How to Send Contact Information in Gmail

It is really easy to get contact information when you are doing business interactions in person. You only need to shake hands with the other person and exchange your business cards. However, when it comes to doing business virtually, or online, the process of exchanging contact information is completely different. Yet, it is not very difficult, especially when you use Gmail to send and receive emails, while handling your contacts.

Many email clients offer Send Contact Info option to their users. However, this feature is not available in Gmail. Still, you have the option to send the contact information through Gmail, by using its export and attach option. It will allow you to send the contact information in no time, rather than typing all the contact information manually.
