USB Business Cards Say A Lot About You

Posted by USB2U on 4th May 2012 | Permalink

At a time when more and more people are sharing information about themselves via services like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and then exchanging information via smartphones is there still a place for the traditional paper business card?

When you stop and think about it, it does seem strange with the amount of technology most of us carry around and take into meetings that so many of us still use traditional business cards to share information about ourselves and the company we represent.  After all, most people that are given a card will simply transfer the information from the card onto their PC, their phone or iPad and then more often than not the card is discarded. It’s rare these days that people hang onto the cards and build their own business card collections. Businesses selling business card wallets and Roladex are surely living on borrowed time!

If you still want or plan to give out business cards then why not think about upgrading from a basic paper card to a USB business card. These a plastic “business card” shaped USB flash drives that can be printed (on both sides) with your company details, logo and your personal contact details – they look like a business card and at 2mm thick they’re only marginally thicker than their paper counterpart.

But, the real beauty of these USB Business Cards is that they work just like a regular flash drive and they’re available in a range of different memory sizes from 1GB all the way up to 16GB. The on-board storage (which is vast) allows you to pre-load the card with basic information like your contact details, your product catalogues, price lists, technical sheets, media file etc. In fact, anything that can be digitised can be pre-loaded onto the cards before they are handed out.

Of course the recipient will still have to transfer (or digitally copy) the information from the card but because the card is likely to be a little bit different from anything they’ve been given before it will “prick their interest”, it will make you and your company more memorable. Additionally there will  be a stronger likelihood that they’ll read the information you give them and more fundamentally because there will be store space left on the card they can use for their own personal data there is a strong likelihood they will keep the card and use it regularly.

Fundamentally we think business cards are in the last throws of their life but if you are going to give them out then perhaps now is the time to switch to a USB business card.

USB Business Cards – Delivered in 24hrs

Here’s an interesting idea – don’t just hand out an inert paper based business card during your next meeting or at a trade show or event card but instead upgrade your business cards and hand out the latest USB business cards!

USB business cards are the size of a credit or bank card, they are printed with the same information as a usual business card (name, title, company details, phone numbers, email address and your company logo etc.) but the one big difference is that the card has up to 16GB of on-board memory. The on-board memory can start at 1GB and options at 2GB, 4GB, 8Gb and 16GB are available.

Although they look like any standard business card, they work just like any regular USB flash drive – just “flip out” the USB connector and connect it to any PC or Mac and your business card can deliver thousands of documents, a full multi-media experience or links to your website or any combination of these!

So, instead of your business card supplying basic contact information about you and your business it can now offer the recipient pretty much anything you want to offer them including company presentations, product brochures, price lists, media files, (movies, audio file etc.) links to your web site, flickr pages and Facebook pages etc.

They’re ideal for use at Trade Shows, Press Events, Seminars, and Company Visits/Meetings. The fact that the recipient can

make use of the memory (storage) on your USB business card to save and store their own data means there is much more likelihood they are going to remember you, your business and what you have to offer them.

You might not want to replace all of your business cards with USB cards simply because of the cost but selective replacement and use makes sense because of the advantages they offer and the opportunity for greater opportunity for brand development they deliver.

USB2U can supply USB business cards on very competitive terms and uniquely they can supply them printed in as little as 24hrs. Although the minimum order is 25 cards you can have 25 different and contact details printed on each card or you could have them all the same – your call.

The pricing might surprise you as well – compared to a small print run of paper cards on a “rush” service they don’t work out that much more expensive. Give the team at USB2U a call or fill in the online quote form on their web site and they’ll get back to you in a flash!
