If you thought business cards are a thing of the past, think again! A Business card may be old school but this tool never goes out of style. It’s surprising how business cards haven’t died down in the digital world.
Here are five top reasons your small business should have a business card, regardless of the nature of your business.
Reasons To Get a Business Card NOW:
1. Exchanging Digital Information is Impersonal
It’s like receiving an email versus receiving a letter. Having something tangible to exchange while at a networking event is always a great idea. A business card not only grants a face to your small business but also creates the first impression for your brand. It shows you are prepared to connect and are serious about what you do!
2. Business Cards have Zero Downtime
A business card is not a digital device that can conk off for various reasons. The very de-technologized nature of the tool makes a business card a solid direct marketing tool. Business cards are easily accessible. One can reach you immediately and recall your brand/business on the spot with your business card.
3. They Get Shared – A Lot!
Creative business cards are like stamps. They travel the globe (a business network) like an epidemic. This could mean great exposure for your small business and could work wonders to help you expand your network.
Tips To Design a Great Business Card
A good business card is a great keepsake. Design your card in such a way that people feel compelled to keep it. Here are a few tips to consider while designing your business card:
- Keep the information to a bare minimum. Your name, company name and contact details + designation are more than enough.
- Using white as your base color is always a great idea. Using readable fonts against a white backdrop captures more attention and hence is easier to recall.
- Want something fancy? Try printing a QR code that leads to your website, social media or online store.
