Many things in life are almost free. We’ll pay a little for a convenient service. But those nickels and dimes add up. Luckily, there are some things you don’t have to pay for.
There are ways to find commonly used services for free. You just have to know where to look. That includes faxing, file transfers and text conversion.
So, save some dough by using these tools:
Send big files — Email makes it easy to share many kinds of files. Unfortunately there’s usually a size limitation. It’s also not the most secure method around. These services offer a much better solution. Upload large files to a secure website. Share access with only the people you choose.
Send and receive faxes for free — Does anyone actually send faxes anymore? Well, yes. Sometimes you do need to use a fax machine. But why keep one around for those rare occasions? You can send faxes for free from your computer. FaxZero makes it easy.
Answer any question — Google Search is a great tool. You can find information and answers to questions quickly. What do you do if you’re out and about? Try Google SMS. Google SMS can be accessed using any cell phone. Just text a question and it will send back the answer.
Edit PDF files for free — Scanned documents and PDFs are common in an office environment. They’re easy to use. That is, unless you want to edit them. To do that, you’ll need to convert them to another format. PDF to Word will do it for you.
