4 Reasons Business Cards Still Matter

Written by - 12/04/2016

As everything becomes digital it’s not absurd to think that business cards may quickly become redundant. Realistically however this is far from the truth. Business cards still hold a valuable place in the world, here’s 4 reasons you still need a business card in your wallet.

1. Memory

Let’s face it, we all have a rubbish memory. When meeting people at a networking event or a trade show, you’re likely concentrating on the conversation in hand, rather than the name of the person or the company they work for. Walk away without swapping business cards and chances are you’ll have forgotten their name and be asking yourself “who did I speak to again?”.

2. First Impressions

First impressions are so important and handing someone your business card shows you’re prepared and professional, rather than scribbling your details on a napkin or spare piece of paper. A well designed business card helps establish your brand when meeting potential new clients or connections and this will hold a lasting impression.

It’s easy to get lost in a technological world, your business card is a chance to stand out and make connections.

3. Personal Touch

Business cards give a personal touch rather than being another contact in someones phone or email list that can easily get lost and forgotten about. Having a business card helps you to stand out from the crowd and can act as a conversation starter. Make sure your business cards brings personality and individuality!

4. Be Prepared

You never know when you could meet a potential client, it could be a passing conversation on the train or in line at a coffee shop. Having your business card to hand means you’ll not miss out on any opportunities, no matter how small and shows you are prepared at all times. Even if the conversation is brief, you never know, simply handing over a business card could be the most important thing you ever do.
