Networking, the green way, and why professionals should consider it.

Of the many things 2020 has taught us, optimal usage of resources has been one of the most important ones. There is an active conversation among brands and professionals promoting sustainability and environmental responsibility. Almost every business leader has spoken about the importance of being environmentally conscious.

What does this imply in terms of networking? There is a great scope of making our current networking practices more ‘greener’. Ever since the inception of Mobilo one of our primary motives has been: making networking more earth-loving. We do that in several different ways with mobile business cards in focus.

As a networker, it is very important to stay up to date with the latest trends of contact sharing and digital business cards are ‘just the thing’ right now. Just by making a simple switch from paper business cards to a smart business card, you can make a considerable difference.

Here are a few ways in which you can make your networking green:

  • Don’t hand out your business cards at meetings and events: Carrying a pile of business cards with you everywhere sounds very yesterday. Fun fact, did you know that 88% of all business cards end up in the trash within a week? What you can do instead is take your Mobilo business card, tap on your connection’s phone so they can save it. You’re not only saving their time but there’s a higher chance of achieving your objective with that encounter because you’re already in their contacts. Not in the trash.

  • Use your digital business card: Close fit to the current remote working scenario; this not only removes paper completely from the equation but also makes for a hassle-free networking option. It’s a subtle but strong move.
  • Link sharing feature of your digital business card: While giving out brochures or promotional pamphlets may attract your fellow networkers, but there might just be a quicker and more tree-loving way of doing this. Using the link-sharing feature of your smart business card, you can share the material virtually in just a tap making it easily accessible. You can link informational material, an interesting website, or lead to your promotional website.

Besides being a burden on the environment, a few aspects of networking have also been an unnecessary expense to your business. By adapting to a greener networking solution, you will end up saving a lot more money. With the help of the Mobilo calculator, you can get an estimate of how much you can save by making the switch.
