Domain-Based Business Email
1 Minute Marketing Tips #3 – Domain-Based Business Email. Since I covered Email Signatures in the last video, today it makes sense to talk about business email accounts. 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 definitely want to pay attention.
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 image and they want me to trust them with mine?! 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 customers; get yourself a Domain-Based Business Email address. There really is no excuse NOT to have one since they are so cheap and easy to set up!
Creating Domain-Based Business Email
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. But 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.
