Free vs Paid Office Suite for business

September 30, 2021

So, you started a business but using a free email.  

There are a few great options for new starting businesses which give you an email like this and not . Does it look much more professional when your domain is on it? It could even increase the replies. One of the best free ones is zoho.com they would give you a free business email with access via the web GUI for up to 25 users, with that you even get access to apps to use for your business the office suite may not be the best but its usable.  

The two paid options are G Suite and Office 365.   Both with pros and cons.  One pro with G Suite is if you already have a domain with google it’s extremely easy to set up.  And it even allows you to use what you already have used at least once which is a Google Account.  One big downside to it is the office suite with it is not as powerful as others and does not have desktop apps.  On the other side office 365 has it all.  A great office suite and or email hosting with 50 GB of space.  You can get either or depending on what your business needs.  

Using Office 365 business premium for the few months I have has really help me improve my business. Was able to fully use office with autosave and outlook email with its powerful calendar with skype business integration and more.  One downside it may be hard to setup at first but once you get use to the setup process it’s not too hard.  Using Office 365 business premium for the few months I have has really help me improve my business.

With the right tools you can work your way up to the pros.  If your light on cash Zoho is a great option for you.  Have a little more money you can spend and or need power office suite for your staff then G Suite or Office 365 with its Microsoft Office included.  All are great and should be able to suit anyways needs for their business.
