Today, I am going to help you save money, become more productive and efficient. If you are a small busienss owner, more than likely you own a computer, and on that computer you have all the necessary software you need, such as MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
One of the biggest drawbacks of these software, is that they usually come as a starter on a brand new computer. Therefore, if you upgrade your system you may have to buy them all over again, or if you own them and want the latest version, you have to purchase an upgrade.
This is where Google Drive comes in to save the day. Google Drive offers FREE cloud-based programs such as:
- Google Docs (similar to MS Word)
- Google Sheets (similar to MS Exel)
- Google Slides (similar to MS PowerPoint)
- Google Forms (you can create surveys to get feedback from our clients)
Last but not least, Google Drive is very easy to use, and resembles the popular Dropbox and Skydrive in many ways but integrates seamlessly with Gmail, is synchronized with Google Docs and Google +, and, most importantly, and my favorite, allows you to store all your files in one single place that is accessible at all times, from any internet-ready computer, and has powerful apps for Andriod and Apple devices.
You literally have your office on the go and in your hands! Simple go to www.google.com and sign up for your FREE gmail account, and you will be up and running in no time.
