Over 90 percent of all business cards are thrown away without a second glance.

A professionally designed business card can increase their effectiveness. And an attractive, well-thought out logo design can help “brand” your business.

Extra business cards in your wallet, purse, or briefcase increase your chances to spread the news about your business.

Here are a few ways to use your business cards more effectively:

  • Distribute business cards to happy customers
  • Place your business card in classified sections of publications such as newspapers and magazines
  • Employ the help of your family by giving them business cards to pass out to their friends and business associates
  • Pass cards out at parties, and exchange business cards with friends.
  • When you are at an appointment, leave your business cards at a physician’s office, beauty salon, etc.
  • Tack your business cards on bulletin boards at schools, in your local grocery stores, health clubs, libraries, and community bulletin boards.
  • When you send mail, enclose business cards, even in your bills.

Effective business cards are well-designed and include all pertinent contact information.
