Step 1.4 – Business Website and Email
When credit providers research your company on the internet, it is best if they learned everything directly from your company website.
Many business owners fail to see that not having a company website is hurting their chances of obtaining multiple trade lines from various vendors. There are many places online that offer affordable business websites so you can at least have an internet presence that displays an overview of your company’s services and contact information.
Don’t Overlook The Need For a “Real” Business Email Address
It is important to get a company email address for your business.
It’s not only professional, but greatly helps your chances of getting the thumbs up from a credit provider. A great example is an email like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
What you want to avoid is using a free service like yahoo and hotmail. The Email address has to be “@yourcompany.com”.
There is nothing worse than potential credit providers noticing your company email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Setting up a business email address is just too easy and inexpensive to neglect.
Business Website and Email Address
The Domain Search at GoDaddy will allow you to check availability of your domain name. As a BCIC Member I have arranged for you to get a BIG Deal! $5.99* .COM from GoDaddy.com!
If your business name is already taken as a “.com” address try some variations of it, like .net or .org. You can also try variations of the business name itself until you find an available one. Then buy it.
Lenders and credit providers will check to see that you have both a professional website and email address. Whether you want a new website that is custom built for your business or you’d like your existing website upgraded or “remodeled”, there is a solution.
