The right business card has been an effective marketing tool for anyone who takes themselves and their work seriously, A good business card is an essential element in becoming unforgettable in the mind of the person that receives it. Among the first things many obtain upon getting a promotion, new job title, or when starting a new business, are a set of business cards. To some, their business seems to lack legitimacy, unless they have that 3”x5” piece of paper that boldly states the company, ones title/position and the various ways to contact them. Although that information is necessary, what does it really tell the person to whom its given? What about the business card motivates the recipient to take the next step and call upon you? A business card should be designed to attract and acquire new customers and clients to your products or services. Too many people today think a business card designed and printed on their home computer will be a good enough tool to get them noticed and remembered. However, a well-designed, high quality card makes you and your business look professional; while a homemade card typically gives the impression of an amateur taking a stab at being in business. Another choice that many make includes the use of one of the many online “insta-card” companies. In exchange for you $15 or $20, you get a choice of an over-used, boring template, that hundreds of others have used. If you want prospects, clients and customers to take you seriously, you should consider enlisting the services of a professional company such as EQ Media Solutions, and follow these 10 Tips to Getting More T&A with Your ULTIMATE Business Card!
