BOSTON--(MarketMeSuite, a social media marketing dashboard for small- and mid-sized business, has teamed up with high-quality business card production specialist MOO to offer a new breed of customizable ‘Social Cards’.)--
“MarketMeSuite and MOO are both committed to creating genuine connections. For small business owners, it's imperative to continue the lifecycle of offline networking to online channels to move the needle. With our partnership, we are creating a vehicle to drive key relationships along.”
The ‘Let’s Actually Talk’ Social Card is a fresh approach to the traditional business card that provides an opportunity to transform offline interactions into online conversations; leading to deeper engagement via social media channels.
Each MarketMeSuite Social Card centers around the holder’s most valuable social media contact information. By sharing social channels with new contacts and prospects, MarketMeSuite Social Card holders can manage further interactions through social media engagement, in addition to traditional emails or phone calls.
MarketMeSuite’s partnership with MOO offers the first 50 Social Cards for free at http://bit.ly/MarketMeSuiteMoo to anyone looking to equip themselves with this new type of customizable business card. Each card pack can contain up to ten different color and content variations.
Tammy Kahn Fennell, CEO of MarketMeSuite said: “Social Cards are an offline invitation to online collaboration. Sometimes people find it easier and more valuable to communicate on social in 140 characters or less vs. more traditional methods. Modern business networking is social; it’s all about engagement. A follow-up conversation on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter can be more engaging, especially when combined with MarketMeSuite’s Inbox For SocialTM.”
Fennell concluded: “The initial spark for Social Cards came when I accidentally ordered a batch of business cards forgetting to include my phone and email contact information. My colleagues said I was ‘bold and edgy’. After the initial shock wore off, I felt the same and wanted to share it as a tool to help MarketMeSuite’s small business and professional customers boost their social engagement by leveraging their offline interactions.”
MarketMeSuite and MOO believe that small businesses and professionals will use Social Cards to help close sales cycles, nurture long term leads and capitalize on opportunities over social media that would otherwise be missed by filling the social gap between offline meetings and online conversations.
