Are you content with the way that you use business cards to market your products or service? Business cards are one of the most basic tools in your frugal marketing arsenal. Here are some ways that you can market your business using your business cards.
Mail your business cards to your contacts.
They may have lost your card or given it to someone.
This way they always have your info.
Make your business cards magnets.
Some people collect magnets.
This will give your business card a longer shelf life.
Pass them out everywhere you go. Pass them out at church, the grocery store, the barber shop, networking events, the airport, the hotel, leave them on bulletin boards. EVERYWHERE!
You never know who is going to become a potential client or source of referrals. You can be sure that if someone does not have your contact information they will not be able to contact you to inquire about your product or service.
Put them in bills when you mail your payment. Mail them to people that send you junk mail if they supply a return envelope. This does not cost you any postage at all.
Put a discount on them. Offer something free. When you send someone a greeting card, include one of your business cards.
Business cards can secure major deals for you, but only if you know how to use them properly. Start implementing these tips today and increase your customer base tomorrow.
