Comes down to cost!
Tth only good thing I can say about a free email account is that it’s “FREE”. You can’t really beat free, can you? Since I believe first impressions are huge in the business world and can mean the difference between a sale or no sale, I put a lot of stock in first impressions. That being said, the cost to have a professional email address is more than justified in my situation as I feel it really could cost me sales in the long run and that isn’t good for business.
