Today we essentially have all of the information we need about almost anything right on our smart phones, which are always with us! But don’t forget the power of the business card. Here are 5 great places to leave or pass out your cards.
#1 Always Have Them On You - This is the most important one! You never know where you will be when you just might run into someone who would be the perfect client. You do not want to be caught without one when you need it most!
#2 Coffee Shops - Have you ever noticed that most coffee shops have a bulletin board plastered with business cards? Make sure to leave a couple of yours pinned too! While people are waiting for their coffee they often browse the board and just might find something they need (like YOU)!
#3 Shipping Stores - We’re talking about the UPS and Fed-Ex stores that you can go to and get shipping supplies or ship your packages. These stores typically have a board that you can pin your card onto. You never know who might just see your card, so make sure it’s up there!
#4 Restaurants - After you have enjoyed your meal and service, simply leave a card in the little book with your tip.
#5 Offices You are a Client At - You can ask to leave your cards at any office you use, for example your doctor, dentist, hair stylist, etc!
It’s great to have a website and social media accounts, but don’t underestimate the power of business cards. Always make sure to have them on you and pass them out to everyone. You never know when you will run into your next clients.
