Are you looking for a reliable, easy-to-use cloud storage solution? If so, then you should definitely check out Dropbox. In this blog post, we’ll be taking a look at some of the benefits of using Dropbox for your cloud storage needs & we will also cover how to create and use Dropbox direct links.
First and foremost, one of the biggest benefits of using Dropbox is that it is extremely user-friendly. Even if you’re not particularly tech-savvy, you’ll be able to figure out how to use Dropbox with ease. All you need to do is download the app and create an account. Once you’ve done that, you can start uploading files to your Dropbox account with just a few clicks.
Another great benefit of using Dropbox is that it offers a high degree of flexibility. You can access your files from any device with an internet connection, which means that you can work on the go, regardless of where you are. And if you need to share a file with someone else, you can easily do so by sending them a link to the file in question.
Finally, Dropbox is also very secure. All files are encrypted and can only be accessed by people who have been granted permission to do so. And if you ever misplace your phone or laptop, don’t worry – all your files will be safely stored in your Dropbox account, ready for you to access when you get your device back.
As you can see, there are many benefits to using Dropbox for your cloud storage needs. So if you’re looking for an easy-to-use, reliable, and secure storage solution, be sure to give Dropbox a try!
Introduction to a Dropbox Direct Link
A Dropbox direct link can help you share files a lot easier.
I’ve used Dropbox for “Online File Storage” for a while but I just recently found something awesome!
If you are like me and have .pdf’s, .zip’s, or .psd’s that you want to give to your readers there is a big problem. Uploading “bribe” files for constant downloads can bog down your server.
If you can keep the bandwidth on your server low, do it!
So with this new trick, I can store files like those in the “Download Vault” on dropbox. Then with a small change to the file link, you can have an actual direct link to the file without any Dropbox branding or anything like that.
Dropbox Direct Link
In order to get your Dropbox direct link, you have to have the “share link” from Dropbox. When you are viewing a file on Dropbox click on the blue “Share” button. This will open up a pop-up with the “share” options.
At the bottom of this window click on “Create Link”.
After you do that you will have the Dropbox “Share Link”.
For example, the website/app icon photoshop template “Share Link” looks like this …
This will show the Dropbox logo and is not an actual download link.
So in order for the URL to go directly to the desired file, you are going to make one change.
Replace www.dropbox.com with dl.dropboxusercontent.com
This will give you a URL that looks like this:
Now you can use that Dropbox direct link to display content or as a download link from your “Thank You Page” for your bonus downloads.
Like I said before I am using this process to create a Dropbox direct link for every one of my templates or other resources for people to download them.
