For File Sharing - Think Inside the DropboxAs a local business owner, you’ve probably amassed a ton of digital assets in your library. From photos of your clients and your business to logos and other brand collateral, these assets are crucial when creating new advertisements for your business. Whether in the form of local signage, banner ads, and even postcards, it is important to remember to maintain a consistent brand image in your messaging. The possibilities are limitless when it comes to putting your unique brand to work.

But sometimes, when sharing these assets with an external party to create some of these materials, it can be tedious and time-consuming to have to sift through your computer (or even your external hard drive) to locate the files.

Dropbox has the solution. Their new Chrome extension makes it easier to search for and attach files from Dropbox directly into your Gmail – all without ever leaving the site. The added benefit of Dropbox’s extension is that it allows you to bypass Gmail’s typical 25mb limit – share videos, photos collections, and more with the click of a button. With over 425 million users and a quarter of Americans using the email service daily, it’s sure to make the pain of file sharing a thing of the past.

Currently in beta, the Dropbox extension acts a lot like sharing files stored on Google Drive:

  1. Simply click the new Dropbox icon next to your “Send” button
  2. Select the file you’d like to attach
  3. The extension will automatically inserts a link into your email
