Now You Can Throw Those Cardboard Business Cards Away!
With a virtual business card delivered by text message, you will never be without a business card again. From now on, when someone asks you for a business card, you just tell them to text your name to (for ex: 82257), and your Vcard is immediately returned to their phone. They can then easily save it as a SMS business card with "clickable" information such as:
Your Phone Number Your Email Address Your Mobile Website Your Main Website
Now you can have an endless supply of business cards, and anytime you need to change or add information, you simply log in to your account and change it. You never have to throw away hundreds of useless cards, and you never have to wait on a printer again.
In addition to providing your contact information to your customers and prospects in a totally new and innovative way, you can also set this up so that you can capture their mobile phone number at the same time. Now you can send a new card to everyone in your database whenever you change a piece of information. Plus, you now have the ability to send messages to them anytime you choose to do so. Do you see the possibilities there?
It should be clear by now that you can now easily and quickly distribute your business credentials via text messaging, which also brings along a few more benefits:
Organize all of your professional contacts in one place
No more paper equates to being more eco-friendly
Build links to other professionals
Eliminates the old "get lost or thrown away" cardboard cards
Picture this scenario.
You just returned from the convention in Las Vegas with a stack of business cards. Since you want to maintain contact with them, you now face the task of entering their information into your contact manager and cell phone. You may even begin looking them up one by one at Facebook or LinkedIn.
Virtual business cards exchanged through text messaging can help solve a few of these burdensome tasks, if not all of them eventually. By texting your business card to them in the first place, they are automatically placed in your online contact list.
As more and more savvy business people create their own virtual business cards, you will then be able to exchange much more than name and cell phone number. Their Facebook, LinkedIn, RSS, and other resources can all be captured at once.
So the next time you're at a football game, and you get into a discussion with the person sitting next to you, and soon discover they're interested in possibly doing business with you, it won't matter that you never thought about bringing business cards with you. All you have to do is ask them to text your name to (for ex: 82257), and they will instantly have your pertinent business credentials on their phone - in the form of your beautiful brand new virtual business card.
