The humble email address – who would have thought it could have so much to say about your business!
Consider this. Which do you think gives a better first impression:
Gmail, hotmail, bigpond, iinet, westnet … it doesn’t matter, firstname.lastname@example.org tells people that you are not serious about your business. Remember – you only get one chance to make a first impression.
It’s so easy to have a professional email address these days so there really is no excuse. If you already have a website, then your web hosting package will come with a certain amount of email addresses. So if your website is www.yourbusinessname.com.au, you will be able to get email@example.com as an email address. You just need to speak to your web host.
If you don’t already have a website, the first thing you need to do is register the appropriate domain name. You can do this cheaply via any number of places on the web.
Then you need to get an email hosting package. Our hosting partner Swish Online does email hosting packages for as little as $100/year.
And that’s all. Your hosting provider will tell you how to set up your new professional email address. Too easy 🙂
