What’s in a name? Everything – your reputation, your family history, your personality. So why aren’t you using your name in your email address?
I see so many agents using MSN.com, Gmail.com, Yahoo.com, etc for their main email address. It’s not the most professional impression. How would you feel if you were conversing online with your bank and the account executive used Yahoo.com as their main email? Not too confident?
It’s easy to register your full name as a web domain! So you can send emails from firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you haven’t, then go right her to GoDaddy.com and buy your name!
If you have an odd name or a different spelling – then buy a domain that’s easy for people to remember. For example, it’s not easy to remember this email for Jane – “firstname.lastname@example.org” however, “email@example.com” or “firstname.lastname@example.org” makes more sense when someone is trying to remember your email.
And then, you can forward that email address to your Yahoo, MSN or Gmail account. It’s easy!
Your brand is your name/your company name… use it!
