How often do you go to an event or a party, come home with 30 business cards, and forget who 90% of the people are?
Or even better yet go to a seminar or a large day long training session and come home with over 100 cards!
If you are in an industry where creativity matters, standing out at things like this is vital, and you only get about 3 seconds to do it sometimes. Since it’s Wealthy Wednesday, I figured I’d write about how important this is, and how it can make or break you if you get to choose your own business cards! You get ONE shot at a first impression, and you are competing for a select few spots in peoples memories. Not only do interesting business cards do that, but they also make people want to show others how original you are and give them your card too. For instance:
For the Website Designer (I would definitely keep this card to show someone):
I’d probably let this guy DJ my party if I ever wanted a DJ (And I might even steal the card idea!):
I’d remember who this guy was…. and show all my friends that I met a crazy person:
And this guy…. how adorable:
This guy seems to have a grasp on how to get someone to google him (because I’d want to know what comes up. Wouldn’t you?):
I WANT TO KNOW what is on this USB:
Because I love wine…..
And for anyone who likes Carley Rae Jepsen…. (I’d probably throw this out. But I’d totally remember it.):
I’ve also seen people get creative and write their information on paper airplanes, coasters, or even other peoples business cards.
So get creative and be remembered!
Until next time
