How to Use Your Business Domain with Gmail

by Cinnamon McCann · 6 comments



Are you still using your free email account to conduct business? Well, if you answered yes, this tutorial is just for you. In this tutorial I will show you how to continue to grow your business brand while still using Google’s Gmail service.

If you are running a small business and using a free email address (like gmail or yahoo) you are killing your brand! You want your email to come from you@yourbusinessname. If someone wanted to find out more information about your company, they could simply copy your company domain from your email, plug it in and go directly to your company’s website. Customers can’t do that if you are still promoting google or yahoo’s domain.

You want to be professional in every aspect of your business and a free email address screams “amateur” or “business newbie.”

In the tutorial below, I will show you the simple steps on using gmail to send your emails from your company’s domain.

Google’s Gmail service has a bunch of perks that you may come to love in your business:

  • It’s FREE
  • Gmail has ninja like spam filters
  • You can search to find an ancient email in a matter of seconds
  • Syncs your email with all of computers and smart devices so that your emails are with you at all times

Now if you haven’t already registered your company’s domain name, you can use a company like or to lock down your company’s domain name. It should cost you approximately $9 to $14 per year. Then you can use the steps outlined below.

    I have been looking all over to find a simple way to do this! Thank you. I know it looked unprofessional for me to keep using my free email address, but I had no clue how to do it. I am going to try out right now! Thanks again.

    I absolutely agree! I hate is when people use their free email address to conduct business. It screams amateur. You want your business to look professional at all times so at least start with your email address. Great tut!

    Thanks for the great tutorial. Do you recommend creating a gmail account for your company and then doing these steps or could you do this with a personal gmail account?

      Hi Sharon. It’s a personal choice, but I personally like to keep my business and personal email account separate.
