Do more with your business card


Category:General
Jun 17, 2011

I've seen a change in business cards in the last 1 - 2 years. They are becoming more professional and stylish, have you noticed it? I've also noticed that more people are now printing information on both sides of their card. This makes perfect sense, what a waste of valuable real estate by just printing on one side of the business card. So where do we go from here?

Well, I've added a QR Code to mine. A QR Code or quick response code is a little square black and white barcode that can store a lot of information. It is scanned by a reader on a smartphone and performs an action based on the content.

For example, you can store your entire vcard on there which can include such things as company name, address, phone, fax, email address, website address, etc... Now just imagine the next time you go to a network meeting, you will just need to hold out your business card so that everyone can scan it and in 1-click all your company information is stored on their phone.

p.s. by far the best reader for the Android is the ZXing Barcode Scanner, http://code.google.com/p/zxing
