Mobile Business Card
What Is a Digital Business Card?Business cards are a staple of the corporate and professional world. The usefulness of a business card is showing all of your contact details in a single, convenient location. Hand one to someone you meet, and you’re more likely to continue the conversation later.
Digital business cards can include all of your contact and social details in a single, convenient finished product to share with recipients.
In the digital era, it’s essential to also use digital business cards to share all of your contact details in one convenient view. Digital business cards are easy to share and perfect to consolidate all of your accounts and contact details in a single view.
Why a Digital Business Card?
The purpose of a digital business card is simple: to help you connect with more potential clients, partners, and co-workers.
I’m sure you’re already familiar with traditional business cards, the printed product that you might hand to a potential client or colleague. It’s a perfect way of networking and leaving your contact details to connect later on.
Digital business cards serve primarily the same purpose. Most of us are on so many platforms (LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and more) that it can be overwhelming to share all of those details at once. That’s where virtual business cards shine.
The point of an e business card is to create a single, simple, shareable file with all of your contact details. That way, the recipient has no friction to follow your account on social media or contact you using the details.
A virtual business card is often shared via email in your contact signature. Instead of mentioning your social details in the body of the email, it’s easier to have them all in an e business card at the bottom in the form of a signature.
4 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT MOBILE BUSINESS CARDS
Digital marketing (email campaigns, SEO, social media, paid media…) are all great tools to use to attract leads and prospects, but they require more money and possible outsourcing. Business cards are something that you can 1) design by yourself 2) afford easily 3) execute by yourself. No matter how much money you spend on your marketing efforts, nothing is going to pay off more than an in-person meeting sealed with a handshake along with a mobile business card exchange.
How many of you have been at a conference, meeting or networking event and strike up a conversation with someone, become interested in what they do, and then they have to leave and you don’t get to finish the conversation. So, your left with thinking “wow Sally was really great, and her business sounds so interesting and like there would be some overlap in the clientele we see, I wish I knew her email address to follow up with her.”
. . .
WELL if you had mobile business cards and were able to exchange details before leaving the conversation, you would have the physical card and information to remind you to follow up with her to continue that conversation and to build the relationship and referral base.
Think about those big-name brands you buy and interact with every day. What are some words that come to mind after hearing those liked, and familiar brands? Hopefully they are good words, and if not, maybe rethink interacting with a company that doesn’t leave you feeling good. So, applying this to you, for your business brand you want to ensure that you are leaving people with a calm, welcoming, warm (or whatever you are hoping to evoke) feeling and not a cheap, cold, or unapproachable (or whatever you are hoping to avoid) feeling. Use this thought frame work when designing your business cards, because your business cards may be the first interaction someone has with your brand.
Just imagine this. You are talking to two individuals who both spark your interest and you want to connect further with them, so you ask them if you could get their email to continue this conversation at a later date. One reaches into their bag and is scrambling to find a pen and a piece of paper to write their email down and the other one reaches for their mobile phone and shows and shares with you their mobile business card Just based on this interaction, who would you want to reach out to first? Showing that you are prepared at all times is a great indicator that you are a true professional.
So now that you’ve learned some new things about mobile business cards and are thinking about getting some for your small business, bet you have some questions that popped up.
