In a world where everyone is Google-able and smartphones can exchange info by touching, most people still insist on carrying business cards. They remain useful for accuracy’s sake and when travelling abroad, where contact details may get lost in translation. But here at home, use your card wisely.
- Don’t be a human spammer. Have a few cards on hand, and hand one out only on request.
- Don’t clutter your card with every address, number, online profile, blog and website you have. Just the basics. The rest is online.
- No flowers, guitars, waves, inspirational quotes or slogans.
