A dedicated email address is essential for your freelance business as a professional. Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail and Yahoo are fine for personal use but not for professionals. Even if you do not have a website yet, having a dedicated email address on your domain for your business is very important.
Learn how to select an appropriate domain name and a GDPR-compliant data centre, what information your email signature must have, and how to handle your daily correspondence to ensure you are not overwhelmed by your emails.
