The Inter-Active iPhone Business Card

By
Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

Today, I'm introducing a new app coming out for iPhone users, the "iPhone Inter-Active Business Card."  I used ActiveRain and my iPhone to demo how it will work.  Now it's not available just yet, I wanted to see what you think of it first. I'll be doing a follow-up post in the next couple weeks showing you how to get one of these iPhone apps that you can customize for your company and for your iPhone.  I'm really excited about this one, mainly because I got to help design it.  :-)

The "iPhone Bus Card" allows users to Interact with you from their iPhones.  They can call you, email you, or visit your website, all at the touch of a button.  The screens, tabs, links, and graphics you'll see in this video are all customizable.  You can have it link to your office or business address, which uses Google Maps to provide location and directions.  You can add video, or a link to your Blog, it even has the ability for text messaging and more.

My favorite feature is on the "about" tab, which lets you search our site.  You can search nearly 1,000,000 posts, or 140,000 members right from your iPhone.  For the past two weeks, I have been working with a developer who has helped put this all together.  I think in the next week or so, it'll be ready to go public.

I can see how something like this could easily go viral at the iTunes store.  I'm hoping this AR app will be available on itunes soon for you and others to download.  Just remember, you saw it here first.  The first Inter-Active ActiveRain iPhone Business Card.  (Almost sounds like a commercial...sorry)  In the weeks ahead, this could become one of the coolest and most popular iPhone apps in our Industry.  Am I too Optimistic...

I think this will be a great marketing and social media networking tool.  What better way to promote your company, get connected to the cellular world, create an application to perform exactly what you want and need, and allow clients, users, and friends to "Inter-Act" with you on many different levels.  My guess is that this will be a huge hit once it's public and made available to ALL iPhone users.  The added bonus?  All iPhone owners can call any other iPhone owner for FREE! Why?  Because all iPhone users are currently on AT&T.   iPhone Users and Projections.

My goal: Make sure the ActiveRain family and friends get first shot at this, so stay tuned...

I love it and can't wait. It will become my favorite app Brad. I hope it is a free app to AR members. Though there could be tens of thousands of us soon, only a few hundred now I would guess. I sure am glad Gary talked me to sticking with my original choice of the iPhone. I love it, love it ,love it.

I just spoke with Zvika who helped me create this, and it's looking pretty good for a launch next week.  I'm waiting for him to set things up so we can make this public.  There will be some opportunities for our AR members to do the same thing I did here, just waiting for the details and his confirmation now... 

we're almost there.

Myra - Not as excited as I am.

I was just informed by APPLE that the ActiveRain Business Card App shown in the video above, is now available at the iTunes store! I just checked and YES, it's there!!!!!!

And it's FREE!!  WOOOOHOOOO!!  Yeah!  :-) 

From iTunes on your computer: just search "ActiveRain" or click here.  http://itunes.com/app/activerain

From your iPhone:  just click on the AppStore Icon, then the search tab and type in "ActiveRain" then install.

I am totally excited today!!!  Off to write the post about it now...

Brad - I must have been blind because this blog has been up for a long time and for some reason I have looked past it.  For some reason it jumped out at me today.  Pretty neat video and I am headed to iTunes to check out the App.

Sam - you can get one of these apps setup for your business, that's really why I posted this. I wanted everyone to see the options and how the iPhone business card could be created and customized for YOUR business. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks.  :-)

That's Funny Margaret - I just had someone contact me Monday asking how they could get an iPhone Bus Card app created for their business?  They contacted me through the app, it still works great!  :-)
