3 reasons to carry a business card

If you think you no longer need a business card in today’s high-tech, “there’s an app for that” world, think again. Here are three reasons you should always carry some:

People will remember you. Making direct eye contact, smiling and handing over your business card creates a connection people remember. Plus, a well-designed card allows you to show a bit of your personality and set yourself apart from other people.

People still expect them. If you don’t have one, you can look unprofessional, especially if someone hands you a card and you can’t reciprocate.

Business cards offer the quickest way to exchange information. You can’t guarantee everyone you meet will be on LinkedIn or willing to exchange information digitally, but you can hand everyone a business card.
