What Is a Digital Business Card?

A digital business card is a digital version, and then some, of a printed business card. Your digital business card offers an instant opportunity to connect with clients, and colleagues through an online platform. Let me explain.

Traditionally, business cards are printed and distributed hand-to-hand. Usually they have your name, contact info, company name and/or logo printed onto a small card. Sharing these cards has been the go-to for networking…until the digital era.

With the advances in technology, many traditional processes, including business cards, have been digitized. Hence the birth of the digital business card. Que the birthday song and throw confetti. This is definitely something to be celebrated.

Let’s explore how a digital business card is different than a paper business card.

Digital business cards honor the traditional approach by including contact and company info. However, everything else has been improved.
