Tips on designing a great looking Digital Business Card

Digital business cards are similar to printed business cards except they are digital and therefore can contain so much more information about you than ordinary two sided printed cards. You can add a logo and then change it yourself. You can add a headshot and easily change that. And then there’s all the links to websites, digital brochures and a host of social media that can be added.

 

Include a Professional Headshot.

 

You will look so much better to your clients!

 

If you can manage to get a professional headshot done that would obviously give you the best look for your digital business card. Dress for your photos as you would when meeting a client. A plain white background is best so you pop out of your card with as few shadows as possible. You don’t want dark shadows under your eyes that need to be clear and sharp. Its your eyes that people see first. They should be relaxed yet alert. If they are too intense you may scare people away.

If you would rather take your own photos and have an iPhone, Apple offers tips below on getting great photos.
