Your Own Business Email Address Looks Better!
Email, it is always with us and continues to be the most widely used method of communicating online. One thing which separates the serious business from the amateur is having your own business identity. In every town there are still thousands of businesses who continue to have Billsplumbing@gmail.com type email as their branding, it is not a good look and it can be remedied very easily to : Bill@billsplumbing.com which looks a lot better, and generates a professional image.
The big perk of owning your own domain is being able to create your own business email addresses. You can do this quickly and easily from your hosting account using ‘Cpanel’ – most hosting companies provide Cpanel these days, or an interface very similar to it.
Having your own email identity is especially useful for working from home type businesses, freelancing, consulting…in fact any kind of entity.
This short video goes through the steps of creating your domain email address, and then using the technical information from that address to ‘pipe’ your domain email through your Gmail account. The big advantage in doing this is that you can manage all your business email from the one account, in a familiar setting.
Of course you can also use any email client you prefer using the same information, but most people tend to prefer using their Gmail account, you can ‘Send As’ the domain email and the process is completely transparent to your recipients – it just looks like you are sending your email from a business location 😉
This is one of those details which contributes to your online and business identity, which is very important when establishing yourself as a freelancer, or indeed any kind of business entity online, or off.
