Here’s a business tip for you… I walked into my assistant’s office to find the computer taken apart on the office floor. A problem with the computer can make my life flash before my eyes. As it turned out she was just installing additional memory that was necessary for a video series we are producing. On a regular basis, my assistant reminds me that I really don’t need to worry about losing data on the computer because we use an offsite computer back up service.
Let’s face it, your computer system is your business. Vital business information is contained inside your computer system. Imagine if you would lose all of the data due to some unfortunate circumstance with the computer system. It would do potentially disastrous harm to your business.
Backup is one of those things that people say they do or someone in the office is assigned to do. But I can’t tell you how many times I have heard CEOs, presidents, entrepreneurs and business owners retell stories of how they thought their computers were backed up only to find out when they had a hard drive problem that their data wasn’t backed up.
Don’t take any chances. Look into backing up your computer system offsite TODAY. If your computer crashes you can easily retrieve the data. If you accidently delete an important file or document you can easily retrieve the information. If there is theft or an event such as a fire or a flood, you can easily retrieve the data. If you forget to back up, don’t worry, because most offsite back up services are set up to automatically retrieve data every day.
By backing up your computer system, it’s just one less thing you have to worry about in your business when you back up offsite every day. There are many back up services available today. Find one that fits with your business needs and sign up today. It’s quick and easy. Backing up your computer offsite is one of the best business investments you will ever make.
Remember: It’s not enough to just use an external hard drive for backing up your computer at the address of your company. Automated computer back up of your business files is a critical and necessary service in today’s business world. Worth every penny of investment.
PS: If you’re using a tablet or a smartphone exclusively for business, include as part of your daily back up service contract.
To your success!
