E-mails and E-mail signatures: If you own or run a website, you will in most cases have an email address with an extension matching your website Domain name; for example firstname.lastname@example.org The biggest mistake most people do is to have their own business’ email address and continue to use their hotmail, gmail or yahoo email accounts. Yahoo or Google allow you to use their email accounts for free because the more you use their email addresses the more you promote their companies. The sooner you start using your Business or Company email address, the sooner you will start to promote your own Business or Company. Whenever I receive an email, I look at the email extension to see where it is coming from, if the email message is good and the sender forgot to include their website address, I normally copy the email-extension into the browser and visit the website. E-mail signature: This is a small message normally found at the end of the email content. It normally reads as follows: Joshua B CEO S-W-H email@example.com www.success-wealth-health.com Your email can easily be configured to show this message on every email you send out. The small message above is very important for two reasons:
- It tells you the person’s name and position in the company who has sent the email in case you wish to contact them.
- It also tells you where the email is coming from. This is very important because at every given opportunity you want people to know or hear about your company or business.
