Wilson explained that the best thing to do to avoid losing your information if your hard drive crashes is to have a separate hard drive with your data. Another option is to save your information in the cloud with companies such as OneDrive from Microsoft or Dropbox, which offers versioning, that is saves different versions of a job so you can go back to an earlier version and make any changes to that older version. OneDrive & Dropbox are very reliable, has continuous backups and is very redundant.
He also suggested to switch to Office 365, a subscription-based product that allows you to be always up-to-date with Microsoft Office. Office 365 also offers data services like Dropbox.
Wilson explained that you blogging in addition to email campaigns will make your presence in the web more relevant. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are social media tools that can help you be more productive.
Thanks Wilson for all the useful information!
