I met this young guy the other day … turns out he was an Internet marketer. Part way through the conversation I asked for his business card. He stood there and for five minutes told me why Internet marketers didn’t NEED business cards. The main gist was that because Internet marketers were on the Internet (duh) they didn’t need to market in the real world.
Now how stupid is that? How was I supposed to find his website? How was I supposed to contact him just in case I wanted to promote him. Turns out I don’t. And if I did? Well I guess, somehow I’m supposed to remember his website, or even his name and find him. I don’t think I want to.
The bottom line? Don’t be STUPID. You’ve GOT to Have a Business Card. Crikey you can get 100 free cards from Overnight Prints!
Here is an amazing display of THE most creative business cards you’ve ever seen from the good folks at CreativeBits. I’m not sure where I’d file the cloths pin in my rolodex (yes I DID say rolodex … another post). I DO love the sprouting card, but I’m not sure I want this in my rolodex either!
There’s a page two … so be sure to look at these too. Then go out and GET a business card.
