Importance of Having a Personalized Email Account

Your professionalism is in question in every day as you do business. One way to quiet some of the questions is by setting your personalized email to reflect your business. Having your name on your web address supported by your business shows your customer that you are ready to do business and treat them with respect as a customer.

There are several reasons for the importance of having a personalized email address when compared to other methods of communication.

BENEFITS OF HAVING PERSONALIZED EMAIL

BRAND AND RECOGNITION

If your branding is something that’s important to you, it’s important to protect it. Publishing your brand name by using it as your personalized domain name means not only investing in protecting your brand but also in building your brand recognition.  If you have the name of your company as the basis of your email address you immediately add the brand recognition to your email address and all of the status that goes with it. If someone sees your brand enough times, they will start to go to you for their needs.

HAVE EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR MULTIPLE DEPARTMENTS

Save time and hassle by helping people contact the right person in your company for their specific requirements, e.g.
Admin / General inquiries – info@your-company.co.za
Accounts department – accounts@your-company.co.za
Your staff – name@your-company.co.za

Getting a personalized domain name is an important step, and a significant investment. Once you’ve finally chosen that all-important domain name, you can continue to renew it for as long as you need. Wherever you go, people can always contact you at the same email address!

QUICK AND EFFECTIVE

When companies need to get important messages to clients or business associates who are located thousands of kilometers away, one of the quickest ways to do it is by email.

The advantage email has over the telephone in communication speed is that you can send attachments with an email that encloses important documents or even a presentation to shed light on your message.

In addition, the continuous flow of relevant information makes employees and executives alike more efficient and productive, enabling quick responses to any issue that may arise.

RECORD KEEPING

Email messages remain in the user’s inbox except if purposely erased, and both stand-alone email software and webmail services offer a search function and filters that make tracking down a specific message only a matter of seconds.

This creates a virtual paper trail that is far more efficient than printed documents filed away in a drawer, making it extremely easy to extract important information from email communication.

LOW COSTS

Email is one of the inexpensive means a business can use to communicate with customers and potential customers. The cost difference is especially striking when considering mass communication. For example, the cost of printing and delivering a set of marketing fliers or letter may be more time consuming than required, instead of sending the information via email.

MARKETING

Email allows companies to efficiently and effectively spread information about their products and services, both to existing customers and potential ones. For example, a clothing company could set up an email list to which anybody can subscribe, and then send weekly emails to everybody on the list detailing new additions to the catalog.

  • REPAYMENT PLAN

    How does the repayment plan work?

    Upon acceptance of the quotation, we require a 50% deposit payment before the start of the project. The balance or outstanding amount has to be paid after we have completed the project.

    With the repayment plan, you are able to repay us the balance or outstanding amount over 3 months. However, failure to make payments will result in immediate suspension of your account.

  • WEBSITE HOSTING

    What is Web Hosting?

    When you design a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

    Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.advertisingsolutions.co.za), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.

  • DOMAIN NAME

    What is a Domain Name?

    A domain name (www.yourcompanyname.co.za) is essentially your company’s Internet address; the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices, a domain name is used to find your website. Consider this: Pick a domain name that’s memorable and relevant!

    Please note: Domain pricing depends on the extension, see pricing here: https://advertisingsolutions.co.za/domains/

  • NUMBER OF STOCK PHOTOS

    Stock photos are professionally taken photographs that we can buy online to use commercially, without having to stress over copy-right issues. It can be used to enhance your website or in marketing material.

    Stock photos can save you quite a bit of time and money, as you do not have to hire a photographer just to have some quality images for your website. While stock images cover a broad range of applications, it can be difficult to acquire pictures for a certain niche, or a specific product.

  • NUMBER OF SLIDES

    What is a slider?

    A banner slider is comprised of images and text on multiple slides, allowing you to rotate content on a single space on your website. It’s most commonly the first thing you see (apart from the logo and menu) on a website’s home page. The purpose of the slider is to catch the attention of the viewer while being visually appealing and easy to read. It can be used to display selected information, such as promotions or highlighting specific products or services, and can also be used to easily navigate your site.

    How many should I use?

    This is dependable on the amount of content you have on your website. Small websites that do not have much information 1-2 sliders will be enough. Websites with more pages and content to market will require more sliders to make the navigation of the site easily digestible for the viewer, while promoting certain products or content. We do not recommend more than 5 slides, as we find that most viewers spend a few minutes on your home page before moving on to another page and won’t view more than 5 slides.

  • WEBSITE TYPE

    Standard/Brochure Website Design

    This design is for the general purpose of getting your company’s information out on the internet and reaching potential customers.

    Standard/Brochure websites include the following features: Basic Contact Form, Google Map, Social Media Integration, Image Gallery, Embedding YouTube Videos, Pricing Tables, FAQ Toggle Elements and Testimonial Sliders. This does not include an online store/eCommerce, online directories/listing sites or custom development.

    As we use WordPress, you will also have the option of logging in to your website and doing some small changes yourself if you choose.

    Online Store/eCommerce

    This design option is for selling your products online, as well as having your information online and reaching potential customers. This includes payment gateway integration such as Payfast and EFT and also includes up to 50 individual products. If you have more products you can simply load them in yourself by logging into the backend of your website, where you can also manage your inventory and take stock. If you have a large selection and would prefer us to do it, we can assist you with loading all your products for an additional fee.

  • NUMBER OF PAGES

    Most websites are comprised of 4 pages, eg: Home, About, Services/Products and Contact.

    Your Home page welcomes the viewer, with a general summary of your company and what you have to offer. It also helps the viewer easily navigate your site. Your About page may list company history, your mission and vision, team members, company values or any information regarding your company.

    Your Products or Services page is where you expand on the products or services you have. Your Contact page lists all your contact details, such as your physical address, contact number and email address. It is also good to have an enquiry form so potential clients can easily get in contact with you.

    These are just the most common pages used, the amount of pages will depend on the amount of information you have.
