August is a pretty slow month for news. That must be why several bloggers are looking desperately for topics to post about. That leads us to ……. business cards. Yes, business cards. We all have them. We have our own, we have stacks of cards from previous jobs, we have cards from people, companies and publications that don’t even exist anymore.
So, the point is that business cards hang around a long time and can serve as a strong reminder of your personal and business brand.
Dave LaPlante and Seth Godin have both recently posted their thoughts on business cards. Dave’s ideas are more about utility and Seth’s are more about style. Both posts are chock full of good ideas but there are two that are the same on both and I agree:
– don’t print them yourself
– don’t have your picture on them
