As a business owner, it is important to have a separate communication channel for personal and business use because this is one of the major factors that positions your business as professional.
To help you make an informed decision about Google Workspace, we have compiled the features and benefits of Gmail and Google Workspace to aid your understanding and help you select the most suitable for your business.
Gmail is a free email hosting service for personal use created by Google. It consists of 15GB of free cloud storage which is shared across Google products such as Google Drive, Gmail, etc.
Google Workspace on the other hand is a paid suite of cloud-based tools designed to ensure unified productivity and collaboration for businesses and organizations of all sizes.

Can I use my personal Gmail account for business?
If you are a business owner, it is highly recommended that you consider using a business email and not your personal Gmail account. Here’s why:
It gives your business a more professional look and feel.
It helps you to build trust with your customers and partners.
It helps reinforce your brand image with every mail you send.
You have access to advanced features to organize and manage mails better.
It makes it easier for people to look up your website.
I run my business with my Gmail account, can I switch to a business email instead?
Yes, you can. You have the option of moving your existing email data to Google Workspace. This can be done manually, or with the Google Workspace migration tool.
