Cosmic Cow Pie: Connecting the Dots


Virtual Business Cards Get Personal

Click here to view a larger version of my FREE Virtual Business CardsLike just most things in life, even business cards have gotten quite "techy".  They've evolved from a simple piece of paper into wonderfully creative works of art.  Since almost everyone nowadays has some form of computer available within reach at almost anytime of the day (whether that be a desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone), taking the business card from paper to the virtual realm seems like a logical step.

This isn't a new concept, of course.  Virtual business cards have been around for a while.  But, boy have they changed!  CardFlick, one of the more popular and user-friendly of the virtual card designers, has unveiled a way to give your virtual business card a truly personal edge by allowing you to utilize photos from your Facebook Timeline, Instagram account or your own computer's library.  It's really simple.  After you have created your free account and added your profile information, go to CardFlick's InstaCard section.  From there, you can choose a design layout from one of their 30 templates, choose a personal background photo, decide on the text and accent colors, save and you're ready to share. 

CardFlick has made sharing your business card just as painless.  When you are done designing your virtual business card, you can choose to send it to your contacts right away or save it for later.  With their iPhone and Android apps, "flicking" your card to someone is as easy as touching the screen on your smart phone.  And this is all available absolutely free to you.  One down side I found was that it froze up when I tried to access the InstaCard section while using Internet Explorer.  However, this was not an issue in Mozilla.  So, I suggest you access your CardFlick account in the Mozilla browser.

Visit CardFlick's website now to create your own personal virtual business card to share with your real estate clients.  You are only limited by your imagination.  Of course, if you ever need any help, please feel free to contact us at Second Self Virtual Assistance.  That's what we're here for!
