Free Email Isn’t Really Free
When something is offered free, we don’t bother about its hidden costs. Almost half of the world uses free email services such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Hotmail. This is fine for personal use, but if you are using free email for your business, you may be paying a heavy price without realizing it. If you put any value on your company’s reputation, productivity, or security; then you should look seriously at business email hosting options from Apps4Rent, starting at just 50 cents per mailbox per month.
Hidden Costs of Free Email Services
Reputation and Branding
When a prospective client receives a business email from a generic email address, the impression that is created about your company is not favorable. He may think that yours is a fly-by-night operation or a side business, or it is a new business with a short history of operation. Then there are practical reasons for having a unique email address that comes with paid e-mail services. It is easier to remember and find among the multitude of emails in the inbox. Your email on your domain name conveys your company’s brand, and receivers often check out your website. Generic email addresses may also get filtered out by spam filters and end up in junk folders. Think of how much business you may have lost by using a free email address! It is time to change that.
Privacy and Security
The biggest downfall of using free email services is the loss of privacy and security. With free email services, the control of your profile data and email privacy and security is not in our hands. Free email hosting providers typically collect data on your email activities and may be sharing the data with advertisers or tailoring ads and spam emails targeting your company’s email users. Have you ever noticed the distracting ads that appear in your free email hosting account? Think of the time your employees may be wasting by these distractions! And time is money.
Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Filtering
Free email services do offer anti-spam, anti-virus features; however, these are not as sophisticated as those included in Apps4Rent’s paid email hosting. There is also a conflict of interest because free email providers themselves may be working with email marketing companies to direct their client’s emails to your mailbox.
The biggest downfall of any free service is the rudimentary customer support service. In paid services like those offered by Apps4Rent, you have 24/7 customer support by phone, email, and chat. You don’t have to waste time hunting over message boards or website documentation to get answers to questions about any feature. Just ask us and save your valuable time. You will recover the price you pay for email hosting many times over!
