Paper business cards are dead.
Business card have been around for hundreds of years, but paper cards won’t have a place in a post-COVID19 world. Receiving a germ-ridden object from a complete stranger will soon be a thing of the past.
We’re adjusting to a new normal, and that’s what it’s going to take to successfully navigate life after coronavirus. While face-to-face networking has slowed due to social distancing regulations, networking online has become a new standard. This is a good thing — life is made up of our interactions with others, and being able to meet and connect with new people is how we grow our personal and professional relationships, even if it is over a video call Instead of halting everything we previously did in-person, we’re digitizing our social experiences and gatherings.
As we enter this era of virtually-driven social meetings, paper business cards will become obsolete. However, they’ve paved the way for something new:
What's a digital business card?
Digital business cards are the electronic version of your stereotypical paper business card. There are a few digital business card apps for android & IOS out there that allow you to create and customize your own cards. Digital business cards are more easily accessible and shareable than traditional paper cards, and will soon become the go-to when it comes to exchanging contact information.
Here are some reasons why digital cards will soon replace paper business cards.
1) You can share digital cards with anyone, anywhere
Until now, to share / exchange business card you had to physically touch! NOW: Ezlinq - a digital business card & networking app — provides a seamless way to share contact information with anyone from a safe distance. Ezlinq lets you create and send your digital card to anyone for free, even if they don’t have the app.
2) Digital cards are better for the planet
Did you know that over seven million trees are cut down each year for paper business cards? And with 90% of paper business cards thrown away immediately, that’s a lot of wasted paper. Digital cards produce no waste and reduce your carbon footprint on OUR PLANET!
3) Digital business cards are can be updated immediately
Every time you switch careers, get a promotion, or change your email address, chances are you need to order new business cards.
Digital Business Cards are reusable, and by going digital you can update your card on the go. You can also add richer information to your digital card than you could a paper one. Add a video, your social media profiles, birthdays, anniversaries, and more — your cards are completely customizable, and can be edited quickly at any time.
4) Digital business cards are Covid-19 proof
When we meet someone for the first time, we don’t know where they — or their hands — have been. Digital cards are completely touch-free — there’s no physical exchange required. Exchanging digital business cards with someone halts any possibility of germ exposure. You don’t need to be physically near someone to send them an electronic card!
Most of us are embracing our inner-germaphobe these days!
