Business cards are a highly personalized form of marketing and one of the best ways to make a great and lasting impression. They can never be replaced in this era of the digital age as it has a human factor in developing a personal connection. Also, it is an extension of your brand and helps in creating a good first impression.

Handed out to prospects and clients, business cards are no longer cards that just include contact details such as email address, phone number, website, etc. It is also an opportunity to promote your business or brand in a creative way through an attractive design. Here are a few more reasons why business cards are still very effective -

  • It gives a personal touch - When handing out a business card, your clients do not merely get the contact details. You spend time talking and connecting. A business card adds a personal touch to building that relationship.

  • It makes you appear professional - Your company will look more legitimate when you have a stylish, sleek card to represent your services. You don't want to be the only person to show up to a networking event without your business card!

Your business card will often be the first glimpse someone catches of your brand so portraying your brand accordingly through your business card is essential.

I love this! I recently created business cards and I do feel there is huge difference in the conversation regarding my food blog. Instead of trying to explain myself and my business, I ask the person to access the QR code on my business card so they can see for themselves. 😊


This was really informative.
