As an Entrepreneur and Blogger, I often find myself in conversations with potential clients and with other entrepreneurs. It seems to be almost a given that we will exchange contact information. A business card has been a staple of professionals for many years and the comment “Here is my card” almost always means an exchange.
Sometimes the card is easy to locate; in a pocket or bag or on a desk. Sometimes we have to rummage around and scramble because we just were not prepared to hand out cards. With the Shuffle digital card, it is simple, you can make your business card online. Like everyone today, I always have my smartphone close and sharing my card is as easy as showing a QR code and having them scan the code. Or by texting a link to them. Even better, because I am involved with several different projects I can choose the card that best presents the information I wish to share. A targeted card that highlights the information you are looking for.
I recently received a card from a Realtor’s office that had a hand-written office phone number with the printed number lined out. Other cards have had information lined out or just proved to be faulty. Usually with a hasty explanation that the new cards had not arrived from the print shop. Hey, it does happen. And several times (I design and print my own) I’ve found mistakes on my own cards.
The way to make your business card online
In our more digital age, I have been using the 1QR card from Elify. My designs fit the available templates (custom templates are available), I am able to edit and make necessary changes as needed and I know that any card I have “passed” will automatically be updated and show the correct information.
Plus, the digital card (I more and more think of it as a web-page) is interactive. I can have links, videos and images that I wish to share all in an attractive package. Ever have to type in a link from a business card you have? How is this for easy?
Even more importantly, I can share a dynamic card online with you thru a simple link or by QR code. So, allow me to introduce myself. You can use the link: “My card” or simply scan the QR code:
These cards, these web-pages were designed with smartphone use as the priority. If you are using a laptop, you may be thinking something like “Not that great, I have web-pages that look better.” But check it out on your phone. What sets the Shuffle 1QR above the rest is the smartphone. Designed for mobile viewing, you never have to worry about optimizing your site for mobile use. The 1QR cards already are! Plus, they are easy to edit from your mobile device so you can make changes or updates quickly and easily. No need to log into a back office.
The 1QR card may have got a start as a simple business card but I am sure you will agree that it is a lot more. The amount of information you can include is virtually unlimited. By adding links, images, and videos, you can stand out and be front and center of the competition. A Shuffle subscription includes 10 of the 1QR cards. Enough that you will be able to develop a card for any specific interest, service, or product you wish to promote. There is even an option to get more cards at a discounted price, for when you grow or expand.
I’ve been referring to this as a card but the 1QR is a lot more than a simple business card. It can be a web-page, a landing page, a lead generation and capture page. You can include images, links and videos. There are possibilities for any type of business to incorporate these “cards” to promote any product and any brand.
I use my Shuffle subscription in all aspects of my businesses. From a Mindful Meditation Toolkit to CBD products to Music links to personal greeting cards… The list grows as I find new uses and talk with others who are looking for a simple cost-efficient method of sharing information.
The Shuffle subscription comes with a lot of power in a small package. You get 10 cards that are dynamically updated, your design. Free templates make building the card an easy process. My first card took about 20 minutes to build. These have unlimited sharing; and unlimited campaigns can be made on each card. Three versions of a Lead Capture form can be used: Mandatory Pop-up, Optional Pop-up, and Show at Bottom.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) services include tracking and auto-insert to your Contacts list (with Tags) anyone who completes a Lead Capture. Notifications can be set for a daily summary or as it happens. Reminders and Follow-ups can be added to increase your engagement and conversions. Add in the QRDex (the only digital Rolodex you will ever need), the internal Shuffle Chatter, customizable links, a great team that always steps up to provide assistance then needed, you have a great package to promote you, your brand, and your products.
Shuffle by Elify is expanding and growing. Each month brings new capabilities and opportunities. One of the recent additional capabilities is including the addition of Zoom, the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars across mobile, desktop, and room systems. Zoom Rooms is the original software-based conference room solution used around the world in board, conference, huddle, and training rooms, as well as executive offices and classrooms.
Shuffle is a fantastic tool for small to medium businesses, entrepreneurs and bloggers who are looking for a cost-efficient method for marketing and promotions. How cost-efficient? The MSRP for a monthly subscription is $20.00 (USD) per month. I am very pleased to be able to offer you a discount, making your cost only $10.00 a month. I am so sure that you will see the value of this subscription that I can even provide a FREE 1QR card for you to try out at no risk to you.
