Dropbox…Sharing Files the Easy Way


dropbox

Recently I have discovered “Dropbox“. Dropbox is a free (yes free!!) service that allots you 2GB of storage. Any web user can use it. It allows me to share files that might be too big to email to clients, as well as sharing client proofs…so incredibly easily.

Recently I used it to allow access to a proof of an 88 page book for the Chamber of Commerce. At over 30 MB each, these files are too big to email. Dropbox made it so simple, I gave them access to the file, and they opened it on their computer. Piece of cake!

It also allows me to access my files from anywhere. Once set up its far simpler to use than an FTP site.

It has other uses such as expanding your own storage or for use as a backup. Increased storage is available at a cost.

LOVE IT!

No wonder the American and Canadian “Pickers” are in hot pursuit of them!

Here is a fascinating article and some wonderful photos on the subject.

Lost in Social Media?

When someone mentions “social media” do your eyes glaze over?

This Social Media Cheat Sheet is a fabulous summary of most social media sites…the pros, the cons, how to start, learn the lingo and their audience size. And its all put together in a colourful, well designed chart.

Keep it at your fingertips so when your friends or co-workers “talk the talk” you can at least “fake it” pretty well!

Your Logo

A logo is about what works for your company, not about what you “like” or “dislike”.

Do you need a new logo? That depends on if it is working for your company or not. Coke’s logo has stood the test of time. Pepsi on the other hand has changed their logo over the years. There is no right or wrong.

Changing your logo could compromise your business image. On the other hand, not changing your logo could also compromise your image. Let’s discuss it!
