Have you ever had a terrible email address? Do you still have a terrible email address? Do you know what your email address is subliminally saying about you and your company?
I’ve had an email address since I was ten years old. I don’t remember what it was, but I’ve always been sensible. Probably more out of luck than judgement.
However, if you’d like to email my partner circa 2001 drop her a line at firstname.lastname@example.org (ironically, she forgot her password years go but still remembers the email address)
When it comes to professional email addresses, it always bugs me seeing “email@example.com”. It looks unprofessional, but also it’s missing a great chance to tell people you have a website…
This, however, is digital perfection:
What does the conventional email address say about your company?
Firstname@business.com – Small company
Firstname.firstname.lastname@example.org – larger company
email@example.com – edgy company
firstname.lastname@example.org – stuffy old school company stuck in the dark ages
Hello@business.com – friendly, informal company
email@example.com – emails to this will never be read by anyone
firstname.lastname@example.org – this company will probably take your money and run for the hills
What’s the best email address you’ve ever seen?
