If you have a small business, you need a professional-looking email account. That means having your domain name displayed and not something like gmail.com. In this video, Scott Friesen shows you the fastest way to get a custom business email address, domain name, and 1-page website so you can look your best online.
Do you run a business or are thinking of starting a business and your email address looks something like this? If so, keep watching. There is perhaps nothing more unprofessional than using a generic email address for your business, so why would you do that to your brand and your reputation? Well, one of the challenges in our way is that it can be complicated to search and buy a domain name and then connecting that with our email provider, and there's a good chance that you're either using Microsoft 365, or perhaps you're considering using Google Workspace, but you know what the problem is with these two providers? They're not designed for small businesses or entrepreneurs or solopreneurs, as a result, they make it very difficult for you to connect your new domain and even use your email in the long run. So, what if there was a simpler way? Well, there is, and it's called Neo, business email built especially for entrepreneurs and small business owners, and best of all, you can get started with your own custom domain name and your own fast, reliable inbox in just a matter of minutes. So let me show you how easy it is to get started with Neo. Here I am at Neo.space and I'm going to come up here and select get started. Now, if you already happen to have your own business domain name, you can still take advantage of the simplicity and speed of Neo, but in our case, we are going to start with a new domain name, so I'm going to select this option here and select get a new domain. And now all we need to do is search for something that is going to fit with our brand. I'm going to type in SimpleScott because that is going to be the name of my business. I'm going to select search and perfect, it is available SimpleScott.co.site and best of all, it is absolutely free for my first year, so I'm going to come here and select get this Domain. Next, it's time to create our account so I'm going to enter in my full name, my existing email address. This is going to be helpful so I can transfer over and even reply to existing emails from my current email address, and of course, create a password. Next, we need to finish creating our mailbox. We already have the domain name, but what's going to come in the front of our default email address? Well, I got to keep things nice and simple. It's just going to be my first name. We're reminded that this is going to be the default admin email address, but we can update and assign more admins later on. And then we'll need to set a password for this mailbox. Next, we can add additional mailboxes for members of our team, so if you have a staff or if you have other members of your business, here is where you can start to add them as well. I'm going to say done and continue to the next step and here's an additional bonus. Not only do we now have a professional email address, but we have this domain to use at our discretion, and Neo comes with a free one-page site. More on this later, but this is going to be an extremely helpful tool as you continue to build and grow your business. I'm going to hit continue and our final step is to choose if we want to go with the Business Starter Plan or the Business Plus Plan. And with setup now complete, we are brought into our Neo inbox where we can start to use our custom email address, but also start to work with email a lot smarter and a lot faster. So, for example, email tracking is built right into Neo. We don't have to install an additional extension. We don't have to enable something special. In fact, you can turn it on or off for any particular email. We also have templates, not only built right into the email, but they're up here upfront under the subject line. I think that makes so much more sense when I'm crafting a new message or a new email, and lastly, contact groups. Rather than trying to remember, "What did I name that contact group?" I can simply select from my list, here's my VIP coaching list, and it's automatically put into the recipient line. But wait, you're probably asking, "What happens to all of the emails I have been using, for example, in my Gmail account?" Well, the great thing is you can add accounts to Neo so you can continue to work seamlessly and reply and read all of your regular Gmail emails right here from within Neo. You'll notice just below my inbox, I have a Gmail address. This is my former gmail.com address, and I have all of my messages available to me here, so I can continue to read and review what's going on from this account. Last but not least, let's don't forget about that bonus site that we talked about earlier. Now, when you're first starting your business, you may be spending way too much time crafting that first website, or perhaps you've even been putting it off, but with Neo, we get our own custom one page website, which is attached to our custom domain name so we can easily share this with others and give them only the most relevant information they need. And don't worry, you can customize the layout and the look, upload your logo, give a brief description, and then include custom links. So in my example, maybe what I really want them to do is book a call with me, so here I have a link to my Calendly booking calendar, but then down below, if they're not ready to book a call, maybe what I want them to really do is to get in touch so they can send me a message here, a message which will go directly to my Neo inbox. And if I want to add some further details, I can always add additional links, maybe such as links to my social media profiles. All I need to do is hit save and publish and now this site is ready to go live. I can share this link with anyone. Finally, Neo's team is constantly launching new features and functionality. I had the chance to get a sneak preview of two new features, SmartWrite, an AI email generator that can write and reply to emails for you, and email marketing, which you can use to send out beautifully designed custom marketing emails to all your leads. So if you're tired of looking unprofessional with that generic email address and want to be able to manage your messages in a much faster and simpler environment, you can go to Neo.space or click the link in the description down below.
