The necessity and relevance
  • Two factors you should balance regarding your
    business card strategy are a UNIQUE DESIGN and AN
    ENGAGING delivery.
  • A snazzy card is no good if you hand it out left
    and right without an exchange of pleasantries and
    ideas, but a poor quality card can undermine even
    the best rapport or the most persuasive
    conversation.

Company Making Your Card Effective

    subject his card was so sharable that it was not

How to Choose the Best Business Card for Your
Company What to Include
  • So you have limited space to represent yourself
    above and beyond any networking conversations
    that you'll had with the people you meet. What
    should stay and what should go?
  • The consensus is that your name, company name,
    title, phone number and e-mail address are the
    bare minimum. Some crucial additions if you have
    the resources are your company logo and your Web
    address. Physical address is increasingly less
    relevant though in some industries it might still
    be advisable to include.
  • You'll also want to adapt it to your industry,
    for example, if you're in the social media
    marketing field, you might include links to your
    accounts on various platforms.

Scan friendly business card
  • In addition, as the popularity of card scanners
    grow, you'll want to make sure your card is
    scanner friendly. Here's some other options to
    consider
  • Don't place text over images
  •  If included, keep images simple
  • Avoid shading, italics or underlining
  • Use a clear, readable font such as Times New
    Roman or Helvetica
  • Make sure there's enough space between different
    lines on the card so they remain legible

How to Choose the Best Business Card for Your
Company Avoid Style Taboos
  • Here are some aesthetic choices to avoid
  • Don't be Cheap  "I will not do business with
    anyone who has a business card that says 'printed
    free by Vistaprint,'. It looks unprofessional if
    you're not willing to invest anything in making a
    good impression. 
  • Being Unoriginal  Even if you don't have a fat
    wad of cash to spend on your business card you
    shouldn't get a template because it's less
    memorable and less effective.
  • Don't Laminate It  A surface that the recipient
    of the card can write on makes it easier for them
    to take notes on your meeting to help remember
    it.
  • Don't Overcrowd It  Some people get business
    cards that fold out just so they can squeeze some
    extra information on the card but you're better
    served by keeping it simple.
