Did You Know Google Docs Could Do This?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with 210 Consulting~ Social Media Advisors

I’ve shared before about the power of Google Docs, but not until I saw this video below did I even think half of this stuff was possible.  While I consider myself an avid user of Google Docs, it appears there is so much more I can do with it that I have not yet even scratched the surface of.

Cloud computing and being able to share/store things on a server instead of just a single computer is growing daily and will continue to become the way of the future.  The ability to share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings and more on a server with anyone else is probably my absolute favorite reason I almost solely use Google Docs anymore for projects.  If you aren’t yet convinced that you should try it out, watch the video below. I find simply brilliant.  Thanks Google Demo Slam!

Jeremy,

Very cool presentation. I also believe in cloud computing, but spend most of my time on my earth bound Macs. Just seems to build better presentation, but it wont be long till the cloud catches up.

WOW.  Amazing!  I need to check into this more.  Have used googledocs for some school volunteer things for my kids school events...but this is very cool.  Wonder what the learning curve is for this??

I use Google docs and love them.  I just started using the slides and am working on my listing presentation to be directly from those slides.  So very awesome.

I do use google docs but prefer dropbox for most things.  Giving too much of my life to Google still scares me.

Here's the thing about security.  Seen a LOT of comments about a concern.  If you email a word document or PDF file to a client there is the same security risks there as sharing the document in the cloud.  Someone can hack email address, and the servers who host your email account can see every detail that comes across it.  There's always a trail that could be followed if necessary. 

Personally, i don't think there's anything to really worry about.

Google Apps is also pretty impressive, but costs a little cash.  We use it for a non-profit that I run, but see how it could be a killer tool for real estate teams.

Jeremy, thanks for the post.  I agree with you from your response above (in #89) that security shouldn't be a concern.  Emails are generally assumed to be private communication between you and your client/team but instead should be more likened to mailing a post card.  It's as private as a post card is.

Collaborative apps such as Google Docs at least are password protected by Google's sign-in process.

Can you do a post on a few examples of how this can help us all?  Sharing one live file and team editing is one use.  How could we help our clients?

Hi Jeremy,

Google Docs is very cool. Google drive is an excellent storage service.
For example, you can use Google Docs as a backup destination to backup all your data from other cloud services. For example, if you use Evernote and Dropbox, it might good to backup all notes and documents to Google Drive.
So please check out cloudHQ (http://cloudHQ.net) - cloudHQ can backup and sync all your files from Dropbox, Evernote, SugarSync, Box, etc. to Google Docs - even Basecamp projects.
