Ever wanted to use Gmail to access your office or business mail and reply to emails as though you are using your business email?
Well, you can quite easily do that. This is especially helpful to those who uses Gmail to manage a few email accounts.
Most people will have more than one email address. It is important to have a professional email address if you are running your own business. You’ll need an email address that has your domain name.
Having your own domain email shows your professionalism and tells your prospects and clients that you are serious about your business. Having your own domain email is also crucial for branding purposes. Emails delivered with your domain will also be better received as some application do not accept open source emails.
If you are on a really tight budget when starting your online business and you can only invest in three assets, I would suggest that you get the following, in that order:
1 – Your Domain Name and Professional eMail
2 – Your Website with your own domain and
3 – Your own email database of prospects and clients
These are the bare essentials. To use Google Mail to manage your domain email (and all other emails), you’ll need to is to forward all your emails to one master Gmail account and use that to read and reply to all your emails.
You’ll then only need to check one email account and not open 5 different tabs to check different email accounts. To see how you can do that watch this one-minute video.
Note: Google has made some changes since I published this video. The concept I described above still works but the way to configure Gmail now involves a few more steps. I hope to do an update video to show you the steps.
