The rise of the business card came out of the need to help people remember the name of a visitor as they arrived to an event. From this innovation there were many more adaptions of the paper business card but nothing spectacularly different. It always remained pretty much the same basic piece of paper with a name and contact information printed on it. 500 years of business card innovation later and the result is 8,800,000,000 paper business cards thrown away in the United States last year alone. The fall of the paper business card is happening right now in business whether we want to admit it or not.The question is, without paper business cards how will we easily share our contact information with a stranger? It has never been the basic idea of what the business card accomplishes that is the problem, but rather the delivery method. It is time for the rise of the digital business card, which can be shared on any device at any time with no limits on the content and no possibility of ending up in the trash. The truth is, the digital business card can’t just stop at sharing the limited information that has already been supplied by paper business cards for hundreds of years; it has to evolve beyond that. In this day and age of advanced technology we need to be able to add videos, photo albums, multiple businesses information and locations, even your social network profiles. Credibility is important too, so the option to add a bio or digital resume is also important. The biggest problem with the paper business card is how to save it. The digital business card needs to be able to be saved right on your phone as an app or easily downloaded as a vcard. It also needs to be simple to share via text or email. The question is, does such a digital business card exist? If you looked at the infographic then you know that I have been describing the One Card™ this entire time. One Card is the new standard in the digital business card world. It’s time for your business card to evolve.
