A Digital Business Card, also commonly called a virtual or electronic card, serves the same purpose as paper business cards. The only difference is that they are eco-friendlier and cost-effective. You can add any information that you like, for example:
- Your name
- Your Company’s name
- Mobile number
- Email address
- Your photo or video
- Social media profile
- Even a logo
There are several benefits of using a Digital Business Card for each individual out there. In this blog, we will point the major benefits of using a Digital Business Card for a freelancer.
- Ease: Every freelancer in the world is already struggling to find a potential client. There is no point in adding more struggle to their work. The ease of carrying a Digital Business Card is ultimate. You do not have to worry about updating your contacts, wondering whether the client had saved their contact or not, contacting the client for payment, etc. With a single click, you can access all these benefits without wasting your precious time.
- Cost-effective: As a freelancer, the biggest issue apart from finding work is maintaining finance. Digital Business Cards are extremely cost-effective. You do not have to worry about printing a new set of cards every time there is a change in your location or contact information. All you need to do is update your Digital Business Card and all the information will update with your shared contacts.
- Follow-ups: As a freelancer, you need to get in touch with your clients a lot. Be it for payment follow-ups or waiting for their approval. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the client will save your contacts; or remember where they have placed your card. Most of the paper-based business cards end up in a bin. So it is always better to be safe than sorry. With Digital Business Cards, as soon as your potential client saves your contact details, you will receive the information, and you can easily send them a follow-up for the work discussed.
- Contactless: With Covid 19 affecting the entire country, the work environment has completely changed. As a freelancer, your work was anyway remote; but with the pandemic, even the meetings take place online now. Therefore, the only way to approach a potential client is through a Digital Business Card. This is the only way to ensure that you have a new client, that your details are saved, you are sure about their credentials, and that you have a contact for sending follow-ups.
