In this episode, Steve will share cost-saving tips when using apps for business use. Most apps have a lower cost level of access, often free, for light users, so the service costs can dramatically increase when more business-level software aspects are required.
These costs can all add up, especially as you scale up or utilise a large staff team. Keep your outgoings down by using these tips.
Acquiring access for all your staff members when required can add up to multiple payments of the high-level access packages for all the apps and software.
When you upgrade your account to a business-level account, all the sub-users under your membership are also charged at the business level.
Set up your Task Management app in one domain but add your staff as guests. Create a new domain for this purpose, and you will not be asked to upgrade and pay under this domain.
Having one super user account and all the others under a separate domain name is more secure because by doing so, you can protect that account from possible misuse or misconduct.
A simple redirect of all critical emails from the new domain email address to your regular email can keep you notified of anything happening without logging in and out of two different email accounts.
1:36 – ‘Often when you upgrade your subscription from a basic level to a premium level, you have to upgrade every single team member so that it can add tens, if not hundreds of pounds each month to your subscription.’
4:47 – ‘I wouldn’t recommend ever sharing your super user account for any critical app. You want to have that control so no one can lock you out or delete the whole account.’
7:16 – ‘Get more value out of the apps you're investing in and get more done without breaking the bank in the process.’
