Of all the online software I use, Google Drive is the one I use the most. Whenever I am coaching an aspiring virtual assistant on the ins and outs of the virtual assistant business I usually always mention the importance of learning how to use Google Drive.
Google Drive is an office suite of productivity applications. What does that mean?
It means that you can collaborate and share documents such as Word documents, Excel documents and PowerPoint presentations with your clients without having to send the files as attachments in email. No more going back and forth dictating what changes need to be made and multiple copies of a document. Just choose who you want to share your files with and viola!
To give you an example of how I use Google Drive let’s say I have several clients. Each client has the contract that we signed before we started working together. In addition to our contract I have all the log in information they have shared with me for their websites, social media accounts and other software they use to run their business. I need to keep all of this information stored, organized and easily accessible so that I can access this infomration at a moments notice no matter where I am in the world.
For each and every file I have on my Google Drive I have the ability to share that file with anyone I want so long as they have a Gmail account (note: to share with non-Gmail users click here)
In the video below I’ll give you a quick tutorial on how to use Google Drive to organize your files and share those files with your clients.
