Smart Business Cards: a Must-Have Networking Tool for Tech Professionals

Traditional business cards are out, smart business cards are in. To network better and acquire more leads, you need a solution that not only displays your brand but seamlessly connects you with potential clients and partners.

Benefits for Tech Professionals

Smart business cards offer several key benefits for tech professionals. For example, they allow instant transfer of contact information via NFC or QR code technology, eliminating the need to manually type in someone’s details.

In addition, smart business cards enable you to showcase your technical skills and projects by sharing links to your portfolio, GitHub repositories, or personal website on your profile when you tap or scan it with someone’s phone.

Smart business cards also integrate with social media for following up with new contacts. By linking your smart business card to your LinkedIn, you can easily connect with new people and continue building relationships beyond the initial meeting.

With Tapni, you can add your card to your Apple or Google wallet, create a link in bio for social media, and share your card with NameDrop or AirDrop (for Apple users only).

Creating an Effective Smart Business Card

Design plays a crucial role in creating a smart business card that makes a memorable first impression. Choose a font, color, and finish that best reflects your brand values and identity.

Incorporating lead management into your smart business card is also essential. Tapni’s smart business card features a lead capture form when you share your profile with someone which syncs with your CRM, making it easy to organize leads.

To make it simple for new contacts to connect with you online, add a CTA to your smart business card profile. You can adjust your CTA to direct people to visit your website, check out your social media, or book a meeting.

Leveraging Smart Business Cards for Networking Events

Networking events can be a valuable opportunity for tech professionals to make meaningful connections and capture leads. With a smart business card, you can prepare content for sharing at events, which can include a portfolio of your work, a demo of a project you’re working on, or a presentation highlighting your expertise.

Using Tapni can facilitate optimized contact and lead management at conferences. Tapni allows professionals to not only collect your new contacts, but also keep notes on your conversations, which ensures that no valuable connections fall through the cracks.

After the event, it's important to have a follow-up strategy. Sending personalized messages, connecting on LinkedIn, or scheduling a virtual coffee chat are all potential ways to continue building relationships. With Tapni, you can set up automated emails to send your details to new leads, so you never forget to follow up.
