tel - the paperless way to communicate.com is so last season!

I’m loving this new campaign. Take a moment to watch the video – it’s risqué, fun and you won’t forget the message!

When we’re at conferences, meeting, dinner parties or just sittin’ on the bus eyeing up the good looking person opposite how do we ensure people remember who we are? We give them a business card (or a scrap of paper or a post it note).

We collect printed brochures, promotional leaflets and all manner of tree killing materials just so that we can remember someone’s name and communicate with them.

Just imagine how much waste this might create over the course of a year.

Now I enjoy a bit of the quiet life, but I do recognise that some technology is out there to make our lives easier, more efficient AND can help us save resources.

Now you can purchase a .tel address from Telnic to consolidate all your important contact details in one place. It means, as this great advert shows, that all people need to remember is your name, followed by .tel

I think even I can manage that!

People look up your .tel address and have access to any contact information you choose to provide – telephone number, address, WebPages, IM clients, Social Media profiles or your inside leg measurement.

Simple, Effective and quick. Just as we like it!

.tel looks like the new, simple way to keep in touch and I’m liking it.

How about you? Does .tel float your boat? Can you see its advantages for reducing waste in our paper-pushing world?

Take a peek at the video and let me know what you think!

    I try to do most of my communicating electronically and have done for years. Most people have an email address and can text via mobile phone, it’s not hard.

    Love the video, but isn’t this service limited by the number of names. Surely the ‘Ben’ used in the advert could have thousands of people wanting to use it and you’d pretty soon end up with a long name, possibly nothing like your own to pass on.

    I think most people remember the endings of email addresses now, so it’s just a case of getting your name over and this service to my mind offers no greater solution than any other.

    Just tried this and as Poppy says first names are probably gone. No Jackie! But I could put in jackief (f for Fricker my surname). However, it is 13.99 to buy the domain name. Might use it if I wasn’t married and wanted to meet a lot of new people. Certainly more memorable than a card (which I always lose). Don’t think DH would be too chuffed at me handing out contact detials to random hunks. Altho could be interesting lol!

    Might be good for him as he has his own business and easier to remember than a number. Not to mention the cost of getting bus cards printed. I’ll pass it on, thanks for the info Mrs Green.
