« Get Your Own Email Address for a More Professional Image

I attended my local Real Estate Investors Club last night. It’s interesting how often I end up talking about how to use the internet with real estate investors. The most successful Real Estate investors now and in the future will be marketing and connecting on the internet. Here’s a question I was asked:

How can I get an email address with my company name?

You first have to buy your company name as a Domain address (URL). There are a couple ways or places to do that.

1) Find a Registrar you like and buy your name (if it’s available) Register your company as a URL (domain name) and use the registering site’s free email and Voila! you have an email address with your company name. Domains cost on average about $10 a year. The best, cheapest place I’ve found that I buy all my domains from is Netfirms.com

A domain name without a web site hosted on it is pretty ugly and not great image for your company. Having even a simple web site on your domain is better than visitors landing on “under construction.” In the real estate world it’s like buying land with nothing on it. Build a web site and add to the value of your address. You are literally creating virtual real estate.

Your registrar also offers web site hosting and web site do it yourself web site builders.

2) Plan ahead, buy your web site hosting and domain together. You don’t have to host your web site with the registering company. I generally buy my domains cheap from Netfirms and then buy hosting on Bluehost.com because I get a lot of space for multiple web sites and because I pay by the year it’s only about $7.95 a month for hosting. You will need to buy your first domain directly from Bluehost if you host with them. It costs a few bucks more than Netfirms.com but you will be able to have more domains hosted with them for free. Other companies will charge you a monthly hosting fee for each domain/site. You can also set up multiple email addresses for free.

Having your own email address is a must if you are serious about business. If you are still using a yahoo.com or hotmail.com or att.com email address, get your own email addres and you will project a much more professional image. Do it now! Register your name and your company name as URL’s.
