The Google Workspace: unless you live under a rock, you have probably heard the term floating around online the last few weeks, we certainly have.
But what actually is it? And why should anyone care?
Well, in actual fact you are probably far more familiar with it than you might think, because Google Workspace – formerly known as G-Suite – is basically Microsoft office with a different name! Google Docs is its equivalent to Microsoft Word, Google sheets is the same as Microsoft Excel, Google Meet is just like Skype or Microsoft Teams, and Google Slides is almost identical to PowerPoint.
In fact, you can even download all Google documents, slides and sheets as Microsoft file types as they’ll all work across both Google Workspace and Microsoft Office. Also, you won’t have any issues with transferring documents as you can convert all Microsoft files to Google Workspace and vice versa.
To help you manage all of this, Google also provides you with 30GB of free storage and allows you to run all of your emails through Google Workspace.
Another brilliant thing about Google Workspace is that it enables you to link your email to your custom domain name, so your email could be [email protected]. Instead of [email protected]. Giving your business a more professional feel, Google’s domain linked email experience is also completely ad-free.
Sounds good but surely it’s quite pricey?
With all these perks you might be thinking that Google Workspace is just for big businesses, but it is actually surprisingly affordable. At only £4.14 per user, per month, it is well within the budget of most businesses and entrepreneurs – even those just starting out.
On top of this, the Google Workspace system is safe, secure and has no downtime. It also includes phishing and spam protection that blocks more than 99.9% of attacks; meaning you’ll no longer have an inbox drowning in spam emails from self-proclaimed princes that promise endless riches if you’ll just hand over your card details, passport, birth certificate, house keys and will.
We understand that not everyone gets as excited about new marketing software as much as we do, but Google Workspace is one of the few email systems that we actively encourage clients to use – and we’re specialists at setting it up.
Whether you’re fed up with your current system or simply feel you’re not getting as much out of it as you want, we’d love to help you get set up with Google Workspace as we really can’t recommend it enough.
We love to use our expertise to help businesses of every kind and we believe Google Workspace can help with problems you didn’t even realise you had.
