Ever heard of Dropbox? It’s my favourite Cloud storage provider, a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. It has kept increasing in popularity over the years it has been around thanks to its elegance, invisibility and fantastic API.
The only pitfall to their service is that they only provide 2gb of free space to users. To get more space, users have to spend crazy amounts. Sure, $9.99 a month for 100gb is great, but what if I don’t need 100gb? What if I don’t have $100 just lying around to throw at my computer?
So I went for a walk to calm down. A virtual walk. And what did I find? I found that Dropbox has a Get Space section @https://www.dropbox.com/getspace. After completing some of the tasks laid out there that included linking my Facebook and Twitter accounts I found I had quite a bit more available storage space. That lasted me a whole 5 days. I had to share my previous year’s high-school work across all of my devices and found my Dropbox folder maxed out again! Angry, what did I do? I took another virtual walk.
Before long, I found that Dropbox has a great Get Started section @https://www.dropbox.com/gs. Surprisingly I had completed all of the steps listed bar one, “Invite some friends to join Dropbox.” interested, I set out on a mission to invite my friends. Inviting many people proved somewhat too difficult, as most of my friends either had Dropbox already, or were simply too scared of technology to assist me in pursuing my gains.
Too curious, and after only successfully inviting two people, I scoured the web for ways to gain referrals. And to my success, I found somebody who was offering upgrades as a service. Check it out by following this link: http://goo.gl/E0pdeU I threw it in a fiverr gig, and here it is! My way of saying ‘thanks’ to the community. I’m offering Dropbox upgrades of up to 18gb on fiverr! Make sure to follow the steps outlined in the links above for additional space.
Thanks for reading. Comments below! Have you found any other ways to increase your Dropbox storage??
For a limited time, and thanks to a lot of requests, I’m offering 80GB of referral storage on copy.com, a similar service to Dropbox with higher referral rewards, as well! Check this out @http://goo.gl/DHjnrE
