Free Email Templates | GoDaddy Pro

Just copy & paste

How many hours each week do you spend emailing clients? Once recent study from CNBC suggests the average worker commits more than five hours a day to tapping away at emails. That’s a lot of time you could get back — and at GoDaddy Pro, we’re all about taking back those hours. It’s why we’re creating a series of free email templates that web pros like designers and developers can use to save themselves serious time.

For many of us, our primary money-making skill doesn’t have much to do with writing. It’s about perfecting a .CSS stylesheet or editing images until (as clients are fond of saying) they have that “pop.” Ask us to handle those techie tasks and we’re all over it. But ask us to write a simple message, say, asking a client to send in content, and it’s a delete-and-repeat ordeal to finally get that email out the door.

Here’s the free email templates

We plan to create these free email templates that you can quickly copy and paste into a messages that address these common scenarios:

  • Getting Content
  • Your Site Was Hacked
  • Security Plan
  • Maintenance Plan
  • Checking In
  • Contract Renewals
  • Holding a Contest
  • Lead Outreach
  • Asking for Feedback
  • Onboarding Email
  • Screening Prospects
  • Apology

We’ll continue adding free email templates to this post as they’re created, so keep checking back to get the latest content.

GoDaddy Pro saves you serious time

It’s made possible by the Hub from GoDaddy Pro, a single-login interface where you can manage all your clients’ websites from one place. Right away, you can imagine how nice it would be to ditch the hassle of juggling all those FTP credentials.

How to Create Professional Invoice Templates for All Types of Businesses

Every legitimate business entity is mandated to issue an invoice and a receipt to their clients and customers. Whether it be through paper, Paypal or an online invoicing solution, that invoice serves as a record that documents the products and services purchased, the quantity acquired, the price of each item, as well as the date and time that the sale happened.

For site owners, bloggers, freelancers and brands, that invoice can also act as a receipt which serves as proof of payment for the items listed on the invoice.

With so many different payments and charges going back and forth, it’s important for a business to be able to issue a professional-looking invoice because this document is a reflection of their brand. Not only that, but it will make it easier for the consumer to see what the company is, and what service was provided. When all of these templates and invoices look the same, it’s easy to have all of your finances get mixed together and become a big mess.

To clean up and uncomplicate this process, we heavily recommend you build a better business and first impression for your brand, by investing in a custom template or design for all of your invoicing needs.

This can be easily achieved as there are already plenty of invoicing templates available online… many of which have the ability to update into your regular invoicing template or software solution.

With all of this in mind, here are some tips on how to create professional-looking invoice templates, regardless of the type of business entity.

Marketing Business

If your business is in line with marketing and advertisements, it will help if your invoice reflects your expertise in crafting effective strategies based on the latest trends in the market. Make sure to include in the invoice template the name of your business, as well as your company logo or brand. Also include both the seller and payer contact information in creating your template.

Consulting Business

Regardless of the consulting services you provide, your invoice template must allow you to personalize its content to include lines that describe in detail what your clients are being charged for. Keep in mind to include sufficient space in the body of the invoice for you to be able to specify your service details such as a specific description, your rate, the amount that your client is charged, as well as the subtotal. An elegant design will definitely reflect your exemplary services.

Legal Firm

While preparing an invoice is necessary for any business even for a legal firm, oftentimes there are more important tasks that need to be prioritized. This is why professional-looking templates will prove to be of an advantage because the invoicing process is optimized.

Just take a look at any of the top legal brands online and you will see that each of them has a unique and professional look to their sites. They probably have a custom logo design as well. All of these elements should also be included within your invoicing and master template files.

Also, ensure that your invoice includes the payment terms, as well as the due date, in order for your client to have ample time to prepare for your payment.

Freelance Business

Freelancers are often flexible, being experts at several skills. Apart from a polished invoice template, the main characteristic of a freelancer should be reflected in the invoice template they prepare. Thereby, it is important to include a space in your template where you can write specific notes for specific clients because for sure, no two clients will acquire the exact same services.

Stand Out from the Crowd with a Professional Template Design

To wrap things up, professional-looking invoice templates make the invoicing process more convenient especially to the administrators and personnel tasked to do the job. The same is true for all documents and notifications sent out from your company or brand. Once you’ve mastered this process with your invoicing and financials, be sure to scale it across all paper and electronic customer notifications you might be sending out.

As with everything associated with your business and brand, a professional-looking template also guarantees that the expertise of the company is reflected in the invoice, enabling the company to gain the confidence of their clients. The happier your customers are, the more likely they are to return for service once again.
