There are many ways to share a digital business card. Because Elify digital business cards are web based, you can share them anywhere you can share a URL or website. Consider texting, emailing, posting to social media, replacing your instagram profile link, landing pages for ad campaigns…the opportunities are endless.  Each card even includes it’s own QR code which makes sharing your digital business cards in print applications possible! 


When sharing your card with an individual person, you will want to use our direct share features. This will allow you to learn exactly when that individual has viewed your card. The first thing you will need to consider is whether or not this individual is already in your Elify contact list. If they are not, no problem, you can easily add them. 


(Note: If you are planning to share to a group where you don’t know the specific person who will view your card, but you still want tracking for that specific share (i.e. you’re posting on your Facebook profile), then use the CAMPAIGNS feature. Directions found here.)


To add a contact to your Elify contact list when sharing a card on your mobile device:


  1. Tap the card you wish to share (Pro Tip! Swipe up on the card too!) and select SHARE
  2. Select (+) New Contact
  3. Enter your new contacts details, scan a paper business card, or select from your existing phone contacts. The only mandatory field is first name. (Pro Tip! If you’re meeting someone face-to-face, have them enter their contact info for you! Just hand them your phone.)
  4. Save their contact info by clicking the Check Mark in the upper right hand of the screen, or select SAVE.
  5. You will be presented with a QR code and a link. If you’re meeting someone face-to-face, you can have them scan the QR code with their smart-phone (Pro Tip! Most recent smart-phone devices have a camera that doubles as a QR code reader. Have your recipient pull out their phones camera and hold it over your QR code. They don’t have to take a picture of the code, just hover over it.)
  6. Alternatively, you can text, email or share to all other apps on your phone from this screen. Select Share in the upper right.
