Marketing: Networking with Business Cards

Tis the Season to See and Be Seen

women_biz_cardsMake the most of December. Attend holiday parties, community events and chamber of commerce events. Between now and December 15th be sure to network. Let it be known that you’re in business and connect in the community.

Have plenty of business cards. Always carry a business card. Even in social settings, you may share contact information. And, it’s a signal to people that you are serious about your business, when you do have cards at the ready.

Don’t be in the position of asking for a pen and note paper to share your contact information. Always get a business card from people you meet to add to your list of contacts.

If your business information has changed during the year, be sure to include a business card with your holiday greeting cards to business associates. Keep in touch and keep your info current.

    great site! your content is simply awesome!

    i have to agree how business cards bring customers back to you. each and every opportunity you get to hand out that card is an opportunity to make a sale. i just have to add one useful resource. Prova helped me in conceptualizing a great layout for my biz cards. the best part of it is that i got everything i needed at the price that I WANT :) now, that’s a real deal!

    Great Article. A Technique That I Used is provide educational articles on strabucks post boards. Give tips on your line of business. Get Exposure. Add your contact information at the bottom of the board. Hit a Niche market and get those business cards printed. VERY VERY IMPORTANT.
