10 Reasons To Adapt To Google Cloud Apps Today For Your 2012 Business Success (Video)

Have you ever seen the savvy entrepreneur holding court in a coffee shop or making transactions at a Panera Bread as you’re grabbing your sandwich to go and rushing back to the office, only to wonder how you too could possibly spread your wings and make theGoogle_Apps_1 world your workspace?

.

Well, with the right guidance, it’s easier than you think. And it can start with something as simple as your email.

.

Do you have a Google Gmail account that you’ve designated for personal use? Have you experienced the ease and functionality of your Gmail account and wished you could use your @mybusiness.com email just like Gmail? Well this and more is possible for your business. It’s time to take the limits off.

Many think Microsoft Outlook email is the only way you can send, receive and organize your email for your business. This is understandable. Microsoft Outlook has dominated business email for decades. While there are other alternatives out there like Lotus Notes and Groupwise, none of them have ever come close to capturing the market Microsoft cornered with Outlook and the Outlook Exchange server.

.

Well now with the advent of Cloud computing, there is another alternative to Microsoft Outlook mail and more broadly, Microsoft Office. Google Apps is a service from Google providing independently customizable versions of several Google products under a custom domain name of your own. It features several Web applications with similar functionality to traditional office suites, including: Gmail, Google Groups, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs and Google Sites.

.

Unlike Microsoft Office, Google Apps is free and offers the same amount of storage with its business email accounts as regular Gmail accounts. Google Apps for Business, which offers additional e-mail storage, is available for an annual fee per user account.

.

If you are serious about moving your business onward and upward in ways never imagined, here are 10 reasons you should consider Google Apps now for the 2012 success of your business:

.

1. You get to try the Google Apps version for up to 10 users for free.

.

2. You get to put your branded name and logo in the control panel, ie. @yourdomain.com.
.

3. Using Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook will enable companies running Microsoft Exchange Server to migrate their email boxes from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps.

.

4. Google Apps For Business gives you 25GB inbox storage per user. No more having to delete email in order to free up space.

.

5. You have access to online document storage for files of any type–unlimited storage for supported formats and 1GB for all others.

.

6. You’re granted freedom with mobile access, where you can sync with your Android, iPhone, Blackberry and other popular devices.

.

7. You’re freed of clutter and craziness with industry-leading spam filtering. Spam and virus protection and email content filtering.

.

8. You’re not left to fend for yourself. Google Apps For Business offers customer support 24/7 email and phone support.

.

9. The seatbelt sign is off and you are now free to move about the cabin: your work is 100% web-based. No software, hardware or cumbersome maintenance required, saving you time and money for business and pleasure.

.

10. You’ve got safety in numbers. Google Apps was built from the ground up with security in mind. Google Apps is the first cloud-based messaging and collaboration suite to achieve FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) certification.

.

I have been using these applications and training business owners on how to get lighter on their business feet using Google Apps for many years. Usually, it all starts with email. The more I write and speak about it, the more excited I get when I help people transition their business from the dinosaur fettering Microsoft Outlook to the nimble Google Apps For Business services.  Companies like Hamilton Beach, Virgin America and National Geographic have all gone gaga over Google Apps, so why shouldn’t you?

.

Should I come again regarding the Top 10? Take a look at the videos below about Google Apps. These videos will give you an even greater understanding of how and why you should seriously consider going Google Apps. Let’s get started now so that come 2012 you’ll find yourself truly taking things to the next level.

.

All the best,
