In recent years all we hear about is digital communication, following, video calling etc. However a slick business card is still a vital marketing tool and one that wont ever be replaced with a digital alternative. Not in our eyes!
Here are 5 reasons why the old faithful business card is still important and why you should have them on hand at all times!
1. Swapping contact information digitally is impersonal.
“Hey look me up on facebook” – How many times have we heard that?
Swapping contact information via email or social networks may be convenient, but its also impersonal. Engaging in face-to-face conversation and personal contact is how real business relationships are built!
Being stuck with your phone in your hand or looking at your screen while trying to gain contacts is not a good look. As simple as it sounds, passing that physical card between hands is a proven method of initial marketing that works!
2. The most effective, easy to use marketing tool.
Ok sure, social marketing is big these days and companies are doing well – But there’s nothing like a good old fashion had shake and business card exchange. It can also be a great ice breaker and conversation piece.
“Wow, that’s a cool card”
That leads onto our next point…
3. Your business card is usually the first physical impression of your brand.
When you meet someone that could potentially be a great prospect or connection, don’t you want him or her to walk away with a great first impression? A memorable business card does a lot more than just pass on an email address or phone number.
You don’t want potential customers looking at your shoddy card and thinking your cheap. A well designed, WELL PRINTED, business card will go a long way, often passing many sets of hands. See it as a marketing investment and it will return business for many years.
4. Having a business card on hand in any situation shows your always prepared to talk business.
Ok Ok, sometimes that guy who always talks about work can bore us to death – But should the talk of business or potential customers arise, You have your business card on hand! Blam! You instantly show you are a great professional and will become instantly attractive to potential customers.
Don’t let business pass you by while hunting around for a pen and a scrap piece of paper – How unprofessional!
5. Business cards don’t rely on battery life.
“Hey, give me your number” – “oh my phones just ran out of battery”
But a business card is always ready to go, no battery needed. Come rain or shine having a business card on hand wont ever let you down and will ensure your shining in the eyes of your professional peers at all times.
