It is the small things that make a difference when running a small business.
Most people miss this step, even if they have a website. If you have a domain (yourbusiness.com), it is likely that you have at least 1 free email with your current hosting. Make sure your business communications look more professional by using an address that features your domain (like firstname.lastname@example.org). An email that features your website domain shows that you’re serious about your business to new customers and potential partners.
If you are not sure how to create your own email address, contact the person/company that registered your domain, for the most part they are quite helpful and will guide you as to what you need to do.
Here are some more reasons why you should register your domain email address(es):
- You can create multiple email addresses like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to organise incoming emails.
- It offers customers consistency. The messages you (and your team) send present a united, professional face for your business to the outside world.
- Lastly, you will raise awareness of your brand and website. A professional email with your website domain at the end of it is a form of advertising, and you’ll raise awareness of your brand with every email you send.
