I believe they are IN one hundred percent. As an event, head shots and family Photographer, there hasn’t been an event or networking meeting I have photographed or attended, where I haven’t been asked for my business card. I enjoy interacting with people and feel that pulling out my phone to add their contact information creates an immediate disconnect. Exchange business cards, at the end of a conversation and later connecting with them on LinkedIn or via email has worked out well for me.
I purchased a super cute business card holder to keep the business cards I receive, nice and organized. Let’s be honest, those of us who still believe in business cards spend hours if not days, designing them to make sure it reflects our brand and looks appealing. Storing them in style is the least I can do to give them the respect they deserve right?
There are however, those who think business cards are dead – their views here – and there are others, like me, who agree business cards are still very relevant- their views here. Summarizing, if you and your audience believe in business cards, it is a no brainer or controversy. Thanks for reading!
