Google Account Without Google Mail

GmailMost businesses should have a presence on social media avenues such as Facebook, Twitter, and the Google family of outlets (Google+, YouTube, etc).

However, there can be the issue with Google outlets as they want you to have a Google account.  But what if you don’t want to have a Gmail address to contend with along with the mountain of other email addresses you might have your business…?  There is a way around it. Thankfully.

Now, this used to be a bit easier to accomplish, but within the last few months we’ve witnessed the changes happening with Google and getting to this point where you can actually create a Google account with an email address of different origin. I’m not sure when it changed, but it used to be an option when setting up a Google Account… now, they make it impossible.
