Something big is going on in Google land. If you’re emailing your peeps using a @gmail.com “From Address” (like yourblog@gmail.com) through Mailchimp, Active Campagin or any other email service provider – you’ve got a MASSIVE problem but it’s easy to fix. Let me explain:

 

Gmail updated it’s Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) policy.

What’s DMARC?

DMARC allows domains to tell mail servers to reject messages using that domain in the “From address”, if the message did not originate from that domain’s own mail server.  In plain English: Email service providers can’t send “from” GMail addresses anymore(Yahoo! & AOL.com already have the same policy).

info@mynewzenlife.com = Good      mynewzenlife@gmail.com = Bad

***Note: If you use Google for Work with a private domain email address (like kate@katedoster.com you WILL NOT be effected *** 

What does that mean for you?

  • You MUST create a  “From” address from your private domain: like info@yourcompany.com  or kate@katedoster.com ASAP! (See instructions below)
  •  Check Autoresponders – Update the “From” field if needed
  • Check the all “Sender” addresses on confirmation forms, broadcast emails, etc.

 Gmail bans email service providers like Mailchimp from using @gmail.com "From" address anymore

3 reasons why this is good thing…

 Using @gmail.com email address for your business is:

  1. Unprofessional
  2. Shows you have no confidence in your business idea – If you know this business is going to success you’d buy a private domain and set up a proper email address
  3. Gets you more comfortable with tech part of your business

How to create a private domain email address:

Setting up a private (or customize) domain email address is super easy.

How to Make Money from Your Email List Without Feeling Like a Rotten Spammer Face

Even if you don’t have anything for sale yet, you are selling your people on the fact that you’re awesome, that you are worth being in their inbox, you know what you’re talking about and … you’re going to sell the fact that you genuinely care about your people.
