How I Organize my business files using Google Drive

Currently, my files are stored on both my computer and on Google Drive. I also use ClickUp to store some of my text-based information. Below is the current overview of how my Google Drive is set up. In this post I’m going to share with you how I store my files using Google Drive.

My main folders are Clients, General, Growth, hello next brand and Learn. 

Growth Folder

The growth folder is my main folder where all my business related files are stored. Starting with blog content, here I store all of my blog post content. Although now I keep all the content in ClickUp I save them on the drive as a backup just in case. I also save most of these files on my computer first, this is why at the end of each month I will transfer all new files to my Google Drive account. 

Brand Elements: Here I store all of the branding essentials for my online business. They include main and sub-logos, favicon, logo marks, etc. I also keep older versions of my logos in this folder as well.

Sales: I keep all of my template ideas and files in this folder. Since I’ll no longer be using DropBox to share templates when someone purchases I will also store them in this folder on my Google Drive. I also use ClickUp to store most of my written content for my templates.

Website: All of my website files and images are stored in this folder. Every single image I use is stored here. I also store all the written content for each of the pages here. Files for paid plugins that I’m using on my website and any themes I may have is also stored in this folder. 

Client Folder

Honestly, I don’t use this folder as much for ongoing client work. This folder is where I keep all the original versions of content for various stages and where I store completed client work for download. 

I’ve since simplified my client onboarding process and started to use HoneyBook. With HoneyBook I store ongoing client work such as emails, proposals, contracts, brochures, invoices and more. All the currently working files I will store on my computer because it’s easier. After the client project has been archived I will then upload to Google Drive. 

hello next brand & learn folders

In my hello next brand folder I store files related to my online video series. This includes, voice memos, clips and any images used. I also store the final full video versions of each episode and all graphics used on my Instagram feed. The general folder is where I store content that currently don’t fit into one of the categories I have. 

My learn folder is a gem of mines, this is where I store all content from courses that I’ve taken and free content that I feel is worth saving for future reference. Last year I signed up for a business bundle and the amount of content, information and resources I’ve gotten was well worth the money spent. I also store all of the login information for courses I’m about of in nicely organized spreadsheet. 

And this my friends is how I currently organize my business files. This post has made me realize that my file storage goes hand in hand with my ClickUp. Will be working on a new post solely on how I use ClickUp to store content for my online business. Stay tuned to the blog for when that post appears.
