"Simple is best", as a small business owner, all what I want is getting the job done in effective and efficient ways, from my website, business emails, blog and group calenders to the online survey, Google Adwords & Analytics, shared Google Driver......these days there are so many things we are able to do it anytime anywhere - with Google Apps
Gmail for business, makes it more professional as you
I see so many small
business owners using hotmail, yahoo or Gmail addresses as their business
contact, I mean there is no problem to communicate with people by using email.
But have you thought about what a proper business email does mean for your image? It
makes you look way more professional. With Gmail for Business, rather than
having a firstname.lastname@example.org email address, you can create company email
addresses like email@example.com under Gmail account, for example my
business partners and I we use firstname.lastname@example.org and we are able to
access to our business email via iPhone/iPad/Andriod devices at anywhere and anytime through Gmail
account. Gmail is designed to make you more productive, it giving you 25GB of
storage means you never have to delete anything to keep your mailbox fit.
Google powered search lets you find everything in your emails and labels and spam filters help
you stay organised and secure.
Gmail is not just message, it is about people too. In Gmail contact
management, text, voice and video chats/conference let you keep in touch with
people and connect instantly, it saves your time and money on unnecessary
traveling and brings more productivity into your business.
Sites, enables you to create your own online presence.
looking to create a full featured eCommerce site or a website integrated with a
database, the big examples like Amazon or Facebook. Google Sites is
not for you. But if you wish to find a simple, fast and free tool to get your
business online, Google Sites definitely should be on your
short list. Google Sites is for publishing
website. You could also build a company intranet which enables employees share the
information within your organization, or you could publish a site for your project team to
share information quickly and easily or you could publish a
site for your sport team, family, or personal needs.
Because Google Sites integrates data from
other Google Apps into dynamic pages, you are able to insert
Google Maps into web page which allows people easily find your business
location, and you also are able to integrate spreadsheets, PDFs or data charts from Google Docs, a
deadline schedule from Google Calendar. Another advantage is it allowing you to easily set permissions and create sites for different audiences, basically just by
selecting a button you can let only certain individuals have access to the
sites you create, make them accessible to all the people in your company, or
make them public and accessible to everyone.
