How Professional is Your Email Address?

Post by Accrete »

I have noticed a lot of professionals (sales people, business owners and general employees) do not use a business email address when handling business communications. They are using Gmail, Yahoo Mail, an address at MSN or other free email account.

While not everyone is technically inclined, you should ask someone to help you set up an email address at your business. It is not that hard even for a non techie. :)

When you see someone using a free email address as their business email address do you trust them?

It sorta makes me think 'fly by night'

There is really no excuse for it.

What most people don't seem to understand is that all you really need is a domain name and a hosted email account. You don't have to have a website or a hosting account.

Isn't a professional image worth 30 bucks a year?
