January’s top tech tool is quickly becoming the rage among my peers and colleagues. In today’s digital age, there is often a need to send MP3 files, video files, PDFs and a host of other files back and forth to clients, team members, etc. Sometimes those files can be pretty wieldy because of their size, and it becomes more and more difficult to send them back and forth. In comes Dropbox! Dropbox allows you to share files of any size with as many or as few people as you want, simply and easily. It’s so simple and so convenient that it boggles the mind. All you do is sign up for a free account and start sharing. The system gives you the ability to share single files as needed; but what I find most beneficial is the ability to create and share individual folders with as many people as I want. All I have to do is drag (or copy) and drop the file(s) from a folder on my computer into the shared Dropbox folder and voila! The file magically appears in the Dropbox account of whoever I’ve shared it with. This makes it incredibly easy to share files with clients, committee members, team members, family, friends … you name it. It is especially useful for sharing files between my own computers and electronic devices like my iPad and smart phone. The basic Dropbox file is free; and each time you invite someone to join Dropbox and they open an account using your affiliate link, you get 250MG more space for your own account. Since Dropbox also has some paid accounts (I pay $9.95 a month for a 50G account, you can also upgrade to one of the paid accounts and use Dropbox as a cloud backup system that not only keeps your files safe and secure, but allows you to drag and drop those files from your desktop to your laptop to your iPad to your smart phone or any other of your devices. Like I said … it’s so simple and convenient that it boggles the mind!
