Have you ever had this experience? You bump into a stranger and strike up a conversation. It turns out, the person is really interesting! A minute or two passes by and one of you is late in getting to the next thing in their day. You’d like to be able to reconnect at a later time, and you also know that if you don’t get their contact information right now, that opportunity may never happen.
Now comes the moment that is awkward for most people. What’s the fastest, easiest way to exchange contact information before you part ways?
At Contact Mapping, we know these chance encounters can open doors to new opportunities (personally and professionally). So we wanted to give our users a simple way to put their best foot forward so they had the confidence necessary to make the ask. This is why we are excited to officially introduce our digital Digital Business Card. Here are a few examples.
These simple, beautiful profiles make it easy to get ALL of your information over to them quickly and easily. Best of all, the other person can download your contact information right into their phone from a single button. Here’s how easy the exchange can be.
You: “Hey, I’d love to stay in touch. Can I send you a link that has my contact info?”
You: Ok! Send me a quick text to XYZ and I’ll send you my full profile.
They text you.
You drop in your link.
They click and download your card.
They click your various social media links and connect with you.
The Power and Potential of One Connection
Veteran Contact Mappers have story after story about how some chance encounters led to a new friend, a new client, a new hire, a new job opportunity, etc. It’s these serendipitous moments that open up new doors because you are not just connecting with a single person. Through one conversation, you may be able to mutually make introductions to each other’s network. This is powerful.
Will this happen every time? Of course not. But as you keep doing this and building the habit and the muscle, you will increase your odds in finding and connecting with amazing people.
