Business Card and Social Media

Business card is necessary for every marketing professional to give his company and the employee’s contact details to the recipients. A normal card is filled with all the contact details like the name of the person, designation, contact details etc. Nowadays all these details are not enough to attract business. In these days internet contributes more to improve communication and increase your business opportunities.0
So it is not enough to print all the physical contact details in the business card. You can add more details like your email id, web url, social media identity like facebook and twitter profile ids. You can request recipients to follow you on social media, by this way both of you can become friends and share your experience in facebook and twitter. This will helps to create friendship and good long term partnership between you.
Put your social media ids in the bottom of the business card, so that anyone can easily follow you on Twitter and become friend in Facebook. A card is just for initial contact only once they met with each other they can easily strengthen their contacts via social media. In this way a good business opportunity is possible in the long run.
If you don’t have place to put your social contacts in the card then you can remove your physical address from the front side and print the social ids. Physical address can be printed in the backside of the card along with Google map.
Social media reaches strong in personal life to business activities. So promoting your business in the social media using business cards will certainly improve your business sales and helps brand reputation.
Some people may use free businesscard templates to design their card, so they can customize it according to their own needs. If you go with online printing option then you can select front and back side printing option, so that you can get your social contact printed in the backside of the card.
