These tiny, usually rectangular-shaped cards are a prominent sight at conventions, seminars, and business luncheons. At some point, almost everyone carried them – from entrepreneurs, handymen, to professors, realtors, as well as artists.
Today, they come in every shape, color, and form. They can be as creative as the people they represent.
Are business cards still important?
Business cards nowadays are no longer just colorful card stock. They are powerful marketing and referral tools. Regardless of your industry or profession, it’s a good idea to have a set with you in case you encounter an opportunity or meet someone you like.
Aside from your name, job (or business), and contact details, a business card can also carry your brand. This is vital for enterprises and freelancers who need to be remembered. One can put their logo, color scheme, and products/services in a card. A customized QR code could point to a website, portfolio, or online resume, too.
A professional-looking business card made from quality material is a wonderful way to make a great first impression. In certain cultures and countries, such as Japan and Hong Kong, business cards are vital when meeting clients. It’ll be awkward if you couldn’t give one when you’ve received one.
Lastly, business cards are one of the quickest and easiest ways to network. E-cards are good – until your internet connection fails. Or your smartphone battery runs out. With a handy business card, all you have to do is whip one out and hand it over with a smile.
Who knows: maybe the next time someone needs a writer, researcher, or supplier, they’ll remember your card and give you a call!
