The visual impact of military, medical and public safety uniforms helps in immediate identification of individuals with respect to their profession. Just like uniforms indicate a sense of professionalism, similarly, email id that uses your domain name gives your business a professional touch- a serious recognition and you appear to people as they perceive you to be.72% people prefer to receive promotional content through email, compared to 17% who prefer social media – MarketingSherpa
Acting like a professional really means doing what it takes to make others think of you as reliable, respectful, and competent.
