Occasionally I’ll come in contact with someone in the cyber world who absolutely shocks me. OK, "occasionally" is putting it lightly. If I send an email asking about the details of a professional event and CutieGirl152 writes me back, you can probably guess I won’t be attending. If your email address hasn’t changed since 1992, we need to talk.
Do you realize what your email address saying about you, your company, or your organization? If “GaGa4Poodles” is what you’re going for … well, I don’t know exactly how to respond to that.
There are a million reasons to add a professional email address. Here are a few: (And I’m talking to you MuscleMan342!)
To look professional.
You want your customers to take you seriously. You have a grown up business, you need a grown up email.
To access your email anywhere, anytime.
Convenient, easy, accessible. You can’t get much better than that.
To correlate with your business.
If your company is Super Savvy Suitcases, get a Super Savvy Suitcases email address. Your customers will know it’s you instead of just deleting your message from an address that they don’t recognize.
Protect against viruses & spam.
Who knows what kind of viruses you’ve got attached to your address from the stone age.
