I never had much of an opinion of bloggers getting business cards, I didn’t really understand the concept. In my opinion business cards were for people like my dad, who had a role in a company and needed business cards to professionally promote themselves. I didn’t really see how it would work in the blogging world until I went to the recent TOWIB event. Everyone was swapping details of their blogs and Twitter’s and I was just having to write down mine on scraps of paper for everyone. So I decided I should give in and invest in some business cards for my blog. The lovely Bex said I should take a look at MOO, where she got hers, and after some fiddiling around I came out with these..
When it came to the photo on the front of the card I decided to go with my blogs header. I spent ages working on getting my header just the way I’ve wanted it (with some help from the Photoshop whiz boyfriend), and because of this I want people to recognize it and remember my blog. When it came to the back of the card I just went with my name, my blog URL and then my other contact details, along with the pattern of my blog header down the side. When it came to price, I paid around the £20 mark for 50 cards – including £2 more for the rounded corners. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they turned up – within a week of ordering them! They also came in a smart little card holder! I’ve had these cards for a couple of weeks now and so far I’ve only given out one to my mum, so I still have 49 left to give out and ‘network’ with.
What do you think of business cards?
Do you have any?
