As your business grows and evolves, your business email marketing software needs will likely change, as well. If your current email platform isn’t serving the best interests of your company, it might be time to migrate to Zoho Mail.
However, email migration involves many moving parts. When improperly managed, you could risk service disruptions, data breaches, and reputation damage. No business can afford the dire consequences of a botched email migration. Let’s review tips for performing a seamless, successful email migration.
1. Practice makes perfect
Running a test migration is a great way to anticipate potential problems. Choose a few users from each of your departments for your trial migration. You’ll be able to assess any points of confusion in the entire migration process. In your test migration, you can enable dual delivery, so the emails will be received in your current and your new email services. This test migration is a good time to compare and contrast the features between the email services. After you’re satisfied with your choice of automated email marketing software, you can migrate your entire company.
2. Prepare your teams ahead of time
Getting your teams on board with your new Zoho Mail platform is crucial to its success at your business. Keep your employees informed during the migration process. Make sure that your teams are provided with their new login credentials in advance, along with a time frame for the migration. Communicate with your staff at each stage of the migration to hear their questions, comments, and concerns.
3. Strategize what to migrate
Moving to a new email service is a wonderful opportunity to establish new organizational habits. When you’re clearing out old data, involve the appropriate departments in the process. Including your teams will ensure that no valuable data is lost as you transfer to new business email marketing software.
4. Backup critical data
Keeping a backup of crucial and sensitive information will provide peace of mind during your migration. The Zoho email security protections are enterprise-grade. However, for information that cannot be lost under any circumstances, having a backup will help you sleep at night.
5. Avoid large-scale disruption
Plan your email migration for days with minimal utilization. With a clear perspective of the amount of data, you’ll be able to estimate the time needed to migrate to Zoho Mail. Schedule your migration to occur over a weekend or holiday to minimize any disruptions.
