FAQs

Share-MyCard was created as a direct response to the challenges presented to business as a result of Covid-19. Using a technology platform most of us have in common – mobile devices, we can now minimise personal and financial risks while still making new contacts and keeping in touch with existing ones. Share-MyCard maximises the usage, scope, spread and effectiveness of conventional print media such as  business cards – digitally. Though we put the spotlight on ‘business cards’  we are applying the same terminology and methods to flyers, posters and landing pages. A digital card shared today with one contact will, in the true spirit of our social media sharing age…be shared with millions.  Available both offline and online, SEO ready contact media will be found by search engines like a regular website.

We have carefully examined the risks associated with a data loss and have set operational guidelines to protect you:

  1. Unless we have a request to do otherwise all information published should already exist in the public domain.
  2. We ask for only the minimum personal data that is required to communicate with you or to deliver a service to you.
  3. We do not sell user data.

  9. Our target users should want their company contact details and services to be advertised.

The social media icons directly below the ‘card’ enable you to :

  1. Share in Social Media Channels such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.
  2. Share with a WhatsApp contact or group.
  3. Email to a recipient.

The QR codes enable a point and click means of sharing with an individual – they scan the code with their mobile phone camera to either visit the card online or contact the cardholder as per their instructions.

If you already have media you can use those as long as they are of suitable quality and of the correct proportions for Business Cards, A5 Flyer or A4 Poster. These will not have the benefit of on card QR coding although a code will be applied to the digital card location itself.

We provide inhouse Graphic Design services for print ready Logos, Business Cards and Flyers. These can incorporate the QR coding to an endpoint as specified by you. Contact us

You have the option of generic Share-MyCard cards which will depict your contact and company information, QR code and hyperlinked to your web address or contact number. Billed separately, not print ready. Contact us

QR codes on  a card provide either a message in text or an invitation to visit a web url, send an email or telephone a number as determined by the card holder. On occasion we can also use a .vcf to enable the downloading and adding to contacts on your mobile phone or email client such as Outlook.

All card pages have a unique QR code below the ‘card’ that will always point to the same destination – even if the content is changed in whole or in part.
