Digital Card

Introducing the Shuffle 1QR Digital Card by Elify

The Shuffle Digital Card is often referred to as an electronic or virtual business card. And so it is. I have found that it is also so much more. I think of it many different ways; a mini-mobile friendly website, an introduction. The digital card can be used for birthday, holidays, invitations… in fact, it can replace all the paper cards that we usually purchase. Actually, let’s say it can enhance and supplement the paper cards.

Elify provides technology for the small business owner, entrepreneur, and work-at-home professional that fills a void left by Elify digital cardthe bigger business solution providers today. The company mission is simple: “Elevate your Business, Simplify your Life.” The “business card” suite of services Elify offers are: 1QR card, Shuffle, and Wave.

I began using the Shuffle digital cards in February 2019. The sign-up and registration process is easy to complete and I quickly set up my profile and built my first digital card. Then came the fun part of editing (also a simple process) to have the card provide a good experience for when I shared it. I still make edits on it and try to find little improvements to make. No matter when someone saved the link, they always get the current and updated version. Take a look at my personal business card, feel free to use the form at the bottom of the card to critique.

I currently use the digital cards for both of my web-sites and for the businesses I am affiliated with. Samples of my Changing The Future Outcome (CTFO) cbd card for Pets and of my Shuffle interests. I also use the digital cards for birthdays, generic and specific Thank You notes and for other special occasions. Training cards, for specific businesses and for resume attachments are a few more examples for the use of this 1QR digital card and the Shuffle suite.

The 1QR card is a virtual card that acts more like a mobile landing page for you and for your brand. It is simple, fully 1QR digital cardcustomizable, shareable on social media, e-mail, and text messages.

You can share by using links or with the QR Code, sharing is efficient and print applications simple. The 1QR digital card is trackable, dynamically updated, SSL secure, custom URL compatible, and features QDRDex-the only digital card Rolodex you’ll need.

Shuffle is the expanded version using the 1QR card. A complete mobile marketing solution for small business owners. Shuffle digital card

Shuffle provides 10 of the 1QR digital cards (upgrade to 100 cards is available). Additional features include: find and connect with other Shuffle users, design and support your advertising and marketing efforts with trackable Campaigns, follow-up and analytical tools so you can track viewer activity and engagement. Internal communication (Chatter, broadcasts, and Channels) make keeping in touch with your contacts simple.

Building and customizing the 1QR digital card is simple and fast. With templates to fit anyone and any style, personal information can be automatically entered from your profile and edited as you wish. Insert company logo, product or service images with links and videos and you are set. Editing can be done at any time and the card automatically updates to any shared, with an option to send a notification of any update to anyone who has received a card.

Sharing your 1QR digital card is easy, with different options available. You can share by:

1. Thru your Contacts list, with or without Lead Capture, by email or by Link

2. Untrackable link using QR code or Link. Options include sharing on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin)

3. Campaign(s)

Campaigns are simple and efficient. Choose the card, create a campaign in just a few steps and have your code ready to share. Campaigns are unlimited and can be used as you choose and where you wish to focus. One for Facebook, one for Campaigns and Tracking chart for digital carde-mail list, Twitter, Pinterest and so on. Each with a unique share code that is trackable and identifiable. Notifications are given by email or notification individually or a daily summary, your choice.

Tracking analytics are available for each digital card (Card Activity) and for campaigns. The analytics page is easy to understand and provides an overview of cards viewed and link clicks. Different date options are available, with the campaign totals.

The Lead Capture option is available for each campaign and you have the option of 3 different views. Pop-up (before you can view the card) floating, and at the end of the card. You can customize to fit your needs and set notifications for individual or a daily summary. Lead capture information is automatically entered into your Contacts with tags applied about the card and campaign.

You can receive notifications or opt for a daily summary when your digital cards are viewed and when new contacts are entered. Follow-up reminders can be set when you share a card with different time options, never let a warm lead grow cold.

Chatter and Channels is the internal communications platform Elify includes for Shuffle subscribers. Chat is a form of instant messaging with some extra features. You can communicate one on one or in groups. Groups can be of your selections from Contacts or thru the Tier system. Channels are group discussions you can create. This is a form of one way communication, you can inform but replies are made thru Chatter and are private. Broadcast is also available for when you wish to send information to a group.

Elify offers an Affiliate program. I recommend signing up for this, even if you do not wish to promote the 1QR/Shuffle digital Affiliate line for digital cardcards. As an affiliate, you earn a commission whenever anyone subscribes to Shuffle thru your Invite Code down thru 6 levels. Even without actively promoting the card, others may still sign up and you will effectively be receiving a monthly discount on YOUR subscription.

Actively promoting the digital card will not lead to riches but can provide a nice extra income each month. Building a strong list of clients (businesses and individuals) and a good Team to work with you is the keys to success. Here is a link to an overview video of the Affiliate potential.

The 1QR digital card is designed for smart phones but is compatible with tablets, IPads and laptop computers. You can download the application for free thru Google Play and the Apple Store. I found that doing card building, editing, and customization is easier on a laptop but can be done on your phone.

The 1QR digital business card is a stand-alone card, with great features. Pricing is very reasonable and Elify is having a promotion of 1 FREE 1QR card for new users. Regular price is .99 (USD) per month for your first card. You can add up to a total of 10 cards for $1.00 per month per card. Total cost per month $9.00.

Shuffle provides 10 of the 1QR digital cards and extra CRM features for $19.99 (USD) per month. With the ongoing promotion price of $10.00 per month when you take advantage of using my Invite Code: sanders.whitley

You can also upgrade your Shuffle 1QR card count to 100 digital cards for $50.00 (USD). This is good for the lifetime of your subscription to Shuffle and your monthly rate remains at $10.00.

When paired with the Shuffle suite, the 1QR digital card becomes a powerhouse for personal and professional branding. The Free 1QR digital card offer

uses are virtually unlimited. And with the option of having a FREE 1QR digital card (or scan the QR code) to try for yourself, you have nothing to lose, everything to gain.

    I really like this idea, especially from the business card angle, as it’s so easy to send digital media these days to just about every online service and device!

    How many cards are you allowed to construct and design with the regular sign up process of this service? Are you set to just one or can you create several for different businesses?

      Hi Chris, When I first learned about the Shuffle 1QR digital cards, I liked the idea too. Once I started using them, well, I went ahead and got the 100 cards within 3 or 4 days. With the Shuffle account, you get the basic 10 cards and you can have 10 completely different types of cards. Your choice. Get the 100, 100 totally different cards. I think if you need more than 100 you can contact Shuffle Support and arrange to purchase an additional 100 for another $50.00. 

      These digital cards are easy to share and , as it happens sometimes, you can switch between cards to share. Even better, the price per month is what you would pay to have a box of 500 paper cards!

    The Elify digital business card certainly does its job of replacing the usual paper or carton cards for spreading the word about your business. I like the overall design of your demo business presentation on the Elify platform. I still got a question: can I modify my first design/edit of the free card?

      Hi Sebastian,

      The digital cards are great for sharing, sometimes it is easy to forget to take paper cards with you but I never see anyone without their phone!

      With both the free 1QR card and the Shuffle suite, all cards can be modified and edited as you need. Edits are easy and if you wish you can change templates and not lose your information, links and videos. Unlimited edits and sharing!

    Great post and I never heard about this card. For me this means safety, because instead of looking to all your cards, you only need this one, and it gives a good feeling. Also, it is comfortable, and it fits in the modern living. Now one question, how do you see this card evolving in the future? Thanks for sharing!

      Hello Emmanuel, 

      Thank you. I think Elify (the parent company) is still relatively new. It is new to me, only been using it for a couple of months.

      Not having a lot of technical skills, its hard for me to guess how this 1QR technology is going to evolve. I do know of some of the relatively minor changes, such as opening up the receiving side of Channels to include those using just the 1QR cards as stand alone. Almost all my suggestions for improvement fall into the category of already in place. 

      I can see more of the generic type of templates being developed, possibly increased flexibility in the word processing capabilities. 

      Great question! Wish I could be of more help on this one!

    Hello. Very helpful article. I’m sure digital business cards will come very handy as business grows. I’m new to affiliate marketing so i don’t use them yet but im certain it can make a difference to those that have learned to “walk or run” in the affiliate marketing world.

    You are already using them so please tell me what i am missing or can’t see.

    Now that i am thinking about it a bit more, business cards allow you to look more serious and trustworthy so it will be your faster ticket to attracting traffic. 

    Thanks for this interesting post. I’m glad i read it.

      Hello George,

      Welcome to affiliate marketing! The 1QR crd can be of use to just about everyone. I have a generic Birthday card, anniversary cards and other greeting card types. Different cards are set up for use in demonstrating various products,businesses, and professions.

