Today I was going through a project I am working on, and part of that project is a list of emails. That simple act became a light bulb moment for me.
How so? Well, I have always been one to say a @gmail.com account is ok – and it is, but what you are missing by having that be your main address you give out and put on your card.. is that extra bit of advertising – having your name in front of people, and available to them when they need it.
Case in point – I often will look at someone’s card / email address and then take that part after the “@” sign to go check out their site. I you are publishing the @gmail.com address as your main one you loose that opportunity!
So from now on… it’s a specific domain related address. Every little bit counts!
So long for now,
