Crafting a Shareable Digital Card
Let’s dive into the process of creating a shareable digital card for Jenna Saunders, a talented web creator based in New York City. We’ll start by building the business card landing page, complete with Jenna’s contact information and a preview of her work.
Building the Business Card Landing Page
- Start by setting up the page structure using Elementor. Add a container with a single column, set the width to 540 pixels, and adjust the height to fill the visible screen.
- Choose a dark color for the background and add some padding to the top and bottom.
- Drag in a container and set a portrait-style image as the background. Adjust the position and size accordingly.
- Add headings for Jenna’s name and professional title, aligning them to the right.
- Create a gradient background overlay to enhance the contrast between the text and the photo.
- Introduce another container to display Jenna’s contact information and showcase samples of her work.
- Style the container with a gradient background and padding.
- Use an icon list widget to display Jenna’s contact details and style it accordingly.
- Add a text editor widget to include a brief description of Jenna’s work.
- Utilize the Pro media carousel widget to showcase Jenna’s portfolio. Customize it by adding relevant images and links.
- Style the media carousel by adjusting the border size and color, and set the appropriate height.
- Hide any content that exceeds the container by setting the overflow to hidden.
- Finish off by adding social icons, such as WhatsApp, email, and phone icons, linking them to their respective actions.
Creating a Popup for Sharing
To maximize Jenna’s reach, let’s include an option for visitors to share her card. We’ll create a popup that features a QR code and share buttons.
- Open the Popup settings and align the vertical position to the bottom.
- Add sleek entrance and exit animations for a visually appealing user experience.
- Design the Popup structure by copying the container from the business card landing page.
- Customize the heading and introduce share buttons, which encourage visitors to share Jenna’s content directly.
- Style the share buttons to match Jenna’s branding, ensuring a cohesive aesthetic.
- Generate a QR code for Jenna’s card using a reliable QR code generator.
- Upload the QR code image and adjust its size within the Popup.
- Set the Popup display conditions to appear on Jenna’s business card page only.
Adding the Finishing Touches
To make Jenna’s digital business card fully functional and visually appealing across different devices, follow these steps:
- Include an icon widget that opens the Popup when clicked. Style it to blend seamlessly with Jenna’s branding.
- Ensure the card’s design is optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile views.
- Make necessary adjustments for tablet and mobile views, such as modifying typography and optimizing media carousels.
- Fine-tune the layout of social icons to create an aesthetically pleasing display.
