What are talking business cards?

It is a combination of stills, video and audio to showcase yourself in a short presentation. Why show just a photo when you can present your personality.Check out these fabulous eCards that will pave the way for your clients to connect with you and establish a rapport before you even meet!
This is great! How do I get one?
First we need to decide which of the formats work best for your needs. They all have a video intro and the body of the card is your voice with still images showing your service or product. The end can be a video or just a still photo. We can make suggestions for a script or you can write your own. We recommend you practice your lines before the shoot, though, as it goes much smoother and more quickly. If you do not have a hi-res photo or video content for the card, we can discuss pricing to create it. We will also need a high quality logo in either PNG, EPS, JPG or TIF.
How it works
When your TBC is finished, you can embed it as a signature in your emails, embed it on your website, share on social media or just send the link. Once the TBC has played, the viewer will have the option of adding you as a contact or calling you, (if they are viewing it on their phone), or sending you an email, visiting your website or replaying your TBC all with the click of a button!
Talking Business Cards start at $495, and includes a new headshot file for web and promotion, and a year of hosting your eCard with access to all stats! We will photograph and film you in our studio or on location and coach you to get the best possible energy and confidence in your delivery. Some clients opt to film on a different day, using the first session for still photos and prepping for the TBC, with details on what to bring for the video session. Custom Cards are also available and require on location shooting as well as creative video illustration. Please ask us for a quote- we encourage creativity and innovative ideas!
Once your video clips are filmed and you provide the images and logos needed, we will typically be able to complete your TBC in less than a week. However, we will let you know if more time is required.
