In today’s ever changing landscape of business, having a good first impression is ultimate to landing that deal that makes or breaks you. So how does one do it?
Business Cards are so last century, since we just kick people into our phones, and forget them, unless…they have the service we need. But what if our business card is really unique?
And provides all the information we need to know about the company or services they provide?
Well, I attempted mine using only Powerpoint for card design and a logo.
Utilizing only a basic Powerpoint Presentation format (the green wave to the left), Text boxes, and inserting a JPEG of a logo made from another Presentation, the card works well for this particular business.
- Company Name is Clear
- Logo reinforces the name
- What I can do (services) is listed on the card
- Contact information is clear
- A motto works for the company
- A picture of the person makes them more memorable and unique
By no means would this work for other ventures, however, for a writer or independent entreprenuer, it does address all the basics of what can I do?, how do I contact you?, do you have a guiding force? and is there somewhere to find you or leave information outside of phoning or emailing you?
While I only did this as a trial example, I might step up to a better program and find a good outlet to print up some cards.
I hope your business cards reflect what you do, how to contact you, and what is your motto in business. People like connections to solid outfits – be that outfit that gets passed on via a card.
(Note: Due to the size of actual card – the JPEG image inserted is not so clear. I am sure I could improve that – but for this exercise, it worked.)
