When you purchase your domain name and website, you have the option of creating a custom email address which has your domain name in it (for example, “”). The only problem was that the email interface was is not so cool. It is often difficult to organize emails, things can get lost. The good news is you can integrate your professional email with gmail!

  1. Having a custom domain email address makes you appear more professional. I used to use “,” which gets the point across, but doesn’t execute the same level of professionalism that an email address branded with  my business name does. I mean, you’re promoting your business, not Gmail’s. 
  2. Let’s face it, most of the email software included with your webhost is not so cool. It’s hard to navigate, difficult to organize, and appears to have been built in the 90s. Personally, it made checking my email inbox even more of a chore.
  3. Gmail is kind of awesome. I am probably biased, but I’ve tried several other email providers and always go back to Gmail. I appreciate its clean interface and the way it’s organized. I also love that I can use Google Drive, which really helps when working with clients.
  4. You can be logged into multiple accounts at once. Prior to my new email addresses, I could only be logged into one Gmail account at a time. It was kind of a hassle when I needed to log out of, say, my web design business’ Gmail account and log into my Vlog Gmail account. Now, I can be logged into both at once.
