It’s estimated that in the U.S., 27 million paper business cards are printed per day. Hundreds, if not thousands, of trees are cut to meet the high demand for printing papers.
Popl is one of the innovative companies championing environmental conservation by providing digital business cards. The cards are not made from paper or plastic material. They are shared digitally through a link or scannable QR code.
Let’s dive in and discuss how digital business cards are helping professionals network better.
What are Digital Business Cards?
As the name suggests, digital business cards are virtual cards that contain all your personal and business information. Popl digital business cards are easier to share and store than paper business cards.
They run on new technology that enables users to share contact and business details on the fly. In addition, the recipient’s contact details are instantly saved in your address book and vice versa.
Interactivity is one main highlight that sets digital business cards miles ahead of paper digital cards. The cards are intuitive, dynamic, interactive, and customizable. You can share more details about yourself, like social media profiles, at no extra charge.
Why Popl Digital Business Cards are the Future
Popl digital business cards go beyond saving the planet; they provide professionals with a brilliant and interactive way of building formidable networks and alliances with experts in their respective industries.
Here are three main reasons to switch from paper business cards to digital business cards today.
One of the downsides of paper business cards is that you have to go to events with a stack of cards. Popl has a dedicated mobile app that allows users to create, customize, and share digital cards seamlessly.
You will no longer need to carry paper cards; all you need is your mobile device, the Popl app, and a reliable internet connection. You also don’t have to worry about running out of cards at a dinner party or conference; you can share the card countless times.
Moreover, the recipients won’t have to input contact details manually. They will be automatically saved on their mobile device when they scan your QR code or click on the shared link.
Built-In CRM (customer relationship management system)
You can integrate your Popl business card with your customer relationship management system to get better ROI from both platforms. Combining the two will help you decide which prospects to contact, when, and the kind of messaging to send.
Popl has a dedicated insights page that tracks how recipients interact with the card. For example, it will show you the number of times your QR code is scanned and the number of clicks on the links. Having this information at hand will help you improve your networking processes.
One of the best ways to set yourself apart is by embracing new technology. Paper business cards are rigid, unappealing, and not interactive.
Digital business cards are designed with the needs and expectations of modern customers in mind. The cards are fully customizable and versatile. You can share more information, such as links to your social media profiles, portfolio, and website.
The additional information will supercharge your marketing efforts by providing clients with more information about your services or products.
Previously, you would have to incur the cost of printing new business cards if you changed your business model or relocated to a new city. By transitioning to Popl digital business cards and Popl Teams, you will never have to adjust your budget for such expenses. You can easily update the cards on your Popl account or mobile app in real time.
