Use your business card as a powerful networking tool As your identity, your business card can be used as a powerful networking tool when you market your business. Assuming that it has all the relevant information such as your contact details, social networking information, website address among others, here are some pointers to ensure that you get the best benefits out of your UK business cards: •

It goes without saying that you should always carry your business cards with you, just like you check to see if you have your wallet. You never know who you might meet, be it at your local mall or at the garage and you might probably be just one business card away from that huge business deal.

Each time you make a payment, add your business card to it. Networking is a powerful thing and the person who receives your card might be looking for exactly what you are offering, or may know someone who is.

When you give someone your business card, remember to ask for theirs. Business cards are good conversation triggers. Look at their card, ask questions and make notes on the card to help you follow up later before putting it away carefully in your wallet.

Distribute your UK business cards among family and friends so that they can refer you to their network of contacts. It also makes it easier for them to share your details with others.

Be bold and ask for referrals when you hand out your cards. Most people feel less cornered when you ask them for a referral as it takes away the onus from them.


Sometimes, chance meetings turn into big business proposals. This includes family gatherings and children’s birthday parties which could turn out to be excellent networking events without the pressure normally associated with purely business situations. Carry your UK business cards wherever you go.

Identify opportunities to network. If there is a road show or a fair in your area, volunteer to help so that it places you in a position to interact with a lot of people who might be interested in what you have to offer. Use your UK business cards to help others to help yourself.

After each business meeting, send a handwritten note along with your business card appreciating them and you can be sure the recipient will remember you and call you when there is a need for your services.

Add a catchy tagline to your business card to intrigue the recipient so that they associate it with your company to help you in your branding efforts.
