You’re an entrepreneur, a go-getter, trend-setter, a ninja-guru-master or just a person who talks to people on a daily basis, maybe visit a conference or two, attend a bunch of seminars? Hey – me too! That means you’re sharing your contact information with a lot of people in a single month, just like I do. So, how do you do it?
Business cards are cool. Especially those gold-plated shiny tokens of one’s public status or position in the ever-growing market. It’s always funny to me that we still need them in the 21st century, but fact is we do. They are just…so cool. And they tend to remind the ones we give them to that we may be someone special and that we may share a common cause or interest. But we don’t always use them. We forget to bring them – God knows I always do due to frequent change of accessories – or we simply share our Twitter account or LinkedIn profile, or even type our phone number to someone’s smartphone.
A couple of days ago a company I work with published a fancy new iOS app that could totally change the way we share our contact information. They call it “Share My Contact” and it’s a kind of a virtual business card with a lot of options for selectively sharing your contact information in different formats.
