Digital business cards for doing general business
Explore these 3 digital business card examples designed for general business networking, aimed at making a strong impression and fostering valuable connections.
1. Add social proof
People trust what others have to say about your product or service more than they trust what you have to say about it. Even a familiar logo can go a long way for building trust.
You can add client logos to your digital business card design or leverage social proof on a landing page that you send your contact to.
If you’re a B2B and you have G2 badges, consider adding them in the same way as proof of your value.
2. Show off what your business can help them achieve
Your digital business card is your chance to make an impression.
Highlight the key benefits your product or service offers with clear, simple language. For example, you could say, “Boost your revenue by 25% with our data-driven marketing strategies.” It’s short, sweet, and to the point.
If you want to keep your design clean, you can do the same with a landing page connected to your digital business card. Because you can constantly update the information on your card, you can keep this up to date without paying extra.
The example below demonstrates Qiagen’s aim to rid the world of monkeypox.
3. Send them to a video that explains your product or service
A video can help you explain your product or service in ways a spoken elevator pitch won’t. Plus the video can be revisited again and again, even when you’re not there to talk business.
Add a link or QR code on your card that directs contacts to a video about your product or service. Keep it short and engaging, so your potential clients or partners get the idea quickly and want to learn more.
Digital business cards for events and conferences
These next three digital business card examples are tailored to help you stand out and network easily and efficiently in a crowded environment.
4. Send them to a custom landing page
At events and conferences, time is of the essence. Make it easy for your new contacts to learn more about you by directing them to a custom landing page.
This page can have event-specific content or even a special offer just for attendees. It’s a great way to stay memorable and keep the conversation going after the event.
5. Make your card visually stand out
In a sea of faces and business cards, you want to be remembered. Make your digital card pop with eye-catching design and colors that reflect your brand.
A well-designed card can be the difference between being forgotten and making a lasting connection.
With Doorway digital business cards you can update your design across your entire employee base ahead of an event. You can do it in seconds and no card goes wasted. That’s something a traditional paper business card could never accomplish.
6. Have a QR code that doesn’t require internet
Not everyone has a solid internet connection at events, but that shouldn’t stop you from networking.
Add a hardcoded QR code to your card that works offline, so potential contacts can easily access your information or a special offer without needing connection.
They’ll appreciate the convenience, and it’s one less barrier between you and a successful connection.
All Doorway digital business cards use hard coded QR codes. We do this because they’re the most reliable way to network and the most secure for you and your business.

Including industry accreditations and awards on your digital business card can boost your credibility and make you stand out.
It shows potential contacts that you’re not only skilled but also recognized by respected organizations in your field.
9. Let people know you’re hiring
Scale ups and growing businesses need to build a team of high performers around them to sustain and capitalize on opportunities for further growth.
But competition for hiring top talent is fierce. Use your and your team’s digital business cards as advertisements for your expanding team. You can either include a design that says ‘We’re hiring’ or have a custom landing page that shows the roles you have live.
Your next hires could come from the connections you make.
Below, Savilll’s example shows their commitment to diversity which can support their hiring efforts and brand values.
