    What is GSuite?

    GSuite is Google’s suite of cloud based business tools aimed at improving collaboration and productivity. It includes Docs, Calendar, GMail, Meet and more.

    Many of you will already be aware of it and possibly be using it (we do here at Aillum).

    GSuite offers both paid and free versions, and both include tools that can be used to help you improve the consistency, organisation and management of your digital marketing activity.

    We invited Cobry along to discuss those tools as our guest for tip 17!

    Marketing Schedule: Creating a Shared Calendar within GSuite

    Google Calendar is a great tool to help manage your digital marketing schedule. More so, sharing that calendar with others on your team means everyone involved can see times, dates & descriptions associated with each activity.

    In his first tip, Gordon offers an overview of how to setup a shared Google Calendar to get you started.

    “It’s good to have everyone on a level with everything that’s going on marketing wise.”

    “One of the first tips we’re going to chat about is using Google Calendar for creating your marketing schedule and making sure your whole team knows about any campaigns that are ongoing, and can get involved with anything on social media that’s maybe going out, for them to engage with. Of course, the more engagement you get, the more exposure you’re going to have.” discusses Gordon.

    Data Collection: Use Google Forms for signups, Enquiry Forms and Surveys

    According to Gordon, Google Forms is “One of the more powerful aspects of GSuite, but also a very much lesser known area. A lot of people don’t know about Google Forms. When they think about the editors available within GSuite, they think Docs, Sheets and Slides.”

    “It’s a really powerful way to go about data collection, using it for signup forms or lead generation forms.”

    In his 2nd tip Gordon discusses use of Google Forms for event signup and lead generation.
