This is part of an ongoing series dedicated to the tools I regularly use and recommend as an Internet marketer.
What the heck is it?
Dropload.com is an online file delivery service. Have you ever found yourself in the following situation? You've got a digital file to get to someone, but it's way too large to send via email, there's no time to courier it over on CD-ROM, and the recipient is not technically-savvy enough to do the FTP thing. Well thank heavens for Dropload.com, which allows you to deliver massive digital files to anyone with a valid email address.
Why do I like it?
This service does one thing, and one thing only - deliver a large digital file to a recipient - and does it with ease and simplicity. Even the most technologically-challenged recipients will be able to figure out how to get their hands on the file you are delivering to them. Quite honestly, this service has saved my derriere on a number of occasions.
Where do I get it?
You can set up your own private Dropload.com account at www.dropload.com.
How much does it cost?
Dropload.com is free to use, although the service's creators welcome donations. If you find yourself using the service, I would encourage you to give the creators a little something; just think of the courier charges you are saving.
Tell your intended file recipient ahead of time that you will be using Dropload.com to deliver the file to them. That way the recipient can watch for the email from Dropload.com indicating that their file is ready for pickup.
