Business E-mail Domain Addresses, Email Messages & Professionalism
What is your
email address saying about your business?
By Nancy Johnson Copyright 2001
I see it all the time. Email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com, even when people have their own domains
they come up with firstname.lastname@example.org do these address tell
people your are a professional?
Even if you don't have your own domain you can still some up with
a email address that is your and is a bit more professional. Such
as MoreInfoebiz@aol.com or MoreInfoPlease@yahoo.com, play
around with it, what about email@example.com or
Customerinfo@something.com anything that says this is a business
address not my personal email and I am a newbie.
It is true that it is best to have your own domain and you can find
free and low cost hosting services that won't break your budget.
Then you can set up several email-boxes that you can sort prospects,
business associates, and company mail into.
But if you feel you must use AOL, Yahoo or other search engine email
than at least put forth a more professional attitude with your email
address. Because people will treat your business with more respect
if they think you are serious.
My best advice is get your own domain and set up a virtual busienss
center. I use a hosting service that is free and has no advertising
called vjungle.com. They have many services available to small busienss
