Ok Champs, in this fast-moving world, going from event to event, flying out and making connections, we are always on the go and we never want to miss a moment of connecting to potential collaborators, or clients.
Those moments require us to be prepared with the quintessential asset, a business card, but there is often that dreaded moment when you are on fire and networking your ass off and then you run out of your business card, we can use digital business cards to still make that connection!
A digital business card is just a way for you to connect with more people, in a single simple interface, it also allows you to build your Client Relationship Management database or C.R.M ( ill do a post about CRM’s later)
Let me share some of the platforms I enjoyed:
This platform not only allows you to build an e-card to send via text, email, QR code
Also, you can scan cards you engage and build a database, where you can even group by the event or conference.
Love this platform because it is hyper-visual!
You don’t have to have the app to receive the card.
This platform is especially great because it also allows your company to have a uniform digital card to share too! All with a consistent template and brand!
So Switchit has a really great set of features, of course, you can build your card, and you can adopt it for your whole company.
It also has a free version which is great if you are starting on a budget.
The real key feature here is the ability to add video and content to those that receive the card from you, it also doesn’t make the recipient beholden to using the app, they can still see all the content.
Ok champs, these are the three platforms that I played around with, but if you have any others let me know! I just think it’s a great option to have a digital go to when you are networking, just in case you run out of your paper cards or you forget your cards at home, It happens to the best of us, but we never forget our phones!
