Business cards have been used to share contact details and other business-related information for centuries, but today—as more of our business lives have become entangled with the web—using your business cards to link to your business online has become increasingly important.  A new infographic, care of Business Card Ideas from UPrinting.com, takes a look at how to use social media and business cards in tandem, to be at the top of your networking game.

In addition to providing design tips and other creative ideas, the infographic points out that these days “a business card is so much more than contact information.”

Don’t forget to provide pertinent links on your business card to your Twitter profile, Facebook page, Website or other online destination where people can head to find out more about you, your business and what you do.  The infographic also suggests modernizing your business card by using QR codes to provide direct links to websites or social network profiles.
