How to Setup Professional Email Address with Google Gmail?

Having your own brand name and professional email address but not using your branded email for sending emails, newsletters or communicating with your clients is really a foolish mistake that many bloggers often made. I was too ūüôĀ Sometimes webmasters and bloggers don’t care about this though it’s essential for any business to make it more professional.

Are you one of them? Seriously??

Do you have any idea by continuing this B.S approach actually you are ruining your business or blogging journey day by day(especially in business). Personally whenever I see a business that is using a free email address like Gmail, Yahoo mail address instead of their own branded email, just one thing comes in my mind. A business who is using un-branded email as an official contacting source, is they really want to do business or they are really serious about business? actually, they are not.

Honestly, how many times you contact a firm/company which is using @gmail or as their professional email address. So, why you also doing this mistake? You can use your branded mail address with Gmail easily by configuring some easy settings. After configuration, whenever you send an email this will be sent via your brand name like [email protected] instead of Gmail address.

Today, in this article I will show you how to set up your professional email address with Google Gmail.
