YES. No matter who you are, or what you do, you need a business card.
Traditionally, business cards are used by businesses. But that’s simply no longer the case. In today’s ultra-connected world, the business card serves as an important social networking tool for anyone.
With the popularity of websites such as YouTube, MySpace, LinkedIn, Ziki, Facebook and personal blogs, social networking has become a huge occupation. These sites can be used not only for keeping up with friends, but for making new connections, showing off resumes and portfolios, contacting employers, attracting clients, and reaching out to business partners. They are used by everyone from businessmen to stay-at-home moms to tech-savvy teenagers. People now need a way to strengthen these connections outside the virtual world; business cards are now becoming a leading advertising and social tool.
Staples’ President of Business Services, Rob Schlacter, confirmed this phenomenon in a recent press release, noting the popularity of “social cards.” This modern calling card is now a means of personal advertising and connecting with new contacts. People in the dating scene now give out their personal cards at night clubs and singles events. Young students can advertise their MySpace pages. Parents can pass around emergency contact information for their children. There really is a card for everyone!
