You have just received the new batch of business cards you had printed in a reputable printing company in Dubai. They are crisp and sturdy. The texture of the material feels expensive and professional. The layout is sleek, showing all the important information about you and your business. And the design is magnificent – unique enough to be recognized, but not too adventurous to be tacky. For you, they are perfect.
Now what? How do you make the most of having such beautiful business cards to push your services, your business, or your brand? Simply put, how do you effectively get them out there and into the hands of the right people?
In this article, I am going to share to you some of best times and places to give out your business cards.
- One-On-One Meetings And Social Events
Every one-on-one meeting and social event, work-related or not, is a good chance to give out your business card. Whether you are getting to know someone you have just met, or are reconnecting and bonding with a certain social circle, you can always make the most of the engagement by extending and expanding your network by giving out your business cards.
- Conventions And Trade Shows
These are the perfect venue for giving out business cards. These events attract large sizes of crowds. And everyone is in full-on networking mode. Exhibitors and sellers are there to push their products and brands, also hoping to do some networking. They would be giving you their business cards, and you should make use of that opportunity to also give them yours.
- Non-competing Businesses
It may be a roadside café, a massage parlour, or a bookstore – if it is a business that does not (directly) compete with yours, then it can be a great venue to give out your business cards. Some establishments will even allow you to leave a few of your cards on their counter or bulletin board, free for their clients to see and take. Just make sure to ask for their card too, to reciprocate the favor.
- Complementary Businesses
Businesses that complement yours, or are simply, one way or another, related to yours, are great venues to give out your cards. For example, if you are a professional handyman, you can leave some cards on hardware stores. You are already sure that their clients have a great chance of being interested in your business too; why not maximize that?
