The use of le futur dans ce paragraphe

I'm curious about the use of the future tense throughout this paragraph. Was that a stylistic decision? In English, I can imagine the same paragraph using either present tense or even conditional tense. Would those tenses also be acceptable in French instead of future tense?

Hi Lorie,

Considering the context I get the impression that the writer is some sort of expert.

So perhaps using the conditional wouldn't carry the same sense of authority to the text?

This is why I think the future is used here.

Hope it helps.
