9 Ways Business Cards Can Still Be Effective In The Digital Age

9 WAYS BUSINESS CARD MARKETING CAN STILL BE EFFECTIVE IN THE DIGITAL AGE There's been an awful lot of hype about digital marketing in the last few years. SEO, blogging, social media marketing, website optimization they all offer benefits. We're firmly in the digital age today. However, that doesn't mean that traditional marketing methods are useless. Many of them are alive and well, and they can still offer businesses some significant advantages.This is particularly true in the case of business cards. How can a simple rectangle of paper benefit your company when all the gurus are trumpeting the need for digital technology? MARC JACOB HERE ARE NINE WAYS. 1 MAKES A FIRST IMPRESSION OF YOUR BRAND Sure, social media accounts, websites, blogs and other digital media help with branding, but your business card is responsible for the first impression of your brand. When you meet someone, you hand them a business card. You don't log into your website so they can see your information. NETWORKING No business can be successful without a network in place. These are business owners in the same or a related industry. They're like-minded entrepreneurs. They're other local businesses. Business cards make networking far simpler. SS THEY TRANSLATE EASILY If you really want an indication of just how important business cards still are, look at the number of smartphone apps designed to translate them to a digital format. They're easily translatable, and they're essential to your success. 4 PEOPLE EXPECT THEM When was the last time you met a new business contact and didn't ask for a business card, or take one when offered? That's the point people expect you to have them, and they'll notice if you don't. 5 THEY SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY There are few better ways to show your business' personality and culture than with a custom designed business card created for just that reason. CARDS GET SHARED When a friend or family member asks one of your customers where they turn for the services or products you offer, chances are good they give them your business card. It's an essential part of word of mouth marketing. 上 7 SHOW THAT YOU'RE PROFESSIONAL Sure, slick websites and robust blogs are great, but few things are as professional as a custom designed business card. Of course, you need to do it right, but the right stationery company can offer cutting edge design solutions to make you stand out. EXO MUNITY 肝 ALL YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION What do you want customers to do? You want them to get in touch so you can fill their needs. Business cards put all of your contact information at their fingertips, without the need to go online searching for it. Of course, you have to make sure you include multiple contact methods, including phone, email, website and more. JOHN DOE 123 456 789 EXAMPLE@MAIL.COM EXAMPLE.COM ALWAYS AVAILABLE Internet access can be spotty. Smartphones can't always connect, and sometimes 4G signal is lacking. Batteries need to be charged. The power goes out. Business cards don't have any of those problems. They're always on, always available, always working for you. If you don't have business cards, you're short-circuiting your company's success.
