Sorry about this, but we believe it's necessary. Here's why.

1. A matter of trust for your contacts

Sounds pretty straightforward when you think about it.

Business is run on business emails

When you get in touch with other people with business purposes,  it's a no-brainer to use your business email. Your contacts will likely trust you more when you do.

You'll use your business email as a reference at the end of your news releases. You'll use your business email when you send a campaign to your media contacts, to your investors and to your customers. Heck, you may even use it to send an email to your mother.

2. A matter of trust for email servers

You don't want only people to trust you, but email servers as well. Since it's easier for spammers to use personal addresses, email servers usually apply more severe rules to them.

For instance, using a Yahoo or a Gmail address to send an email to lots of recipients already rises a red flag.

This is why we're asking to use a business email to create an account on pr.co. Would you like to discuss this? Feel free to reach out at any time:
