SavvyCard: A better digital business cardJuly 9, 2015
OK, I admit it… I’m horrible at carrying business cards around these days.
Personally, I find them somewhat annoying, yet I know they’re still a necessity in certain situations. You know, those times when you meet a client or potential client and they ask you for one. I feel like a little bit of a slacker when I say, “sorry, I don’t have any on me”.
That’s why I love the idea of SavvyCards.
A SavvyCard is basically a digital business card you can share through your mobile device. Nothing earth-shatteringly new there really. But, SavvyCards have some additional features specifically for Realtors that are pretty cool.
Not only will you ALWAYS have a business card on you to share, but with some of the advanced real estate features you can:
- Place an icon on your family/friends/clients’ phone that they can use to refer you to their family and friends with one click of the ‘share’ button.
- Provide basic MLS search where every search result contains your branding and contact information.
- Offer sellers a mobile website for their property that can also be spread through multiple sharing channels.
The SavvyCards platform makes it easy to share offline too with simple URL’s and the ability to auto-generate QR codes that users can scan directly into their own mobile devices.
They also provide some basic SEO functionality to help search engines display your SavvyCard when someone is searching for you, and an analytics feature that shows you who is actively using and sharing your SavvyCard.
Overall, SavvyCards are a great way to provide and share your contact info and potentially reach more clients when those annoying little paper cards are nowhere to be found.
