Branded business email addresses offer business credibility and stability. A branded email address indicates a real business. Personal email addresses always raise doubt about the professionalism of a business, a bit like landlines used to in the good old days.
A business email address is dedicated solely to your business and ends with the domain name you have selected. Too many small business owners do not realize what a big impact a professionally branded email address can have on your business.
Your business email address also offers consistency, when all team members are using the same business domain it is a strong display of unity.
Because your email address and website domain correspond, a branded business email address also creates brand awareness.
Each time you and your team member email somebody, your email address is a distinct reminder of your brand.
A branded business email address is affordable for businesses of all sizes.
Even if you don’t have multiple employees, you can create multiple email accounts to handle different types of communication, and redirect them to one primary email address. This way you won’t need to access multiple email accounts, but can allocate communications in a streamlined way.
As your business continues to grow you can very easily add email addresses for new employees and departments. Hosted business email accounts allow you to still receive email correspondence for employees who have left the business.
If, up until now you have been using a personal email address to communicate with customers, it is still a good idea to switch to a business address. Simply use automatic forwarding to forward the message to your new business address.
