How Google Keep Boosts Your Productivity
Have you ever tried using Google Keep for organizing your business, home, or office? I have, and I highly recommend Google Keep for writers and marketers at all levels to help increase productivity and organization — at all levels.
Google Keep has helped me to become more organized. I can find content easily using built-in tools and tricks that Google has installed to make using Keep easier. That’s the good news.
The even better news for docs lovers is that Google Keep plays nicely with Google’s existing suite of apps. As a bonus you can even use Keep as a sidebar option inside the popular Google Docs word processing platform! #winning
The Keep app is free to download on the App Store, Google Play, and can also be easily accessed directly by visiting the keep website on a desktop, laptop, or tablet. The app is multi-functional and highly user-friendly.
If you already have a Google account through Gmail or another connected @Google service, you can be up and running within a matter of minutes.
(New Google users, don’t worry if you don’t already have a Google account.)
Google Keep – Getting Started
Setting up a new Google Keep account is easy — and it only takes a few minutes. New users can create a Google account once you’ve downloaded and installed the app.
Follow the prompts on your device screen to register for a new account. From there, you’re all set to go!
