A business card is one lasting impression you will have on a client. It does erase and it doesn’t forget, it will always be there. Well unless they lose it of course. When buying and creating your business card it is easy to pick a typical template at a cheap price. Here are some tips for making your business card and your business memorable.
- Make a purpose
Make sure you’re stating your purpose for the card. Just having your name and contact info is not necessary if you’re not trying to make business.
- Cover the important info
The most vital information that should be on your card is your name and business as well as your contact info. Social media is becoming the newest craze so if you have a Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for your company, give access to that too.
- Use a picture
Everyone knows the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” that is very true when it comes to making a business card. It is also easy to remembers someone face rather than their name. Make them recognize you!
- Use the back
Using the back is an awesome way to spread out your information. No need to have it all on the front.
- Use good paper
Using flimsy cheap paper, your card is going to look terrible over time while sitting in someone’s wallet for a year. Make sure your paper quality is great, it shows that you’re not cheap.
- Use standard size
The main focus of a business card is to have minimal information but just enough so someone can contact you. Using a 3×5 card you are able to use up your space without cramming unnecessary information on it.
- Be creative
Standing out is something that is really needed when getting business these days. Having a card that is memorable one (in a good way) can increase your chances incredibly.
- Simple is better
While being creative is imperative, make sure it’s not too crazy and taking away from the goal of the card, to get business.
- Explain your business
There is nothing worse than getting a business card and not knowing or remembering what it was for. In one sentence create a slogan or just explain what you do how it benefits others.
- Spell check, spell check, spell check.
This is your lasting impression on someone; you want to make sure they know your best assets. Even if spelling isn’t one of them, have someone proofread to make you seem more credible.
These are great simple things you can take into consideration when making your business card. When your card looks good, your business will do even better.
