Using a third party content manager, such as Dropbox, to maintain your site's assets can prove extremely helpful during the overall production of your site. This will allow you to consolidate your assets while also backing up your content. One major benefit of using a platform like Dropbox is that it allows you to access and upload content from any computer or device with an internet connection. This is especially useful for users who want to change or update themes, as your assets will be organized and ready to go at any time. If you'd like to get started with this, you'll first need to create a free account with Dropbox.
Once you create an account, you can create a main website folder for your overall collection of assets.
Now you can create subfolders with your different file types that are separated for better consolidation.
Within your subfolders, you can upload all of your content, such as videos, images, and downloadable files.
Upload your content and ensure that everything was successfully uploaded to your account.
When you come to an area on your new Kajabi site where you can choose a file to upload, you'll now be able to choose the Dropbox option. The first time you utilize this option, you'll need to grant access to your Dropbox account within the file uploader.
Within this option, you'll have access to the folders and subfolders you created in Dropbox.
Once you navigate to the desired folder, you can choose the file you'd like to upload. When you click on this file, it will automatically start uploading from the Dropbox server to your new Kajabi site.
You'll see that your file should have uploaded seamlessly and quickly.
Utilizing third party hosts for content backup and management has proven to be a very helpful tool for quick uploads and finding files.
