What does your Business card speak?
Considering the layout.
What people don’t see is the process of the design of this card. It took 70+ hours of creation, 8 minimum drafts, couple aggressive conversations (tough love convos) & countless “I am not ready to print” moments. So thought I’d share some key components to why it’s important to have a business card for your profession.
1. First Impressions- Your business card is a representation of yourself and even your company. It requires less explanation about your basic information since your job title and your name are printed clearly on the business card. The design and cleanliness of your card explain your personality indirectly
(My card, open ended & clean bold).
2. Professionalism – Having your business card ready at networking events and meetings shows that you are a well-prepared and focused businessman. It implies that you are ready and confident to put your name and your brand out there.
3. If your business card has a unique or creative design, there may be a chance of people sharing your business card to others. This further markets your brand and you as a businessman or businesswoman.
Fun fact: The history and evolution of business cards may make them sound outdated, yet they are still important when it comes to Marketing and Networking. The Japanese etiquette of exchanging business cards shaped the formality and the effectiveness in connecting people in the business world.
So shoot for biz card stars and don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like some pointers on the start process of your business card. - Your #JNBusinessCoach
