Microsoft 365 for business is a subscription service that lets you run your organization in the cloud while Microsoft takes care of the IT for you. It connects employees to the people, information, and content they need to do their best work, from any device.

There are several plans to choose from, but we recommend Business Standard for most small businesses - and that's what we'll walk you through setting up.

  1. Go to the business plans page, and select the For business tab.

  2. Choose Microsoft 365 Business Standard, and then select Buy now.

  3. Enter an email address then select > Next > Set up account.

  4. Sign in with your current personal email or create a new email address for your business (like that you can purchase from Microsoft.

  5. Add a payment method, select Save, and select Place order.

  6. Sign in now with your new Microsoft 365 account credentials.

Next up, we'll give you an overview of the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, where you can download apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook; add more users, buy new features, and change settings for your business.
