Plan to be Great! Look Serious
You may be a Mom and Pop shop, a Startup, or a Solopreneur just getting going; either way you need to look like you're serious. Using your own email account domain name is the way you show your face to the world EVERY DAY. Show your best face with your own branded email!
Avoid the Pitfalls of Freebie Services
Free email services are great – for personal use. But no one is accountable to you when something goes wrong. You can't run a business like that.
Your Communication is your Brand
They will assume you're an amateur if you're not using your own properly branded email account. How many times have you deleted a sales email the moment you saw that it came from a generic freebie service? You should never let your brand be seen that way and yet so many businesses put themselves in this situation by using generic email accounts. Your branded email is the most affordable and effective way to ensure that your brand is put out there every time you send a message. It can't get simpler than that.
