I heard earlier this year that Google will be pushing out the ability to upload, store and organize any file type within Google Docs. This is totally cool because sometimes you simple don’t want to share Word Docs or PowerPoints.
I’m always looking for free stuff, especially free online storage sites!
Now, I’m not too sure that the official name is GDrive, but I don’t care. It does what I need and that is to share images and zip files to friends and family…just as long as I don’t go over 250mb (I’m cheap). If you need more, then Google asks for $0.25 per GB per year. Not too bad a price if you ask me.
I’m always looking for new marketing opportunities when stuff like this gets released. I’ve come up with a list of things can could be used to take advantage of the public sharing of Gdrive documents:
- Image marketing optimization
- Image sharing
- moving big zip files from pc to pc
- text file marketing optimization
- music sharing
- video sharing
Some neat stuff to consider. One thing I did notice, or perhaps I can’t find this feature, is how do you tag files in Google Docs or how do you add descriptions? If anybody knows how to do this, please leave a comment :)
I’m so looking forward to seeing how GDrive transforms into a powerful internet marketing tool.
