Domain-Based Business Email – 1 Minute Marketing Tips #3. Since I covered Email Signatures in the last video, today it makes sense to talk about having or getting a business email account. But I’m not talking about the typical method of adding you business name to a Yahoo or Gmail account. So unless you want to look like you’re cheap or an amateur, you’ll definitely want to pay attention.
AOL = LOL
Look, if you are anything like me, you get bombarded by emails every single day. Our agency website is no different, every day we get a handful of messages from “professionals” with Yahoo email accounts. So if I don’t see Yahoo, it’s Gmail or AOL – I mean who the hell even uses AOL anymore?
But I think that may be a topic for another day…
Anyway, I feel the worst part is that they want my money for services like web design or marketing. Are you kidding me? They don’t care enough about their own public image and they want me to trust them with mine?!
Honestly, I’m thinking of something that rhymes with “Oh hell no!” So don’t you make the same mistake when you are communicating with your potential customers. Get yourself a Domain-Based Business Email address. Since there really is no excuse to NOT to have one in 2018. They are so cheap to get and very easy to set up!
Make it happen, captain!
So here’s the scoop; most website hosting providers allow you to have at least one domain-based email. If not, you can always changes web hosts or just get yourself one through GoDaddy, etc. I think it’s like $4 or $5 per month, so there are no excuses on this one. Since it literally takes just a few seconds to set up a business email account, what are you waiting for?
Seriously, the actual creation of a domain-based email account is pretty simple and easy to do. However, if you’re not technically savvy just pay someone to set it up for you. Get it done!
