Feb 4, 2022
In today’s digital age, where everything is stored in the cloud, you may think that flash drives have gone the way of the floppy disc. But we’re here to tell you that these handy little hard drives are far from obsolete! With a myriad of uses, storage options, and designs, there’s a flash drive for everyone.
Let’s start with the basics: what is a flash drive?
Flash drives are small external devices that plug into the USB port of your laptop, phone, camera, or other tech to store and save digital data. The great benefit of flash drives over cloud storage is that flash drives are a physical, tangible storage option – when you keep documents or photos on a flash drive, you always know where they are.
Any media that you can store on your computer’s hard drive can be stored on a flash drive, also known as a thumb drive, USB stick, flash memory, or memory stick. From word documents to MP3s and everything in-between, the flash drive is a portable solution for storing important information.
Did you know? Many flash drives have the option to pre-load data! With promotional flash drives, you can promote your business and even provide documents and media to your customers with ease. Add your order forms and documents or upload a catalog or video so that when they plug the drive into their device, they’ll have immediate access to the info you want to share!
Even better, flash drives are easy to use for even the most technologically challenged among us. They’re simple and intuitive – most people know how they work without ever being “taught” how to use one. All you have to do is plug the drive into your device, and typically a window will pop up with the drive’s contents. Then, all you have to do is double-click a file to open it or click and drag items to your desktop to save them. Easy peasy!
Flash drives are compatible with all sorts of devices – they’re not limited to computers only. Most tablets, phones, cameras, and even gaming consoles work with them. That means when you choose to promote your business or organization with a flash drive, you can rest assured that they’re useful for everyone.
Promotional flash drives are available in a wide variety of styles. From the classic stick-style drive to ones shaped like credit cards or even custom shapes, there’s sure to be a USB stick that’s perfect for your brand.
