Do You Still Need a Business Card?
The tradition has always been that when you meet a potential client or customer, you give them a business card. The business card has all of your contact information on it and maybe even your company logo. But, things have changed. Today, you put your phone number into the customer’s phone, add them to your email contact list and have them “like” and “follow” you on social media accounts. You can even take a picture of a business card and add it to your business card file you have on your phone. But, there is still big reasons that you should have business cards no matter if your business is small or big.The following is a list of a few reasons to print up business cards and pass them out to everyone you know!
Yes, you could always email someone all of your contact information, but then you would need their email address and putting it into your contact list. Yes, you can beam information back and forth between cell phones, but both phones have to be compatible and you could miss out on some really great contacts if their phone doesn’t work with yours. Handing someone a business card or taking one from another possible customer, gives you a greater chance of getting the contact information correct and having ALL of the information instead of just one piece of their story. Then there are people that you might run into that you would like to do business with who don’t have a digital device. If you want to let people know about your business and contact you for that information, you have to be ready to give them the information they need. And a business card will do exactly that!
