Professionalism is a very important aspect of business, and is an area where there will always be room for improvement. One easy way to increase professionalism and company exposure is to use your company URL as your domain name in your email address. Here are a couple of examples:
firstname.lastname@example.org, instead of email@example.com
Joebrown@cracksrus.com, instead of Joebrown@hotmail.com
By using your company name in your email address, you are advertising your own business rather than your email provider’s business. If you have a website, you already have a domain name. Adding a domain to your email address is very easy, and best of all, it is free!
Many website hosting companies such as Go Daddy provide free or very inexpensive personalized email options, but a very popular and extremely easy to setup option is available through Google Apps which can be used regardless of where your website is hosted. Google Apps is free for up to 50 users and offers email hosting with Gmail, an online calendar, office solutions, and Google sites for creating websites.
If you don’t already have a website you can still register a domain name for as little as $0.99 a year from registrars like Network Solutions or for as little as $8.00 a year you can register your domain name and have it hosted through one of Google’s partners. For more information about this one stop option click on Register a New Domain.
Regardless of the method you choose, the bottom line is that for less than $1.00 per month you can give your businesses a more professional and legitimate look. In addition to being more professional, having an email address associated with your web domain address makes it easier for clients to remember you and contact you. It is easier to remember firstname.lastname@example.org than email@example.com because his name is associated with his business name. Look at any large, successful corporation, and you will see that they use these kinds of techniques to set themselves apart as professionals in their industry. A simple way to be successful in business is to be professional; when you are successful, we are successful!
