Every blog has a beginning. Some blogs have an ending. Some blogs just sort of stop. Why do they stop? Usually because you get too busy to keep on going with it.
These days, everyone has a lot of things going on and it can be difficult to keep up with everything. For the small business, it can be a real nightmare trying to figure out how to run their business as well as keep up with marketing and promotion of their products or services. One of the key elements is having a web presence.
Many small businesses still have the old "firstname.lastname@example.org" type of address listed on their business cards and on their web sites. Does that say professional to you? It doesn't to me.
When I ask people why they still have this old school email address, the answer is usually either:
1) Didn't know there was any other option
2) I thought it was expensive
The reality is that it is not very expensive to change this. Ask me how, today.
