  •   PR

Digital communication in both B2B and B2C is more important today than ever before, as many different people from different places around the world are increasingly meeting online to communicate about your services or products.

The stakeholders of your successful business communication

Business communication includes all your communication activities that take place in the course of your company's business.

This includes internal communication between employees and external communication between your company and its stakeholders.

Stakeholders are therefore all persons or groups who are affected by and/or have an influence on the activities of your company. These can be, for example, customers, the media and the public.

Successful communication with your stakeholders is crucial for the success of your company. Stakeholders can influence and support your company, for example by making investments and thus providing resources.

The digital business card as a medium for your communication

Mc Luhans once said: "The medium is the message". By this he meant that it is not necessarily what is said that is essential for communication, but with which medium it is communicated.

What role does the digital business card play in business communication?

In addition to quality and performance, communication represents an important factor of any business. Communication with your customers, your employees and your business partners must be clear and effective to ensure that everyone is on the same page.

The first important step in successful communication is the connection of two or more people who each have a goal to get in touch with each other. To do this, each needs the contact details of the other.

Possibilities of exchange

There are many ways to exchange business information with each other: Via email, in a chat, via Zoom Call or even Facebook. You send an invitation to a next event online, then gladly add your free QR code at the end and enjoy your gained traffic and new contacts. The business card opens the way to get to your contact and find out about them to ensure a successful exchange.

The digital business card - the epitome of comprehensibility

Have you ever heard of Friedemann Schulz von Thun? He clearly defined the principle of comprehensibility in his work "talking to each other". Pay attention to the following 4 characteristics so that recipients understand you.

If we apply this to business communication, digital business cards are the medium to understandably share your important info easily and quickly.

What constitutes comprehensibility in communication with digital business cards?

 

1. Simplicity

This is the principle ``less is more``. You should make sure that the files you link in your Lemontaps profile are presented in a comprehensible way, that is, pay attention to little things like the number of words in the sentence, which should not exceed 13 words.

2. Order

The structure of the Lemontaps digital business card is characterized by a clear order. Each user can enter his or her name and other important data at a certain point in the profile with a single click.

3. Conciseness

Which links should your contacts have access to? Do you always have your goal in mind, what do you want to achieve with the information? In which telephone address book do you want to be found?

4. Stimulant

This means, for example, illustrations with which you can additionally impress your counterpart. For example, share your logo, images of your company and a profile picture.

Strengthen your brand

Advantages are that by sharing your digital business card, your brand will be strengthened and become better known.
