CUSTOM EMAIL DESIGN
Advantages to Having a Custom Email Address
When you launch a website, you want people to visit, check out your content, and engage with the site. In addition to social media and commenting, people also like to communicate and engage via email. When you have an email address that’s not associated with your web domain, people are less likely to email you. It can also look unprofessional when you use email addresses like @gmail.com or @yahoo.com. Fortunately, you have another option, custom domain email. Here are a few of the advantages that come with having a custom email address:
When you have a custom domain email address, it is easier for people to contact you. Your audience will find your personalized email address easier to remember when they need it. As long as they know your domain name, they can remember your email address.
People are more likely to engage with a website or company that has a custom email address. It makes you appear more official and better prepared to handle their queries.
Everyone has an email address. Usually it’s a gmail or yahoo account. You can set yourself apart with a personalized email address. Your custom email address also helps you increase brand awareness and demonstrate thought leadership. It makes you look more professional and well-established as an expert in your area of interest.
With some email addresses like @comcast.net, you can’t take them with you if you switch internet providers. You can maintain consistency and an appearance of reliability when you have a custom email address that you can take with you no matter what.
With your custom email address, you can also create a variety of addresses based on your needs. For example, you can create one for each purpose or department that you have. If you’re a business, you can create one for the billing, sales, and tech support departments. Or if you have a blog, you can create custom addresses based on the needs of your viewers like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
No matter what kind of website you have, a custom email address to match your domain can help you achieve your goals.
How Do You Set Up Custom Emails?
Setting up your own custom emails might be easier than you think. There are just four main steps:
Register your domain name (www.yourcompany.com or .net)
Get a hosting plan for your domain that includes emails (most do)
Use the hosting interface to add the email of your choice (email@example.com)
Either access the email online or add it to an email client like Outlook or Mac Mail.
You’ll find many hosting interfaces will register your domain name at the same time you sign up, so you only need to go to one place to get going with your domain and email.
