Beyond Business Cards

by

Traditionally, business cards are used for, well, business, as the name might suggest.  :)  They’re valuable tools in the realms of networking, company perception, and of course, ensuring your new found connection can contact you tomorrow!

Is a business card an important part of a successful Zazzle business?  Absolutely!

Not only are you better equipped to network, but the business card is tangible proof of the amazing quality and variety available at Zazzle.  To present your business as cutting edge or unique, choose the skinny or chubby card and go for the gold stock – why not? :)  You’re blingin’ and you know it.

If you can’t think of a business card design on your own, browse the Zazzle templates – and be sure to add your own logo, if you have one!  Here are a few examples:

But business cards aren’t just for business anymore.  Take business cards in Japan, for example; cards here are also used socially, with teenagers and adults exchanging business cards at the most casual of gatherings.  Trading business cards is almost like a game, with business card storage containers featuring prominently in any stationary or luggage shop, nationwide.

There are innumerable ways business cards can contribute to the success of your Zazzle store.  Here are a few alternative uses of the cards:

1. Design a skinny card to look like a coupon and promote a discount at your store.  Whenever you have a seasonal sale on your items, print up a bunch of skinny cards to hand out at work, at the gym, at family functions, or a random encounter in an elevator!

2. Use the chubby card to go into greater detail about your business.  What’s your business creed, what demographic do you speak to, is there an interesting story behind the birth of your business?

3. Use the chubby card to display your designs or photos as a mini-portfolio

4. Product line ideas to stock in your store:

  • Collectible cards
  • Sport cards
  • Recipe cards

Zazzle is currently having a 50% off sale on all types of businesscards:  visit zazzle.com/businesscards

Promote the discount to your database of buyers or use it for your own business before the deal ends!

Best of Luck!
