Your virtual business card

Ever find yourself without your business cards?

Here’s a simple but effective idea to help you while networking: the virtual business card.  I got this from my good friend Griffin Caprio who frequently turns me on to smart things. There is really no detailed description required for a site like this. Go grab a good URL for yourself and set up a simple web page like this:

Then, even when you don’t have business cards handy, you can give your new contact a simple URL that helps them find you later. My own virtual busines card is IMetJones.com and contains most of the same information you would find on my paper business card – of course the links are live so it makes it even easier to direct people to my other online profiles at LinkedIn and Facebook, for example (see previous post).
