Gmail has a professional business email service (Business Email meaning it ends with @~yourdomainname~.co.uk not @gmail.com). Before you set this up, you'll need to check the Domain Name you require is available. Use Nominet (The police of the internet) but do not purchase there, we will do this through Google (G-Suite) so everything is together.
Select Get Started on the Basic plan.
Enter Business Name and select your number of employees.
Enter your name and your current 'personal' Email Address.
(This is for backup, if you can't login with your business Email Address at any point, they will send information to your backup.)
Select 'No, I need one'... or 'Yes, I have one I can use' if you already own the Domain Name.
Enter your Domain, individual to your business.
Click continue, this is a confirmation page.
This will be your main email address you're setting up.
(Don't make the mistake I did, creating multiple email addresses, accounts@, sales@ to look bigger. Customers see straight through it, embrace where you're at now and use a single Email Address using your name so it's more personal.)
If you don't want to use your name@, use enquiries@ as sales@ and Info@ tend to get lots of spam email.
Ensure you're on the G-Suite Basic, not Business!
(If this does display business, not to worry you can complete the process and then downgrade the plan straight away.)
Customer Info. 💁♂️
If you purchased you're domain with G-Suite, ignore this section.
Also if you're domain is with GODADDY this is amazing. 🤟 Simply click 'Sign in to activate'.
(This process is connecting your Email Address to your Domain Name and automatically setting up all the technical MX records. 🤓)
This can take a few minutes.
(I've noticed this does not always work on the first attempt, but good on the second. 🤷🏻♂️)
Ignore create new users, select 'skip for now'.
You'll be taken to your G-Suite dashboard. That's it, your email is complete. You don't need to do anything else here.
