This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GoDaddy for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you heard? GoDaddy now offers Office 365, which means you can now have everything you need to run your business anytime, anywhere. I am a huge fan of Office 365, and being a small business owner, the GoDaddy and Microsoft Office 365 coming together makes it easy for a small business like mine to stay connected and get more done!
Aside from all the things I do online, my husband and I own another small business where we restore old cars, Okay, so I am totally busted, he restores them, and I handle all the bookwork, you know the fun stuff lol. When I work on things for my husband I feel like I am walking into the dinosaur ages, and he desperately needs to update. Lucky for us, GoDaddy has partnered with Office 365 for small business owners like us.
I was able to set up my GoDaddy Business Essentials account, which is only $7.99 a month, and comes with tons of great features:
- 50GB email storage
- Sync email, calendar and contact across all of your devices (love this)
- 25 GB secure cloud storage via Microsoft OneDrive for Business (love OneDrive)
- Simple file sharing and online file collaboration
- Unlimited online meetings and HD video conferencing (fabulous, going to use this for sure)
- Office Online Web versions of Word, Excel and more (yepie)
There is a whole lot to enjoy about this new partnership, but here are five reasons to love GoDaddy Business Essentials.
Email, Email, Email
In today’s world, you cannot live without email. Setting up my email accounts was a breeze, it took about 5 minutes, and I had everything set up. Now my husband can finally have a professional email address to give customers, such as Sales@pinkninjablog.com, and we can create as many as we need.
I do a lot of video conferencing, and it’s nice to know I can chat, share, and even video conference with customers anywhere in the world. The best part, it’s totally free!
My husband and I travel a lot. Between blogging and his full-time job we are always on the road, and managing his business on the road has always been difficult. With the Office Online features we can access our online versions of World, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as create, and edit from wherever we are. If for some reason I am out of town, and my husband is home, we can also both access the same document at the same time.
There is also times my husband and my father are stuck emailing something back and forth, and it’s horrible. Let’s just say my mom and I end up taking over because they do not want to sit around and wait to get the email back. They are both going to love this feature, and I am excited for them to use it.
I have to say, I love that I can kiss the days of emailing a file back and forth goodbye.
No advanced IT knowledge is required
I am definably the techy one in the family. My husband is learning, but before we got married I do not think he had turned on a computer. He also isn’t fond of anything that he has to spend to much time learning. Office 365 from GoDaddy is SUPER easy to use. I had everything set up, and ready to go in no time, and my husband was also able to get around nice and easy.
My husband even made a comment on that he was surprised how easy it was to get around. I think he thinks he is techier than he was yesterday, lol.

Thanks to Office 365 and GoDaddy we can have all the cool stuff those big corporations have, at a reasonable price, with 24/7 support. I have been a GoDaddy customer for a while, and have used their support for other matters, and they have always been extremely knowledgeable and helpful, I would assume this support will be the same.
