I missed doing this last week.
I actually talked about this topic at a local business group meeting. We were discussing hashtags and I mentioned doing this.
We also discussed business topics, networking, the 80/20 “rule”, and social media.
Ironically I ran out of business cards this week. Yet it was time because I need new ones. Sometimes I design and make my own in between orders . It is a creative break to make them.
Business cards have been a sticky point with my business. I cover so much territory with so many different people. How do I summarize everything on a little piece of paper?
People remember the name of my business and it is a good jump off point for a conversation. I could carry around separate cards for everything I do. I know I am not the first and the last person who has a business with different aspects.
People often mistake it for a florist or flower business. I still get calls asking me if I want to bulk order flowers.
I also finally came up with a “motto” a couple of weeks ago. When I post it, it is catching attention. The question comes down to: do I put it on the card?
What do I put on the card? Do I make one for each thing I do? I continue to ponder….
