5 Practical Reasons To Have A Business Card

by | Apr 25, 2019 | Gift Guide, Inspiration

They create a lasting first impression.

Corporate name cards or business cards are an essential tool when you’re networking, meeting new people or when you’re sending the kids off to school for the first time and they can’t remember your cell number. 

 

What most people fail to realise is that, besides carrying your information, business cards can also make and leave a lasting impression on the people you hand them out too. That being said, here 5 practical reasons why you should have (and always carry) a business card.

Imagine you’re at a networking event. Your main goal is obviously to connect with as many people as you can but (no surprise here), you’re not the only one. If you want to make yourself memorable in a large group of people, a simple introduction isn’t going to cut it. 

 

That’s where your business card comes in. By handing out personalised business cards, you’ll be able to help people generate their opinion of you and/or your company. And even if they do forget what your name is or what you do (which happens more often than you think), they’ll have a tangible reminder of your person and a means to get in touch with you again.

They look Professional

Can you imagine going to a networking event or business meeting and not having a business card on hand? Talk about a missed opportunity! Since many people still consider business cards to be proof of a person’s commitment and pride in their job; by not having one, you’ll definitely be taking hits to your credibility.

In addition to lending a sense of legitimacy to your persons or business, business cards can also help you seem more professional and put together.

They’re Affordable & Easy To Make.

Name Card printing for businesses is relatively inexpensive, but the impact that they can bring is insurmountable. Just imagine trying to compete with bigger brands that spend thousands on billboard adverts. There’s no way you could do that, especially if you’re on a shoestring budget. 

 

This is where personalised name cards come in. By creating a business card that is unique and memorable, your name card can double as a super effective, low-cost marketing tool. If you’re not too great at designs, not to worry! Nowadays you can even use beautiful and unique templates to create bespoke business cards designs online.

They’re Portable.

The beauty of printing out business name cards is that you’ll be able to distribute them fairly quickly to a lot of people. Due to the fact that business name cards are usually pocket-sized, you can carry them around with you and hand them out to anyone at almost any occasion. 

 

Not only will it give you the opportunity to establish and maintain contacts with people you deem important; but by handing people your name card, you’re showing them what you’re willing to do in marketing yourself and your business (something that a lot of people find to be very admirable and impressive!).

They Get The Job Done

Frankly speaking, the most important and practical reason to have a business card is that they just work. It doesn’t matter if you’re a CEO of a multi-chain conglomerate or a freelancer who’s just starting out; by having unique business cards and handing it out at any given opportunity, you will be able to generate more business for yourself while simultaneously connecting to people who could become your loyal customers or investors. 

 


And that concludes our 5 practical reasons to have a business card. So if you’ve had made your mind to get your own business card now, feel free to visit the Pixajoy website and choose your favourites!
