Find a Great Look

clip_image001Your business card is a tiny representation of your business, so you had better make sure that they look great before you start handing them out far and wide. If you aren’t an artistic type, get help, as it is really important that your business cards make you look like a creative and professional businessperson. Get an artistic friend or a graphic artist to help you with your card, so that you can make the most of what is sometimes a brief interaction.

Give Them Out

Always have a stack of business cards on you and be sure to give them to anyone who’ll take one. If you want to get your name out there, it is important that people have a way to contact you, so make sure anyone who is anyone has at least one of your cards. The cards won’t be doing you any good sitting in your wallet, so don’t be shy!

Include Your Website Details

If you have a good website, the main aim of your business card should be to get people to check out your website. Obviously, you will have far more information on your website than on your business card, so get the best bang for your buck and ensure your business card has your website details, so people can get online and see what you are really all about.

Keep Them to Hand

There is no point getting business cards made up if you don’t always have them on you, ready to hand out. Put some in your bag, your wallet, your jacket pocket, your golf bag and in your car, as you never know when you are going to meet that great contact who is going to want to have one of your business cards.

Keep it Simple

The best way to get the most impact from your business cards is to have a simple but effective design. You want to encourage people to take a closer look at who you are and what you do, so keeping your business card simple is the best way to go. This doesn’t mean it should look like a five-year-old made it, though.
