Out With The Old and In With The New, 3 Signs That You Need To Update Your Business Card For 2017

“Here take my business card.” This statement can be the start to building great opportunities, but it can just as easily hurt your business. Here are some signs that you need to pick up your business card game for 2017.

Outdated Information

While this may seem obvious many people hand out business cards with outdated information. Reasons for this include such as:

  • Moved locations
  • Updated contact information
  • Name change
  • A pivot in the core business model
  • Change in your legal name or position at the company

Be Memorable

Are you handing out your business card and not seeing the response rate you hoped for? Too often business cards end up in a pile or stuck in a drawer, and only pulled out when they have a need. When they do, and say to themselves “Who was that person that I met at that place that one time?” what is it about your business card that is going to remind them it was you? Personality, branding and a clearly stating what your business does all helps achieve that goal. A quality unique business card like a plastic business card will help with the first two and the memorable aspect can help make sure it does not end up in another location -- the trash.

Questions to Ask Yourself About Your Business Cards

Maybe you are unsure about your business’s gift card and can’t decide whether you should make a change or not. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Is the card flimsy or reflect the quality of your business?
  • Did your business pivot or change focuses and the card no longer focuses on your business’s focus? Or does the card list services or products you no longer offer?
  • Has a mistake been found? A spelling mistake does not reflect well.
  • Is the card design dated, or not inline with your company’s visual brand?

Often businesses and individuals choose to continue to use an old business card design. Often this is a motivated by time and cost. Plastic Resource can help with both, and the risk of waiting is greater than the rewards of taking action.

Your business card is one of the first impression someone receives about you, and you have control over that impression. Don’t let these opportunities slip away due to an inadequate business card.
