3 Critical Reasons to Brand Your Business Email

Branding your business includes your website, logo, brochures, t-shirts and all of the fun things we order online. Have you ever considered that your email account is included as a portion of your brand. As a business owner, establishing your business brand is extremely important. Along with your business brand, decisions will need to be made with regards to the e-mail address you plan to use for your business. Some will refer to this as branding your business email account. Of course, before many business owners got started, they may have had their favorite email service provider such as Gmail, Yahoo, or AOL. However, when it comes to business, you’ll need to make a decision as to whether you want your e-mail to reflect your business or a third-party provider.

So I’ve included 3 Critical Reasons to BRAND your business email:

1. The importance of branding your business e-mail account will fall in line with the overall brand of your business.

So, when you send people e-mails from your business, you’ll want them to immediately identify the e-mail with the business in which it was sent from. Quite frankly, too many business owners make the mistake of not understanding that their e-mail address is just as important as the name of their business, their products, and the services they provide. With this in mind, your e-mail address will play a huge role in establishing credibility and rapport for your business.

2. When marketing your business, having a branded e-mail can sometimes make the difference between success and failure.

The reason for this is quite simple. When people receive an e-mail address from a specific type of business, they almost expect that e-mail to have a domain that reflects who that business is. Most of the time, when a person receives a message from someone identifying themselves as one thing, and your e-mail address is something else; they will more than likely delete that e-mail before even reading it. The other important factor you will need to consider is who you’re actually marketing. Are you marketing a third-party’s e-mail address, or are you marketing your own?

3. When it comes to small business owners, it’s even more important that you establish yourself from the onset.

This simply means that regardless of the name of your business, you will need to establish an online presence in that name. In addition, you’ll need to establish an e-mail address that utilizes that domain name. For instance, you don’t want an e-mail address that begins and ends with . However, instead, you’ll want an e-mail address that begins and ends with . This is extremely important when it comes to small business, and vitally important when it comes to big business anywhere.

The bottom line is, your e-mail address should be branded to your business. This will establish credibility and rapport among your current customers, as well as any future potential customers that you acquire down the road. A self-branded e-mail address will help people recognize who the business is, as well as who owns the e-mail address attached to the message they’ve received. So you’ll need to start using a self-branded e-mail address so you can begin promoting your own domain name. This will allow people to learn what your business name is, as well as providing them with a professional business image.
