Virtual Business Cards


Thanks to Steve Gardner at Steve’s Vac Shack in Willmar, MN for this tip.

There’s a new service called BusinessCard2 that allows you to create a virtual business card and put it on your web site, or attach it to your email.  It’s based on the principal of the VCard, meaning that your customer can download it directly into their contact managing software.  The advantage of BusinessCard2 over the basic VCard is that you can add a photo and additional information about yourself or your company.  In fact, the more information you add, the better your chance of placing higher in the search engines.

The service also allows you to create more than one card.  For example, maybe you do volunteer work and you’d like to have a card with your home phone number rather than your work number.  You can do it.  Or, maybe you do both retail and commercial sales.  Again, you can create two different cards.

It looks like a good service.  I’ve added a link to my virtual business card in the right hand column.   The basic service is free with an additional charge if you want your card to be listed more prominently.  If you decide to check it out, let us know how it works for you.
