Are Business Cards Still Important?

Business cards are still an important aspect of your business!

Short answer: yes, definitely. We live in a digital world which means that most of the business we do, from sending emails to networking, happens online. As networking websites and online business deals become more prevalent, you would think that tangible tools such as business cards would be a thing of the past… right? The truth is, business cards are the one thing that digital platforms simply can’t replace and this week we’re going to talk about why that is.

Networking Digitally is Impersonal

The value of networking lies in the true connections made between people. Networking websites allow for people to introduce themselves online through emails and chatting platforms, but the relationship lacks real conversation and eye contact necessary to form a true bond.

Business Cards Make a First Impression

It takes the average person 7 seconds to form a first impression. From the moment you shake hands and introduce one another, that future employer or prospective client is already making opinions based on how you interact. The best way to make a great first impression is to offer that person a business card. They know your name, but now they’ll remember it.

Prove You’re Prepared

If you want to truly show a prospective employer or client that you’re right for the job, then prove to them you’re prepared for it. When it comes to networking, you never know when you’re going to meet the best prospects. Whether you shake hands at a corporate event or run into one another at a concert, having a business card on hand will prove how serious you are about your work.
