The domain in your e-mail address reflects on your brand and business. Don’t use an e-mail address such as:
- firstname.lastname@example.org (better than most, but still not ideal)
And please do not get an e-mail like this printed on a business card of flyer! You already have a custom domain for your website, so go the extra mile and get an e-mail account setup on your domain like: email@example.com. It will add a base level of credibility and help you get higher on that trust ladder without having to put in much effort at all.
Don’t know how to do this? That’s OK because if you are a RealtyNinja customer we can help do it for you! Just get in touch and let us know what address you want and we will help set it up.

Great blog article. I can’t believe how many professionals (in all sorts of industries) still use their original firstname.lastname@example.org etc. account. It’s just embarrassing.
PS. love The Oatmeal !!!!

No kidding… given how simple and cheap it is to register an email account at your own domain with Google Apps, there’s no excuse anymore.
