why not let the card speak for your business?

My uncle M had been singing in different bars and hotels ever since I was about six or seven years old. He does not only sing - he plays the guitar, the piano and he makes the audience laugh with his jokes and antics. Today, I heard he would also add some "magic" tricks to please his audience, a new talent he had learned from the Internet. When he was here, he took the time to have a really good photo of him taken. I can still remember his very first business card - he had used the beautiful view of the Chocolate Hills in Bohol as the background and he was sitting on a chair with the guitar on his lap. Well, that was like nine or ten years ago then... The card had his name with the title "Multitalented Artist" and contact details. With the use of business cards, he was able to manage his own career and he had a lot of bookings.

Today, you can easily have custom business cards online to speak for your business. If you want your businesses to stand out, it is not enough to have quality products or services to offer. It is not enough that there is advertising through word of mouth. You also have to make sure that more people know that your business exists; otherwise, it won't matter if you have better products or services to offer than anyone else. For this reason, business advertising and promotion is really important. This is why you have to see to it that you have business cards laying around your purse or wallet so that you can easily hand one out whenever you would bump into anyone you consider as potential customers for the business. As they always say, you will never know who you will run into.

I can vouch for the business cards! I use mine to promote my photo biz. ;)

I love your uncle's long hair---he totally looks like a musician! He's rockin' that Bohemian look right there. ;)
