Unlike other platform that require a lots of work, cost, time and effort to set it up – sharing your digital profile has never been easier with BeeContact, you can have one setup in just few clicks.

Thanks to the BeeContact platform, it enables you to manage, connect, update and track them all (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, TikTok, Reddit, Medium, Tumblr, Telegram etc) in one manageable place, thus saving your time and effort.

BeeContact can also prevent spam bots from harvesting your email address – if you include your "naked" email address or telephone number on a web page or social media platform, the problem is that you could find yourself inundated with Email or SMS spam. BeeContact uses a "clever" redirection protocol to mask your sensitive information.

  • As a Payment Point (linking to PayPal.me to collect payments/ donations for your projects)

3) Who can benefit from using the BeeContact service?

Virtually, anyone – here are few scenarios:

a) Think of a printed business card, why do you need one? Business cards serve a primary purpose and that is to market your business and getting your key contact information over to your prospect in a matter of seconds. However, printed business card is not cost effective, inflexible (e.g think of the reprint fees if your contact detail changes) and its reach is limited. Digital business card does not have any physical boundaries.

b) Think of it like a landing page, a short/ concise summary of your business or whatever you are representing – sometimes people don’t want to read an essay type page when they are looking for a service. You must have heard of an elevator pitch, right?

c) Any individual such as student who wishes to group and connect all social media links, website URL (e.g linking to an online resume), YouTube channel, contact details, email address in one place. Your online Contact Card can be shared with your potential employers, rest assure that it can raise your profile.

d) For a community, a perfect solution to bridge all your social links with your online community e.g Crypto community, and having group links such as Reddit, Discord, Telegram in one place is a must!

e) Anyone can benefit from posting BeeContact profile on the email signature, as a bio link in forum post, blog comment signature etc.

f) BeeContact can help to overcome any sanitary issue (like Covid-19), thanks to the contactless experience - no physical contact is required to send or receive a digital business/ bio card.

g) The whole world can benefit from it, ultimately! Let's all go digital for a greener and cleaner environment – no more paper-based business cards, it's time to act now.
