I rarely carry cards anymore as they seem to just end up in the trash. At a recent open house I handed out a few just to have them handed back to me. I had put all the OH documents into a DropBox folder and made a QR Code for it, which was very well received. I had 10 beautifully printed packets in clear binders to pass out, and went home with all ten.
I decided I am done with business cards. While they can be beautiful, it's a pita to type the info into your phone. Half the time we type it wrong, the other half of the time we can't even read the pertinent info because people make their logos or pictures take up the majority of the card, resulting in 8pt or 6pt font for phone numbers and emails. Oh then of course there's the white on black making it even harder! Even when I was 25 I had a hard time reading them.
I have 2 businesses so my cards are two sided; so I needed 2 QR codes. Today I decided to make QR codes for me, my partner, and my construction director (I am also a builder). I love them!
Things that I love about them!
1. Just scan to save to contact!
2. They are shareable!
3. More details about your business can be added.
4. Save trees!
5. Update as needed so no more obsolete contact info.
6. Make business cards if you like, still.
Everytime I see the ads for those expensive new fandangled business cards I cringe, because making QR codes is free! But if you want to keep them live, at least with the company I am using, its $10/mo. Not bad given their usefulness! Why bother to have a business card if it is obsolete or gets lost?
