I have collected thousand’s of conventional business cards over my 27 years as a Salesman. Many of them lived in multiple business card folders buried at the back of my desk drawer never to see the light of day again. Many more were stored in other parts of my office in bundles wrapped inside an elastic band. Some are very basic, maybe made on a machine found in Supermarkets or from one of the online companies where you “design” the card yourself. Some are made of plastic and some are quite luxurious, clearly produced by an organisation with budget and a branding Team to match the companies status. Most are invalid as the connection has moved on, changed role or position or retired. The company might have moved office, changed their telephone number, domain or been acquired.
I still have boxes of business cards with my details on from all the organisations I have recently worked for. Why? All of the information anyone ever needs to contact me can be found wherever my digital persona is present so it makes sense to have a digital business card right?
I met Ian Shapiro of PRamaze recently. When I say “met” we were both on a virtual networking event and haven’t met physically at the time of writing this post. We followed up with a Zoom 1:1 and I was delighted to hear from Ian that he had an affiliate programme in place for all of his business solutions.
The conversation went like this:
Steve: What can I have on my digital business card Ian?
Ian: Short answer.. anything you want Steve. Calls to action, contact information, one-click contact buttons, links to your social media and website, and above all, your card is branded to your requirements.
Steve: OK but can I have images and videos?
Ian: Sure. You can either have them embedded in your card or link to your videos that are already online
Steve: I see but what if I want to make changes?
Ian: You can have as many changes as you want at no charge Steve.
Steve: Will my digital Card be found online Ian?
Ian: Yes Steve, it also increases your exposure to your social platforms including LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram
Steve: How do I use my digital business card?
Ian: Using your card is very easy Steve. But we do give you free access to our video tutorials. We are also never more than an e mail away for any help you need
That was enough to convince me that Glove should join with PRamaze as an affiliate. Other services offered by PRamaze will be covered in another article, these are Reputation Management Software and Linkeroo.
I will eventually dispose of all of the cards I have collected over the years as digital is the way forward and is Eco friendly too.
