Do you have business cards?

Do you have a business card? If not, why? After all if you are a writer that is a business When you start making connections and going to conferences it is a heck of a lot easier to whip out a card then to place your contact information on a scrap of paper to give to someone. Not to mention it is more professional.

There are many places one can get a card whether that is locally or online. My place is Vistaprint since they are forever running sales on their products. When I received my fist box it felt like a confirmation in what I did. Over the years I have added additional designs to my business cards collection, each one changing as I have grown.

But that is all well and good but what do you place on a card? What do you have that others might want or need? I would start with what can you do, offer or basically what do you bring to the table? Even if you are still new you have a lot to offer. You are a writer and if you are part of a writer’s group you can be a critquer or do book reviews. Anything that can help you brand yourself is a good place to start.

The next time someone asks for you card you will be ready instead of searching for a scrap of paper or pen to write your contact information down which has a good chance of being tossed out by accident.
