Imagine that you’ve met a new prospective client at an event and get to exchanging business cards. But instead of pulling out a paper card from your pocket, which may not even be there if by chance you forgot to bring one along. What if, instead, you pull out your phone and ask for your newly found prospect for their mobile phone number, and say “I’ll text you my business card so you can save it on your phone”. Most people will gladly give you their phone number if they are truly interested in your product or service. You text them your unique branded URL (link) and once they get the text message, you can casually guide them to open your business card immediately and view it in their phone’s browser where you can then place it on the home screen of their phone as clickable app icon.
What better place is do you know of than to put your business card on the home screen of their phone? Your business card is now part of something they never leave home without and in a place where they can see it whenever they look at their phone! And you’re confident because your business card is now on the most valuable advertising real estate you can put it on – their phone’s homescreen. For this reason, it’s not only better for you, it’s best for your prospect because the last thing they need is another business card to keep track of and since they are genuinely interested in your business, they will probably like the idea that it’s somewhere they will not lose it.
