Your website and email are fairly obvious touchpoints for a person to engage with your business. So it makes sense that both your domain name and email address need to look professional and reinforce your brand. Yet, for some reason, millions of businesses are still using a Gmail or Yahoo address for their company’s email. As a small business owner, you want to make sure that you make a professional first impression and improve your chances of connecting with customers.
While the process of getting a custom domain name for your website is pretty straightforward, there’s more to consider when it comes to your email address.
The most common way to get a firstname.lastname@example.org is to use the email service offered by the company you registered your domain with or purchased shared hosting space from. But, if you go that route, forget about things like a calendar and read receipts, and be prepared for intermittent outages and a deluge of spam.
For a better email experience, most of these companies also resell Office 365 or G Suite. But paying for an entire product suite just to get quality email seems a little ridiculous.
