Why You Need To Have A Variety of Business Cards

Business Cards

Business cards…

It’s important to have a variety of ’em! As you can see in my photo above, I didn’t want to limit myself to only being a beauty blogger. This post is certainly not about beauty! LOL hence why I just dropped the ‘beauty’ and left ‘blogger’ on the card instead.

Something new & fresh

As people, do we stay the same? NO! We are constantly evolving — so should your business cards! Ya’ll don’t want to see my business cards from 3 years ago. I don’t know what I was thinking! The only reason I didn’t upload the photo to this post is because I’m not sure if you have phone/computer insurance if it stops working immediately upon viewing it. Hahah! One word: HOT MESS…Well actually that’s two. You get the point 😉

Trust me, eventually you will get bored of handing out the same ol’ flamboyant glittery pink business cards to people. So don’t be afraid to switch it up!

Markets

If you’re a freelancer, definitely consider having a maximum of 3 different cards. I have two! A conservative one, and a cutesy fun one. Being that I’m a Freelance Makeup Artist, I want to attract more than one kind of market! I wouldn’t want to hand a lawyer a flamboyant hot pink glittery business card. Handing over that professional business card lessens my chances of it getting tossed. Analyze the crowd and supply what’s appropriate 😉 I have a business card for each type of customer I’d want to attract. From professionals to high schoolers.

If you’re wondering how to get started on business cards, Vistaprint & Zazzle are dope! They’re very cute and affordable. The best part is that you can customize your business cards to your liking. Everyone walks away happy!

    this is so true its just like having a professional looking email or knowing how to speak in different crowds…..your card speaks not only for your craft but your brand and they get passed around/shown to others more than we realize
    this was great
