Free Google Docs Tutorial – 25 Tricks To Unleash Your Productivity (2023)

At Filestage, we make some of the best collaboration and review software for teams that create visual content. But when it comes to our blog content creation and related collaboration needs, we use Google Docs. In fact, many startup and agency content teams (of all sizes) use Google Docs for creating their blog or written content.

Google Docs makes creating, reviewing and revising content super-easy. It’s interface doesn’t come anywhere close to the slick, distraction-free writing apps out there, but the fact that all your content is backed up in your Google Drive — even if you’re on a flaky internet connection — really helps focus on the writing.

Add to this a user-friendly mobile writing experience (via the Google Docs app), add-ons, and templates —and Google Docs pretty much becomes any marketer’s go-to content tool. Let’s now look at answers to some of the most common user questions about Google Docs and then see some very useful and free Google Docs business templates.
