Google Groups

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I have office 365.  i have a group at Google Groups where i used to post messages.  Usually I create the messages in Word 2013, then do a copy and paste into the Google Group.  As for the graphics, at Google Groups, I insert the picture function.  
After copying and pasting into Google groups, I do formatting and editing, like setting the font size to large, or huge, or set a link to a map at maps.google.com.  or I may insert a picture using the Insert -picture function in Google groups.
My users complain that the posted message when released does not display as I formatted on the screen.  
is there any software out there that could one create a message and then copy to google groups and then post it, so that it will display as it was formatted.  Thank u.

Is there a reason why you need Word 2013 to create your messages?  What happens if you create a message in Google Docs and then paste it into Google Groups and then send your message?  Is formatting still junky?

in response to Kyle, I lost u when u said to create the message in Google Docs.  How do I get to this Google Docs?
Usually I click on New Topic and it then opens an editor, and this is where I paste the text that was created from Word 2013.  But the links I set them manually again, or the pictures too.
Thank u.
