Step 1: Choose your digital business card template
Choose from a number of templates to suit your style and professional needs. The template you select sets the tone for your real estate digital business card.
Step 2: Add your profile information, contact details, and social links
You will automatically reach the SETUP tab after choosing a template. Begin by adding your profile Information here.
Your profile includes basic details such as your name, headshot, company name, logo, and a professional summary.
Scrolling down reveals the section where you can add your contact details. Include your phone numbers, emails, web URLs, and business location (via Google Maps).
💡 Pro tip: Categorize your target prospect before filling out the profile information section. Not every recipient requires the same information, and specifying details help keep your digital business cards clean.
You can always go back to the dashboard and update existing cards or create a new one for another target group—within minutes.
Scroll down to the Social Links section to embed your social media handles in your card. You can include 20+ social media links with corresponding icons.
This helps potential connections easily find and follow you online.
The last icon in the Social Links list is for custom links. Use this option to add any web URL of your choice.
Step 3: Customize your digital business card
Proceed to the DESIGN tab by clicking “NEXT”. Here, you can personalize your digital business card’s visuals to align with your brand identity.
Select font styles and sizes, and tweak color schemes to make it uniquely yours (there’s a hex editor as well).
Use the Layout dropdown to switch to an entirely new digital business card template and experiment with designs and layouts if needed.
Step 4: Enable networking features as per your requirement
Once you’ve designed your digital business card, click “NEXT” to go to the LAUNCH tab. Enable features based on your requirements, such as:
A custom domain for your digital business card
Automatic contact downloads upon card scanning
Tracking of viewer locations
Two-Way Contact Sharing to collect warm contacts
Incorporating your organization’s QR Code templates
Click ‘FINISH’ after enabling your required advanced settings. You can now begin sharing your digital business card.
Top 5 ways digital business cards can help real estate professionals
Digital business cards have emerged as indispensable tools for networking. Here are some of their benefits for real estate professionals:
3. Instantly get your prospect’s information via two-way contact sharing
Enabling two-way contact sharing will allow your recipients to submit their contact details through a form in your card. This can be an effective strategy to generate warm leads.
Each contact detail submission gets recorded in your solution’s digital address book. You can view and manage your collected contacts from this address book and export them to your company’s CRM software.
