Setting Up Your eMail Accounts

Published on 6/4/2014

FavIcon Up Your eMail Accounts:

Note: This is the 6th in the “GetStarted” Sequence. In this IBO Toolbox Press Release, we will get you started setting up the eMail accounts that you will need to handle the information flow from you Internet Marketing efforts.The three main Free eMail providers are Gmail/Google, MSN with Outlook and Hotmail, and Yahoo.

First, let’s go back to The Plan that you started in your OneNote or other notebook in the second PR of this sequence. *NB: You should be reviewing your plan on a daily basis.* After you have looked at, and perhaps made notes to, your Why, Goals, and Processes pages, turn to your Theme page.

On your Theme page, you should have notes on; the Theme of your Online Efforts, your color scheme and perhaps your Logo. To this we will add, “What is Your Brand Name?”. Think about all of the Brand Names that you know. In your Internet Marketing efforts, it is necessary to build a Brand Identity. You are essentially Self-Branding yourself. But, you don’t necessarily want to limit yourself to just your name. You may want to build a Brand that will last well beyond yourself.

When I was first considering Internet Marketing and what I wanted to do with it, I tried to come up with a Brand Name that was Unique. My choices seemed to be competition for a descriptive term, or coming up with a Brand Name that would be easy to find once I got people to Search for it. *Note: My name, Curtiss Martin, used to only yield info on the football player. Competing with someone famous can be difficult.*

In my family, we were already using NoveNoga as a short word for the phrase, Nothing Ventured – Nothing Gained. The philosophy of this phrase seemed to perfectly fit the tone of my online efforts. Unfortunately, Noveno, GA is already using that Domain name. Fortunately, “Nove-Noga” was available and thus my Brand Name was chosen. Search “Nove-Noga” to see the results.

This brings me back to your Brand Name. Do you have a short descriptive term for your efforts that you may want to use as a Domain name? Even if you are dead set on, “LetsMakeAlotOfMoneyOnline” you may have the perfect word in mind to associate with your efforts. Part of your Self-Branding efforts as an Internet Marketer will be to reinforce your name whenever possible. To this end, whenever possible, you should use your Brand Name in setting up your eMail accounts.

Keep in mind that the naming rules are different for each eMail Provider and Social Network. For instance, the dash in “Nove-Noga” is not permitted in many places, including IBO Toolbox. I have used several variations in my online efforts.

Preparation OneNote and KeePass:
In setting up our IBO Toolbox account we created a Setup page under IBO Toolbox in our OneNote notebook program. As you set up more accounts, pages and profiles, you will want to group all information of this kind together. Open OneNote to the IBO Toolbox Section on the Setup Page. Open KeePass Password Tool and Select the eMail Group.

Move a Copy of IBO Toolbox Setup to “Setups” Section:
It is a good idea to keep a copy of all your setups in one place. In OneNote, go to the “IBO Toolbox” section. On your Setup Page, select and copy the information you have already entered under “Profile:”. Click on the Starred Tab, “*”, to Create a New Section. Set the name of this new section to “Setups”. For the page title, use IBO Toolbox. Paste the IBO Toolbox Setup information for your Profile on the page.

For Each New eMail Account:

Create a New Page for your New Account in OneNote:
Having chosen which account you are going to Setup, select the Preparation Information from the list below. In OneNote – Setups, Click on “New Page”. Set the Page Name for the new account. Paste the Preparation information in the new page. You can use this and the previous information from IBO Toolbox to begin planning your new account.

Create a New KeePass Entry:
In KeePass in the eMail Group, Click the Wrench Icon (Add Entry) and prepare your new entry from the information in your OneNote Page.

Password Structure:
You are quite likely to be accessing your eMail accounts from your phone or other portable device. To minimize the problems with inputting Passwords on these devices, you might want to simplify the password structure to something like, “######aaaaaa”, using only digits/numbers and lower case characters. To generate passwords in this format, in KeePass {Add Entry} select the Wrench Icon (Generate a Password) on the Password lines and select Open Password Generator. In {Password Generator} Select Generate Using Pattern. Set up your pattern using the lower case D, “d” for digits and the lower case L, “l”, for lower case letters (ddddddllllll). Then Click [OK].

*KeePass Note:
To learn more about this, in KeePass, Select Help – Help Contents – Features – Password Generator – Generation Based on Patterns. There you will see the various placeholder options for generating your Passwords. *Note: If you did not see this, set the Help Content to the Local File. In the KeePass Menu, Select Help - Help Source and set the Help button default to the “Local help file”. Click [OK]. Then Select Help ->Help Contents to see the Local File {KeePass Password Safe Help}. When in doubt; read the available instructions.*

With KeePass {Add Entry} prepared with the title, proposed username, password and URL, Click [OK]. Double Click the URL entry in your KeePass line for your new eMail account. This should take you to the Login page. *NB: You should add each new Login Page to the eMail folder of your Favorites/Bookmarks.* There is usually a link to “Sign up now” to get you started with your new account. See specific notes for each type of account.

Enter the required information. When you enter your proposed username, there should be an indication of the availability of the account. Adjust until you find one that works. Remember to mark any changes in KeePass and OneNote. At the end of the sign up process, there is probably some form of security test to prove you are a living being. Complete the process and continue with your setup. Take the moment to check out their welcome information. You never know when you can learn something new.

*Note: Today we are simply setting up these accounts. In the next Press Release, we will explore setting up the Profiles for Google, MSN, and Yahoo. See Note for Gmail/Google.*

Repeat the steps above as necessary for each new email account:

*-*-* Preparation Information *-*-*

*-*-* End Preparation Information *-*-*

To Recap:
Tools – Microsoft OneNote, KeePass Password Tool, Favorites/Bookmarks.

Task – Update The Plan, Prepare for each new account and set it up, Add your eMail Logins to Favorites/Bookmarks.

Now that you have finished setting up your eMail accounts, you are prepared for the onslaught of eMails generated by your Internet Marketing efforts. Be sure to select one to dedicate to your IBO Toolbox account. I find Hotmail/outlook to be excellent for simple notification generators like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook while the sorting done for you by Gmail makes it easier to deal with the eMails generated by Opt-In pages. The sooner you make a plan, the sooner you can get started making the most of your Online Efforts. Nothing Ventured – Nothing Gained: Nove-Noga!
