Many domain services such as GoDaddy.com offer an email account relevant to the specific domain you purchase. The benefits to this option would include the following:
· Easier client recognition when the domain and email address are similar. It is more likely that the consumer will remember a related domain and email, than become confused on how to reach you because of a different email and domain address. The domain-email address can forward all emails to an existing email account. It is simply an alternative name with the same end means..

ex. Www.LaylaElSaid.com, e-mail: Homes@laylaelsaid.com GOOD!
· This idea is becoming the standard for agents with company websites and email addresses... Don't be left out! Many consumers will automatically email a domain name with info or support as a prefix, trying to reach a customer support affiliate.
· You can also make a domain email addresses a "catch all" account. This means that a consumer can enter any prefix to your domain, and it will recognize you as the owner of the domain and forward all email inquiries to you.
· "Automatic Responder" allows you to have a response issued on your behalf every time someone emails you at that specific domain/email address. Example:
Thank you for your recent e-mail. I look forward to speaking with you shortly. Please feel free to visit me on the web or contact me directly at (847) 000-0000.
