Professional Email Addresses are a Must

Tags : 

Email_IconProfessional email addresses are a must in today’s networking and business world.

When choosing a company to handle my business I, like most people, want to be sure that they are able to handle the business I send their way. I look at their website. I check out any social media accounts associated with them. I look at their LinkedIn business profile. I pull up the contact info to call or email them the specs associated with the work.

This is where it gets hinky.

If I see a professional organization represented on my screen, I expect to see professional email address with a personalized domain. If a business is using a gmail account I wonder if it’s a guy in his garage or, worse, his mother’s basement. Don’t get me started with yahoo or aol accounts – and yes – they do exist.

Google is a wonder for small businesses. If you own your domain {meaning you have your own .com} you can turn your generic gmail account into a custom account with your domain in the address. It’s so cheap it might as well be free and it takes about 5 minutes of your time. Why be BobSmithDesigns@gmail.com when you could be Bob@SmithDesigns.com? Custom email addresses finish the idea that your company is legit and ready to handle all the business coming its way.
