There is one resource that I really couldn’t imagine living without. This is my one stop for cloud storage and content creation. In this modern day of technology it goes without saying that it can be all to easy to loose an important document or time consuming waiting for your team to email you back updates to a document.
We all know that feeling when a great idea strikes but you don’t have a pen or are away from your computer but don’t want to loose it. I bet you have a smartphone in your hand or even your iPad. You could easily jot these ideas into one place and open them up when you back to your desk or even send a text to a team member to open it up and flesh out the details.
I know the suspense is probably killing you by now.
The single cloud storage system that I could not imagine running an online business without is Google Drive.
The tools and resources that this one cloud storage solution offers is truly mind blowing. It has built in word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, and even form creator just name a few. And the best part is if you use these Google Docs they don’t count towards your storage limit the free limit is 15GB but you can upgrade to what is probably the most affordable out there you can get 100GB of storage for only $1.99 per month.
The developers that work with Google Drive APIs are awesome in their own right. Many programs that you use allow you to back up things such as contacts, your bitmarks from Bit.ly and many others to this one place. I personally back up my whole website and it is automatically stored on my Google Drive.
The best is that there are always new things being integrated with just extends this cloud storage solutions functionally making it much more than I would have ever thought when I first moved all my files over a few years ago.
I would love to hear how you store and back up all of your files to keep your business running efficiently in the comments.
