Business cards are everywhere these days. The fact is, we are all becoming more and more of a digital nomad. And, more and more of us are starting to take advantage of the opportunity to work from any place we can. The thing is, I don’t think that anyone is truly self-aware. But, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to be, and that means taking self-defense classes or a little bit of training.
Business cards are the new, shiny new thing coming out of the digital nomad scene. We already have a whole group of people who are working hand in hand with us to really take us beyond our limits, though they are mostly getting a little bit older, and they are doing some really great things. They have an array of abilities, skills, and attitudes that nobody can comprehend.
I’ve heard that business cards have a lot of success with salespeople who are trying to do something a little bit different, but its not clear to me how that works. Business cards are good for marketing and for keeping your name out there.
Business cards are great for keeping your name out there. If you are just starting a new business or if you are getting ready to go public, it is a fantastic tool to have. But they can also be detrimental to your business. For example, a business card with your company logo on it can give you the potential to be called into the office and “test” your product or services, so to speak.
I’ve been asked this question a lot and the most common answer is that you should never use them in person. They are a great tool for online marketing but they can be detrimental to your business. They can make it seem as if your company is not very active online, or that you are only doing it online. And the worst part is that many people use them to promote themselves online, just for the fun of it.
To be honest, I think the use of business cards online is a problem. I think the best way to get your name out there is to go to your website and give your contact information out to people who are interested in purchasing your services or products. This also helps you to stay in front of the right people. But business cards can be a huge barrier to the right people coming in to see a real person.
The problem is that businesses and people use these cards to create an image of you online. If someone is not in a good mood, the card may make it seem like they lack confidence. But you can’t have that. You can only say things that are consistent with what is on the card, and if you are not consistent with that, you lose your credibility.
So the best way to stay in front of the right people is to maintain good business cards. So if you have the right business cards, then it will be easy to make it look like you are legit.
The best business cards are the ones that are consistent with the content. So if you have a business card with a picture of you with your kid playing soccer, that’s great but it is very inconsistent with the content of your business. Instead, try to design a card that is consistent with the content. For example, instead of having a picture of you with your kid playing soccer, try to have a picture of you with your kid in a park.
I like the idea on cards with a picture of you with your kid playing soccer and you can send them to me.
