Are business cards still relevant?

Jul 16, 2020

The short answer is yes, they provide you with a quick and easy way to supply important contact information in a professional manner and also give your business extra credibility while in talks regarding work and collaborations.

Business cards are perfect for networking

Networking isn’t for everyone, but it’s great to connect with other business which could potentially lead into a project opportunity.

While at a networking event, you may encounter a scenario where an exchange of details occurs. With this in mind, it is not ideal to have a pen and paper to hand, or even to exchange numbers by reaching for your mobile phone, as this could be considered rude. We believe that the most effective and professional way to handle this situation is to utilise your business cards. Business cards are quick, easy, and efficient, as well as providing an opportunity to get your business’s personality across with their unique design.

A business card is more personal and can help represent your company

A business card may very well be the first thing that a potential customer sees that is related to your company, so making sure they get the very best impression is paramount. Businesses can very easily be interpreted as bland and unoriginal from a quick glance of their business card, so it is essential that you spend time to get the design and overall feel of your card right.

How can a business card help my business?

A business card can help your business in multiple ways:

  • The fact that you have business cards may ease some concerns if you are a small business as it shows you are committed to your business.
  • The design of your business card can give a potential lead an idea of your company’s personality. A professional design really does go a long way.
  • The type of card used can make a difference. A thick and flimsy business card could provide your potential client a cheap feeling which may rub off on your company’s reputation. A thick quality business card would provide a more professional experience.

There are many factors that go into the perfect business card but we believe they are still a relevant and beneficial marketing tool to utilise.
