Ah, the business card. Humble in stature, it’s a small piece of printed card that is so much more than it appears. We’ve compiled a list of reasons why business cards are so important, to give you an accurate grasp of just what you invest in when you have your business cards printed and handed out to people.
It’s going to be Impressionable
More often than not, your business card is the first point of contact between you and potential clients. It has to make a stand for you and your business, and it has to do it with every person it comes across. Your business card is one out of hundreds people come into contact with, and it has to stand out from all the rest. That first impression is all important, or they’ll never take a card or throw it in the bin, and you’ll have missed out on a customer.
It’s going to be Memorable.
People grab business cards often, some even collect them. At whatever functions you go to you’re going to meet and greet a lot of people. They’re going to get a lot of business cards, and yours is going to be one of them. Yours has to scream out at them. It has to catch their eye, it has to impress them. They have to be able to pin your face or business to that card, and they have to fish your card out someday and find those crucially legible details.
It’s going to Direct Them.
That card is like a road sign, telling traffic where to go to reach its destination, or a storefront sign beckoning customers in. If it wasn’t for your business card people wouldn’t know where to find you, or wouldn’t know you even existed if it wasn’t for some very specific internet search. They can look at your business card and find your address, your website, your phone number. Everything they need to make contact with you or your business.
It’s going to be You
Of course we’re not saying it’s you specifically, but it is a part of your corporate portfolio; its job isn’t just to convey information, it tells a story. Your card must be in line with your brand identity so that a potential client can see more than just the essentials. They must really get a feel of who you are as a business, what you offer, and what kind of experience you’ll give them when they come to you. It has to portray your corporate identity, because it’s going to be all they have of you after they’ve walked away.
