The popular belief has always been that you need a website before you can own a custom email address. And that maintaining a custom email address is quite expensive. This is stopping many small business owners from growing their businesses online.
The narrative is about to change as I am going to show you how to create a custom email address without having a website.
What is custom email address
A custom email address is the address that ends with your custom URL, e.g. as my blog URL is http://thegirlboss.com.ng, one of my custom email addresses could be email@example.com.
Why you need a custom email address
- A custom email address is more professional than an address ending with @yahoo.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
- You need it to send proposals to your prospects online. E.g. if you receive 2 different sales pitches from email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, which one would you give your attention? The mail from a custom email address, right?
- You need a custom email address to be able to send newsletters for email marketing. Some people are skeptical about starting a mailing list because they do not have websites.
- A custom email address is free marketing. Imagine if you attend an event where you have to register with your email address, there is more likelihood of someone checking out your website if you used a custom email address. So, anywhere you submit your email address, you have a chance of your website being checked out.
- You need a custom email address for security reasons and record purpose. Let’s assume you have a staff whom has been using her personal email address to communicate with your clients. If she resigns from her duty, there is every likelihood that you would lose email trails of all communication she had with clients on your company’s behalf. Also, it is possible for such ex-staff to keep in touch with your clients (at the detriment of your business) and you would not notice. If you used a custom email address, all you need do when a staff leaves, is to either change the email address of the mailbox or delete the account completely.
