Business Card Giveaway {And Some Advice}

Blogging conference season is upon us and it’s important to bring business cards to conferences and events you attend. Having attended a handful of conferences and a lot of blogging events I can tell you one thing that I’ve learned:

Do something with your cards to organize them when you get them or you will probably NEVER do anything with them.

I have close to 200 business cards from various bloggers and businesses and they all sit in a large ziploc bag on my desk. Looking through the cards I can remember great conversations with some of the pr companies and fun nights out with some of the bloggers but with other business cards I look at, I can’t even remember meeting the people.

Here are a few things I wish I had done when I first got the business cards:

1) Connected with people on Twitter so we could keep in contact

2) Separated cards by conference or event

3) Put a star on the cards of people I wanted to follow up with or continue a conversation with

4) On PR cards, wrote down the brands they were there representing

  1. I do not have any business cards and I don’t know how many times I have wished I had one to give. It is rather time consuming to write down my info on scraps of paper for people..So to answer your question, they would be for me!

  2. I’d like to make a card for my photography that is specific for high school seniors to refer their friends

  3. I would love to win for a new etsy store I am launching next month. I would use the cards to double as a business card and a tag!

  4. I would love to make some card to hand out to teachers when I am substitute teaching in a new building.
