If your email address looks unprofessional, you are losing customers. You will be clueless, because they will not have contacted you!Why your email address may be driving away customers
A lot of small businesses opt to keep their old, personal, generic email address e.g., email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second one, right? It all hinges on trust. The personal email address smacks of amateurism, which will lead potential customers to start second-guessing: Is this business legitimate? Can I trust them to deliver??
On the other hand, the address with a business domain conveys professionalism, reassuring a potential customer that this is an honest, established business they can rely on.Google surveyed businesses that started out life with a personal email address, then switched to an address with a business domain later on. 60% of these businesses reported an increase in customer engagement and 42% reported an increase in sales as a result. That’s a massive result for something as seemingly minor as changing the words after the “@” symbol. But that’s because, it’s not minor—the domain instills trust.
