Web Presence Definition
Defining Your Company On The Web
In any business environment, image is all important. It defines who you are and what you do. And it establishes your credibility.
And when dealing on the web, it is no different. You have to define yourself and your company.
What are the essentials of web presence definition? They are establishing your company under a registered domain name, setting up a basic web site or blog and creating email addresses that use your registered domain name.
It fixes your location. It defines your image.
You have certain advantages in the definition process on the web as compared to off line.
To establish yourself in an off line shop you have to find a place to rent, then furnish it, put up your signs, get business cards, get your phone number in the yellow pages and a lot more. That gets expensive.
On the web, you subscribe for a web hosting service, get a free domain (internet company name) and company email address that uses your internet company name. And you quickly set up a simple company blog that serves as your company web site.
In a couple hours you have a definite and fixed place on the internet and look professional.
Plus, AND A BIG PLUS AT THAT, you can use an email address that you control and that delivers to you all your email. See Email Filtered

Set Your Email Accounts

Then set up a throw away email account called firstname.lastname@example.org . Use it to subscribe to various services. It is likely to draw spam. When spam gets heavy, delete the account and re-subscribe to those services that you still want using a new account called email@example.com . And so on.
