Yeah, Ive been on that site, egregate.com. My colleague in the real estate business and I both bought a card from that site last week! Due to tough times and the desire to find new innovative ways to market and advertise our business we came across digital card options and stumbled upon the site. I cant believe no one had thought of this idea before now. The egregate site is so user friendly and there was no third party transfer or software necessary. I just entered the info I choose to present to clients from the template provided, uploaded our company logo right from the egregate site, chose my background colors and font, then bam! Sent it right to my Blackberry. It was slick and only 17.95, no membership fees. We plan on organizing some events this spring to try to rebuild this dead market and we will use this site to create event cards that will enable us to invite investors from all over the country via text. I think this is the greatest new technological idea in quite some time.
The product they offer looks like something I could type up myself and save to my phone to text for free!!!
If you are looking for an ACTUAL business card that is just in digital format, to text or email to potential clients/customers...check out our website, www.egregate.com. With our product you are able to include a custom logo to your card along with any other info you would like. Our cards are also easily converted to event cards, appointment reminder cards, and coupon/specials cards. It only costs you a one time charge of $17.95, no other membership fees, and you will then have lifetime unlimited use of the card!!!
