Google Workspace is the cloud-based productivity suite that I personally use and recommend to clients so they can communicate, collaborate and get things done from anywhere and on any device.
It’s super simple to set up, use, and manage, so you can focus on what really matters – building your online business!
While Google Workspace offers a TON of features such as:
- secure file sharing via Google Drive (to replace tools like Dropbox)
- video conferencing via Google Meet (to replace tools like Zoom)
- and the ability to easily create and access word documents, spreadsheets, presentation slides (similar to Microsoft Office products)
My absolute favorite Google Workspace feature is the ability to create a professionally branded email address using my business domain name (also known as a website URL or site address) instead of the default Gmail email address.
Here’s an example:
Branded email – email@example.com
Default email – firstname.lastname@example.org
“With a professional email address, you establish credibility with your potential clients by showing them you are willing to invest in your success.”
This helps set you apart from the “side hustlers” and helps position yourself as a professional.

For an investment as low as $6 a month, it would be crazy not to take advantage of this simple way to make a great first impression on your potential clients and reduce the existing subscriptions you currently pay for that offer the same thing. It was definitely a no-brainer for me!
