@yourbusinessname.com?

Let’s face it, if you own a business, and you’re using an email, for example ( YourBusinessName@gmail.com ), that’s not a good look. There’s no other way to say it. The good news is, you can easily change it to, for example, hello@yourbusinessname.com. Bad news, the system I use through Google cost around $6 a month, but it’s the best by far! There are other platforms such as Go Daddy, who offers this option as well, but I like to make things easier and for it to be user-friendly.

Step-By-Step How To Tutorial

Step 1
Purchase A Domain Name

For my business email, I love google.But, I prefer to use GoDaddy.com when it comes to domains. If you haven’t done so already, visit GoDaddy.com and purchase a domain name. Before buying a domain, if you find that you are having trouble finding a business name, you can do the following.
  • Have an affordable company such as Operation Name find your name for you.
  • Purchase a great book that I would recommend called ” Hello, My Name is Awesome,” which will help you figure out a business name.
  • Use NameCheckr.com to make sure that the name you love is available.

Step 2
Visit G Suite Gmail Product

Step 3

Type in your business name, number of employees, and the country you’re located in.

Step 4

Type in your first name, last name, and your current email address

Step 5

For the section ” Does your business have a domain?” select “Yes, I have one I can use” if you purchased your domain name outside of Google, for example, through Go Daddy. If you have NOT purchased a domain name and would like to purchase one through Google, click “No, I need one”.

Step 6

If you’ve selected ” Yes, I have one I can use”, for what’s your business domain name, type in the name of your business domain.

Step 7

Type in your domain name again

Step 8

For ” How will you sign in”, type in the username you would like to use. For example, Hello, Info, Create, or your name. Then type in a strong password.

Step 9

Type in your credit card information. Google will not charge you until your 14-day trial is over. Make sure, if you like to downgrade your account to the $6 a month Basic Professional office suite with 30GB storage. You can learn how to do this here
