CardFlick – Your “Virtual” Business Card

Posted March 4, 2013 by Marcy Twete in Networking Buzz
You know as well as I do that I’m a little obsessed with apps. But this is one you’re going to want to get. It begs the question – are business cards out? Imagine this, you go to a networking event, you meet a number of people, and while you of course pass out your business cards, you wonder, “Where will they go?” Unfortunately, most of us who collect business cards from others in fact never look at them again. They go in a drawer or, even worse, in the garbage.

CardFlick is a new app that allows you to create beautiful and incredibly effective virtual business cards. Then, instead of watching your card thrown away, you have the ability to reach out afterward and send a card that won’t get thrown away, but will instead give those individuals a reason to contact you and a quick click to connect with you.

Here’s a recent CardFlick I created using one of their beautiful business card templates:

You can also use your own background images, and immediately “flick” your card to anyone with an email address. To start creating your own CardFlick card and make sure you’re getting front and center with your business card to key players in your industry, click here now.
