Tips for a Better Business Card for your Home Business
Even though some business owners mention they don’t use business cards or use them less than previously, especially if they operate an enterprise with an online presence, my husband and I still find business cards a necessity. Yesterday at our yard sale, there were several opportunities for Jim to hand out his business card.
As people chatted with him, they often asked what he did. That gave him an opportunity to mention his web based business. “What’s your web site?” let to his giving them a business card.
Two other people wanted our phone number to get back to us later in the week. They wanted to see if something they liked was still available when they had the money. It’s much more professional to have a business card with phone number on it than simply handing out a scrap of paper. Then the conversation evolved to, “What’s your business?” when they saw the card.
Susan at Brand Curve has a great article about business cards, Top 14 Tips to Build a Better Business Card. She summarized these tips found on Karen Saunders’ Buy Appeal Marketing.