      I don’t think you are missing or not seeing something. We all have our pattern and ways of approaching business and life. Not every “shiny new thing” we hear or read about fits with where we are.

      Business cards, paper or digital, have a purpose and are designed to help us remember a product or a service, a person to contact. The digital card just happens to be a little more adaptable in today’s digital world. And, of course, I do hope to make money along the way.

    I have not heard of digital cards like this before. I think this is a great way to promote a business on the internet. The idea of a virtual business card makes a lot of sense today. I also like that there is a capture page. How is this hosted?

      Hi Cynthia,

      The QR codes and cards are beginning to catch on here in the US. They were new to me not so long ago and I can see a bright future with them. 

      Shuffle is hosted by Amazon.com Inc. since June 18, 2018. Earlier Elifyshuffle was hosted by Amazon Technologies Inc. in 2017. 

      Shuffle, Elify’s newest app, is a Contact Relationship Management (CRM) application. This CRM tool helps businesses capture new leads and create personalized marketing campaigns, which can easily be shared in a variety of ways including: email, social media, and even at networking events.

      I don’t think this answer is very good so I am looking into this a little deeper.

      Hi Clarissa,

      Welcome to blogging and affiliate marketing! I wish you much success and growth as you move forward.

      Glad I could introduce you to the 1Qr Shuffle digital card. Long answer: With the free offer (getshuffle.me/sanders.whitley) you get the one card but you have the option of adding 9 more cards for $1.00 each (total $9.00 per month). Shuffle provides 10 cards and the extra CRM features for a discounted $10.00 per month. There is a one time upgrade to 100 cards (good for the lifetime of your Shuffle subscription. Total cost would be $10.00 per month for 100 cards. I currently have 23 cards built and sharing.Looking forward to increasing my card count.

      Short answer: As many digital cards as you want!

    Okay, I will try this one the moment I understand it clear how it works. I currently operate a small internet cafe here in my place and whenever a student wants to print a file that’s stored in his or her smart phone, we use scanning of QR code in transferring the file from student’s phone to my phone and then from my phone to my computer and printer. Right now, I honestly don’t understand it much how it really work as this QR thing is new to me. Can you explain a bit how those objects or symbols that look like a maze can contain information that can be read by another device?

      Hello Gomer, 

      Honestly I understand it about as well as you do.  but, let me try and break it down a bit. Typically, a smartphone is used as a QR code scanner, displaying the code and converting it to some useful form (such as a standard URL for a website, no need for a user to type it into a web browser). 

      A QR code is detected by a 2-dimensional digital image sensor and then digitally analyzed by a processor. The processor locates the three distinctive squares at the corners of the QR code image, using a smaller square (or multiple squares) near the fourth corner to normalize the image for size, orientation, and angle of viewing. The small dots throughout the QR code are then converted to binary numbers and validated with an error-correcting algorithm.

      Much like bar codes, but for use with smartphones. Great question and I do wish I could explain it further and better. Thanks for asking and check back with us in the future!

    A digital business card? Of course, why not. I had never heard of these cards, until I read your article. Such a cool concept. I am in affiliate marketing, and may at some point want to head into this direction for my business card needs.

    I also think it would be a cool affiliate program to join, as everyone running a business needs a business card at some point. The way everything is shifting to online, this idea will fit right in.
    Thank you for sharing this.

      Hello Coralie, 

      I thought and felt the same when I heard about these digital cards. And there really is no need to wait to discover how useful the cards can be. Have a free 1QR card (getshuffle.me/sanders.whitley) and give it a test. The Affiliate program is reasonable.

    Hi Sanders
    This is really interesting. I love the idea of old-school ideas to engage with customers, and this is a nice twist to that. Business cards are used, of course, for face-to-face business and extending that concept to the virtual interactions is great.
    A bonus is that the extended functionality seems to positively add to the basic business card…without being annoying or distracting.
    The basic pricing seems a little high ($10/card/month) but the upgrade makes it really attractive.
    Great post.
    Cheers,
    Dave

      Hi Dave, I had not thought of it as old school, traditional maybe. Business is done thru building a level of trust. And at $10.00 (with discount) per month for 10 cards, unlimited sharing and the CRM features included; a really good deal. After all, 500 paper cards are about $9.99, and you have to wait to get them.
