Sharing large files like videos or graphic-intensive documents used to be painful. Depending on the size of the file, email was impractical if not downright impossible. FTP sites were the most common alternative, but these were often cumbersome to access and use.
Fortunately, a number of file sharing tools and services have been rolled out over the past few years which speed and simplify the process. These tools make it easy and (relatively) secure to share large files with another individual, co-workers, outside vendors, or any ad hoc group for collaboration.
File sharing tools are invaluable not only for content marketing professionals and consultants (e.g., collaborating on a video or ebook), but across the organization: in product design, finance, supply chain management, application development, and other functional areas.
