 Business Email Address is a Must
This will be a short post, because the title says it all, Busi­ness email address is a Must. I still see so many busi­ness own­ers and even employ­ees using per­son­al email accounts to email and engage with cus­tomers. Myname@​gmail.​com was accept­able back in the 1990s when many of us did­n’t know you could have a busi­ness email. Today, all busi­ness own­ers should con­sid­er get­ting com­pa­ny emails: yourname@​companyname.​com. It is mind bog­gling just how easy this is to do today. You can sign up for Google Apps, which is free and get up to 50 com­pa­ny emails. Oth­er­wise, talk to your IT com­pa­ny and tell them to hook you up! It is either free or inex­pen­sive, and chances are, your email or web­site provider (i.e. GoDad­dy or Web Host­ing Com­pa­ny) already offers you that option. It is more pro­fes­sion­al to engage with con­sumers with a com­pa­ny email and keep per­son­al things per­son­al. Also it is a great way to brand your busi­ness. I use my busi­ness email for a lot of per­son­al con­tact as well, because if some­one is tech-savvy enough, they’ll look up my email domain: adavid​cre​ation​.com and find my web­site and what I do for a liv­ing. This sum­mer, make the switch. Using a busi­ness email address today!
