How to use Business Cards to Network
Business cards are more than just contact details on a piece of paper. A business card is an invaluable marketing tool for any organisation regardless of size or sector.
- The most obvious function of a business card is that it simplifies the process of exchanging contact details with potential clients, suppliers, those who you work alongside and a even random strangers who might just present a great opportunity in the future, but it also encourages a swap of information, and exchange, and it is from exchanges such as these that potential great deals are made.
- The very nature of a business card also means that long after you have met someone and exchanged cards, your business card is in their possession, with your easy to access contact details ready to make that big deal. Your business card serves not only to provide your contact details, but it is also the first impression many people get of your company, you and what it is you have to offer them. As we know all too well, first impressions last, so make this particular networking tool as impactful as possible. You want to be remembered, you want to be top of mind. A great way to ensure you leave a lasting impression is through the design of your business card. Be creative, but make sure that your business card is easy to read, that all the information is there, and that it is very clear what you offer. Think about someone finding your business card several months later and not being able to recall exactly when they met you. Does your business card let them know what you do? It should.
- By providing people with your business card you create credibility for your business. You are putting your products and services out there in the public sphere and are standing by them. You are putting your name to what you do which means you are proud of what you offer. People pick up on this when engaging in business deals and it creates a certain level of consumer confidence.
You should always have a few cards handy. Whether you carry them in your wallet or leave them in the car. You never know when you might meet your next big customer or investor, it might be in the boardroom or the queue at the supermarket. The great thing about carrying business cards is it means you are your own mobile marketing department.
And remember, when you hand out your business card make an impression, make sure that the person you give it to will remember you six months down the line when they pull that business card out. And follow up with a short communication to keep yourself top of mind.
