Is Your Email Address Professional?
I see a lot of businesses who don’t use their domain name in their email address. For example their domain name is xyzlandscaping.com.au, but their email address is email@example.com. Now this may be okay for a one man business, but what about businesses with multiple employees or departments?
It is easy to setup multiple email addresses under the same domain name. For example:
In my opinion this looks professional, not to mention consistent from a branding point of view, when the full business domain name is used in the business email addresses.
One other suggestion. I recommend using generic titles before the “@” in the email address (eg accounts@, info@, sales@). Why?
Well imagine that your accounts person is named Jane Doe, and her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. What happens when Jane leaves the business and you employ John Smith as the accounts person?
You either have a situation where John Smith has to have access to the email@example.com email address, or you have to let all your clients and other people that emails to accounts must now go to firstname.lastname@example.org – either way it is messy.
If the email address for accounts is email@example.com, then it doesn’t matter who the accounts person actually is.
