What kind of email do I need to create a Google account?

A Google Account gives you access to many Google products like Google My Business. With a Google Account, you can do things like send and receive email using Gmail and manage your Google My Business.

You can use a non-Gmail email address to create a Google account and manage your GMB Listing. Follow these steps to use your existing non-Gmail email address to create a Google Account which you can use to manage your GMB Page.

  1. Go to the Google Account creation page.
  2. Enter your name.
  3. Click Use my current email address instead.
  4. Enter your current email address.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Verify your email address with the code sent to your existing email.
  7. Click Verify.

Always protect your account with recovery info. In case you forget your password or if someone tried using your account without your permission, updated recovery info makes it much more possible to get your account back.
