Digital Business Card

Digital Business Card

Digital business cards are on the rise. This is an electronic way to share contact information. This article will cover what digital business cards are and the benefits of going digital. 

The way we connect with others is constantly changing. Perhaps the COVID19 pandemic accelerated this, but it also made it necessary that people turned to virtual modes of communication more and more in line with the new social distancing norms. 

Business cards have been around for a few hundred years and they have been useful to share and exchange contact information. However, with the recent changes in technology and lesser and lesser dependence on paper, also perceived to be an environment friendly initiative, digital media has gained a strong hold in business and traditional communication means are becoming obsolete.  

What is a digital business card?

Digital business card serves the same purpose as the traditional one. It is an online way of sharing contact information. Digital business cards can be created on an iPhone, Android, or computer. They are more affordable than the traditional paper business cards. Digital business cards can be customized, designed, and shared with anyone. There are no space constraints with digital cards—you can add as much or as little information to your card as you’d like. In addition to your normal contact information (like your name, company, designation, Logo, email, and phone number) you can enhance your card with a photo, social media handles, links and more. The point of an e business card is to create a single, simple, shareable file with all of your contact details.

What are the benefits of Digital Business Cards?

Here are a few benefits of going digital. 

Ease

Today your smart phone or your laptop is equivalent to your office. This is especially true with businesses which rely more or less on Information Technology and Internet. You can easily change information on your card as and when your profile changes. In the rare case that there is a typing error, there is no need to worry; with digital technology changes can be made in a more agile and a cost-efficient manner. 

Eco-friendly

Traditional paper business cards are not very eco-friendly way to exchange contact information. 90% of Business cards are going to end up in trash. In today’s age of Smart Phones nobody uses information stored in paper format. Information to be saved and retrieved, it has to be portable on your smart phone. Also, a switch from paper to digital media means we are saving millions of trees. Thus, digital cards are a practical and a wiser approach in today’s age. 

Reasonable

Digital business cards are more reasonable than traditional paper business cards. There’s no need to spend thousands of rupees a year on paper cards that are going to get thrown away sooner or later. The money saved here can be channelized to some other important aspect of your business. 

Contactless

In the current situation we are trying to adjust to the new normal. Physical contact is decreasing and is steadily getting replaced by virtual modes of communication such as Zoom, Google meet, Gio meet etc. The market place has now shifted from a real location to the screen of your laptop or your smart phone. In sync with these developments, digital cards are the new way of exchanging business identity. They can be shared through various mediums such as email, chats, QR codes etc. Another benefit is this information get stored automatically unlike a physical card which could be carelessly tossed around and forgotten.

Top Three Reason to Sign Annual Maintenance Contract (AMC)

Top Three Reason to Sign Annual Maintenance Contract (AMC)

Top most reason is “Peace of Mind”! But this is more of a result of AMC so we will list reasons behind it:

  1. Websites could go down for any reason like software or hardware upgrades, hosting issues. Hosting companies may not even proactively report it to the client. So you may not get alert for days unless someone specifically reports it to you. Your leads will simply go away with a bad impression.
  2. Your website might get hacked and you need someone to fix it. Many times, hackers leave a really insulting message that might hurt your reputation.
  3. You might want to make some changes but the person who developed your website is no longer reachable. But you can’t hold him responsible since he delivered the website per contract but there was no AMC in place. 
  4. Bonus: Your team has made some changes by mistake and your website has stopped working. There was no backup! This is a huge responsibility. We have invested heavily in tools to ensure your website is safe.

We have a blog dedicated to backups: https://fairshare.tech/2020/07/26/top-three-questions-to-ask-your-it-partner-about-backup/

We also offer AMC for businesses who have not developed website from us. In this case the domain and hosting can still remain with your other IT partner (we will not be responsible for renewal and related costs). Please choose any one of the below plans (domain and hosting costs not included):
