Taking your business digital can be a costly exercise if you don’t plan where you are going and how to get there.
Welcome to Day 8 of the Take Your Business Digital Guide for those who are afraid to Brave Technology. You can read the previous posts here.
Yesterday we talked about the benefits of using Google Drive to store all your documents, files, photos etc in the cloud.
Today we are going to talk about creating documents and spreadsheets using Google Docs and Google Sheets.
If you have a business you have probably used Microsoft Word and EXCEL to write letters, prepare quotations, do budgets etc. For many people the cost of buying Microsoft Office licences has got very expensive. Another disadvantage is that only one person can work on the document at a time and you can end up with multiple version numbers as the document goes backwards and forwards between collaborators.
In yesterday’s post I talked about getting brave and taking your business into the 21st century by “going digital”.
In a nutshell, you use computer programmes and technology that connect to the internet which will help you to run your business more efficiently, connect with your customers and potential customers and close more sales.
Attending a computer class is all very well but what so often happens is that the class moves so fast and you get lost. Frequently the content is also not relevant to your particular circumstances.
When you have a technology problem to solve you want it solved NOW. This is why we are offering you the opportunity to have one on one sessions and/or Skype, FB Chat, Google Chat etc on an adhoc basis so your specific problems can be addressed as you come across them.
The products we provide training on include:
Cost: R260 per hour for individuals or R225 / hour per person, for groups of up to 4 people
We provide internet connectivity but you need to bring your own laptop.
We teach you what you want/need to know and we teach you at your own pace.
This is what Braving Technology is all about. Helping the Technology Challenged and Technology Scared to overcome their fears so that they can grow their businesses and be more productive.
I help you to use technology without fear to streamline your administration systems, connect with your customers and suppliers and close more sales.
From helping you to understand your business and creating a detailed plan to ensure you don't make costly mistakes, I will help you implement the right systems for your business.
Understanding why you need a website, what the purpose of YOUR website is, how to create a marketing strategy using newsletters, the need to have new great content, interacting on the right Social Media platforms and then analysing what does and doesn't work is how I can help you.
Using Google applications and Sage Online Accounting to streamline your administration and financial systems and ensuring that your files and data remain safe.
Training your staff to use these systems is vital to the successful running of your company. I can assist you with training via Skype, or if you live in Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa, one on one sessions or small group workshops.
I started Braving Technology after numerous technololgy challenged friends and family asked for help to set up blogs, websites, and to help them with all their basic computer questions.
