Is a modern business card worth it for me?

Which technologies make the modern business card possible?


One of the most important technological factors that make it possible to create digital business cards is the so-called Near Field Communication (NFC) standard. This technology allows two devices to communicate with each other at a short distance by exchanging data via short-duration radio frequencies.

This allows a user to accept or exchange a digital business card by holding an NFC-enabled device, such as a smartphone, near the other device.

Html and Co.

The first step is to ensure that the business card is available everywhere and on every device, whether it's a smartphone or a PC. This can be achieved using various technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and web frameworks. At Lemontaps, we already have everything you need to create your modern digital business card.

Privacy and security

In addition, data protection and data security must also be taken into account. This can be achieved by using various security programs and technologies such as Encryption and Security Tokens. Lemontaps pays special attention to the protection of your personal data. For this reason, we use state-of-the-art cybersecurity and brute force protection measures.

Why is a modern business card worthwhile in terms of cost-benefit?

Cost advantage of the modern business card

One business card costs on average around €0.06 for an order quantity of 500. So you pay about 30 € for 500 paper business cards. To cover these costs with the digital business card, you would have to share your digital business card with the personalized NFC business card, which costs around €30, 500 times.

If you decide to buy a Lemontaps NFC business card in our store, you would only have to use it just under 167 times to cover the costs. Here, the cost advantage of the digital business card becomes clear.

The digital business card can be used permanently. The 500 paper business cards are quickly gone and then it's back to spending €30 on new paper business cards.

Be a professional in time saving with the modern business card

The time required for a classic paper business card is often underestimated. The recurring procurement of paper business cards alone costs a lot of time.

But that's not all, because after obtaining the paper business cards, they also have to be labeled. Changing the information also costs a lot of time and again money.

When an e-mail address changes, you get a new position or a new cell phone number, you have to deal directly with new paper business cards. All this costs a lot of time and money and possibly also nerves.

All information such as your position in the company, your e-mail address or your cell phone number can be edited easily, conveniently and without much effort online in your digital profile of your digital business cards at any time.

Our customers save on administrative costs
