3 Critical Reasons you need to use a Professional Email Address

How long have you been using a Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo email address for business or work-related purposes? Don't get me wrong, they each provide a fantastic suite of services and for a long time have pioneered the true meaning of cloud services. However, there comes a time, when that unusual, quirky or even embarrassing email username should be retired.

For many, the option may simply be to updated their username to a name that is more professional - ie their full name. However to really make a point (and impact), why not purchase a domain, load a simple website and create your own personalised, professional emails.

So here's 3 reasons you need to use a professional email address

1. Your personal presentation matters

If you're looking to improve your personal profile, perhaps applying for new jobs, a personalised email address will be a great way to stand out from the crowd. Then using the domain to host some information about you (such as a resume) will allow people to find out a little more about you.

2. First impressions count

If you're a small business, having an email address from your own domain will be more professional and allow you to provide more exposure and credibility to your brand!

3. Low cost

With a domain costing as little as $10 per year; and hosting (for emails and websites) from as little as $5 a month, it's always a great time to create an online presence with your own domain, personalised email addresses and a website.

For those of you attached to Google's Gmail - there are also tools that allow you to continue using Gmail as your email client.
