The Cool Free Stuff... But Read The Warning Too
I love designing presentations but I do it for a living. If you need to create a presentation here is a great free resource: 24slides.com/templates.
When I say free I mean freemium, more advanced services are available for a fee but all their presentation templates are free to download and use. They will make you sign up and get your info but this is worth the trade off as these presentation templates are quite good.
Online services that offer free products or stuff are really making you their product. Your info is what they want and they could then sell your info, use it for their own marketing, or add you to their own mailing list. You can never be too sure, data is big business.
Here are three tips to keep you and your information safe when signing up for services like this:
- Use the auto generated password feature on your device and your keychain to save the password to all your devices. Also generate a new password for each service you sign up for.
- Never ever sign up using your social media accounts i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. This allows the service access to more of your personal info.
- To be super safe create a separate Gmail account to use when signing up for all free services like this.
Freemium services like this are great resources for creative entrepreneurs but be savvy and safe when sharing your info, create on!
