You are standing in front of your broken washing machine.
There is no way in hell you’re going to fix it. I mean, you’ve been trying with that for the last couple of hours. But has there anything even remotely good happened since you started? No, it didn’t.
You could scream. As you are about to step outside to get some fresh air, a paper falls down from your pockets…
You look down, and you see a… business card?
As you look at it, you start to remember. A few years ago, one of the friends of your friend gave it to you, because he was a… mechanic?
How the hell did this little paper stay in your pants for so long?
But it doesn’t matter now… because as you’re about to start looking closer you find yourself smiling a little.
Because this little business card clearly states: “Your washing machine broken? Have no fear because I am here to fix it. Simply call: …”
Just what you needed right now.
You start to dial the number, and you hear a familiar voice: “Hello?”
You know you’re saved.
The next thing you know is everything’s done. This mechanic really knew his thing, and your washing machine works better than ever.
This little story showed the answer to the most important question:
Why Would You Need a Business Card… In The 21st Century?
But let me explain this to you in more detail:
They can reach you fast
Most people are kind of… lazy. They much rather just look at a paper and call a number than look up different options on the internet.
They have already heard of you (or even talked with you)
This is even more true if they’ve even met you. (I mean, in what else way could they get your business card?)
Or, if you have been introduced to them by one of their friends… then they have probably already thought of you as a trustworthy person, so they MUCH MUCH rather call you up than someone who they don’t even know.
They can give your card to THEIR friends
Yeah, it’s the logical next step. This can either happen because 1) they have already called you and have your number, or 2) they don’t have the problem you solve, but one of their friends have it, so they give your card to them.
Okay, okay, and now we have arrived at the most important thing:
How To Make Your Business Card Look Irresistible AND How To Make It Long-Lasting?
So, first things first:
Your business card should be of good quality. I mean it represents YOU. You don’t want others to think that you’re lazy, do you? It’s your personal brand at the end of the day.
Second, it should be long-lasting. Think back to the story I told you.
If the business card weren’t long-lasting, you couldn’t call the number… and there wouldn’t be a happy ending there. :(
It should represent you. If you’re elegant, make your card look elegant as well. if you’re fun… give some fun edge to your card, use some fun colors. I think you get it.
And, of course, it should include a way for them to how to reach you (i.e. number, website, etc.)
So by just a look at your business card, they will know 1) who you are 2) what you do 3) you’re good at what you do, and 4) how to reach you.
Okay, and now…
