5 ways to use your Business Cards more effectively

Written by Brandon Hopkins

Continued from page 1

Since most of us are not in a need based business we have to get our potential clients a reason to remember us and keep our cards.

Why does someone want your business card? If you cannot answer that easily, maybe it is time to think about a new business card design.

Does your business card have valuable information on it? By valuable I mean a map, discount, calendar, measurements, charts or anything relevant to your industry?

If it doesn't, you may want to think about adding a value feature to your business card.

4. Leave them where you spend your money

Just last night I went to eat at a Mexican restaurant, and sitting onrepparttar counter I saw about 30 cards for a car salesman sitting in a plastic business card holder. I askedrepparttar 149435 girl atrepparttar 149436 counter why they were there and she said "He said he was going to leave them for customers."

This is just one example of somewhere you could leave your business cards. Other places include barber or beauty shops, medical offices including dentists, family medicine, chiropractors, and hospitals.

These places are prime territory!

Remember to ask if they mind, and tell they how much you appreciate it.

5. Ask for an opinion

"Can I ask you a quick question? What do you think of my new business card design?" Then you hand them a business card.

No matter what they say, now they have your business card. When they try to hand it back, tell them you had thousands printed, and they can have that one.

Thank them for their time and tell them if they ever need what you sell or promote, your contact information is onrepparttar 149437 card.

If you were able to implement just one of these 5 ideas each day, you would have more business that you could handle!
