Best Upsell is Education #Dropbox #marketing

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

I’m just writing a (quick) post cos I find this stuff confusing. I pay about 100 bucks a year for Dropbox. Not sure why. I guess I feel more secure – even though I suspect Dropbox is no more secure than iCloud LOL – having some documents in the cloud, duplicated.
