How to get more Dropbox space from me for free

Dropbox is, without doubt, the coolest and most useful webapp/utility going round. If you don’t use it – click here – and sign up via my referral link. Then I’ll get some extra space.

The referral system is a brilliant way for Dropbox to grow, and it’s at the heart of this post.

Dropbox offers 250 megabytes per referral in online storage space, and everybody has one of those referral links.

I have a Google adwords account. I used it to play around with some ad stuff a while ago. When I signed up, Google gave me $75 of free advertising. This week they gave me another $100 for some reason.

So I set up an ad for Dropbox using my referral link. I’d read about this trick on Lifehacker. 18 free dollars later, I’m up to 6GB in Dropbox space, and I still have a bit of Google money left.

So I’m willing to offer the first five people who ask in the comments here their very own ad with their very own referral link – just email it to me, or post it as a link in the comments. I don’t mind. I’ll put $10 of my google credit towards your campaign.

It seems to work better during office hours in a non-Australian timezone – ie I got most of my clicks overnight on Thursday, our time.

So anyway. Hit me up. And if you don’t use Dropbox already, click here.

UPDATE: The five slots filled up pretty quickly. Sorry to those who missed out.
