Why use business cards in this digital age when it seems like everyone has a digital device? Isn't the use of the traditional business card old-fashioned? The answer is, not really.
There are many reasons why you should have a business card that you can hand out to potential customers or business acquaintances. For instance, just because digital devices, such as smartphones are everywhere, that does not make it easier to give people your business contact information. Then, there are always those people who do not own a digital device, and if they do, some don't turn on their computer every day and some do not carry their cell phones with them. Even though you can email your information to someone, that means you have to get or have their email address and then send the data. Moreover, you have to depend on that person to actually download your business card, thus your information. Wouldn't it just be easier to hand someone a business card? Here are some other reasons why you need a business card:
- Business cards have no downtime. They don't depend on the Internet to be connected.
- Business cards provide a legitimacy to your business.
- Business cards can give you an opportunity to provide promotional opportunities. For instance, a business card can be a tear-off from a brochure you are handing out. That would be called a rip card.
- Business cards are a way to network with potential customers, clients, or business associates.
This is a sample of a tri-fold brochure. Brochures are a great way to connect with your potential customers and strengthen your relationship with current customers. Brochures are a great way to show off your services or products and also grow your brand identity. Website Solutions Company will design your brochure, and with approval, get them printed and ready for use. This, along with other types of written material, websites, and other advertising, goes a long way in strengthening your brand.
Rack cards got their name from the fact that they fit into a standard brochure rack that holds 4x9-inch cards. Rack cards are an effective way to promote your business to potential customers. They can be displayed at locations where you think your customers will be: hotels, restaurants, business partners' offices, etc. You can also use a custom photo rack card as a postcard. Some businesses use several pages folded and stapled to form a book.
