HubSpot File Manager Best Practices and Optimization Tips

If you've been an active HubSpot user for longer than 3 months, you can probably relate to this pain: you need to track down that one image file that you know you uploaded back in the day, but you're really struggling.

You try searching, but you can't remember the file name. Then you start clicking into folders, but you can't remember where you put it.

You're starting to get frazzled, so you start clicking through the pagination buttons and finally get so frustrated with how long it's taking to find a single image that you head back to your local machine to find it again and upload it.

Why Use Google Drive vs. Dropbox for Your Marketing Agency

In Episode #7 of Agency Toolbox, we dive into the cloud storage debate and answer the question: "should I use Google Drive or Dropbox? What's the best file management solution for my marketing agency?"

I'm a co-founder of a 5-year old marketing agency, GuavaBox, that started with Dropbox, flip-flopped, used both concurrently, and finally switched over to Google Drive. I wanted to share that information with you as a frame of reference. I've also used the free versions of both tools for a couple years, and paid for both tools (I've been a Dropbox Pro user for 3+ years, and a Google Drive paid user for about 8 months as of October, 2015).

WIth that background in place, let's get into the debate.
