Going Green - One business card at a time...
By Michael Miller – Published 3/16/2012
I attended a business seminar last night that focused on going green from a green housing perspective. The agenda covered intelligent, energy-efficient home and business design that conserves power and makes the most of renewable energy sources. Solar energy for heat generation and electricity were hot topics (pun excused), including controlled use of sun’s twin brother, shade.
Throughout all of the festivities, I saw a steady flow of paper exchanged - business cards, agendas, product brochures and vendor portfolios. As I listened to the energy conservation presentations, I sat there thinking, "how much paper was handed out tonight, and where will it end up tomorrow?" Don’t get me wrong - the presentations were top-notch and thought provoking. My paper preoccupation was one of those back-of-mind issues that I am thinking about today more than yesterday. Enough to mention in this blog? You bet!
Over the past year, Corpnote has been working hard to come up with new ideas that answer the diverse needs of its members and the business community. As a company that offers many tools to "reduce the carbon footprint" of doing business, we are naturally a part of the "Go Green" brotherhood. Our electronic greeting cards, invitations and online surveys conserve paper, printing ink and the fuel it takes to pick up and deliver mail. It also saves money. (Easy-to-believe fact: Did you know that an overwhelming majority of companies that have adopted a "Go Green Initiative" are expecting the number-one benefit to be cost savings?)
One of CorpNote’s hot new feature upgrades is called QuickSend. On the ’front end,’ QuickSend is a web portal for cell phone users that lets you send anyone an eCard with all of your contact information in a few seconds. It’s great for networking events or anywhere that you want to quickly share information about yourself, your company, an upcoming event invitation or online survey.
On the ’back end,’ QuickSend lets you pre-design the eCards people receive, with your company logo, contact info, social media links, website information, high-resolution photos and more. It’s the ultimate ’go green’ business card. But unlike paper business cards, QuickSend lets you automatically add each recipient to your online address book so you can easily maintain the relationship.
