The traditional business card
The business card is a great innovation helping millions of people propagate their businesses favorably. The traditional business card continues to rule the roost but is slowly giving way to the next in line – the ‘smart’ business card. Let us have a look at the limitations of the ‘non-smart’ business card in this dynamic, digital era.
Typically, a business card holds a company name, the card holder’s name, designation, address, phone and fax number and the email address. When someone offers you a business card, you store it someplace safe. You fish it out later, refer to it and physically note down the name, numbers and other details in an address book. To talk to the person, you manually punch in the phone number. You compose an email, type in the email id and save the address after sending it. All this makes the traditional business card useful but tedious, cumbersome and a thing of the past.
The next generation business card is the traditional card with a smart tag attached. For instance, just adding your Quick Response (QR) code to your traditional business card is one way of making it a smart business card. Now your business card can be scanned and gleaned for more information.
Your smart phone/tablet is going to come in very handy.
