Simple Way To Open A Gmail Account For Your Business
So I was surfing the Gmail platform, I decided to open a new account for my business blog, when I got to the sign up menu, I was expecting to see the form to fill as usual, but boom I was provided with additional options which asked me to choose what kind of account I want to create. The provided options include:
1. For Myself
2. To Manage My Business
When I saw these options, then I got to know that there has been an update on the Gmail platform. But trying out the two options, I got to understand that there was no real difference on both of them because I tried to fill the form for both options and found out that everything was the same.
Though I believe behind the scenes on Google desk, there is definitely going to be a difference or maybe the difference would surface soon as I strongly believe its still been worked upon.
Even though, like I said that there is no any difference in both features, but there is still need to know how to set up both accounts because for Google to put it there, it means they are definitely working on it. But before everything is set, I want you all who are reading this article to be among the first set of persons who would be using the business platform while we wait for the full implementation of the business features.
Also, remember that those who join first always get the best account compared to those who joined later after the full implementation.
