A business card—either digital or physical—with a QR Code simply refers to a contact information card that has a QR embedded on it. Upon scanning, the QR Code redirects users to details of a person, including name, phone number, address, email, website, social media handle, or a customized landing/campaign page.

There are 2 ways to use a QR Code on business cards:

  1. Create a QR Code for your contact information and embed it on a business card, or Directly share the QR Code via emails, social media, OOH ads, flyers, etc.
  2. A business card with a QR Code is easily the most convenient way to share your personal or company’s contact information. All users have to do is scan the QR Code, view contact details, and save them on their smartphones within a few minutes.

Why QR Codes on business cards are needed?

For convenient and easy information sharing Traditionally, professionals shared their physical business cards with clients to follow up and stay connected. This meant the receiver would have to manually type and save contact details on their mobile devices, which can be time-consuming and inconvenient.

But with a QR Code on a business card, the receiver can simply scan the code, view the information, and save these details with a few clicks. This allows for easy, convenient, and instant information sharing.
