For years experts have declared the death of the business card – with the most recent round of headlines connecting the decline in usage to the rise in virtual events. But as we continue to come back together the question remains – do you need business cards?
In our opinion, the answer is yes but as with most things, not all business cards are the same.
A high-tech alternative
We recently worked with our client, The Village Bank, to roll out custom digital business cards from Linq. Each has a unique QR code which, when scanned, links to information about the cardholder which can be downloaded to a mobile device or accessed later. Through a central hub, the Bank is able to update and customize card information for each employee, as well as see usage information.
An enhancement, not a replacement
The new Linq cards are not a replacement for the Bank’s traditional printed card, but rather an enhancement to be used when appropriate, while also saving room in every employee’s wallet!
