Start with a simple domain name. The shorter, the better. Make sure it’s easy to spell and pronounce.
Decide on a naming convention for all emails for your staff. Typically companies use:
Give each employee the ability to change their password and settings, but maintain administrative rights so that if they leaves the company you can still access and manage their email account.
When staff leaves, make sure to forward those emails automatically to another employee.
If you take yourself seriously as a small business owner, you need a custom email address.
Remember: First impressions are everything, and how potential customers see you will determine how successful your brand will be. Consider your email address your calling card, and make it memorable!
