How are your business cards, or do you even have any?
I know some Internet marketers don’t care for business cards and don’t bother with them. And then others have lame cards – terminally plain or really low quality.
Anyhow, here are some of the cards I’ve liked from the past year to help you get ideas.
This one was paper, but that made sense since it was supposed to be cash money.
You can’t really tell here, but this is a clear card. Thick plastic. It costs more, and it leaves more of an impact.
This card was interactive and shared a little about Eric Nagel, who gave it out. He likes Tim Horton’s coffee and there was a scratch and sniff coffee thing.
When you’re at a conference and gathering lots of business cards, it’s helpful when some have a picture of the person (I have a horrible memory).
And cards that are not a conventional size always jump out at me, whether they are smaller or bigger than usual.
Finally, there is the strategy to tie the business card to the business. With this one, it’s a company with a green focus and there are two cards connected, so you can easily share, or the person with the card could give away the half cards.
Personally, I like my metal business cards. I got these from PlasmaDesign.
