Smart Tips for Business Email Accounts

1/ Keep Control of Your Emails, Look Professional & be more SaleableEmail Marketing Tips

Its so basic! simply use your domain email address

Look Professional by Using Your Domain Email
When a business uses their domain emails like sales@yourdomain.com.au they appear more professional & at the same time hint their website site address. If you use a Bigpond, iinet, Optus, Gmail, Hotmail or similar (non your domain email) It is time to change and be more Professional and be in control of your emails & make your business more saleable.

By using your Domain Email eg sales@yourdomain.com.au ;
a/ You have control of your email accounts rather than using your ISP Internet Service Providers emails like Bigpond, Optus, iinet etc. So if you change ISP you won’t loose your business emails. So use your domain email, something like sales@yourdomain.com.au rather than mybiz@yourISP.com

b/ Your business will be more saleable, if you use your domain emails like sales@yourdomain.com.au, as you have full control.
The new owners of your business don’t have use your ISP service and won’t have all the dramas of transferring services. It also gives them the freedom to change the ISP for the business.

c/ All business email address that you have been using is what is in peoples address books, contact lists & online listings. Isn’t it better to be in control of your businesses emails, rather than be at the mercy of an ISP or third party you have no control over. Simply use your business domain emails.

  • POP emails – the emails (folders, reply emails etc) sit on Your Computer (device) you actually are downloading emails from the mail server. You can set up POP emails to keep emails on server for ‘so many days’ so you can collect POP emails on multiple computers (email programs)

A busy business owner’s guide to taming an out of control email inbox

Article by Monica Shepherd

Secretly, my ultimate goal is an empty inbox. I create folders and sub-folders and diligently file emails away as soon as possible, or delete anything I no longer need. The thought of my inbox growing massive in number kind of scares me – an irrational fear that if it grows beyond a certain amount, it’s too late to be saved, and I’d just have to give up and let it run wild. Some might call it OCD, I just like to call it ‘organised’.

Sorting through and dealing with emails can become a time-consuming and unproductive task. While ‘Inbox Zero’ may seem like an unattainable goal, a clean and manageable inbox is within everyone’s grasp. Here are my 10 tips for taming an out of control inbox:
