What is a Digital Business Card?

A digital business card (also known as virtual business cards, electronic business cards, smart business cards, and digital visiting cards) is an online means of sharing contact information.

You can create a digital business card on an iPhone, iPad, Android, or computer, and they’re often more affordable than their paper counterparts. Like typical business cards, electronic business cards can be customized, designed, and shared with anyone.

There are no space constraints with digital cards—you can add as much or as little information to your card as you’d like. In addition to your standard contact information (like your name, company, email, and phone number), you can enrich your card with a photo or video, a logo, social media profiles, badges, PDFs, and more.

Do I need any coding knowledge to create my card?

No. There is absolutely no need to put yourself through programming courses to use wCard. And you certainly won’t need to hire a web developer either.

wCard uses a drag-and-drop editor and requires no prior skills or knowledge to use. We’ve made sure that even a complete beginner will be comfortable using all of wCard's features.

All of the extensions and tools that are offered on our business card-building platform are designed to be as simple and quick to use as possible.

Unlike other card builders, you won’t need any technical knowledge or technical skills to create a new card with wCard. In fact, you can get online with just a few clicks.

Our drag and drop interface has all the features you need as a small business owner or professional to get yourself online.

Can I use custom domain?

Yes, we encourage you to do so. Although you can publish your business card under a subdomain that we will provide each card for free, having a website with a bespoke domain adds layers of trust and identity to your brand.

You can connect your own unique domain with wCard.

Connecting a domain to your business card is easy. Follow the on-screen instructions on wCard’s dashboard and visitors will be able to access your site via your domain in just a few hours.

Is my digital business card SEO friendly?

You might have heard that SEO is extremely important when it comes to ranking your website high up on search engine results. And it’s true.

Every card created with wCard will be search engine optimized (SEO) by default. Yet, if you want more control over your card, e.g. changing meta titles and descriptions we allows you to do that too.

Plus, our page speeds are lightning-fast, ensuring that your website or store always reaches peak performance and doesn’t scare away potential clients.

wCard is designed to increase your online presence on search engines with a combination of SEO tools and templates designed for search engine optimization right out of the box.

Will my digital business card be mobile friendly?

Each and every card that you create using the wCard will be mobile responsive by default, but more than that, it will function on any device, not just on a mobile device.

We know it’s essential to all small business owners to be where their visitors are – and they’re increasingly on mobile devices – so we’ve focused on making sure our digital cards are mobile optimized to give the best experience to your card visitors.

Although most of the mobile responsiveness will be taken care of by our platform automatically, you can also see the preview of your card on mobile screen while editing to make sure that your card looks the way you want it to.

It’s one of the design features that will help you build a beautiful card, generate leads, and drive traffic.

The Ultimate Guide to Virtual Business Cards

Cardtapp - The Ultimate Guide to Virtual Business Cards

In This Article

In today’s digital era, traditional business cards are gradually being left behind, making way for a more versatile and dynamic alternative — virtual business cards. Understanding the concept and benefits of virtual business cards is the first step to grasping their full potential for networking and marketing. This comprehensive guide will take you through everything you need to know about virtual business cards and how to make the most of them.

Understanding Virtual Business Cards

In today’s digital age, it is essential to adapt to new technologies and trends. One such trend that has gained popularity among professionals is the use of virtual business cards. These digital representations of contact information and professional details serve the same purpose as traditional paper business cards, but with added convenience and functionality.

What are Virtual Business Cards?

A virtual business card is a digital representation of your contact information and professional details. It serves the same purpose as traditional paper business cards, but with added convenience and functionality. Virtual business cards can be easily shared and accessed on mobile devices, making them more flexible and readily available to clients, colleagues, and potential business partners.

Imagine attending a networking event where you meet numerous individuals who are interested in your work. Instead of fumbling through a stack of paper business cards, you can simply share your virtual business card with a quick tap on your smartphone. This not only saves time but also leaves a lasting impression on the recipients, as they can easily access your information whenever they need it.

Benefits of Using Virtual Business Cards

As the world becomes increasingly digital, virtual business cards offer several advantages over their paper counterparts. One of the most significant benefits is that virtual business cards are environmentally friendly, reducing paper waste. In a time when sustainability is a growing concern, opting for a digital alternative can contribute to a greener future.

Moreover, virtual business cards allow for greater customization options , enabling you to showcase your brand identity and personality. With traditional paper cards, you are limited to a small space for your contact details and a generic design. However, with virtual business cards, you can include your logo, choose from various templates, and even add interactive elements such as links to your website or social media profiles.

Additionally, virtual business cards eliminate the risk of running out or losing physical cards . How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you desperately needed a business card but realized you had run out? With virtual business cards, this problem becomes a thing of the past. You can easily share your contact details with anyone, anytime, without worrying about running out of cards or misplacing them.

Furthermore, virtual business cards offer a seamless integration with your digital lifestyle . In today’s fast-paced world, where most communication happens through smartphones and other mobile devices, having your contact information readily available on these platforms is crucial. Virtual business cards can be easily saved to a recipient’s phone contacts or added to their email signature, ensuring that your details are just a few taps away.

Lastly, virtual business cards provide valuable insights into their effectiveness. With traditional paper cards, it is challenging to track how many people actually engage with your contact information. However, with virtual business cards, you can gather data on how many times your card has been viewed, shared, or clicked on. This information can help you gauge the effectiveness of your networking efforts and make necessary adjustments to improve your professional connections.

In conclusion, virtual business cards offer a modern and efficient way to share your contact information and professional details. They are environmentally friendly, customizable, and eliminate the risk of running out or losing physical cards. Embracing this digital alternative can enhance your networking efforts and leave a lasting impression on potential clients, colleagues, and business partners.

Creating Your Virtual Business Card

When it comes to creating your virtual business card , there are several essential elements that you should include to facilitate effective communication and make a lasting impression. These elements will not only provide recipients with the necessary information to contact you but also help bolster your online presence and provide additional avenues for engagement.

Essential Elements to Include

Start by including your full name and position. This will help establish your professional identity and make it easier for recipients to remember who you are. Additionally, including your contact details, such as your phone number and email address, is crucial. These details will enable potential clients or collaborators to reach out to you easily.

Furthermore, it’s a good idea to include your website or social media handles on your virtual business card. This will not only provide recipients with more information about your work but also allow them to connect with you on different platforms. It’s important to remember that having a strong online presence can greatly enhance your professional reputation.

When designing your virtual business card, it’s essential to keep the overall look clean and professional. This will ensure that the card is visually appealing and easy to read across different devices and screen sizes. A cluttered or overly complex design can distract recipients from your core message and may even discourage them from reaching out to you.

Choosing the Right Design and Layout

The design and layout of your virtual business card play a crucial role in making a lasting impression. It’s important to opt for a design that aligns with your personal brand or business identity. This means choosing appropriate colors, fonts, and imagery that reflect your style and values.

Remember, simplicity and clarity are key when it comes to designing your virtual business card. A clean and uncluttered design will ensure that recipients can easily find the information they need without any confusion. Avoid overcrowding the card with excessive graphics or text, as this can overwhelm the recipient and dilute the impact of your message.

It’s also important to prioritize functionality when designing your virtual business card. With a significant portion of interactions happening on smartphones and tablets, it’s crucial to ensure that your card is mobile-friendly. This means optimizing the layout and design to ensure a seamless user experience on smaller screens.

By considering these essential elements and choosing the right design and layout, you can create a virtual business card that effectively communicates your professional identity and makes a lasting impression on recipients. Remember to regularly update your card with any changes to your contact information or online presence to ensure that it remains current and relevant.

Distributing Your Virtual Business Card

Via email and social media.

Email and social media platforms are effective channels for sharing virtual business cards. When emailing your card, consider including a brief introduction along with a link to your card’s online location. This introduction can provide recipients with a glimpse into your professional background and expertise, making them more inclined to click on the link and view your virtual business card. Additionally, including a personalized message can help establish a connection and make your email stand out among others in their inbox.

When it comes to social media platforms, there are various ways to distribute your virtual business card. One approach is to incorporate your virtual business card into your profile, making it easily accessible to anyone who visits your page. This can be done by adding a link to your virtual business card in the “About” or “Contact” section of your profile. Another option is to share your virtual business card directly with your connections or followers. This can be done by creating a post or sending a direct message with a link to your virtual business card, accompanied by a brief explanation of its purpose and the benefits it offers.

In addition to sharing your virtual business card on your own social media profiles, it can also be beneficial to engage with relevant professional groups or communities. By actively participating in discussions and providing valuable insights, you can establish yourself as an industry expert. When the opportunity arises, you can introduce yourself and provide your virtual business card as a convenient means of contact. This can help you expand your network and connect with individuals who may be interested in your products or services.

Through Networking Platforms

Networking platforms such as LinkedIn provide dedicated spaces to upload and share your virtual business card. These platforms offer a professional environment where you can showcase your skills, experience, and accomplishments. By uploading your virtual business card to your LinkedIn profile, you can ensure that it is easily accessible to your connections and potential employers or clients who visit your profile. Additionally, LinkedIn allows you to personalize your virtual business card by adding a background image, customizing the layout, and including additional contact information.

While LinkedIn is a popular networking platform, it is worth exploring emerging networking platforms that specifically cater to virtual business cards. These platforms are designed to connect individuals who are interested in utilizing this modern approach to networking. By joining these platforms, you can connect with a broader audience and potentially discover new opportunities for collaboration or business partnerships.

Overall, distributing your virtual business card through email, social media, and networking platforms can significantly enhance your professional presence and increase your chances of making meaningful connections. By utilizing these channels effectively and engaging with your target audience, you can maximize the impact of your virtual business card and open doors to new opportunities.

Virtual Business Card Etiquette

In the digital landscape, it’s crucial to be mindful of proper etiquette when sharing your virtual business card. Avoid overwhelming individuals with your card and prioritize relevant interactions. Share your card after establishing a meaningful connection or when explicitly requested. Personalize your message when sharing your virtual business card to demonstrate your interest and create a stronger impression.

When it comes to virtual business card etiquette, timing is everything. You don’t want to come across as pushy or intrusive by sharing your card too soon. Instead, take the time to engage in a conversation and build a rapport with the person you’re interacting with. This will not only make the exchange of business cards more natural but also increase the chances of your card being well-received and remembered.

Furthermore, consider the context in which you’re sharing your virtual business card. Is it a networking event where exchanging contact information is expected? Or is it a casual conversation where the focus is on building a personal connection? Understanding the appropriate timing and context will help you navigate the virtual business card exchange with finesse.

Following Up After Sharing Your Card

After sharing your virtual business card, it’s essential to follow up to nurture your new connections. Sending a personalized email or LinkedIn message expressing your appreciation for the interaction and mentioning specific points of discussion can help solidify your connection. Be genuine and consider offering value, whether it’s sharing relevant industry insights or connecting them with someone in your network who might benefit them.

Following up is not just a formality; it’s an opportunity to continue building a relationship. Take the time to reflect on your initial conversation and find ways to add value to your new connection’s professional journey. Maybe you came across an article that aligns with their interests, or perhaps you attended a webinar that touched on a topic you discussed. Sharing these resources shows that you’re invested in their success and reinforces the positive impression you made during your initial interaction.

Remember, networking is a two-way street. While it’s important to nurture your connections, it’s equally important to be open to receiving support and assistance. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your new connections when you need advice or guidance. Building a strong network is about fostering mutually beneficial relationships, and being proactive in seeking help when needed is a sign of strength, not weakness.

Reduced card printing costs and environmental impact

Since you can edit the contents of your virtual business card, you don’t have to reprint your business cards every time your information changes. You can edit your virtual business card and continue using the same business card.

And for online channels, you can simply share your page URL through email, chat, social media, and more. 

More effective networking

A virtual business card positively impacts your bottom line by helping you network more effectively.

What is a Digital Business Card?

A digital business card, also known as a virtual business card, is a modern take on the traditional business card. It’s essentially a digital file, usually a cloud-based record, that houses crucial contact details, a direct link to your business website, and social media accounts, serving as a one-stop access point for your business’s digital presence.

The content of a electronic business card is highly customizable according to the business’s needs and owner’s preference. Some opt for a simple layout with basic contact details, while others prefer a more comprehensive approach, incorporating elements like user biographies, professional photographs, geo-location, and other relevant information. This flexibility allows the business card to provide a broader view of the business.

Sharing a virtual business card offers flexibility with several easy-to-use options. You can integrate it in your email through attachments or signatures. Another option is to share the URL of your digital business card via text messages for easy access. You can also generate a QR code for your card that allows prospects to save it directly to their devices with a simple scan.

Some digital business card apps even offer the option of sharing cards through Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. This feature can be incredibly convenient, allowing contactless sharing of your digital business card whenever both devices are NFC-enabled and in close proximity.

Electronic business cards are swiftly gaining momentum in the contemporary business landscape, due to their numerous advantages over the traditional paper options. These electronic cards serve as a more environmentally-friendly, cost-effective, and convenient mode of disseminating contact details.

With a wide array of customization options and the ability to incorporate an extensive variety of information, digital business cards have the potential to drastically enhance your professional networking experiences.

Furthermore, these cards provide you with multiple avenues for sharing, thereby ensuring your prospects can access your details effortlessly.

What is included when you send an electronic business card?

When you dispatch an electronic business card, it encapsulates all the contact details and relevant information you’ve incorporated during its creation.

Typically, an online business card creator app allows for the inclusion of your photo, contact details, website links, social media links, videos, and more. However, it’s important to note that the extent of data you can include on your digital card can fluctuate depending on the service provider’s guidelines and features.

What should be on a digital business card?

A well-crafted digital business card should encompass vital contact details such as your name, business name, logo, phone number, email address, and website URL, as well as social media profiles.

Additionally, it can be advantageous to include a call-to-action button to motivate recipients to take a specific action, such as scheduling a consultation, visiting your website, or even following your social media profiles.

Are electronic business cards worth it?

Absolutely! Electronic business cards are completely worth the investment. They are an exceptional medium for exchanging contact information and cultivating valuable business relationships.

In addition to being significantly more affordable than physical business cards, digital cards champion environmental sustainability. They also offer versatile sharing options, including email, QR codes, text messages, link shares, and more. Importantly, they can be seamlessly integrated with your CRM system, thus facilitating the conversion of leads into customers in a streamlined manner.

The increasing use of digital business cards presents an exciting and efficient alternative to traditional paper-based business cards. The shift towards digital cards is driven by their cost-effectiveness, ease of distribution, and the ability to update information swiftly. As we look ahead, the global digital business card market is expected to continue its growth, indicating a rising trend among small business owners and professionals.

The Ultimate Guide to Digital Business Cards in 2023 (Summer Update)

Thinking about digital business cards? Learn about the pros and cons, sustainability impact, cost, and more about going digital.

make a virtual business card

Business cards have a long history that dates back to as early as the 15th century. While the primary purpose of a business card—to share contact information—has stayed relatively consistent, business cards have taken a new form over the past few years. 

Digital business cards started gaining traction in 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the expansion of remote work . Since then, their popularity has skyrocketed because of the increased value they offer both individuals and companies. Digital business cards—like the ones provided by HiHello —enable you to create a personal brand, share your card with anyone, and leverage your network to grow your business. Unlike traditional business cards, HiHello’s digital business cards have better functionality, are more cost-effective, and are better for the environment.

So, what exactly is a digital business card? This guide will cover everything you need to know, including how to make and share digital business cards, the benefits of going digital , how to set your entire team up with virtual cards, and more.

What is a digital business card?

A digital business card (also known as a virtual business card, electronic business card, smart business card, and digital visiting card ) replaces the traditional business card and is a way to safely and securely share contact information. A digital business card contains all the information on a paper card but does much more. You can embed your picture, make multiple versions with different contact information, and customize it with different calls to action, effectively using the card as a sales, marketing, and customer service tool. Digital business cards often come in the format of mobile and web applications.

Examples of digital business cards for realtors, doctors, and salespeople.

You’re probably wondering, “Really, another app?” Yes—and for a good reason! Digital business cards are more customizable, sustainable, and wallet-friendly than their paper counterparts. (In fact, many business card apps are free.) If you want to start using a digital card, we recommend HiHello . With over one million cards received monthly , HiHello is the top-rated digital business card app on the App Store and Google Play Store. With HiHello, you can create and share your card with anyone and leverage your network to grow your business.

Understanding the pros & cons of digital business cards

Everything has pros and cons, and business cards are no different. Going digital may feel like a burdensome undertaking if you’ve used a traditional paper business card for most of your career. If you make the switch, it’s important to understand the benefits and drawbacks of going digital.

Digital business card pros:

  • More affordable
  • Easily shared
  • Always on hand
  • Highly customizable
  • Easier and quicker follow-ups
  • Editable in real-time
  • Increased return on investment (ROI)
  • Less wasteful
  • Tech-forward

Digital business card cons:

  • Slight learning curve
  • Mobile phone, tablet, computer, or Apple Watch required to share and receive

In general, the pros of digital business cards greatly outweigh the cons. While there is a slight learning curve, digital cards offer more flexibility, are more effective, and are better for your wallet and the environment.

Price comparison: Paper business cards vs. digital business cards

As we head into a possible recession, making informed decisions is crucial for buyers. Business cards are a necessary investment for anyone looking to grow their business or brand. Most business card apps offer a free version and subscription option (for people who want more customization and advanced features). By going digital, you can eliminate your business card budget or at least get even more bang for your buck.

HiHello conducted a business card price analysis and found that, on average, traditional paper business cards will set you back $64.23 each year. (If you order more than 250 cards per year or opt for cards with premium materials or finishes, expect that number to skyrocket). Comparing this cost to a digital business card, an average 100-person company pays 26% more by continuing to use paper cards. Because HiHello has tiered pricing, larger organizations can save over 50% of their business card budget!

The environmental impact of digital business cards

Did you know that nearly 90% of business cards are thrown away within one week? If everyone switched from paper to digital cards, we could save over seven million trees annually. 

Last year, HiHello published a report about digital business card usage. In this report, HiHello shares the environmental impact that its users made by switching to digital. In 2022, HiHello users helped save:

  • 166,000 gallons of water
  • 25,000 pounds of carbon emissions, and 
  • 25,000 pounds of waste

If you and your organization want a more positive impact on the environment, digital business cards will eliminate this waste immediately. Read HiHello’s Digital Business Card Usage & Statistics 2022 report to learn more.

The ROI of a digital business card

Digital business cards add ROI-generating features that maximize sales efficiency, create compelling marketing and advertising, support event outreach, and more. In addition to being a more cost-effective solution than traditional cards, digital business cards can have an elevated ROI because they:

  • Are easy to use and distribute
  • Have flexible and unlimited sharing
  • Promote brand awareness
  • Increase lead generation
  • Drive direct traffic to the pages and content that matter most
  • Offer tracking and analytics

HiHello published a report on how going digital can maximize business card ROI . If your organization is considering adopting digital business cards, you’ll want to take a look at the findings—they make for a compelling case!

Remember paper business cards? We had to carry them everywhere we went. We’d print a few thousand at a time, only to toss and reprint them for every small change. Good times!

Hey there, I’m Aviva from Elementor. These days, digital business cards are a must-have for networking professionals.

And while there’s no shortage of websites offering this service, today we’ll learn how we can create and fully customize our own digital card landing page, in Elementor.

Creating your own card comes with lots of benefits.

  • First of all, it’s free! Use any feature on your Elementor plan to create your business card, at no additional cost.
  • You’ll bring more traffic to your own website and can use your existing analytics to monitor specific stats about your audience.
  • It showcases your web creation skills to potential clients, right off the bat.
  • Creating cards as a service can be an extra source of revenue.
  • It’s earth friendly. No more wasted paper.
  • And finally, it can easily be shared with anyone, anywhere.

In this video we’ll create a shareable digital card for Jenna Saunders, a New York City based web creator. We’ll begin by creating the business card landing page, complete with all her contact information and a preview of her work.

Next we’ll create a Popup, which will display a QR code and share buttons, so visitors can share her card with others. And finally, we’ll connect the Popup to her card. Let’s see how it’s done.

In a new page, we’ll start by setting up the page structure. Click the Plus icon to add a Container with one column.

We’ll leave it on Boxed, and set the width to 540 pixels. For Min Height, change the unit to VH or viewport height, and set it to 100, so it takes up the full height of the visible screen..

In style, we’ll choose a dark color for the background color.

Then, in Advanced, unlink and add some padding to the top and bottom.

From the widget panel, we’ll drag in a Container, and head straight to the Style tab. For the background, we’ll add a portrait-style image. Then set the position and size.

Great. Now back to the Layout tab, and adjust the Min Height a bit .

Next, we’ll grab a heading widget, and drag it into our container. Update the text, and switch the HTML Tag to H1. Now style it.

Ok, let’s duplicate it, and change the text. Switch the HTML Tag back to H2 for this one. Style it as well.

Next, we’ll align the Headings. Select the Container, and back in Layout, expand “Items.” Justify Content to Flex End, and increase the Elements Gap.

Looking good. Next, in Style, we’ll use a Gradient Background overlay to add even more contrast between the text and photo. For the first color, we’ll select full transparency.

For the Second Color, we’ll choose a solid dark color. Drag the First color’s location slider to the right. In Advanced, add some padding.

Great, let’s drag in a new Container, where we’ll place Jenna’s contact info and showcase a few pieces of her work. In Style, give it a Gradient background, and select two colors. In Advanced, set the same padding as before. Drag in an icon list widget. Update the items. And style them.

Next, we’ll drag in a Text Editor widget, and add our text.

Select the Container, and in Layout, increase the Items Elements Gap.

Let’s show off some of Jenna’s work, using the Pro media carousel widget to draw in potential clients.

We’ll go ahead and update the items with images and links to Jenna’s work. Remove any unneeded items.

Next we’ll Style it by changing the border size, and border color. In Advanced, unlink the margin and give the right and left sides a negative margin.

Whoa. That’s looking kind of weird, but don’t worry, we’ll fix it right up in a jiffy.

Go back to Content and adjust the Height.

Ok, now we’ll go ahead and hide that bit outside the Container. Select the Container again, and set the Overflow to Hidden. Voila! Time to add the social icons.

For our first item, We’ll select the Whatsapp icon, and create an Action link, which is a Pro feature. It allows visitors to click and go directly to Whatsapp to send a message.

Click the Dynamic tags icon and select Contact URL. Choose Whatsapp for the Type, and add the contact phone number.

We’ll duplicate this icon and set it up with Action links for email and phone, using the same method as we did for Whatsapp. Great.

Edit the next icon, and feel free to add as many as needed.

Change Shape to Circle.

Ok, time to style our icons and make them look great.

Now we could stop here, and have a perfectly fine and functioning digital card. But let’s make it even better, and add an option for visitors to share our card, for maximum reach.

But before we do, Hit that Like button if you’re enjoying the video so far!

We’ll click Command or Control E to open the Finder, begin typing in “Popups,” and open it in a new tab by holding down Control or Command, while clicking. Click to Add a new popup, and give it a name.

We’ll close out of the Library, to design our Popup from scratch. Click Settings, and align the Vertical Position to Bottom.

Next we’ll add sleek animations by setting the Entrance Animation to Slide In Up and Exit Animation to Slide Out Down.

To save time on setting up the structure here, we’ll hop back into our business card page, copy the container, and paste it into our popup. Then open the Navigator, and select and delete the unneeded elements.

Drag in a Heading widget. Type in the share text, and align it.

Next we’ll drag in the Share Buttons. Share buttons are a Pro feature and differ from social icons. Instead of directing your visitors to your social pages, share buttons prompt visitors to share your content directly from their profiles.

This is a great way to gather social proof, and encourage your happy clients to recommend your services.

Edit the settings for each button, and as well as layout options. Now, over to Style, and well, you know the drill, style it! Looking good!

Next we’ll add a QR code with a link to Jenna’s card, so it can be scanned by anyone from their phone. There are several great resources for generating QR codes. We’ll use the website QR Code Monkey for this tutorial, but feel free to use your favorite. You’ll find the link in the description.

We’ll paste in our page’s URL. Feel free to check out the other options, as well. Click Create QR Code and then Download PNG.

Drag the file directly into the Editor. Set the size unit to pixels, and adjust the size. We’re ready to Publish our Popup!

Time to set the Popup display conditions. Add a condition, choose singular, Pages. Then begin typing the name of your business card page, and select it.

And Save and Close. Ok, back to editing our business card. Last time, I promise!

Drag in an Icon widget and select an icon. We’ll set it to open the popup, by clicking Link > Dynamic Tags > Popup. Click the wrench, begin typing in the popup name, and select it.

Set the View to Framed.

Next we’ll style the icon to match Jenna’s branding.

And finally, we’ll position it by going to Advanced > Position: Absolute. Set the Horizontal Orientation to Right and adjust the offset. Adjust the Vertical Orientation offset as well.

Ok, the card is all set for Desktop view. But as we know, most of our visitors will likely be arriving at this page from smaller devices. So let’s switch to responsive mode, and make sure everything is optimized. We’ll begin in Tablet. That looks great already, so no need to make any changes here.

Moving on to Mobile, we see it could use a few tweaks. Select the main container, and in Advanced, set the Padding to zero.

We’ll select the first heading, and modify the typography. We’ll do the same for the other text elements on the page.

Next we’ll fix up the media carousel. Set the Slides Per View to 3, and adjust the Height.

Last, we’ll take care of the social icons. Adjust the columns, spacing, and rows gap, till we have a result we’re happy with.

Ok, ready to check it out? Click Update and Preview. Amazing! All of Jenna’s information is right there, at a glance, and she can easily share her card QR code. For even further reach, Jenna can also share the link on her social profiles.

Yet another way for Jenna to share her card is by saving a shortcut to her business card landing page on her mobile home screen.

We can do this from Chrome on Android and Safari on iPhone.

Now you know how to design a digital business card with Elementor and include handy sharing options. So toss…I mean recycle! those paper cards.

Next time you unexpectedly need a card, you’ll be prepared.
