When you hand a business card to a new contact during a networking function, they will immediately look for your email address. Your email address should be yourname@company_domain.com. You need to keep it simple and relevant so it will be remembered and easily recalled. Having an email account such as Yahoo.com may raise questions about your operation. Additionally, those who use AOL for their emails may miss many inquiries as AOL’s server has many spam filters and blacklists in place that may be blocking your potential clients’ domains.
You don’t have to have a mail program on your computer to use your domain name for email. eMarketSouth can help you with a web-based interface so you may access your email from anywhere. If you prefer to work with Outlook, Thunderbird or related programs, we offer simple set up instructions for using your new email account.
Whatever option you choose, remember your email address is your calling card. It’s how people remember you, and how they find you when they want something. And ultimately, isn’t that what you want for your business?
