Benefits of having a Digital Business Card

👍 Uses technology that is ALREADY AVAILABLE ON EVERY SMARTPHONE regardless of Brand and Operating System (i.e. Android, IOS, Windows).

👍 A person receiving a Digital Business Card or your website visitors ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TYPE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION in their Smartphone Contact App. This eliminated the risk of errors.

👍 WITH JUST ONE CLICK OR TOUCH they are able to SAVE THE DIGITAL BUSINESS CARD INFORMATION to their 📱 💻 🖥 Contact's App.

👍 You and your website visitors CAN SHARE your Digital Business Card via email, text messaging and social media Apps.
