A Message From The President

July 19, 2018                       Volume 6 No. 138
2018 NIRA Awards, Thank you all.

The 2018 edition of the .ng Awards that held on Friday 6th July 2018 has come and gone and it is my duty to thank everyone that contributed to the success of the Awards.

The night, which is the third edition of the .ng Awards was a blast, enjoyed by all. The ladies and gentlemen who graced the occasion were smartly adorned. It was a night filled with excitement and fun.

We are grateful to God and to everyone that contributed to the success of the night, especially those who actively participated by nominating their brand of choice, and subsequently voting to ensure they won.




A business email indicates that your business is established and registered with the relevant authorities. The organisational brand name can be your personal name or your business name. Depending on what whatever you choose as your brand name, you can always register a domain name to promote the brand on the internet. The branded email address does self-marketing for your business.
The level of internet penetration and online presence today has made it more important to have a branded email address for your business and brand. In this edition of the Tech Speak of the NiRA enewsletter, we share few reasons why you should use a custom email domain name for your brand communication.
