    What should be on your Virtual Business Card?

    Virtual Business Card

    By presenting your business card, you will create a second "first impression", the first being the first second that your interlocutor subconsciously judged you on your appearance, your posture, etc... and the moment you hand your business card to him, he will get a quick idea on the design of your card with a “ wow moment “ or just a “ mmmh, thank you ", then once in these hands, he will judge the quality of the paper by its thickness, its roughness, its flexibility, etc... then he will see your information.

    Part of this ritual of exchanging your business card no longer exists with a Virtual Business Card, so how do you make yours stand out from the crowd?


    What information should be included on your VBC? 

    When you imagine or redesign your Business Card to make a Virtual Business Card, you will have to choose the information you will add on it because some of it will no longer need to appear on it while others will need to be highlighted.

    Mainly we think to have on our Business Cards our name, website, email, phone and the logo of the company we represent.

    After adding the main information, you need to save space for your logo and slogan if you have one, because your business card is linked to your brand. 

    Note that if you want a VBC for your Personal Branding, you can also add your logo.

    • An icon

    There was a time when people used to add their pictures on their business cards, it's a great solution that gives their prospects and customers a way to remember who that person was, but with The VBC, you don't need to add it anymore because your profile picture is on top of your virtual business card.


    Social Media Profiles

    Adding icons of your social networks on a paper business card does not make much sense, at the limit in plain text but there again your contact will have to type the address hoping that your link is not too long to type manually to access it, often these addresses take too much space and will destroy the visual balance of your business card.

    But, using The VBC you can add icons of your favorite social networks or the name of the network with their links because they are clickable and will send your customers directly to your pages.

    In fact, the big questions you need to ask yourself are : 
    • Do I really have to put them on my VBC?
    • How many do I need to put and which ones?
    Because nowadays " every user has access to social networks " and to your website through your VBC, they can very easily find you on your contact page, in the footer and certainly on the little icons scattered here and there on your website and rather focus on the overall visual aspect of your VBC?

    Similarly, it is important that you ask yourself the following question: Is my social media strategy optimal for my customers and prospects with content they like and interact with or am I just looking for a few more likes on a page that is poorly optimized for my customers or with too little content to sell my services and products?

    If it's the second, don't put links now, create a real strategy and post content regularly, then add your links, because with The VBC you can add new information about your VBC at any time and notify them of the change you've made.


    QR Codes

    QrCodes on business cards really help people who need to use them because they will be able to directly open your mail, your website and many other links...

    But with The VBC, you don't need to have QrCode on your card anymore because everything is clickable! and so you will have more space to write your important information or play with white spaces.

    Unless your customer has two smartphones, he won't be able to scan your code...!

    By double tapping on your VBC, you open the sharing menu of your VBC and you will have your QrCode to share it quickly.


    White Space

    The whitespaces are the spaces between your elements on your card, they are very important to " let your design breathe " and be readable, too many elements can make the reading complicated and scare away your interlocutor, the first goal of a VBC is to keep his client connected with you.


    Texture Effect

    The touch is no longer to be taken into account with your VBC, no more feeling due to debossing, embossing or cutting on your card.

    Nevertheless, you can add a paper texture to your VBC and make all the visual effects 3d or other to give more effects and without forgetting the possibility to have your logo animated or even your whole background animated!

    You can finally code your business card in Html, Css and Js, isn't it cool?

    Only your imagination will be your limit!
