What might seem the most surprising to some people is that The Cloud simply cannot provide all of the same benefits USB flash drives can provide. Instead, while they complement each other well, one is not going to make the other irrelevant anytime soon. To learn more, click this link: USB Flash Drives Are Still Popular In 2019
Over the last several years, significant improvements have been made in USB flash drives to improve their read and write speed. For users, this has created an impressive decrease in the amount of time it takes to transfer files between computers and USB flash drives. On top of that, there are several reasons why many professionals still have a need for USB flash drives, and some couldn’t do their jobs without them.
Rather than go into that though, here is a list of ways many people still use USB flash drives in 2019:
- Promotional tools – USB flash drives are excellent for marketing and branding, and we encourage our customers to customize them so they’ll be even more effective for those purposes.
- Data storage – They are practically the safest place to store data and they are easy to transport just about anywhere.
- Resumes – A resume on a USB flash drive is a tech savvy way for applicants to help themselves stand out above others.
- Portfolios – They provide an excellent way for photographers, artists, designers, and other professionals to store and share their portfolios.
- Catalogues – They allow companies to make a digital version of their product catalog and conveniently share it with their most likely customers instead of printing an extensive product catalog and then having to pay for ways to get it into their hands. This can save thousands of dollars, and USB flash drives are easier to distribute.
- Training – While it can sometimes be expensive for companies to gather employees all in one location for a live training, they can instead share training videos on USB flash drives so their employees can watch the videos whenever it is best for them.
- Orientation – Putting welcome letters, employee handbooks, and other important policy information on a USB flash drive allows users to access it or transfer it to any computer for quick and easy reference. Also, when policies or procedures change, updating the content in a USB flash drive is much easier and less expensive than creating, designing, and printing new documents.
- Testimonials – Video testimonials more impactful than written testimonials (even if motionless images are included).
- Recruiting – Video tours and sales pitches are often more impressive when presented in USB flash drives.
- Keepsakes – Photos, special events, certificates, and other keepsakes fit safely on USB flash drives and are much easier to store and access when a trip down memory lane is what a user desires.
- Musical performances – Fans and musicians can keep performances on USB flash drives to share and watch them whenever they want.
- Sharing presentations – Having a copy of a presentation on a USB flash drive is an excellent way for companies to allow an audience to review it, especially if they weren’t able to attend the live presentation.
- Reliability for repairs – USB flash drives can hold bootable versions of operating systems. Because of this, if a hard drive fails, a user who has a stored version of their computer’s operating system on a USB flash drive doesn’t have to take their computer to a repair shop to get it fixed. Instead, they can usually make the repairs themselves.

Having owned an advertising magazine in Utah, I’ve worked in marketing for over twenty years.
I started writing for MediaFast in 2014. The first time I held one of their video brochures, I thought something like, “Wow! This blows away our magazine and any other print advertising I’ve ever seen. This is like a TV commercial, and I’m holding it in my hands. Amazing!”
Since then, video brochures, video mailers and video boxes have become leaders in marketing performance. It’s a privilege to write about them. I also love MediaFast—with its top-notch product quality, industry leading customer service, and all of the wonderful people I get to work with.
