Your business card normally contains your name, address, business or job title, and contact number – in short, the very basic information about you. But given to its pockets-size, how much can you add? Think what if you could add more? What if you could include your website details, email address, direction, or branch locations using vCard QR code? All of these without spending much or increasing the size of your card? Exciting, right? Well, business cards generally act as the first point of contact and tell a lot about you.
You can now connect with clients at a personal level and ensure the recipients store your contact details on their phone right away with a very simple and cost-effective digital tool – QR codes.
Tell your people how to reach you through vCard QR Codes
Business cards create a first impression. They also decide whether your contact details will make to the recipient’s phone book or not.
To ensure this happens, you must add an engaging element that piques your recipients’ interest right away and prompts them to store your details… without having to punch in your contact number or website URL.
With Dynamic vCard QR Code, you can add your name, your job title, your CV, your photo, fax, email, websites, social media links, and other professional details on your business card without cluttering it.
How is it possible? For that, you must understand what Dynamic QR Codes are
A Dynamic QR Code is an advanced version of QR Codes that allows users to store editable content. Upon scanning the code, you will be redirected to a landing page that contains your contact detail in the form of vCard. All the end-user has to do is scan the code printed on the business card and save the vCard on their phone. Pretty simple, right?
No need to open the phone book app, type your contact information, ensure the spellings and digits are correct, and then click Save.
It is even simpler to generate dynamic QR Codes online through QR Code Generator. Dynamic QR Codes can be used to provide as many details as possible besides Vcards, including PDF files, Google Maps, Documents, Resume, Social Media Content, Pictures Gallery, Menus, and many other things.
Imagine storing all of this information in your 2 x 3-inch business card?
VCard QR Code increases the chance of the recipient saving your contact details on their phones by 80%.
Scanning a Dynamic QR Code is very simple too – as simple as taking pictures. Most modern smartphones come with in-built QR Codes. They are also known as Google Lens. You will find Google Lens on your camera app. It is enabled by default. You have to open your camera app and hold it in front of the code. Upon doing it, a pop up will appear displaying the content of the QR Code along with the accept and decline options.
Take your business cards beyond vCard QR Code
Business cards are generally static with very limited information. But with a QR Code on it, you can easily connect your offline customers to your online world. For instance, use Pictures Gallery or Video QR code on the business card to show your completed interior decoration projects in a trade fair; use a Google Maps QR Codes to direct your customers to your physical store; use social media QR Code to engage your customers through impressive content, and use PDF QR codes to share digital menu cards to your walk-in and delivery customers.
Can you use Static QR Codes on business cards too?
Yes, you can.
You can generate free Static QR Codes online at QRCodeChimp. But there’s a huge difference between static and dynamic QR Codes.
In static QR codes, the content or information is directly embedded in the code, which makes them non-editable or static. Once a static code is created, the content cannot be changed or modified. To edit it, you must create a new code and eventually a new business card altogether.
On the other hand, in dynamic QR codes, the content is not directly loaded in the code. Dynamic QR codes store only the URL which contains the actual information. The URLs are generally shorter than what you see on websites but manage to hold a lot of information. You don’t have to create a website to get these URLs. Redirecting URLs can be generated at QR Code Chimp.
Therefore, since only a URL is loaded into the Dynamic QR Code, you can change the content of the URL anytime, as many times as you want, without generating the code or print the business card again.
So, your dynamic QR Code-printed business card can hold your vCard today, share your social media address tomorrow, and contain your work portfolio the day after based on your requirement.
Using Dynamic QR codes
One of the major advantages of using a dynamic QR Code is that besides being editable, these versatile codes are also trackable. With AR integration, you can track the scan activity of the codes, such as how many times the codes were scanned, from which location it was scanned the most, at what time it was scanned, etc.
There’s more to it. Dynamic QR codes are less dense and more attractive when they are scanned. They improve scan ability form a great distance too.
