Best Digital Business Card Experience Yet—Introducing HYPER Linq Cards and other Hyper products.

The smartest NFC card on the market

Meet the all new HYPER Linq Card, the world's most advanced digital business card yet, with enhanced iOS capabilities for lightning-fast contact sharing. Seriously, this card can save contacts faster than you can type an area code. Better yet, the HYPER Linq Card allows for advanced personalization that leaves an impression that’s uniquely you.

Since introducing digital contact sharing with QR codes to the world in 2019, Linq has become the world's most customizable way to represent who you are and what you do. With the HYPER Linq card you can now brand every tap to make a powerful first impression.

Choose from white and black cards or customize one for a more branded experience.

3. Automatic follow-ups.

Follow up with everyone you meet, even if they they don't share their contact info. If a new contact doesn’t finish saving your info, they’ll receive a reminder push notification. Plus, all your saved contacts get automatic follow-ups to keep you top-of-mind.

Card activation

The process for activating your HYPER Linq Card is the same as any other Linq product. You can read more about activation here or watch a tutorial on how to activate your card here. Once you have activated your card and chosen a Linq page to pair your card with you will be prompted to edit your HYPER Linq settings where you can begin to customize your HYPER Linq experience.


Personalization options

1. Customize your contact preview.

There are 3 fields that you can customize on your contact preview—image, title, and subtitle. Apple requires images that are 1800x1200 px PNG or JPEG image without transparency. The title field can be up to 30 characters while the subtitle can be no more than 56 characters. Keep in mind that it may take Apple up to 48 hours to update the personalized contact preview on your new card. However, in our testing, the preview updates much faster than that.

Customizing your contact preview requires a Linq Pro, Linq Pro Plus, or Linq for Teams subscription.

2. Customize your contact exchange experience.

To get the fastest contact sharing experience with HYPER Linq, we recommend leveraging the auto-download contact card feature. Toggling this setting will affect your contact exchange settings which are also found in page settings. If you choose not to use auto-download then clicking "Open" on the contact preview will launch your Linq page instead of the iOS Contacts app.

3. Adjust your follow-up notification settings.

When people tap or scan your HYPER Linq products, they receive follow-up notifications from Linq. Contacts that scan your card but don't save your contact info will receive a reminder notification that encourages them to save your contact details to their phone. If they save your contact info they will get a notification that says "Thanks for connecting! Let’s keep in touch." You can turn off these notifications if you wish. Only with Linq Pro Plus will you be able to customize the wording and timing of these follow up notifications.


Contact sharing

When a new connection scans your HYPER Linq Card they will see your personalized contact preview instead of the more generic push notification. If they click "Open" they will be directed either to your Linq page or the iOS Contacts app where they can save your info, depending on whether you activated auto-downloading. Once your new connection saves your contact card they will be prompted to share their contact info with you, after which they will be directed to your Linq page for more information about you or your company.
