Anything that stands between you and closing a deal is just another obstacle. So with that in mind, chances are pretty good that you have a stack of business cards sitting around, waiting to be entered into Base. But here’s a quick way to get those cards into Base, and all you have to do is take a picture with your phone.
There are two tools that you need: FullContact Card Reader, and an account on Zapier. If you caught our blog post a couple of weeks ago, you likely already have a Zapier account set up and doing work for you.
The latest edition of the mobile app Card Reader includes Zapier integration, so a scanned business card can be sent directly to Base. You can even chain a few zaps together so that any card that’s sent to Base can also be added as a LinkedIn contact, or sent to a spreadsheet that you’re keeping for a specific event.
We know that you’re always looking for ways to make your job easier. Having the data you need, where you need it, is paramount. Stop letting that stack of business cards go to waste. Take a picture with your phone and turn them into contacts or leads inside of Base with just a click.
You can set up your zaps now:
