Why Business Cards Still Matter

5 Reasons why Business Cards still matter….

1. Swapping contact information digitally is impersonal.
2. They are the most effective direct marketing tools.
3. A business card is the first impression of your brand.
4. Creative business cards get shared – continuing to market for you.
5. Business cards show you are prepared.

Digital marketing is forever growing but nothing beats an in-person meeting sealed with a hand shake and a business card exchange.  A person’s business card can be considered one of the most important marketing tools that he has.  Production and printing costs of business cards are low, but benefits are very high, as they make a statement in the business world. Business cards allow you to never miss an opportunity to make a valuable business connection.  It could lead you to a great new job, a great business partnership, or simply help your business make money.

Technology vs Business Cards

With technology making sharing information easier, some say that business cards have lost their edge. Though be aware that swapping contact information via mobile phones is impersonal and your business’s logo, colours and list of services aren’t portrayed in a phone contact. You will be just another phone number in the list, don’t get lost in technology. Something tangible like a business card can remind them to reconnect after the meeting by making a professional and memorable impression.

Always be prepared

Always be prepared… you never know when you might meet a potential client or encounter a business opportunity. Make it a habit to keep some business cards in your wallet, handbag, laptop bag or pocket… After all, business cards are meant to be given out, they serve no purpose just sitting on the counter or even still in the box they came in.

Good design is good business

Your image is reflected by your business card and if you have one with a good paper quality, colours and graphic design, the first impression of a possible client will be far better. Seek the help of a professional graphic designer to design your business cards, it’s a worthwhile investment for your business.
