As the name suggests, an IP address is an Internet Protocol address, which is used to identify your computer on the Internet. At a minimum, you need one IP address to identify yourself online. However, if you have more than one computer, then you need an additional IP address for each one. In most cases, you will need a dynamic IP address, which is assigned to you by your Internet service provider whenever you connect to the Internet. To keep your personal data secure, you should use a VPN to encrypt your Internet traffic.
So, how many IPs do you need for email marketing? The right answer depends on a variety of factors, including how many separate email accounts you have, how much traffic you expect to receive, and whether you use a free email service or a paid service.
How Many Email Accounts Do You Need?
If you have one email account for personal use, then you can use that to send and receive correspondence. However, if you use multiple email accounts for different purposes (e.g., work-related emails), then you need to consider how many IPs you need for each one.
To keep your correspondence separate from your professional life, you should use a dedicated email account for work-related emails. Alternatively, you can use your personal email account for work-related emails, but you should ensure that you never send sensitive material from this account.
How To Easily Set Up Email Accounts?
Thankfully, setting up email accounts is quite easy. All you need is a Gmail account and a phone number. Once you have the two, you can create as many email accounts as you want.
To set up a new email account, click the logo in the upper-right corner of your screen. This will take you to your Gmail dashboard. From here, click on the Settings button in the top right corner of the screen.
You will see that your Gmail settings have changed. In the left-hand column, you will see a list of all your mailboxes. To create a new email account, click on the New Mailbox button. You will be asked to enter a name for your new box and a password.
Once you have entered these details, you can click the Create Mailbox button to create your new email account.
Free Email Accounts Vs. Paid Email Accounts
If you are looking for a free email provider, then you should check out the various services offered by Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft.
As the name suggests, Gmail is a free email service from Google. You can use this service to create as many email accounts as you want. Each account will be named after your Gmail address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). You can use the @gmail.com format to easily email users who have signed up for your mailing list. Your email will look like this:
Subject: Hello! You have a new email (email@example.com) (Gmail) (https://mail.google.com) (account) (1234)
Traffic Vs. Engagement
Think of email marketing as a conversation. You are having a conversation with someone who has signed up to hear from you. To start the conversation, you will need to ask permission to send them an email. After they have given permission, you can begin to talk.
As a rule of thumb, the more traffic you have, the more email accounts you will need. However, you should not just go for the easy route and set up as many email accounts as you can. If you want your email to be memorable, then you should engage with your subscribers by sending them articles, promoting events, or sharing useful tips.
For example, let’s say you are a real estate professional. You may not always want to share tips on how to buy real estate property, but you might want to suggest an upcoming event or share an article about a newly renovated house that just went on sale.
By engaging with your contacts through email, you let them know you are interested in what they have to say. This establishes trust and makes them feel that you are a legitimate source for useful information that they may appreciate.
If you are just getting started, then you should opt for a free service from Google, Yahoo!, or Microsoft. These services offer you a great platform to build your email marketing campaign. As you grow your business, you can then move to a paid service and avoid any limitations.
Always try to keep your correspondence separate from your professional life. You can use a dedicated email account for work-related emails, but you should ensure that you never send sensitive material from this account. If you have one Gmail account, you can quickly and easily set up email accounts for all your other devices. As long as you have a Gmail account, all you need is a phone number to create multiple email accounts.
