With almost everything turning digital or having some digital version of it, it begs the question, are business cards still relevant? Should people invest in them? While there are not yet many alternatives to business cards that are distributed in person, LinkedIn, and digital cards have risen in popularity. These two methods are vital to have but are still just supplements to a business card. To put it simply, not having a business card at an event can do you some harm and look unprofessional. And you don’t want to have just any business card; you want one that will look sharp and represent you well. If you have been on the hunt for a business card like this, your wait is over. At Phoenix Blueprints, we can produce the business card of your dreams. But, if you still are hesitant and don’t think you need one, keep reading to see the many benefits of having business cards.
- The Easiest Way to Exchange Information
Even with tools like LinkedIn, there is no easier way to exchange information than through a business card. At an event or in an office setting, no one is going to have the time or patience to ask you how to spell your name and connect with you on LinkedIn. People want all of the information they need in one place until they can get back to their office and do some more research. With a business card, you have all of the critical information such as your name, company name, title, phone number, email address, and services, ready to hand out. People can walk by you and pick up your business card or grab one if they speak with you and like what they hear. It’s also incredibly easy to give anyone a business card, even a stranger. With a business card, all you have to do is pass the card to them and take theirs if they give it to you. No extra information or steps needed.
- Convenient to Carry
A benefit of a business card that is unmatched is the ability to bring them everywhere you go. Some people even make sure they keep a stack of them in their pockets or purses at all times. You never know who you are going to run into, so you might as well come prepared. With business cards, it’s never an inconvenience to bring them with you or keep them in your car. They are small in size and thin enough to slip anywhere.
- Brand Awareness
Another perk of business cards is that they create brand awareness. It’s true what they say; your logo, colors, and general look of your business materials can tell people a lot about your company. One look at your business card and potential customers, clients, and partners can get an idea of what you’re all about. That’s one of the many reasons we also recommend getting quality business cards as opposed to those that are plain. A plain-looking business card may be thrown in a stack of one hundred other cards after an event is over. But, with a business card that is well done and bold, your company will stand out from the rest. If you aren’t sure what kind of look you want for your business card, it’s always best to keep things somewhat streamlined with your companies brand and general feel. If you already have a color scheme and a logo, try and stick with that. As far as placement and formatting go, our team at Phoenix Blueprints can help you out and make your card stand out from the rest.
