Establishing an Email for Your Business

email-icon1There are many varied opinions on how you should establish an email for your business. Some say you should never use a free email address as the main business address. When we are talking about free email we are talking about the addresses you can get from Google (Gmail), Yahoo, Hotmail, and yes even  AOL. While I understand the logic behind it, I don’t necessarily agree with it.  Most say, even if you don’t yet have a website you should still register a domain for your business and set up an email through that domain. It makes sense because instead of your email being something like joeschmo@gmail.com it could be something like joeschmo@hisbusiness.com. It tends to help you look more professional and legitimate.  It makes sense right?  But is it really necessary when you are first starting your business when time and money are tight?
