Business standards is the key to a successful business. One of the standards you should consider it making sure you have a professional email address. You should create a domain name that represents your company. Then create an email with your domain name. You should not be using @gmail.com @yahoo.com @outlook.com @proton.me or any other extension that does not represent your business professionally.
You should not be using your personal email address as your company email address. Just like a business bank account you need to separate your personal email address from your professional email address. It keeps things about your business in one location without having to sift through business and personal.
Having a professional email address will also legitimize your business. There have been too many instances of fraudulent emails circulating the internet masking to be a business. So more and more people are becoming aware of not responding to and or opening anything that comes from @gmail.com @yahoo.com etc. Which can cost you to delay your business if you need a signed proposal or to communicate further with a client.
You also shouldn’t have your employees use their personal email address as a way to communicate with clients. What belongs to the company needs to stay with the company. If you were to ever terminate your employee how would you have the capability to terminate their access? If they are using their personal email address then you have no way of denying them access to your company information. And you have no way of retrieving any information they sent back and forth to clients. That information stays in their personal email account.
Stay current with business and technology trends. Create a legitimate professional business email. Stay away from using @gmail.com @yahoo.com @outlook.com etc.
