2 Things You Didn’t Know About Intro

It’s been almost two months since we released Intro for iOS, and are excitedly working on a version for Android. Yet there are still a couple of things you might not know about our digital business card app.

1) You don’t need an about.me page to download Intro

If you already have a page when you download the app, that’s great just click the blue “Log In with about.me” button to sign in and start sending intros. But if you or a friend forget your business cards, never fear; you can still download the app and start sending intros in minutes. Just click the “Sign Up with Facebook” button and you’ll instantly have a page created from your Facebook profile. And that’s it, you’re ready to start sending intros!

Control What You Share with Intro

Last week we talked about the history of the business card and how it has evolved from a personal “calling card” to one primarily for business.

But in this digital age, when much of our personal and professional information is just a Google search away from the name on our business cards, it makes sense for business cards to present more than just a few bare facts. That’s not to say you should link a Google Search of you to your business cards, you should have the power to control what you share with others in an attractive and organized way.

Writing Your Bio for Intro

Last Thursday we released our newest app, Intro, which allows you to take your about.me page and easily turn it into a sharable digital business card that actually communicates your identity.

Normal business cards just give the basic facts of who you are, your name, where you work, but they don’t tell others who you are. So to find out more about you, your new contacts will likely turn to Google and land on whatever page they find first.  It could be your Twitter, Facebook or some other social media page, but none of those show the full picture of who you are. If you’re trying to put your best foot forward, sharing your about.me page is the best way to showcase who you are, on your own terms.

Discover the new Intro App

First impressions matter. This is why we created Intro

With our new app, released today in the App Store, you can take your about.me page and easily turn it into a sharable digital business card that actually communicates your identity.
