You may be asking yourself, what is a professional email account and what does it have to do with trust? This article will attempt to answer these two questions for the sake your business.
GoDaddy recently performed a survey to capture the results in the infographic below. As a buyer and entrepreneur, they were not very surprising to me. The infographic details the importance of having a professional email account.
As you can see from this survey, even more than social media presence, buyers care about a professional email address.
A professional email address is an email that is hosted with your website domain. If you have a website, say www.happydeals.com. You can then have an email as “[email protected]” vs “[email protected]”. Think about how your customer would feel ordering from someone who has a yahoo.com email address.
Building trust with a professional email account
Building trust is a crucial part of running a business and making sales. The sales process is all about getting to know the people who are buying from you. You would buy a big pile of garbage from your best friend before you would buy a nice car from a stranger.
Here is my attempt to make you a friend. Although, I am not going to sell you a pile of garbage! I am offering a service through Fiverr that will provide you with your very own professional email address. I set up email within several major platforms: G Suite, Office 365 and Zoho Mail. I will even set up marketing with MailChimp.
Thank you for reading and learning about professional email services, I hope you think hard about starting your own professional email account!
