Google Sites is a structured wiki- and Web page-creation tool offered by Google as part of the Google Apps for Work productivity suite. The goal of Google Sites is for anyone to be able to create a team-oriented site where multiple people can collaborate and share files.
Multi-level user access — we have 3 sets of permissions in Google Sites: Owner, Editor and Viewer.
Owners have full permissions to modify design and content of the entire Google Site, whereas editors cannot change the design of the web site. Viewers can only view the site and are not permitted to make any changes to text or otherwise.
Google Apps for work include Google's most useful solutions such as Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Calendar, Gmail, and Google Docs. These solutions can be used by regular users for free. Google Apps for Work also introduce business-oriented features such as custom email addresses for your company domain and 30 GB of storage for docs. This is a cloud suite of solutions and it takes a different set up from regular office solutions by having hosted the information in Google’s data centers
Create Brand Identity for Google Sites and Google Apps
Before designing your google apps, take a look at your current company google site and identify the key factors that make up your brand. What are the characteristics of your business site? Who are your customers?
Logo is the face of your company in Google Sites and Apps
The logo and name of your company is the face of your business. When you land on a mobile app that doesn’t have a logo on the homepage, app icon and elsewhere throughout the app, it immediately screams for you to delete the app from your device.
Make Sure Every Page Includes the Right Color in Your Google Sites and Apps
We see too often where a company creates a striking google sites homepage, but then you jump to the other pages in google apps and it includes a completely opposite color or design from the homepage.
