“I’m not sure what this says about me but it’s on some blank card!” I hear you say. Let me explain. A business card that says “you’re welcome at XYZ” and doesn’t say “I’m not sure what this says about me” doesn’t show me what you feel. It shows me you feel a certain amount of goodwill. It shows me you’re not sure what that is.
It also shows me that youre not thinking. Youre not thinking at all, youre just not caring about the world that you are in.
Business cards have been around since the 1990s. They are a great way to show “I am here” and “I am friendly” but they dont really tell you what’s going on with you right now. They do however give us a general idea of who you are. There are a number of companies that create business cards that you can put on Facebook, LinkedIn, and even in a letter to a friend.
I find that a lot of business cards that I see are just generic. Often they just have the name of the company printed on them and if you were to use them for yourself, you would see the company name on them, but they are usually just generic. There are a few companies that take that extra step and make a bit more personalized. Many of these are quite unique and you can be sure that you will get a response, but the generic ones are not always that special.
A quick search on shutterfly.com in the “business cards” category found a whole lot of business cards that are printed in a way to make them stand out and make a person’s mind jump to them from another place. You will find a lot of these, but some of the better ones take the extra step of having your company name printed on it.
What you really want is a business card with your company name and logo on the front. Many people tend to just pick generic cards with a “company name” on the front and get so caught up in the logo that they miss all the other details on the back. This is the way that many businesses get away with things that are a bit less than ideal, and this is exactly what business cards are meant to be. They are not a place to hide stuff.
In fact, I think they’re better than that. They are a place to show off your corporate identity in a way that makes people more likely to think you are serious. Business cards are a great way to demonstrate that you are a professional because you know exactly what you are doing and you are in control of the message in that case. It is also the most commonly used marketing tool because it is easy to do and it is quick to do.
Business cards are not the type of thing you put on your resume or anything like that, but if you want to make your business cards stand out, you could try using them as an alternative to your resume. Instead of talking about your professional achievements and accomplishments, you can talk about how you are a professional, and then link to your resume.
Business cards are the second most widely used marketing tools in the world, after flyers.
