Say Goodbye to Your Hotmail Account and Get a Professional Email Address
Still using your old Hotmail or Gmail account to communicate with customers and colleagues? OK, so it was free, big deal. What you may not be considering is that when someone receives an email from CrazyFlowerLady@hotmail.com, you are giving them a reason to doubt your abilities. This is now costing you money because of a potentially lost customer or project.
So, you create another free account, this time using your business name, RhondasFloralService@hotmail.com. Everything is good again…except for the fact that you are marketing for Hotmail (Microsoft) instead of your website!
Domain-Based Email for Small Businesses
With so many email hosting services available, it is hard to know which option is best. Domain-based email, which is simply an email address set up under your domain (YourWebsite.com), is the most professional email choice. This small business email solution gives you the ability to switch email hosting vendors or internet providers at any time without losing important emails. It is not only a great way to market your business but also market your website!
Why Setup Domain-Based Email?
Domain-based email is a great way for small businesses to communicate with clients and colleagues. This professional email option allows you to use your name, such as Rhonda@YourWebsite.com or something more generic, like Info@YourWebsite.com for daily correspondence. Small business email allows you to communicate and market your website at the same time professionally. Rhonda is not marketing her website; she is marketing for Hotmail! Those who see a domain associated with your email address will visit your website out of pure intrigue. Listing your email address on your business cards, email signature, and other marketing materials is also a subtle way to promote your website.
Business Professional Email Options
When you take domain-based email and combine it with cloud-based tools to help improve efficiency within your business, you are getting the best of both worlds. Office 365 and Google G Suite are both very good options for professional email.
Microsoft Office 365
Office 365 is one of the most common email solutions used in businesses today. It allows your staff to share important meetings, events, contacts, calendars, and more. With everyone already familiar with Microsoft's Outlook, Word, Excel, and other applications, this is a logical upgrade.
- Use Familiar Apps
- Collaborate with Others
- Free Microsoft Upgrades
- Access Files Anywhere
- Secure Your Data
G Suite by Google Cloud
Google G Suite is another great cloud-based email option. It is simply a professional version of Gmail. If your office is already familiar with the Gmail interface and the free apps included in your account, there is no training involved! As far as the features you get with G Suite, they are pretty comparative to Microsoft Office 365. Even for the employees who insist on using Outlook, Google provides Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook!
- Work Together in Real Time
- Conduct Meetings Online
- Secure & Archive Data
- Store & Share Files
