A digital business card is a modern way to share your contact information, however, paper business cards have been around for quite some time; four centuries to be exact. The exchange of these little paper critters are still customary when meeting people for the first time and providing an introduction to your business. Not to mention, business cards are relatively cheap; you can purchase a set for as low as $10.00.
Although paper business cards are great and without question have withstood the test of time, in this modern digital age they don’t particularly enhance one-on-one interactions. Besides being a convenient way to share your contact information, what else do they do? Do they save the other person’s contact information? Can you embed video? Do they integrate with calendar software so you can quickly follow up with people? Unfortunately, the answer is no. In this digital age, you want a business card that is fully functional, provides connectivity and integrates with the systems you love. If you agree, we have a digital business card solution that is perfect for you.
