Nothing undermines your professionalism more than using one of the many free email services available today.
Being in business is hard enough. On a daily basis we are faced with numerous challenges that keep us awake at night as we struggle to take our business to the next level and yet we penalize ourselves by not taking care of some of the simple no brainer activities.
Domain named email is nothing more than having a company based email address instead of joesmith@gmail or @yahoo you have firstname.lastname@example.org
Registering a domain is a simple process handled online and many of these same organizations also offer email for a few dollars a month. If you already have a website, you most likely have domain named email included in your hosting fees and you only need to activate it.
It may not seem important but it is one of the first things your prospective customer sees and having a free email account telegraphs amateur hour and that you’re not serious about your business.
Having a named based domain removes one more obstacle for people to do business with you.
