To add business emails for free within the Google platform, you must have a domain within Google. You can either transfer or purchase a Google Domain HERE
After creating your Google domain, head to the Google Domain Dashboard and make sure everything is setup properly. If you don't have a Google Domain contact us and we will help you transfer everything over.
On your Domain Dashboard you should see something like this.
Next, you will need to navigate to the Email tab on the left panel. Follow the directions to add an email alias on the page.
Click "Add Email Alias"
Make sure to add just the beginning of the email, the ending, in this example @slaterockautomation.com is already added for you.
