Why should you have a custom email address?
Customers and other business owners are reluctant to trust emails that are coming from a generic email account. Using a custom email address for communication adds extra value and credibility to your business.
Difference between generic vs custom email address
An email made using services such as Google, Yahoo and Outlook. (Examples: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com)
An email made using a specific or a custom domain name that is by us or our business (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org)
