Two pages added to my website; "My Work Space" & "My Tools" displaying most of the things I have acquired to run the business. Why would I share exactly what I use? Because the rest is my own creativity, desire & passion.
The most important part of running the online business is my ASUS Google Chromebook (ASUS C302CA-GU010 360 Degrees Rotatable Full HD Touchscreen Chromebook Flip 12.5 inch Notebook)
The flip facility is not bad but to be honest, I don't find myself using using it as I have a tablet.
The main gift is the size, lightness and speed with how it starts up. The laptop fits in my bag and the battery life keeps it going for some time.
The game changer is Google's Chrome which integrates everything together and better still I can move along different devices and pick up from where I left off.
Because the operating system is integrated into the browser all my stuff is up to date and retained.
Now this is the jewel in the operation of the business. I run everything through Google Drive. I scan my receipts the minute I get it in my hand through an android phone and straight into a folder marked for the month. HMRC accept scanned receipts and Google's Drive through the cloud makes sure I have all the paperwork I need. What about connection? The question is when do I "not" have connection. I continue as normal offline and when I get a signal, it all uploads. This whole cloud based only system is not a problem, its a godsend.
So my tablet, phone and Chromebook all talk to each other and any one the devices can be used to move forward.
Building the website using Wix, did it on the Chromebook. Editing images with Snapseed, do it on the Chromebook. Upload posts onto Instagram and Facebook, do it on them all.
