Hello there and welcome to another post for this week. I’m back with another post but it will different business post. You know that I talk and share my knowledge in the business. And I want to share some great tips about Gmail account for my business. Over the past year, I’ve been using Gmail for my blog for the longest time and still using it.
If you are using Gmail for business. You will find in this post that it can be a workplace for your business, Although, it doesn’t count as many other business email providers. There is more to know about Gmail and hopefully, this will be helpful to you and allow you to improve using it. Well, I’m going to share how to set up things because some of them I didn’t find until I tried to explore more about this platform.
Gmail account for my business and important tips
I’m sure many of us use Gmail either for business or personal. And what if I told you that more things can help you with both? Well, keep reading to know about them. Some of the things that I was surprised that I can use when first I found out about it. Also, you will know more about using it for business.
As you all know that Google is trying to build up a good environment for business owners. Having the Gmail business email is one that shows they are trying to make life easier for businesses. There will be discoveries for some people in this post that can help you with the business.
There will be two very important points and I want you to pay attention to them. Because they are important for you if you are trying to build a Gmail account for business. Also, know the difference between two things which I will talk about in a little that is something I got confused about.
Q: How does Gmail help with my business?
- Organize brand and companies emails you get
- Handle meeting better with Gmail
- Have reminders to help you remember things about the business
- Control your inbox to ensure that you are comfortable and don’t forget anything.
Well, If you have that question in mind. I just mentioned some of the great things that Gmail provides for you when you have a business email. However, that is not all because it depends on what you want and how to use them. As much as want to share everything possible, that would not be possible in one post for everything.
I’ve been using Google and Gmail for a long time. Since they have the chat box left bottom. And you can chat with people even when using your Gmail. However, things changed and everything is different. Some of the things that I was surprised that Google has it. These are Google business updates to help users.
You maybe use Gmail for business but it’s different from the business email account that you purchase from companies like GoDaddy which offer business email. Many companies now require to have that and can’t use free email such as Gmail. Which was surprising to me as well.
Q: How to create a Gmail account?
A: I know many of you know how to do that. However, for people who haven’t used it. You can create a Google account and you will have access to the Google workplace. That is including Gmail and many other tools such as Docs. Each tool will have different things and you need to optimize them.
Even Gmail is a free business address but it has many cool things. Maybe not everything that premium business email accounts have. However, it does help a lot to keep things organized and allow you to have a good workplace. And I will show you some of the things.

So, the first and very important one for business owners. If you have a Google business account and using Gmail, do not ever let the email pile up on you. It will be too much work and might not be easy for you to go through. Ensure that you keep always checking and each day finish emails on time. This way, you manage the email well. And your profile stays organized to avoid struggle.
You can set a time of the day to check emails. Remind yourself to check and make it a habit. Trust me, it can be easy to let it pile up and it will get complicated to handle. Especially, when there are many things to check and finish. It might take you longer time than you needed.
Use the labels and organize the emails
Next, something I didn’t know about until my friend told me a couple of years ago. And that is using labels to organize your emails. Having Gmail as your business email would be very helpful to organize them with labels. That will help to make it easy to access for you. You can get back to them faster and the labels can be on the sidebar on the left.
You need to have the “Important” label and ensure to practice using them. Also, practice using the “Starred” option to save the emails for later. That will save you a lot of hours. This is something I needed to practice because I always forget to do it and lose the emails.

Another cool way to work is by using the tasks feature on Google.

You can easily add emails to the tasks list. Right-click using the mouse And you will find the option to add to the tasks. Also, if you open and read it if you decide to do it. The option to add it can be found on the top with other options such as “Delete”, and “Achieve”.
