How to Make a Free Business Email

By Terrance Karter

A business should have an email account where employees, customers and clients, and business associates can contact whoever is in charge. If you can afford it, you can pay for your own domain name, which looks quite professional. However, if you don't wish to spend a lot of money on your business email account, you can also have a free one. There are many email companies on the Web that offer free email accounts.

Step 1

Choose a free, Web-based email company for your account. There are dozens of email companies that provide free email, so you'll need to look at each of them to see what they offer. Some, such as Gmail, offer almost unlimited storage. Others, such as Yahoo! and Hotmail, offer chat programs to connect with your email contacts. A quick glance through the home pages of the email companies will tell you which one you want to choose.

Step 2

Sign up for an email account with the company you have chosen, following the "Register" or "Sign Up" link found on the email company's home page.

Step 3

Choose an email address that is professional to use as your email for your company. The best way to come up with a business email is to choose your business name or as close to it as you can, depending on availability. Don't choose something with a lot of numbers, symbols or random letters. Make the email address easy to remember without having to write it down. And associate it to your business. Click "Finish" to create your email account.
