Having just gone through the process of choosing a brand, logo, business card layout etc I couldn’t believe so much thought and input needs to be put into this, BUT IT DOES!
A business card tells the person you meet so much about you as a business person. Are you a little serious and austere? Are you fun loving with a positive outlook on life? Are you organised, thoughtful, meticulous – the list is endless but you get the point.
I wanted my brand website and business card to show a little of my personality – I wanted to come across as professional, friendly and approachable – hopefully this will be the case (website just at holding page stage at the moment – http://www.socialprogress.co.uk)
So, having attended my very first networking event representing my own company this week (been to lots of networking events before but not to represent Social Progress), I wanted to see the reaction of my business cards – and check out some others too. Some really good ones which told me in an instant what the person did, some I looked at & wondered what they did. Even when they told me I still didn’t know……….
Your business card is like a picture – it’s a snapshot in time and captures a moment which can be forgotten in an instant or held in your memory forever.
Tell me what you like in a business card, any really memorable ones for you? Did it help you to ‘connect’ this that person?
