Would you pass out home-made business cards?

Take a look at my business card…

BAD bus Card

I made it myself, on my computer. I used off-white, perforated paper. The logo is blurry and cut off on the edge. The font is boring. The phone number is incorrect, so I crossed it out and wrote the correct number.

Sometimes, when I meet a new person networking, I’ll give that person this card. Then I’ll ask, “How do you feel about me as a business professional, based on that card?” He or she is usually too polite to say anything negative, so there might be an awkward pause. I quickly take the card back and say, “This is my real business card.”

Then I explain, “This is what I do with video.” You’d never give out a home-made business card. Consider what you’re saying about your business if you use home-made video.

Marketing your business with quality, professional video may be more affordable than you think. Give us a call.

  1. Thank you, Dave, for such a grrreat visual of what you do!

    From your local commercial/personal printer, I want to thank you, too, for reminding people that business cards are a direct reflection of the name on the card. Let the professionals make “you” look good whether in video or in print!
