Sharing your digital business card QR Code (or digital business card) is not complicated if you know the most suitable way to share it.
Traditional methods such as:
Saving and accessing the QR Code from the image gallery on your mobile device
Printing the QR Code and embedding it on a paper business card
may not work. These methods are dated, inefficient, and non-eco-friendly—and can make you look unprofessional in this digital-first era.
So, what’s the best way to share your digital business card? As an Apple Wallet pass.
Simply add your digital business card QR Code to your Apple Wallet. You can then open the Apple Wallet on your iPhone, access your digital business card QR Code (stored as a Wallet Pass), and instantly share it with your prospects.
