Google For Small Businesses - Google Drive


You may have used Google Drive here and there to send files between friends and family, but Google Drive is also quite a powerful tool for small businesses in a variety of ways. It can be used for storing and sharing files, collaborating on projects and much more. In this article, we’ll highlight just some of the many ways that small businesses can use Google Drive for their benefit and growth.


Store and share files easily.


Google Drive is a great way to store all of your business' files in one place. It operates on a cloud service that comes with a limited storage capacity. If you’re reaching your storage limit, you can always upgrade this service depending on your business and budgeting needs. The service also connects seamlessly with other Google services like Gmail and YouTube.


You can create folders, label files, and search for them easily. You’re then able to share specific folders, files and drives with people both inside and outside of your business. You’re also given the choice between sending “editing” or “viewing” privileges to the recipient to keep important documents from being inadvertently altered.


Collaborate effectively.


Google Drive makes it easy to work on projects with others, no matter if they’re one of your valued clients or a team member inside of your business. You can create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations together, and see who's working on what in real time. 


Communication is also made easier with Google Drive. You can talk with teammates via live chat, or leave comments on the document to be reviewed by others. You also have the ability to look back at a detailed version history to see what the document looked like at various times. This can be useful both internally and from business to client, or client to business.


Save time and effort.


With Google Drive, you can automate certain tasks like backing up data or sharing files with teammates. This way, you can spend less time on tedious responsibilities and more time on the things that matter. Need to make a quick change on the go? Access your files from anywhere, so you can get work done even when you're not at the office.

All in all, you’ll get more done.


With Google Drive, you can create a very efficient foundation for your business operations. Although these are just some of Google Drive’s most notable benefits, there are likely many more useful features out there for you to discover. Give Google Drive a try today!
