How to setup your business email with G Suite:
Your next step in this Website Course is to setup your business email address.
Your business email address will build trust and show that you are a real business. You will also need it to harness the power of email marketing. CANSPAM laws in the United States require you to send mass emails the an email from your domain name.
The solution I use: Google has an amazing business email solution that allows you to get an email address setup with your domain name. This product is called G Suite and it works just like gmail, but is made for businesses. At $5 per month it’s very affordable.

You can start your 14 day free trial with no payment information required. This is what it will look like:
Does your business have a domain? If you completed lesson 1, you have already purchased your domain name. Go ahead and click the Yes, I have one I can use button.
If you haven’t purchased your domain name yet, go back to Lesson 1 and purchase your domain. You will want full control over your domain name so don’t buy it through G Suite.
How you’ll sign in You’ll use your username to sign into your G Suite account and create your business email address.
If you own your domain name, you can use an email address you already have at this domain.
Your current email won’t be affected until you set up your new business Gmail account with G Suite. We’ll walk you through setting that up later.
CONGRATS! Now you have a G Suite account. There are still a few things left to do.
G Suite is going to ask for your username and password to change the MX Records with the DNS settings in GoDaddy.com. (Assuming you purchased your domain through GoDaddy.com) You can watch the tutorial above.
If you provide your username and password and click the allow button, it will do this for you.
If you don’t want to allow G Suite to access your account, you can go in manually to GoDaddy and add the MX records yourself.
Once you’ve updated the MX records within your DNS settings, it will point your G Suite email to your domain name. Once that is verified, you will be able to login to your G Suite email and start sending emails.
