What your e-mail address says about you

posted in: Internet | 0

Have you thought about what your e-mail address says about you? If you e-mail customers it is important. If you use e-mail to prospect for new customers it is critical!

If your e-mail address is your-name@your-company.ca, I assume that you are a real person at a real, established company that has taken the time to register a domain name and build a web site. If I don’t know you, I might take a few minutes to check out www.your-company.ca to learn about you, and I will certainly reply to your e-mail.

If your e-mail address is something like company-name@rogers.ca, or company-name@bell.ca I assume that you are a real person, since you have a real internet account with an internet service provider that I have heard of. I will probably read your e-mail, and will probably reply.

If your e-mail address is your-name@gmail.com or your-company@gmail.com I will probably assume that your e-mail is spam. You probably won’t be hearing back from me!

So if you don’t have a registered domain name, and you don’t use it for your company e-mail, what is holding you back. It is not very expensive, and nothing does a better job of saying “legitimate e-mail from legitimate company”.
