If you are in business on the internet, you likely have a domain name for your business, and a website or blog as well. That’s great!
But are you still using a generic email address for your business-related email? Do your business cards give an email such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com?
If so, it’s time to create your own domain-specific email account.
Using an email that includes your business URL will help to brand your business, and lets the world know that you have a real business. That you are serious about what you offer.
And it helps people to feel comfortable doing business with you.
It’s easy to create any number of domain-specific email accounts. You can have one with your name @ your URL. And another specifically for questions or customer support.
And you can forward them to your regular email account if you prefer. That way you will never miss a business-related email.
Here’s a quick video showing you how to create your own business email address within your business domain. While the video shows how to do this using a HostGator webhosting account, the process should be pretty similar with any webhost that provides cPanel support.
