Free digital business card
Creating a digital business card in the ClickCard app is summarized in 5 steps. Are they:
- Templates: where the user chooses the card template he wants to use;
- Photo: place where the user can upload an image of you or your company;
- Info: space in which the persona fills in their contact information;
- Social: field in which the professional chooses and inserts their social networks;
- Design: step in which the user can edit the graphic elements of the chosen template.
After completing these steps, the user already has their digital business card in their hands, being able to view or edit it if necessary.
But for a better understanding, we will talk about each of these steps individually.
Read on to learn the specifics of each one.
1st Step: Models
When accessing the ClickCard Digital Business Card Creator, the user will have several pre-formatted templates available to customize according to their profile.
It is possible to visualize several free models with the information architected in a specific way for each one of them.
That is, for the user to have a personalized digital business card, templates with different colors, icons, typography and other graphic elements are available for each model.
The idea is that the user can have, even if for free, a digital business card that fits their visual identity.
When choosing a template that best matches their profile, the user must select and name it to proceed with the creation of their card.
It is important to note that the name that the user gives to their digital business card is by which it will be found in internal searches of the app, in addition to being the title of the file that will appear when sharing the card internally and externally.

2nd Step: Photo
When choosing a template, naming it and selecting it, the user can skip to the next step which allows the upload of a photo of the professional or company logo.
It is necessary for the user to allow the app to access the media on his phone so that an image from his gallery can be uploaded to the Creator.
The image field has an aspect ratio of 1080x1080, allowing the user to crop or rotate the file to fit the space.
3rd Step: Info
After uploading the chosen image, the user will be able to fill in the contact information that he wants to present on his digital card, such as: name, position, cell phone, email and website.
There are two ways to do this: manually, when the user adds their data by accessing each of the fields presented; or by selecting “Autocomplete”, an option that allows filling in the fields automatically according to the data recorded at the time of profile creation.
The information implemented in this section is the contact information that will be visible on the user's digital card, that is, where the people who access the card will contact.
4th Stage: Social
In the next step, the user will be able to choose between 6 (six) social networks, 2 (two) that he wants to present on his card. The social networks available are: Facebook, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube.
To fill in the correct way, the user must put the link to his profile in the field of the desired social network.
Remembering that: in particular, to share the LinkedIn profile link, it is necessary to access your profile through the social network app and click on the “three dots” next to the “Add section” button. When clicked, a section with three sharing options will appear. Choose the “share profile via URL” and copy the text.
This will be the link that the ClickCard app user must add in the LinkedIn field when selecting it as one of the social networks presented on the card.
Final step: Design
To finalize the personalization of the free digital business card, the user can choose the background that best matches their visual identity, with their own variations for each of the templates.
The backgrounds range from generic themes to specialties, such as: law, dentistry, engineering, medicine and among others.

Premium User X Free User
In the ClickCard application, there are two types of users: those who use the platform by contracting a service and those who use the application for free.
But the question is: What is the difference between a premium account and a free account?
Well, read on as we will explain it to you in detail.
When it comes to “creating a digital business card”, people want to create something that has their visual identity, they want to create something that represents them.
Because the business card is a tool that works with a first impression, it is necessary for the professional to be able to convey his vision, values and goals in the first contact.
This happens through your statements, your clothing, your product, your company and also through your way of networking.
In this way, ClickCard guaranteed its customers the possibility of integrating their visual identity into the digital business card. Thus, details such as typography, color palette, logo, graphic pieces and among other visual details of the company can be incorporated into the card.
You want to know the difference between the two users. Find out now: premium user has no limitations.
Do you want to edit an icon and customize it the way you want? Want to make vector designs on your card? Want to incorporate light and shadow play?
By becoming a premium user you can do all this.
While the free user has limited choices according to the formatting of the template he chooses, the premium user can create his card for free by adding the design and information he thinks is necessary.

In addition to the premium user having a digital business card the way he always imagined, the ClickCard application becomes even broader for him.
In addition to the Card Creator, the ClickCard app provided card engagement through the Metrics tool. That is, the card owner is aware of all accesses that his digital card has on the day, week or month he wants to analyze.
With this tool, the user can get feedback from an event, know how many people accessed their card during their networking practice and even know what contact information they accessed from it.

Another feature available to premium users is the digital wallet.
The digital wallet works as follows: when the user saves a new contact through the ClickCard app, the contact will be directed to your digital wallet automatically. In it he will be able to access all manually saved contacts, all contacts in his company that also use ClickCard, scanned contacts (either by QR Code or printed business card), and those saved as a personalized search result.
That is, in the ClickCard app, the premium user has their own agenda that can be organized automatically according to the way in which the contact information was added to the app.

In addition to the tools available in the ClickCard app, premium users can now purchase their NFC card in addition to their digital business card!
The NFC card is printed according to the visual identity of the customer's digital business card. With it the user can share their card in a matter of seconds. Just bring your card closer to the person you want to share with.
Furthermore, despite being a physical product, its properties are edited virtually.
That is, if the holder wants to change the destination link of his card, he does not need to do another one for this, just edit it on his online platform.
The NFC Card is not dependent on the digital business card, nor is the digital card dependent on the NFC card. Both can be purchased individually or collectively.
That way, when ordering an NFC card with ClickCard, if the owner wants to link it to some social network or website, he can do that. The card does not necessarily need to be linked to a business card.
In other words, the owner is the one who decides its destiny.
