If you are just starting a business, chances are you are a bundle of nervous energy. There are so many decisions to be made! There are people to hire, unless you are going it alone in the beginning, there are office spaces to be rented, paperwork to be done, work spaces to be coddled together, regulations to be aware of; and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With so many things screaming for your attention from every direction, you may be feeling overwhelmed, maybe like you’re drowning a bit. With the stress that comes with all this thinking and planning, little things may slip your mind. You probably don’t want yet another decision to make, but there is one decision that, however small it seems, can really impact the future of your business.
The Business Tactic That is Never Outdated
One thing that seems so small, but can have an enormous impact on your success levels, are business cards. Business cards may seem outdated in the age of the internet and ever-changing technology, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. On the contrary, having a physical business card to hand prospective customers can help cement your business in their minds. When your business is different from all others surrounding it, who only have a website address for people to tap into their smart phones, it will stand out in the minds of potential customers.
But don’t think that you can’t put your website address on the card. You can still direct customers to a well-done website that showcases your business. Here are some things that can be included on a good business card:
- Your name
- Business name
- Business address
- Website URL
- Picture of you
- Slogan or quick summary of your business model and purpose
- A short review or testimonial
Do It Yourself or Hire Out?
When you think of getting a huge stack of business cards printed, you probably think of either purchasing a large pack, and making purchases as you run out. Alternatively, if you are good with a computer and have some design skills, you may think of doing the task yourself. While these are both valid options, you’re either going to wind up spending a lot of money, or spending a lot of time. Two things, that as a new business owner, you probably don’t have a lot of.
Another option is a business card printing service. These services will get all the information they want from you and will go to work creating a unique, professional design that can be printed and sent to you on an as needed basis. These services are very budget friendly, and great for those who want more control in the design process, but don’t have hours to dedicate to the project.
With a business card printing service, you can get this important task done without going broke or burning up time. Be different. Stand out with well-made business cards.
