We are all familiar with the concept of the business card. You have a stack of them in your wallet and every time you meet someone who is interested in what you do, you hand one over. They act as a timely reminder of what you do and what you offer.
Now it is possible to have a virtual business card as well, thanks to a new online service called Beename. The demo card you can view online shows you how dynamic your business card can look. Taking up the entire screen, it combines a dynamic background image that is relevant to your business with a card in the middle. This has three tabs, relating to your general contact information, an About Me tab and a third section for a QR Code if you have one.
In addition to this, you will find a strip across the bottom of the screen. This is where you can provide links to your social media profiles. This means people have a range of ways they can interact with you online or contact you directly.
The online business card also comes with a dedicated URL that can be your own name if you wish. Finally, there are a few tabs along the right side of the screen encouraging people to share your card with others via their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
There are other services like Beename online but this company has a great business plan, the site is polished and it’s worth checking out.
