Are there any disadvantages to using digital cards?
When used correctly, digital business cards can be a cost-effective tool which can also help in building brand identity. That said, there are some potential downsides to consider. Firstly, not everyone is familiar with how to create, view and share digital business cards especially the non-tech-savvy individuals. This means that some people might find it difficult to use your card.
Additionally, some people may prefer to receive a physical card, as it makes them feel more confident in the person and company they are dealing with. This means that there is still a need for paper cards “in some cases”.
What are NFC Cards?
NFC cards is another related option in making transferring of contact info much easier and more efficient. Near field communication (also known as NFC) enables two electronic devices to communicate with each other. For example, an NFC card and a card reader will engage with each other, with a read range of around 4cm offering more flexibility in the field than a contact card.
Smart devices have become incredibly popular in recent years. And the more we can use smart devices to engage with our surroundings, the more powerful they become. NFC Technology or Near-field communication (NFC) is one of the components that enables devices to interact with each other and exchange data wirelessly.
Imagine having an NFC digital card which is around the same size of a credit card. You run into someone somewhere and wish to share your digital business card info with that person. You can simply tap that persons phone with your card in the same way as you would do with other Apps like Apple Wallet or Google Wallet and boom, your info is stored on that person’s phone.
There is a disadvantage to this though as NFC Cards will only work with compatible more recent phones which has the technology to match. This is why the Digital Business Card is the best option.
