Let’s face it: business cards are bothersome. They’re expensive, difficult to keep up with, and, thanks to COVID19, are probably gathering dust in your desk drawer. Near-Field Communication (NFC) business cards are entering the market as physical business card alternatives.
This enables users to connect to mobile digital devices and communicate digital data without the need for extra apps.
The cards have the same NFC technology seen in tap-and-go systems such as Apple Pay. Users will be able to exchange contact information and point to websites and online portfolios by just putting a card up to an NFC-enabled smartphone. Here are some of the benefits of NFC Businesses cards:
Reasonably Priced (because no more printing of business cards every month)
Unlike paper cards, digital cards do not need a large investment in printing and design. In reality, for many small firms, the cost of producing cards on paper is too expensive. However, because no printing is necessary, digital cards are free to use. Only the design of the card will cost you money.
Adaptation to New Technology
With an NFC business card, your contact information may be quickly transmitted to a compatible smartphone, eliminating the danger of a missed opportunity due to a misplaced business card. You may even include a photo of yourself so that potential clients or business partners can remember who you are.
It’s one thing to claim to be a social media guru or web design expert, but if you can’t portray yourself as being on the bleeding edge of technology, they’re unlikely to believe you’re as good as you say you are. An NFC business card will make the proper impression, demonstrating that you are technologically knowledgeable and capable of using the newest advances in a way that benefits them.
You may immediately transmit your contact information to an NFC-capable phone by tapping the NFC-equipped business card against it. This not only makes it easy for you or your sales staff to communicate contact information with potential clients, but it also conveys the idea that your firm invests in cutting-edge technology.
Paper-Free and Unlimited Usage
We’ve been utilizing paper business cards for the previous four centuries. The majority of paper is manufactured from wood (tree). The most disheartening statistic is that ‘more than 88 percent of business cards are discarded a week after they are exchanged.’ You can imagine how many trees are being felled.
Save trees while saving yourself and/or your company money on card printing.
You’re handing out business information rather than bits of paper. This means your pockets and bags can breathe again because you won’t be carrying a block of cards in them on every occasion. This means you won’t have to buy business cards every quarter, which will save you money.
Portable and Quick
Your business cards are never out of date. Even after you’ve distributed the card, you can manage what information individuals obtain from it. There is no need to send your cards back to be reprinted if your address or phone number changes. Perhaps the most significant advantage of NFC business cards is that when your card is touched to a person’s phone, you are added as a contact in their phone, eliminating the need for them to lose your contact information. When you are in their contacts, they will see your name and phone number every time they go through their contact list to make a phone call, which will keep you at the front of their mind.
NFC business cards are also the same size as regular paper cards, allowing them to fit neatly into a wallet. Through a wireless link, NFC-compatible devices may also read the information on business cards within a 3-4 centimeter radius. Having business cards that can digitally offer contact information and link to web pages for that extra interactive aspect may definitely set you apart. Stay ahead of the competition and amaze your clients.
Stay ahead of competitors and impress clients
Since digital business cards are not widely used, you may quickly wow clients and stand out with these cards. While others use the traditional paper cards, your company stands out simply because of the digital cards. As a result, make sure that your business card ideas stand out from those of your rivals.
