Why You Need a Professional Email Address

First Impressions Are Everything

If you don’t look trustworthy and professional, customers won’t do business with you.

Make a Great First Impression

How?

Have a well-designed business card to give potential customers. And include your email address and website on that business card.

Not an email like “treehugger834@yahoo.com”. But a REAL email that reflects your company name and branding – an email like “joesmith@acmetreeservice.com”.

Even if you don’t have a website, you can still have a professional, branded email address for as little as $5/month.

Use Consistent Branding

Owning your own domain URL (that’s the “address” of your website, like www.acmetreeservice.com) is critical, even if you don’t have a website.

You can use that domain for your email address. And you can build a website on it later.

But if you don’t own that URL already, chances are someone else will buy it. It’s hard to look professional if you don’t use your company name for your emails or website…

How to Get Started

Not sure where to start? Try this –

1  Register your domain URL. You don’t need a website to do this!

2  Choose your custom email address (e.g., yourname@yourcompany.com).

  Set up your email/online account. You can do this several ways:

  • through your hosting provider (if you have a website hosting plan, it usually comes with email included),
  • by setting up a stand-alone email plan with your domain registrar or other provider, or
  • by getting a Google Apps for Work email that uses your domain and gives you access to 30GB of cloud storage (this is what we recommend – click here for details.).

We can help with any and all of these. Just give us a call at 203-252-7456 or send us an email.
