As you’ve heard by now Facebook will be providing email address to its 500,000+ users.
Read the New York Times news on it here.
If you want to get a Facebook email address for your personal messaging, friends and family, that’s fine.
But please, if you have a REAL business. If you want to GROW your business, don’t start using a Facebook email address.
It hurts me to see hundreds of business owners giving me free Vistaprint business cards with a Yahoo, AOL or Gmail email address. It screams, “I’m not serious and I’m not professional.”
Sure, a free business card is nice and saves you $20 or so. But it costs you about $500 of credibility. Pay the premium to get a nice looking card. I’ve been a long time Vistaprint (paying) customer.
In the same way, a free email address saves you $50 a year or so. But guess what? It costs you hundreds of dollars in lost credibility.
Every business professional needs an email address with their branding as the domain name. Joe@joesbusinessname.com. PERIOD.
