If you are a business card user, this is for you. If your company have marketing teams who use business cards, this is a must.
Did you know that it takes roughly a minute or two to manually encode all the contact information in the business card into a smartphone or computer's contact list? The more information you put in your business card, the longer it takes to encode the information. A minute of encoding may not sound like a big deal, but it actually does if you are managing multiple business cards, a problem one would face after attending a business meeting, a conference, or a large business gathering.
Kontakme's simple solution involves adding a short URL in your business card called a contact link in a discreet location of the card. By doing so, your business card has been upgraded to allow receivers to quickly save your contact information. On the average, receivers of your business card can now save your contact information into a contact list in as little as 15 seconds. Big improvement, right?
The contact link opens a digital business card that also stores your contact information in a standardized vcard format. This can be downloaded and saved to any contact list. The receiver of your card has 3 other options on how to save your contact info. It can be saved on the smartphone's home screen, on Kontakme's online contact list, or by sending it via email to any email address.
Unlike other solutions that may require you take a picture or scan the business card using a scanning application, our solution uses any regular Internet browser to open the URL. No special app to install or no need to save the pictures of the business card that you took, both procedures consume valuable memory space in the smartphone which we are trying to avoid.
There are other benefits like being able to save the contact link in an indestructible contact list which you can access from any Internet enabled device. Getting your own contact link takes a few minutes. Once you get your assigned random contact link, you are good to go. If you want a personalized contact link, you can also get one anytime. With your new contact link, the next time you order a new set of business cards, request your card designer to add your contact link somewhere in the card. Make it as discreet as possible but readable. Here's an example of the card with the contact link printed at the lower left corner of the card:
You also need to learn a short phrase when giving away your business card. Assuming that your contact link is at the lower left corner of the card, you can say "You can save my contact information quickly by accessing my contact link at the lower left corner of the card" while pointing to your card. "You can open it using any Internet browser." It needs a little practice and some getting use to. Once the service becomes part of the mainstream, you won't event have to mention it.
Get your contact link now and make this world a better place. It's free, practical, convenient to use and costs almost nothing to implement. It's the one upgrade that your business card has been waiting for decades especially at this age of the mobile Internet and smartphones.
