What is a digital business card?

Remember back when you used to give out your business card every time you met a new contact, prospect, or potential partner? That practice has long evolved, along with the advent of new technologies, social media, and the digital space; the digital business card has replaced it. It can feel like a foreign concept at first, but it’s not much different from a physical card. So let’s get you acquainted with all there’s to know about digital business cards, how they can benefit you and your company and how you can get one for yourself.

A digital business card is your interactive profile on the Internet. It contains links to all your relevant information, socials, ways to contact you and your company, and any other important info you want to share. It can be a website, a corporate video, sales presentation, your company’s LinkedIn, a link to a calendar to book a meeting or a pdf file. Whatever information you decide to share on your business card, the goal is networking.

Why Do You Need a Digital Business Card?

In our current day and age, where a lot of information is digitally available, it makes sense to provide your recipients with an easy way to get all of your digital information from one source. Think about it; standard paper business cards contain mostly digital channels such as a website, phone number, email address, LinkedIn, etc. So instead of sharing a paper business card with digital links that cannot be interacted with, share a digital business card that your recipients can save directly to their device and interact with it. In addition, a CARTLY business card allows you to measure the performance of your business card through various metrics such as views, downloads and interactions, directly from your dashboard.

A digital business card compiles all the essential information and links to make it easier for any potential business client, partner, or prospect to connect with you.

These interactive business cards allow people quick and simplified access to your contact and business details.

A GreenTech alternative to Paper Business Cards

Digital business cards are a GreenTech alternative to paper business cards. So there’s no need to waste paper printing out hundreds of business cards, only to have them thrown out in less than a week and never to be used again.


Every year, billions of cubic meters of forest are destroyed for the production of finished products such as paper. This undoubtedly contributes to climate change. Digital business cards can pave the way to a future to reduce this insane destruction of trees, save on primary resources and provide a sustainable alternative to paper business cards.
