In this electronic era, we tend to diminished the use of business cards. We have interaction with people from Everywhere on the planet. Some of them that we never encountered face to face (or most of them).
- So, do you still need a business card?
Think about it. Every information about you is accessible online. You have Web site, signature or vCard in your email, Twitter, Social sites. Why a business card?
A business cards add a little something.
We can touch it, feel it, smell it. Of course, your card as design, colors and typeface like your Web site. But it as more. The texture of the paper you choose, it’s weight, it’s edge, etc. Everything about your business card give information about you and your organization.
When we receive your card, we have an impression, a felling that we cannot have with an electronic contact.
Can you do business without a business card? Of course. Lot of professional do. If you do 100 % of your business online, like some programmers or designers, it’s possible. If you are a real estate agent, it’s not possible. It depends of your industry.
If you have face to face meeting with your customers, business cards are important. There is still a perception that professional have card.
What is my point? Business cards are not an obligation. They are a just another marketing tool that you can leverage to develop your business. Use it wisely.
