Do you know that India is the second-largest online market in the world with over 560 million internet users? It means that your potential customers are online and searching for your products or services right now. If you have a small business and are looking for better opportunities, then this is the time to get a digital business card.

An electronic business card is a one-page website that helps you in getting in front of more people on Google search results. After all, this is how many people find products and services now — by typing their query into a search engine.

Your business can only be listed in the search results if it is on the internet.

If you are worried about the hefty cost associated with developing a website or the confusing technical jargon that confuses you, then GoDaddy Online Starter Bundle is for you. It’s as simple as 1-2-3 and takes your business online in less than 10 minutes.

What you can do with GoDaddy’s electronic business card

A digital business card is like an office receptionist working for your business all the time. Through it, anyone from across the world can check your official working hours of working, learn about your products or services, get directions to your shop address, and do much more.

Let us look at what comes with the Online Starter Bundle.

1. Claim your business identity online

A domain name is the unique business address of your website on the internet.

BigBasket.com and IRCTC.co.in are examples of well-known domain names.

Just like a house address, a domain name is a virtual address where your website lives on the internet.

A domain name helps your customers find your business online. And like your home address, it has to be unique. No two businesses can share the same domain name.

When you sign up with Online Starter Bundle, GoDaddy gives you an option to choose the domain name of your choice, providing it ends with .in or .co.in. These domain extensions are specific to India and let your customers know that your business is based in India.

How to choose a good domain name

The key here is the shorter, the better. Your domain name should be:

  • Easy to spell so that your customer can remember and type it in the address bar
  • Made up of letters only — no dashes or numerals, as these are hard for people to remember

You might want to add a keyword related to your business to your domain, as this helps in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

You can register a domain name in any language, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Marathi.

You can use a domain name generation tool like GoDaddy’s to look for available domain names with your keywords.

2. Win their trust with a professional email address

You might be using Gmail or Yahoo accounts to send emails. Think about this: will you trust an email from a sender like sandhya22@gmail.com, selling email marketing services? No, right?

A professional email that matches your domain, like sandhya@greatmarketing.com will look more authentic and trustworthy. It shows seriousness and creates a positive first impression and, therefore, gets you more replies.

With GoDaddy Online Starter Bundle, you get an email account with:

  • Your domain name in it
  • 10GB of email storage
  • Security and anti-spam filter

Your new email ID works on your phone and desktop and syncs across your devices.

3. Get a digital business card that’s mobile-friendly

Google’s Year in Search-India report says that more and more people are making a variety of queries from all parts of the country.

That simply means if you have a business, people are looking for you online.

The question is are you searchable?

You don’t need to have a bulky website with hundreds of web pages. Your website is your electronic business card, and even a one-page website can get the job done.

Set up in just a few clicks, and within minutes your new digital business card can include:

  • Your business details, including information about your products or services
  • A Contact Us button that leads to your WhatsApp
  • A Google Map with your business location and a clickable link to directions
  • An invitation to share their email address with you for later follow up
  • Reviews from current customers

4. Get help whenever you need it

Although creating a website with the online bundle is a child’s play, you can get fast, friendly help from GoDaddy Guides based in India.

Along with English, the support is available in local languages like:

  • Hindi
  • Telugu
  • Tamil
  • Marathi

You can also message them on WhatsApp at +44 20 70237958 any time.
