Are Business Cards Dead?
Show Notes

Hello and welcome to the Sales Insights with Sarah podcast.  In this episode, Sarah Downs talks about if business cards are dead and how new technologies can help in a post-pandemic networking world.

In this podcast, Sarah will openly share the good, the bad, and the ugly of her entrepreneurial journey to date and also interview others to share their own sales insights.



Paper business cards will not have a place in the post-covid-19 world.

Sometimes individuals have one opinion and the business has another.

I am not convinced I will order more business cards.

Other ways to network:

  • Connect on Social Platforms eg. LinkedIn
  • Digital Business Cards

Benefits of Digital Card

  • Fewer germs spread
  • Able to keep information updated
  • Environmental


"I would love to hear from the Sales Insights with Sarah community what you think on this."

"For most of us, we are in areas where face-to-face networking has well and truly slowed down."

"I am not convinced I will order more business cards for myself or my team."


I am the Co-founding Director of Doqaru Ltd, a data-driven sales and marketing consultancy for engineering, technology and professional services companies.
 I've directly served over 85 companies in a sales consultancy capacity in the past 5 years, and have indirectly supported hundreds of businesses through online workshops and various content. My company, Doqaru, were nominated as finalists for Start-up Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses and Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2019 and 2020.
 I'm a Fellow of the Association of Professional Sales (APS) and care about helping organisations to grow revenue and drive the performance of their sales teams.  I have a passion for people and have recently co-authored Amazon No1 Bestselling Purposeful People, an anthology about finding purpose and purpose-driven leadership.

As an ex-trauma nurse I’ve learned a lot about how to truly connect and engage with people, even during the most emotional and vulnerable points in life.  I now use this knowledge and experience to help my clients to ‘Sell Like a Nurse’ and build human connection that makes a difference in business.

So, I know a thing or two about strategy, making meaningful connections and building relationships with purpose….just what you need in Social Selling!



Sarah is on a mission to get Business Professionals around the world to share their Sales Insights.  So how can you help us make a huge difference to the number of business and sales professionals we reach each month…..
