iPad and iPhone Users Get 50 GB FREE. Get Your #Box50GB Now!

As evidenced by the overwhelming crowds during past iPhone and iPad launches, it’s clear that our lives revolve around mobile. That’s why we’re happy to announce that we’re giving away 50 GB of free storage to anyone who uses a free Box Personal account on an iOS device. That’s right, it’s 50 GB in the cloud completely free, forever. Your 50 GB of storage isn’t just limited to your mobile device – you get it anywhere you use your Box account, like on your laptop at home or your desktop at the office.

This promotion only runs for 50 days, so get your free space in the cloud by following these steps:

  1. Visit the app store and download the Box app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
  2. Log in to your account or register for a new one directly from the app
  3. Start sharing and collaborating in the cloud
  4. (optional but recommended) Tell the world how you’ll use your 50 GB with the hashtag #Box50GB :)



Keep in mind you’ll need to download or update to the newest Box for iPhone and iPad app, version 2.4.3, then log into Box in order to get 50 GB. Something else cool: Your account will have an increased file size upload limit of 100MB instead of the usual 25MB!

We also updated our app with a few features that’ll make your free 50 GB even more powerful. Using AirPlay, you can now wirelessly stream Box content to an Apple TV for effortless projection of photos, videos, presentations and more. Of course, Box gets even better when you use it with others, so be sure to tell your friends, colleagues, and really, anyone with an iOS device to take advantage of this offer before it’s over.

When we originally launched our iPhone app three years ago, we suspected our users would get pretty pumped about sharing and collaborating from anywhere. In addition to the tremendous amount of interest we’ve seen with our own app, mobile adoption across the entire tech industry has been massive. For example, analysts estimate that over 100 million people will have iPads or iPhones by the end of this year; to put that figure in perspective, that’s larger than the entire population of France by a pretty huge margin – nearly 30 million.

The future of mobile is about being free of storage restrictions and closed systems. With this offer, all iOS users will see the benefit of having all of their critical information available at their fingertips, from anywhere. And if you’re already using Box, I’m sure you won’t mind getting some extra room in the cloud. Be on the lookout for tips, contests and other info about your free 50 GB over the next 50 days.

Welcome to the cloud!

The 3 secrets to success for businesses on foursquare

Over 500,000 businesses use foursquare to learn more about their customers, find new ones, and make sure their information is up to date. Here are the three secrets to success for businesses on foursquare:

1. Personalize your foursquare page.
As a manager, you can customize the way your business appears on foursquare. You can edit everything: your phone number, address, twitter name and website, or even add a description that includes details of your delicious pasta dishes. Just log in, head over to your business’s listing, and click the ‘edit’ button.

2. Grow your business with foursquare “Specials!”
There is one constant to every foursquare business success story: foursquare Specials. A Special is a free way to find new and engage customers. Here are a few of our most successful types of offers:
A discount with purchase (something like, ‘get 20% any orders over $10′). It’s a great way to push your sales higher.
Something for free (for example, ‘enjoy a free dessert if you buy an appetizer and main course’). These are often low cost and high impact.
Special treatment (one of our favorites is at a zoo: ‘check in on foursquare for private access to the penguin feeding’). These have no cost and create a great connection.
Reward your best customers (the classic Special is, ‘free coffee on your fifth visit’). It’s like a digital punchcard.

Setting up a Special is free, takes just a couple of minutes, and can yield amazing results. And, on foursquare, your listing will include an orange ‘Special’ graphic, drawing in more members from our 10,000,000-strong community! Get started now at foursquare.com by logging in and clicking on ‘Manager Tools.’ Or click here to find more information about Specials.

3. Identify your best customers by diving into your data
You also get full access to your Merchant Dashboard, which tells you interesting information about your customers, like the time they check in, their demographic information (like age and gender), what are your most popular hours, and who are the customers that visit most often. Use this information to grow your business; try running a Special during your slow period to find new customers (for restaurants, we recommend a Special for the often-empty late lunch hours). If you haven’t turned on the Merchant Dashboard yet, log in at foursquare.com, go to ‘Manager Tools,’ and enable it for your business. If you manage multiple businesses, each one has its own ‘enable’ button.

Thanks again for managing your business on foursquare. With over 10,000,000 people on foursquare, these tools are a powerful way to grow your business. We look forward to hearing your success stories!
