Overview of a “Mobile Business Card”


Posted on 18th September, by Flatland Mobile in SMS and Mobile Marketing. Comments Off

Never be caught in a situation where you cannot give out your business card because you don’t have one with you, forgot them in your briefcase, or simply just handed out the last one. Never give out information to someone and not get theirs in return again. The Mobile Business Card is not only environmentally friendly but is always with you. An even greater value is in the database of contacts that you build up over time as you continue to hand out the mobile business card.

What is a mobile business card?

A mobile business card is a unique and engaging way to network with prospects and customers. When requested, your mobile business card is sent immediately to your customer’s mobile phone for easy saving as a mobile SMS business card and personalized mobile webpage.

How does it work?

It’s really simple; the first step is to select an SMS keyword for your mobile business card. Once you’ve done that, the next step is to select what type of information you want people to see when they receive your mobile business card. You have 160 characters, which can include both phone numbers and website links.

That’s all… now when someone texts your SMS keyword to the phone number 72727, they will receive all your contact information via text message, just like a business card, but without all the printing costs. Additionally, they will receive a vCard attachment that can automatically be imported into their contacts, and a link to a personalized mobile web page with additional information.
