Through this, our conventional business card can be the medium to represent us in off line world with off line communication’s information such as handphone number and address while for the online site that will act as our virtual business card, it will have our address to our social networking site such as Twitter, Facebook and Linked.

Just like the conventional business card, digital business card should also have proper design to give quick and effective impression to the site visitors. It also has to be easy to browse through and simple enough to deliver our message to the visitors.
