accountability groups, success

Do I Have to “Brand” My Email Address?

branded email address, digital marketing

Well, technically, no – you don’t HAVE to have an email address which includes your domain, BUT – it is really a good idea to use one.

Think about it – If you were interested in hiring an attorney and you were given a choice between jsmith@smithlawllp.com or wesueforyou@yahoo.com – –  which would you be drawn to contact first?

I think that it’s really more than simply email address. In my opinion, it is part and parcel of building credibility and branding, helping to create the impression your business intends to promote to the outside world.

What I have noticed is that often, the business owner will benefit from having someone simply sit down with her to review all of her platforms, pointing out the ‘how’, ‘why’, ‘when’ and ‘where’ for each.

I refer to this as putting the foundation under the business owner’s marketing efforts.

Being empowered with knowledge of how it all fits together is the platform for a strong, effective digital presence.

But – Here’s the one thing I know for sure – You simply can not do it all at one time. Read more

Question:  Do I Really Have to Be on Every Social Network?

Answer: Yikes! No!

Although you might think it’d be great to increase your visibility by jumping on every available social network, seriously – it’s just too much to take on! Instead of creating accounts just for the sake having a profile, get strategic with the networks you choose.

How do I figure out which social networks to become active on?

Seriously, Rebeca has every reason you can possibly think of to be a miserable wretch. I won’t go into the details, but just understand, that having sustained a spinal cord injury and brain trauma almost 18 years ago, she is not the healthy, active grandma we’d both anticipated she’d be at this point in both our lives.
