The simple business card shows no signs of going away. This infographic from Colourfast takes you through everything you need to know about using your business card effectively. The first thing you need to focus on is the quality of your business card and many people believe it’s better to have no business card than a cheap looking one. Did you know that 72% of people judge a person or company based on the quality of their business card? Spend the money to get a good one because they’re usually very affordable anyway. Before you get hundreds of them printed, ensure to include all the vital information on the card.
When you have your business cards, it isn’t about giving one to every single person you meet. Be a small bit selective about to whom you give the cards. A good rule of them is to give a card to anyone who you shake hands with after making a connection. Another important thing to remember is that not all business takes place at conferences so always have a few business cards in your wallet just in case you meet someone at the store or on vacation.
