In any business field, communication with your clients is vital. If you do not have your own site and you get all your sales through social media, then create a business card website with all your contact methods and important links.
A business card website is a one-page site on our domain. You can put a link to your business card website in the social media you work with, in your personal profile, or targeted ads. You clients will be able to see all attached files using the links you provide and choose the preferred contact method.
Let’s assume, for example, that your client found a product they need in Instagram but finds the Direct messaging inconvenient. Put the link to your site in your profile’s description so that they can visit it and choose the communication channel they are more used to.
Or let’s assume that you provide certain services and have just launched a targeted ad. Attach the link to the ad, and the user will be sent to your online business card with your portfolio, pricing, and contact methods.
If you have a site, you can create a business card website and insert your ready-to-use code into HTML, site builder, or CMS.
To create and configure your business card website, you need to sign up for your Wazzup personal account.
How to create a business card website
Go to the “Business card website” section and click on “Add business card website”:
In the right side of the tab, you can see a preview of your site. All changes are displayed in real time.
