Google vs. Google...come again?

Services for Real Estate Pros with It never hurts to know the owner @ BizPrintSolutions.com

Have you ever heard of Google’s free email account called Gmail? Probably a dumb question! While I haven’t researched the statistics, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the most widely used email service on the web these days!

If you use Gmail, you must already know about Google Docs & Calendar as well, both great and useful additions to the account! Now, here comes the BUT! Have you heard of Google Apps? While Gmail has some great tools, Google Apps has waaaay more!

If you’re not already familiar with Google Apps, it’s very similar to Gmail, only instead of an @gmail.com account you get an @yourdomain.com account, allowing you to bring that added level of professionalism to your email. Additionally, Google Apps lets you connect with all kinds of programs to help you run your business more efficiently as you can see from the screenshot below...(click to view)

Google Apps Marketplace

So what’s the catch? Google Apps does require you to use your own domain which you should be able to pick up for around $10/yr. And while there are a number of free apps in the marketplace, there are also some that come with a price tag.

Overall, I think Google Apps is a great solution for email and a ton of other services as well! And, last time I checked, Google still offers a free account that lets you create up to 10 users @yourdomain.com ($50/user/yr if you ever need to upgrade), which probably works just fine for most Real Estate agents!

I do have a gmail account, but I am not familiar with Google apps, I think I'll go check it out. Thanks for the tip Nic.

Nic, I just heard about this yesterday, I'm not a google person but lots of people do like it.  I'll check out your web site to see if you offer color flyers.  Thanks, Regina Brown

@Regina, we actually have 7 property postcards on our site that can be used for an Open House.  You would use your property photos and text.  We also design custom postcards if one of our templates won’t work for you. View them online here  http://www.bizprintsolutions.com/317.html. If you get stuck and need help, just use the live chat feature on our site. Hope that helps and thanks for the comments!

I've been licensed as a real estate broker specializing in the sale of business for over 20 years. Our Firm started using Google Apps in 2006 and I liked it so much I became an Authorized Google Apps Reseller in February 2011. There are several good CRM services that can be completely integrated into Google Apps. I'd be happy to assist anyone who is interested in getting more out of Google Apps, including integrated training, CRM, accounting, email marketing, and other categories. http://EasygApps.com
