New apps added to Office 365 Business Premium & Microsoft 365 Business

As has been customary for quite some time, Microsoft has once again added a number of apps that make it even more of a no-brainer for growing businesses. Below are some of the recent additions, that help business owners manage their day-to-day operations, from any device or location, thanks to the cloud-based nature of Office 365.

Microsoft Listings

Getting noticed online these days could mean the difference between growing or shrinking as a business. With 97% of consumers looking online for reviews of local businesses in 2017, and 12% looking for a business online each day, it’s critical that your business is recognizable online. With Microsoft Listings, you’ll be able to easily keep your business listing up to date across major sites such as Bing, Facebook, Google, and Yelp. This way if your business hours change, for example, you can change them within Microsoft Listings and the changes will propagate to the major sites.

Aside from making changes to your site listings, you’ll also be able to monitor your business profile in Microsoft Listings to see a number of views and reviews of all your listings from one easy-to-use dashboard. This makes it much easier to keep a pulse on your online reputation in today’s technology-driven marketplace.

Microsoft Connections

E-commerce companies have been leveraging the power of email marketing for decades. With the average person checking their email about 15 times each day, using email marketing can be a great way to boost sales to both new and existing customers. Microsoft Connections makes it extremely easy for organizations to create professional email marketing campaigns based on a set of pre-defined templates for customer referrals, newsletters, announcements, and much more. As your mailing list grows, you can easily segment it to better target your customer base. And thanks to Microsoft’s robust analytics, you can also track subscriber activity to see how each of your campaigns is doing.

Microsoft Invoicing

If you’re looking for a quick way to bill clients and collect payments, you’re in luck thanks to Microsoft Invoices. Keeping track of payments and sending out invoices can be extremely tedious, especially if you’re relying on complex spreadsheets and billing software. Microsoft Invoicing allows you to create professional looking invoices and estimates quickly, so that you can get paid. Microsoft Invoicing integrates with PayPal to allow you to accept credit cards online, and a connector to QuickBooks allows you to sync customer and product data and send invoice information to your accountant.
