Do you use Dropbox?
Since working within social media and other disruptive-based technologies, I discovered the importance of not carrying many documents and working nimbly with one device, or computer. From the start of social media usage, I witnessed the importance of working off one device as one “personality”. In short, every tablet computer one uses will house one client and work information about the client.
Dropbox can help streamline this process….especially for digital marketing professionals and small businesses.
Dropbox is a secure on-line cloud storage application offering users freeware, individual, and business based accounts. Dropbox’s on-line cloud storage can be used to house your documents, videos, photos, and offers collaborative tools and file security for project management. Recently, Dropbox allows all WordPress blog system files to be backed up to their cloud storage. Dropbox is a web responsive application. Easily accessible via many smartphones, tablets, laptops, and computer workstations. Dropbox is password protected. As long as you have an Internet connection and and the Dropbox app, one can access this material from anywhere!
To some reading I know Dropbox is not new. Many have an account, but don’t fully use the account because the need isn’t apparent. Let this post serve as the reminder that the evolution from computer workstations to tablets is underway. Now, Mobile applications are responsive and communicate and collaborate faster with your important data.
Last year, I couldn’t place a PowerPoint presentation on many tablets without a questionable app. Now, I can find freeware applications that let me operate the presentation on an LCD screen, and allow me to share the presentation with a dozen people and communicate through a mobile application!
Again, let this post serve as a reminder: the way we use and interact with data is changing with the arrival of stronger, capable tablet computers and nimble cloud storage abilities
