What is so special about it?
If this is the question asked to you, what would you answer or how would you react?
To me, visiting card(s) are like a Gold Mine. In the first place, it is given to you only when you meet a person face to face which establishes the first point of contact and a rapport being built then and there. All you need later is to just flash the card and recollect the event where it was given to you.
This eases lot of things which includes and not limited to the ones mentioned below:
1) You do not have to waste your time and also the time of the client which are real precious.
2) You do not need an introduction, necessarily.
3) You do not have to search for contact numbers to connect with a particular client, vendor, prospect.
Now that I had explained the above aspects, there is one other thing which needs to be noted. Despite going digital, majority of us still continue to use visiting cards which shows how much importance this has got till date.
Coming to the point. How many of you have visiting card holders and organizers? Not many would have it and even if they had, not all the cards would fit into one place and over a period of time, it becomes bulky and starts consuming the space.
This is where Contactous comes into picture.
