Let's Setup Your Custom Professional Email
The secret to creating a professional email is that it should reflect your company's name or rather your domain name.
Having a free account such as firstname.lastname@example.org can affect your email deliverability, especially if you are sending bulk emails.
For example, if your domain name is texaspropertybuyer.com, then your professional should be something like email@example.com.
That way, when you send emails to prospects and leads, they know exactly where it is coming from and may not be want to delete it.
While you are setting up your Google Workspace account, you will need to update your MX records of your domain name and verify it with Google Workspace.
