Put Your Picture on Your Business Card

“Do your business cards have a face? If you’re a heavy duty networker or salesperson, you probably meet dozens of people every month, perhaps every week. Those prospects have a better chance of remembering you when you follow up if they can put a face with a name. Try putting your picture on your business card. It’s not just for real estate agents anymore.” This great recommendation is from Creating Customer Evangelists: How Loyal Customers Become a Volunteer Sales Force, by Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba. allows you to easily add your picture to any card design. They have a simple upload procedure for you to follow in their Design Online system. Take advantage of this system today and create a business card that your customers and potential prospects will remember!

Business Cards and Marketing Strategies

The book, Marketing for Dummies, by Alexander Hiam is a useful resource for any business owner or manager. In one particular chapter, it discusses the importance of making a great overall impression:

“Don’t forget that your business card has to appeal to prospects on a basic emotional or intuitive level, too. Imagine someone looking through a pile of cards that includes many competitors of yours. Why would a prospect pick out yours? What about your card makes it call out to people? Basically, your card needs to make a powerful, positive, personal impression. However, most cards don’t. Most are quite dull. Even the ones that are clean and professional generally emphasize information and ignore the need to make an impression. To make a good overall impression, strive for a sophisticated, professional image – with something different, such as a better-quality paper, a more beautiful logo, an unusual layout, a useful fact or inspirational quote printed on the back, or an attractive use of color to highlight your company name or logo. Above all, focus on a well-presented company name and logo.”

What does your Business Card say about You?

What does your business card say about you and your business? How well does it project the professional image you so desire? It’s a good idea to take a look at your business card and reevaluate its effectiveness.

“The Ultimate Marketing Toolkit,“ written by Paula Peters says, “Ideally, you will want your business card to be much more than just a calling card for you and your business. It is also a way for people to quickly judge how professional you are. A card functions as a credibility check. You want that potential customer to think, just from looking at your business card, “Wow, this person is someone that I would like to do business with!”"

Is your business card designed to give potential customers that type of response? If not, it’s time to start looking at new designs today! Some of the best designs can be found here.
