Get the right email address for your business! Once you have a domain name for your business, put it to work and ensure you are using a domain email address too. This helps create a unified, professional approach to your communication and brand that can make a difference when you’re operating in a competitive business environment. By rolling this out across your devices, you are able to communicate in a much more fluid way – with a consistent experience being created by every interaction.
We help our clients configure their email addresses as well as set up their devices to send and receive branded business emails.
The Domain Email Advantage
Using a domain email is advantageous for some key reasons. But first, let’s clarify – what is a domain email?
Which email address is more professional?
In this example, the domain email address is “firstname.lastname@example.org”. It is using the same domain name as the website. Using a non-domain email address for your business does not create the same unified, organised impression. Furthermore, information that is handled by a third party is also subject to their own security and policy guidelines – neither of which may be appropriate for your own requirements or those of your clients.
When we set up our new business clients, we work with them to determine the best domain name for their business and then to ensure the option to use this domain name as an email address is explained and understood.
Devices and Email Addresses
Setting up your work devices (computers, iPads, iPhones, etc) to send and receive email (and other business functions) is something we’re always helping our clients with. Its an important consideration – after all, there’s no point using the device for business if it isn’t aligned with the remainder of your communication infrastructure. Recipients of your communication shouldn’t get a different experience just because you’re using a different device – so it’s important to ensure your devices are properly set up for sending and receiving email.
Emails are an opportunity to reinforce your branding – every email is like handing out a business card. Emails can be forwarded along, so the power of presentation can extend beyond the intended recipient. So the brand-messaging on your emails needs to be under control. Even a succinct message which includes your contact details is very useful. Ensure your email signature is set up to make the most of this opportunity.
