… got an email from a new client.
It came from gmail: email@example.com.
Even though she owns the URL of her business name (www.herbusiness.com), she’s using gmail.
I suggested she stop doing that and instead use firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using a gmail address – or Hotmail or Yahoo or Outlook – screams “I’m an amateur. I’m not in this for real.”
If you have a web site domain, you have email addresses along with it. Use those in all your business-related communications!
