Have you ever experience having a big trouble sending through or receiving some big files to or from someone?
If you are an online operating company this article can help you and your clients to make all transactions easier and faster in terms of sending and receiving files.
That is mostly the struggle of some of the clients of the 3d architect (A 3D rendering company in Australia) . We ask Mr. Carlo Anderson who’s a Sales and Marketing expert.
According to Mr. Carlo Anderson:
“This is a normal issue and sometimes causing delays to some of our projects because some of our clients are not aware that they can now send big files online using a lot of ways. I even remember some of our clients asking if they can send a USB ( memory stick ) to our office address so we can have their files needed for their project.” He quoted
Most of the clients are just aware that they can just send files through email which at the moment just allow us to send around 20-25 Mb Size of file already including the email. Because of this dilemma, software developers had come up with some very helpful ways on how to send big files. We have chosen some software that are mostly being used and are the easiest to manage.
One method is zipping the file or sending them on a compressed zip folder. This method is being used if you still want to send a couple of files through email. To Zip the file all you have to do is to highlight the files you would like to send, right click your mouse then send to compressed zip folder. After zipping the file you’ll notice that the overall size of the files has been reduced. If the file size is still big and cannot fit in your email, you’ll have to try other methods which will be discussed later on. For the recipient to access the files they’ll have to extract the files once they saved the zipped file on their computer.
Another method is Sharing Folders. There are a lot of software that allows us to share folders with our clients. This method is the easiest and fastest way nowadays to transfer files. To enable this, you have to register using your email and install the software on your computer. Once you have installed your chosen software, you can now create a folder, right click that folder and click share folder settings. This will route you to the software’s website which will ask you to put the email you would like to invite. The recipient email will receive an invitation email and yes, that is correct, the recipient of the file should also be a user of the software you use. Once they have accepted the invitation, you can now save all the files on this folder and automatically it will be updated on the receiving party and vice versa. Any changes that both parties will do will be updated on each end. Most of the highly known software being used worldwide is Dropbox, Hightail, Google Drive etc. If you are transferring files almost every day of your lives, we recommend you to follow this method.
There are also easy ways to transfer files without having to install any software on your computer. If you are transferring big files just every once in a while, we recommend you to use this method. This is online file transfer. Using this method, you’ll just need to upload the files online, send it to the recipient email and the receiving party will receive a link to download all the files you sent. Fast and easy! Examples of this is online file transfer website is Wetransfer.
There are a lot of ways to transfer files nowadays and sending files trough mail are now just a waste of time. This methods are now being enjoyed especially by Architects, designers, Planners, Online Stores, 3D renders, etc worldwide.
