While networking, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. Walking into an event can be anxiety-inducing, so a typical first reaction is to try to blend in. Don’t do this—making a good first impression at events and conferences is crucial, and being original and authentic is what will push you forward. 

One way to stand out at an event or conference is to create a unique business card. Because most paper business cards are thrown out immediately upon receipt, more and more people are turning to a virtual option. Digital business cards are quickly becoming a fan favorite because when you share your card, the receiver will always be able to access it on their phone. HiHello—the top-rated digital business card app on the App Store and Google Play—even reminds you to follow up with the people you meet, so you’ll never let a new connection or prospect slip by. Even better, anyone can receive a HiHello digital card, regardless of whether they have the app or not.
