Could Your Email Address Cost You Business?

Come on, you can’t be serious right? Email is not that important.

Look, I get it. As an entrepreneur or small business owner you have way more important things you need to be focused on. The email address just doesn’t seem that important in the grand scheme of things. I get it.

But seeing [email protected] on a business card, in the yellow pages and on official business collateral is something that has irked me for a long time.

Mainly because I know how simple it is to get your own professional email!

Your customers are subtly or subconsciously Judging you…

I wanted to find out if I was the only one. Maybe it was not a big deal and I was just being particular about nothing. So I decided to ask the question on HeadKnowles (Bahamas FB Supergroup with over 22K users)

Whether you like it or not, your choice of email address is being judged. The more established the business is the more likely it seems people will look down on you based on your email address.

To be sure, I don’t think people will stop doing business with you, but it’s one small thing that can add to a bad perception of your brand.

So lets fix that today.

Step by Step process to get your professional email

Here, I’m going to show you how to create a new email address, like [email protected], and integrate it with your Gmail account.

This way, you can easily send and receive emails through the Gmail interface, but your customer will see the emails as coming from your domain email address.

The steps have been broken in two parts. First we’ll see how to create the domain email address. Second, we’ll integrate that domain email with your Gmail account.

1. Create the domain name email address

2. Create your mailbox and forward to your existing Gmail account

Note: You can manage your professional email address from this separate account if you want. But if you want to sync to your phone you will have to purchase one the pro-packages rather than the starter package indicated in the video above.

3. Set up A Label For Your Emails In Gmail Inbox

Step 1- Create new label

Click Create new label
Enter the email address created in previous steps

Step 2 – Send a test email to your new address and see if the label is automatically applied. It should look like this

That’s it. If you have any problems simply do a quick google search and you will get the answer.

But I hope you now realize how easy it is to get your very own professional email address and how it could impact how people view your business.
