Using Linktree to your advantage at conferences

Business cards are a thing of the past!

You read that right, business cards are a thing of the past! I recently went to a Microsoft Dynamics partner conference and came home with four business cards total and there were over 1100 attendees. 

It used to be I'd come home with between 20-30 business cards after attending a conference, but technology has since changed that. Now I use Linktree. 

Linktree

Linktree allows me to put all my socials and contact information in one place. I use the QR code below on my introduction slide when I present at conferences, and I also have it on my wallpaper on my iPhone. This allows anyone to quickly scan and contact me. 


Email functionality

One of my favorite features of Linktree is that I can add an Email button so prospects can quickly send me an email letting me know what they're looking for; rather than me making notes on a business card and forgetting to contact them when I return to the office. 


I use mailxto.com to generate the email link and also default in the information to make it quicker for the prospect to send me an email. Once they click on the Email button, after scanning my QR code their phone opens up their default mail app and the fields below are populated. This then creates an actionable item for me to complete when I return to the office. 


Long story short...

it's 2023 and business cards are a thing of the past. 

Side note: make a QR code with the MailxTo url and have prospects send you an email right away rather than taking them to a Linktree with links to all your socials.
