Have you been hearing things about Google Wave?
Our friend Pamela Cendejas Owner of Second Self Virtual Assistance has written an easy to understand summary of how Google wave can help you in your business.
Thank you Pamela, you always have such good information which really helps!
Last August, I wrote about how Google Wave was a new way to communicate online. Up until recently, Google Wave was trying to figure out how exactly it could work for people and was only available by invitation. Now that it has been made available to the public, how can Google Wave help your business?
While it's not going to balance your checkbook or pay your bills for you, Google Wave does offer some interesting possibilities. It combines email, instant messaging, online document sharing, meeting memos and so much more in real-time online. So, instead of sending emails back and forth to a client, you can ride the Google Wave and converse back and forth online, even sharing documents or videos that your client may need to look over. This allows them to ask you questions while you are online with them, even if you are in different cities.
In addition to the regular goodies that Google Wave provides standard, you can download some extensions to make your Google Wave experience even better. For instance, you can hold phone and web conferencing with the TimeBridge Conferencing extension. Requesty keeps private discussions private by requiring people to request permission before entering a Google Wave session. Share charts through Google Wave with the Chart Gadget extension. And there are many more extensions to choose from to personalize your time on Google Wave.
