1. Ensure the recipient is expecting the email or won’t mind receiving it.
2. Make sure your email client is set up to display your name and email address correctly. Use a meaningful name for yourself, e.g. “Patrick O’Conner” or “ABC Windows”. Do not use non-specific names or names which won’t mean anything to some people, e.g. “Buddy” or “The Girls”.
3. Always always include a subject line and make sure it tells the recipient what the email is about, e.g. “Our Meeting Agenda” or ” Sales Plans for Europe”.
4. Be clear and specific in your email, don’t waffle. Tell the person who you are and why you are contacting them. Don’t just send an attachment and hope they will figure it out for themselves.
There is lots and lots of advice out there about how to choose a domain name. First things first though you need to decide which TLD or ccTLD. ? TLD includes .com, .net, .org, .info, .eu etc, ccTLD is country specific such as .co.uk (UK), .de (Germany) or .ie (Ireland). Most people tend to want to go for a .com, but getting the domain name you really want maybe more difficult as many .com’s have already been registered. Going for a country specific domain registration will mean you have a better chance of getting what you want and it immediately tells others where you are based.
With so much free email about, gmail, hotmail etc etc why bother with hosting your own email, surely you can’t get better than free!
Firstly one major advantage to hosting your own email is that you get to choose exactly what you want for an email address, provided you have bought the domain ?you want. ?There is nothing worse that seeing a business email address like email@example.com. ?With your own domain you can have multiple email addresses such as Info@domain.com, Sales@domain.com and John@domain.com.
Secondly you can manage all these emails addresses exactly as you want, redirect email addresses, point all the email addresses to one email, set auto replies, have multiple users, this list goes on and on.
Thirdly, you have peace of mind that your data is secure and private!
Registering a domain ?and hosting as many emails as you like typically would cost approx. $50.00 per year. ?Great value when you think you will have the email address you want, looks professional and you have full control…..
