How does a vCard QR Code work?
A vCard QR Code includes your full contact details, making it easy for your customers to reach you. It’s like an extension of your traditional business card, but completely digitized to be shared with a single scan. When visitors scan the code, it opens a landing page with your contact info. They can choose to download your info on a vCard right to their phones.
Making the code takes just a couple of minutes. Scanning and downloading your vCard takes just seconds. No fumbling around typing in numbers and addresses. All your information is conveniently downloaded right into their contacts list.
Making it simple
Visitors save so much time by scanning your vCard QR code. Instead of typing out your name, phone number, address, email, title, etc., they simply scan it and all that is downloaded right into their phone. Your vCard can even have your social media links!
Displaying your uniqueness
You’re a unique person, so why not make your code as unique as you are? Make it stand out with some colors. Add a logo if you have one. Put your name right into the shortened URL. The more individualized your code is, the more likely people are to scan it. So, get creative!
Bettering your campaigns
QR codes can tell you when and where your code has been scanned along with the number of times it’s been scanned. Not only does this allow you to see how many people have downloaded your contact info, it also allows you to use that data to adjust your campaigns and improve those download numbers.

Why use dynamic website QR Codes?
Visitors feel more compelled to scan a code if it looks unique, so boost your networking numbers by adding some color, putting a logo on it and putting your name into the shortened URL. Make your code say: “Scan me,” and watch your network grow.
Print your code as large or small as you want (down to the size of a postage stamp, approximately). We provide you with a variety of file formats so you can choose the best one for the medium you are using to share your code. Ask us for help if you need any.
Avoid guessing when it comes to using your QR code. vCard codes give you valuable information about when and where they were scanned along with how many times they were scanned.

Your code is completely editable, so if your title changes or you move or you get a new phone number or email address, you can simply change the information in the code. Got a new haircut you want to show off? Switch up your photo. Just started using Twitter? Add your Twitter profile to your contact info. Edit it as much as you need to.
