How necessary are business cards


Whether you’re working for a firm or have cut ties and are working for yourself, having a business card is a great way to get your name out there and an easy way to provide potential clients with your name and number.  A memorable card can be the difference between your company sliding into a drawer to be forgotten with numerous others, or standing out and making people take notice.

Even if you’ve just started your own business, giving the impression that you’ve got your ducks in a row and that you’re ready to tackle on the job in a professional manner is one way to win over clients and win that bid.  If you’re working for a company, offering your own card to clients is a way for them to remember you amongst the potentially high number of other employees vying for the same attention. A business card may just be the ticket to give you that edge.

Every person you meet is a potential contact or client.  You may run into people on the bus, on your business trip, or even at the local coffee shop.  When you start realizing that each one of them may have something to offer or that your business may just be the right fit for them, you can see how having a business card at the ready is the best way to reply when the inevitable question arises “So what do you do?”.

If you’re planning to use a business card as one of your networking methods, it pays to have something that simply but effectively outlines exactly what your business can offer.   Keep it simple, and include only the most important key information that you’d like to pass on.  Too much information means that you’ll lose their attention and your card won’t have the impact that you intended it to.  There are a wide variety of fonts at your fingertips, but make sure that your card hasn’t used such a fancy script that the writing becomes illegible. Simple fonts are best with colours that don’t overwhelm but will allow your clients to recognize them as your card with a quick glance.  It’s also important not to cover the entire card with information, as oftentimes clients will want to jot notes on the card, possibly to remind them of key details that you’ve imparted, or the dates of a job that they’ve asked you to do.  Also remember that a glossy card makes this note taking hard to achieve, so matte might be your best bet.

You can certainly spend the time creating your own business card and coming up with something that will do a great job, but unless you have commercial printing capabilities, the printing is best left to the professionals.  If you’re at a loss for what to put on your card, or aren’t sure how to bring it all together, having your cards custom made can be your ticket to a card that speaks volumes and lands you that next job.
