IT Basics - Part 1 

I get asked a lot of IT questions from both clients and virtual assistants new to the industry. Virus checkers and software updates are high on the list.

So, I got in an expert to cover some of the basic queries.

I've got answers to some IT questions today!

On today's podcast, Bevan Yates from Cactus IT is joining me. Bevan is an IT expert and my 'go-to' guy when anything IT related goes wrong, or I need help with setting up news systems or software.

If you're just setting up a freelance business, there is a lot to think about and it's easy to miss the basics.

In this podcast, Bevan and I talk about the importance of having a virus checker.

There are lots of virus checkers out there to choose from so part of the discussion covers the difference between free and paid for versions.

We also cover why you should never ignore software updates.

It's so tempting to ignore them, particularly if you're in the middle of something. However, by delaying updates continually it could be detrimental to your business and cost you time and money in the long run.

Don't miss part 2 of this two-part series. 

Bevan covers whether it's okay to rely on cloud-based storage such as Dropbox or Google Drive as your back up, and how to keep your laptop or PC in tip top condition.
