Today we live in a digital world and we do business digitally – sending mail, signing contracts, attending meetings, and even networking. A business card, a leaflet or a poster is a tool that digital will not totally replace soon.
Here are a few reasons why the good old business card is still important:
It is the first impression of you or 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 impact? A catchy business card does a lot more than just pass on an email address or phone number.
Exchanging contact information digitally can be a bit remote, cold and unfriendly.
Networking is about making authentic connections. Sending contact information via text or email is convenient but it is also really impersonal. Engaging in eye contact and a conversation is how real relationships begin.
They are the most effective direct marketing tools.
There’s still no more effective way to attract leads and prospects than an in-person meeting sealed with a handshake along with a business card exchange.
You can encounter a potential lead or contact at any time – conferences, happy hour, airport lounges – and arming yourself with business cards at all times will ensure that you never miss an opportunity to make a valuable business connection.
Keep a few cards with you to demonstrate how well-prepared you are: please look around and choose the one from our ever-changing business card templates that you feel to be the closest to your style.
Of course, if you wish we can tailor further a template to make sure it suits your needs and taste.
