Google is my favorite corporation by far. The tools they have created make my life so much easier as a freelancer. Not only do I have a Google phone, but my entire business runs off of tools that the giant has developed.
You can use google forms for a lot of different purposes (surveys, questionnaires, party invites, event registration, etc).
You can view their responses in your google drive.
You can download the responses into an excel sheet.
I use the answers as a baseline for the project I’m working on.
I use Google Keep to collect ideas, images, and thoughts to help with the copywriting project.
You can use it to store everything related to your project while you are on the go. It is stored in a cloud so you always have access to it.
I use Google Docs to write and edit the document I’m working on. I love it because it saves automatically on the cloud so no work ever gets lost. Also, I can share the skeleton draft with the client without having to upload it to an email file. Plus, I can quickly make a copy of it to edit.
I use Google Slides to create marketing plans, creative briefs, and additional marketing materials.
I use Google Sheets to keep track of everything.
I use Gmail to send the completed project and to communicate with the client.
All of these tools are self-explanatory. As a small business owner or marketing professional, you will need to collaborate with others and share ideas without having to upload everything all the time. Plus it can be hard to keep track of all those changes. Let Google do it for you.
I love the calendar because it provides multiple views of the day, week, month, etc.
I color code my task so I have a visual of what my day looks like.
Also, Google has a feature where my calendar is connected to my alarm clock so when I press off – the voice reads my calendar to me out loud while I’m still opening my eyes. It helps me envision my day.
A basic to-do list that stores online. You have access to it in your email and you can create multiple to-do lists that have reminds and time stamps.
Google alerts is great way to stay on top of the trends. You can set up an alert that will be sent straight to your email.
Choose your topic and google will send articles related to that topic.
For example, I have “Digital Marketing” and “Copywriting” alerts.
Although outdated, my phone is tailored to my every need.
I use the following google tools plus other tools to do keyword research so my client’s landing pages rank.
If my clients provide behind the scenes access to the content. I use their Google Analytics states to craft more concise feedback based on what the feedback from the audience is.
