Business Cards

Whilst at a business networking meeting this morning the subject of business cards came up. I am sure that the designers will have their very specific views on this which I would love to see.

What is the purpose of your business card?

I think that it is to give the recipient of the card as much information as they need to get in touch with you in any way that they feel most comfortable. This now means that I use both sides of the business card so that I can have:

Name
Address including postcode that the satnav will get you to the front door
phone number – both mobile & landline
email
website
Twitter
facebook
LinkedIn

I know that some people who use skype put those details on as well. This is why I am using both sides of the card.

What would you add? What would you leave off? Do tell.

    I do have business cards but very seldom use it. On my business cards I definitely make it easy for people to connect with me especially via Skype and Twitter.

    I think that it really depends on what your business is about, for example. If you work in a warehouse, I think its very unlikely that you will need to put your facebook info on the card. But on the other hand, if you work in a coffee shop, I think it may be helpful to have that same info on there. Due to job, I try to put as many contact sources that I use as tools for business on my business cards. You wont see me adding yahoo chat or anything like that on there, that’s for sure.
