If you are using Dropbox for quite a time now then you must be running out of the free space that is allotted to you right? Well, you should not worry at all because at any time, you can purchase more space but if you are not willing to pay for the space up gradation then you will have to win the free space offer by Dropbox. There are different ways to increase your Dropbox space for free. In this post, we are going to discuss a very great way with the help of which you can increase your free space up to 8GB. This process is called friend referral and you will be required to invite your friends over to Dropbox. For each friend that signs up for Dropbox, you will get 500MB of free space. If you have currently a 2GB of free space then you can win 16GB more by referring to your friends. In this way, your total free space will become 18 GB which is enough for anyone who is using Dropbox for personal use.
However, if you are a business user and want to make a backup of all your data somewhere online so you can access it at any time then you will have to upgrade your account. Keep in mind that account cannot be upgraded for free. You will have to purchase more space from Dropbox.
In order to get free referral space on your Dropbox account, you will have to invite your friends and once they start joining, you start getting free space as well. The process is very simple and easy as there is no rocket science involved. Either you can invite your friend directly by logging into your Dropbox account or you can simply get a referral code and send it to your friends. If you get one of your friends to join Dropbox with your referral, you get 500MB of free extra space for lifetime. I know that this sound really great but there is one thing that you should keep in your mind. Not everyone likes to join Dropbox so you should invite only those friends that will happily sign up for the services.
Oh and if I didn’t mention before then let me tell you that there are different offers for free and paid users. If you are a free Dropbox user then you will get 500 MB per referral and you can invite 32 friends. However, if you are a paid user then you will get 1 GB for each referral which means by inviting 32 of your friends, you can earn up to 32 GB of free space.
If you are wondering that how can you invite your friends to join Dropbox then let me repeat it again, this process is very simple and easy. All you need to do is to go to the bonus tab in your Dropbox account and follow all the steps that are shown on the screen.
This takes only a few minutes. It will be better for you to make a list of all those friends with their email addresses to whom you would like to invite to Dropbox. Send the invitation then see the magic as you get 500MB free space for each friend that joins Dropbox.
