I am always asking myself if I am “selling myself” or “selling my work”. Do I really want to get in touch with clients? Do I want to help them? Do I want to earn enough money to retire comfortably? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you’re probably not selling yourself. If you’re selling yourself, you are selling it to the world.
Selling yourself to the world is probably one of the easiest ways to lose money, as anyone who is out there on the internet is bound to. So it’s important to get yourself a business card that speaks to your identity as a business professional.
I guess you could say that you’re selling yourself in the same way you sell your car, but I think it’s a little more interesting. While you have to sell yourself, you actually have to know yourself. You have to be able to relate to the world around you, so you need to make sure that your business card speaks to who you are, not just what you do.
The business card is just like your car. It has to be real, it has to work, and it has to be in color so that people will recognize your face when you walk into a store. The best business cards are all in black and white so that you can see your name and the company logo in the same color. A business card with white and black lettering on the same page is the worst thing you can put on a page.
You should also send the same address to your business card as your website, so that when you look it up in a search engine, it will show up first. To be safe, send the address in plain text. If your company name is on the card, you can always add a link to your company website, too.
Cards are just as bad as e-mail and web forms, so if you send a letter to a business in plain text, someone can see it from anywhere. If you put your company name on a card, then your company name is just as likely to get your address published in a search engine as your website. So if you want your company name to show up higher on search engines, you better make sure that your website is up to snuff.
Card companies in particular use search engine optimization to give their website a leg up, and they should. But in general, companies don’t really care if they get their name on the card as long as it’s well placed and it’s not blatantly obvious who owns it.
The card companies that are the most notable in this space are the ones that have the best search engine optimization (SEO) and pay the most (CMS or otherwise) for their site to rank well. We have all seen how much money they spend on SEO, and what they get for their money. The only reason they should care is if you have better SEO (which you should) because they will use that to improve their business in the eyes of the search engines.
Business cards are a great way to communicate with potential customers. You can even say that your business cards are your business cards when you are on the phone to people, which you have to be on the phone to every day. These cards are very similar to a Facebook status update.
On the surface, these business cards are similar to a Facebook status update. That is, they tell you that you have a new business. What is different though is that Facebook status updates are typically public and you can post them to Facebook, Twitter, or even a blog. Business cards, on the other hand, are private messages left on your business cards to potential clients.
