How to go paperless with your business card in 2017 ?

I have explored the android app Camcard to digitize the business card of clients I meet and have that information encoded on my davcard server before I leave the meeting, it's a great way to actually encode all these new contacts into your database instead of letting the business cards wait on your desk.

But what about giving your business card paperless ?

in 2017 most phones are NFC enabled so I tested this by buying 10 tags at https://gototags.com/
and then used the android app NFC Tools (ended by buying the pro version of this app because it's really good) NFC Tasks + NFC Tools you can have your tags doing pretty nice things just by approaching your phone from the tag. There are other apps outhere that manage to write countless pre-made tags that you just need to adapt to your needs.

So I basically used the VCARD template to share my full contact and wrote this to the NFC tag.

Now when I want to give my business card the other person just need to approach his phone from mine and after a few seconds a new contact popup will ask if the contact is to be saved and it's done.

Writing/reading/erasing/reusing NFC tag is pretty much self evident when you start with NFC Tools even with the non-PRO version.

NFC tags can be used for countless things, including directing a user to a online survey for example, users can be sent to a URL or an image, mp3, or a PDF with your CV.

In a nutshell, to make your WordPress GDPR compliant, you should (1) look into all the different ways in which you’re collecting visitor data. Next, (2) put mechanisms in place to make sure that users can control their data. Additionally, (3) it’s probably a good idea to avoid collecting user data where it’s not necessary (like the contact form example from above). And most importantly of all, (4) even if you’re using third-party tools and solutions, you still need to make sure that those are GDPR compliant as well.

If you don’t have all of the above taken care of by May 2018, trouble.
