Would you use a cell phone built in the 1980s? Of course not. In fact, you probably couldn’t find a cell phone from the 1980s that would work on today’s networks. So why in the world would you use an email address that’s been around since the 1980s?
This week I’ve received emails from several attorneys whose email addresses ended in @somethingotherthanthefirmname.com.
That’s bad for business because it sends a message that, well, you’re stuck in the 1980s. That is not a message you want to send!
There is no reason for any attorney to have an email address that is not linked to their own domain name. Domain names are inexpensive and easy to obtain. Check out www.namecheap.com. And you can use your domain name for your email, even if you don’t have a website.
So, put away that leisure suit, disco ball and your old email address. You’ll be glad you did.
