Have you ever seen a builders van drive past and on the back is their contact details? It has their phone number, and sometimes their email address…
This really bugs the hell out of me!
It looks unprofessional, it states that the builder is a cheapskate, and it generally suggests that the business owner can’t even afford the simplest of websites.
To have your own domain name – email@example.com, or similar, is inexpensive and looks more professional – Why advertise Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo, when what you really want to promote is your own business?
You don’t have to have an amazing website, it’s not for everyone afterall, buying the domain name will simply serve you for your email needs, if nothing else.
Don’t be like the rest, be the best!
To your success, David.
