Building your digital business card is the first step to applying the Elify technology to your business. The best digital business cards are thoughtful, professional, and on brand. 


When you first create your Elify subscription, you will be prompted to build your profile. This is the key to being able to quickly and easily build future digital business cards. Every time you build a new card, Elify will ask you if you want to use your profile information as a starting point for your new cards content. You can edit your profile any time to facilitate quicker card building in the future. As you are building your profile for the first time, you will want the following information:


  • Basic contact info (name, email, phone, address, etc.)
  • Social Media channels - your profile can accommodate direct links and handles
  • A professional headshot or photo. Suggested size is 800x800px. If you don't have a headshot already, the square picture setting on your smart phone or device is an excellent way to capture an image you know will fit this box. Solid backgrounds are best.
  • A thoughtful “About Me” section. This will most likely be different for each card that you build, but it’s helpful to have a starting point in your profile.


To edit your profile, begin by opening the Elify app on your mobile device.


  1. Tap MORE in the lower right hand corner of the app. Then select Account Settings.
  2. Your profile will be presented to you immediately. Scroll through to find the section you wish to modify or edit.


On your computer or internet browser:


  1. Tap your name in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Select My Account from the drop down.
  3. Select Profile and then select Edit. Modify the sections you wish to edit and select Save.
