It is good to be aware of what is going on in your business, so why not add some concrete to your business card? For instance, why not have an image of someone you know? It could be the face of a person you know or of a company you know.
A great way to get people to know you, and also to make them feel as if they know you, is to use your business card as a billboard. If you put the logo of a company on your business cards, it becomes a more valuable marketing tool. As someone who is in the marketing industry, I’ve even gone so far as to use my business cards as my resume.
The ability to use business cards for marketing reasons is a major reason why many companies have opted for business cards over email. Ive used mine to send out email newsletters, as well as in my newsletters. They still get read and answered, and most of the time people end up getting re-engaged.
Of course business cards are still important for marketing purposes. Ive done so because I want people to get the information on my business cards, and to know who I am, what I do, what I’m looking for, etc. But they are also crucial for branding, and the ability to use them to create a brand for your business. As you can see above, Ive even made business cards that have a photo of myself holding a pen and a piece of paper.
Here is my favorite business card Ive ever made. Ive been using it as a marketing tool for years, as is the case with many of my other online businesses. Ive also made several other business cards with a photo of a pen and notepad to give a feel for who I am as a creative person. But Ive used my business cards to give myself a unique look that I don’t see anywhere else.
Ive also made a business card that looks like a really stupid business card and lets you know what its for. Ive made a business card with the name of my tattoo shop, its address, and a picture of a tattoo. Ive made a business card with a picture of a tattoo and a business card with a picture of a tattoo. This is just to let you know what a tattoo is.
Business cards are not just for the creative person. If you are like me, you also need business cards to keep in touch with your family, to keep track of your friends, keep track of your clients, keep track of your business, etc. So if you are a tattoo artist, you might need business cards too. The other use for business cards is to keep track of your own online presence. A business card with your website URL on it would be nice.
You’ll notice that I didn’t include a list of all the business cards I’ve seen in my life. I’d like to think I know them all, but I guess that is something we all have to learn as we go along. I just thought it might be nice to have a list of ones you might find useful.
Ive been thinking about creating a business card for myself, but I think I’m going to stick to my website. I know a lot of people want to know what they look like, but I think it’s important to start from the beginning. Thats why I wrote “Ive Been Thinking About Creating a Business Card for myself” (on a sticky note in my office).
Just like a business card, a business card is important because it is a way to be seen and a way to keep your name in the public eye. If you don’t have one, or don’t want one, then I don’t know what to tell you. If you do have one, then perhaps you should consider getting one for yourself. It could be a simple business card in the shape of the letter “r”.
