When you network with people, you hand them a business card. You want them to call you when there is a business opportunity. So the best case scenario is when they save you as a contact on their phones. But this is tedious process i.e. typing in the contact details one-by-one. The good news is that this is made really easy by creating a QR Code business card.

Types of Business Card QR Codes

There are two types of QR Code business cards – dynamic and static.

A Dynamic Vcard QR Code creates a personal webpage that shows information such as contact details, photos, important links, and a button to add you as a contact. The advantage of this option is that you can edit the information at anytime without the need to reprint the QR Code on your business cards.

A Static Vcard QR Code encodes your contact information in the code itself. When this code is scanned, the scanning device gets a prompt to save you as a contact. No internet required.

Note that static business card QR Code can be used in email signatures as well as print promotional material (especially for self-employed professionals such as real estate agents, lawyers, doctors, and accountants).
