deliverability of your emails
Sending emails to your potential customers can be tricky as spam blockers may assume that your emails are spam or unsafe and your messages will likely be deleted or never opened, especially if you send a high volume of emails. Using a professional email account increases deliverability of your emails by over 50%
