Do you still need a Business Card

With the age of social media, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, many people still wonder whether a business card is still important and whether it’s worth the money.

“I’ve started an online shop and I’m unsure whether I should get a business card, is this just another expense that I can avoid when starting out?”

Reality is that marketing yourself (as a professional) or promoting your small business is critical and business cards are still incredibly important to sell yourself or your business – particularly if you want to get noticed and stand out from the crowd.

The last thing you want is being at a conference or networking event and being the only person without a business card.

Reasons you should get a business card

  • Perfect way to create a connection face-to-face
