Paper Business cards are great, but it is estimated that 88% of people throw them away because they don’t need your services at that time. Why not make a digital version instead?
Virtual business cards, also known as digital or electronic business cards, are becoming increasingly popular for promoting yourself. You can create a digital version of your physical business card that will allow you to share information with others without having to carry around physical copies.
You can also create a QR code that links directly to your virtual business card that houses your website, social media profiles, or any other page on the web. This makes it super convenient for anyone who wants to contact you without typing anything.
