Three Ways to Turn Your Business Card into a Marketing Tool

Replica San Diego

Business cards are a professional staple. You need them when you attend networking events and conferences, and when you hold meetings. Exchanging business cards remains an effective way to meet potential new customers and business partners. But did you realize that your business card is more than just a necessity? It is actually a powerful marketing tool. Here are three simple ways to turn your business card into a marketing tool through creative design and printing.

Put an “Offer” on the Back
Giving your card out is only the start to a new customer or business relationship. Entice the recipient to actually call you by including an offer on the back of your card. For example, a business-to-business service provider could say “Receive a Free Software Consultation” on the back of their cards. A restaurant or retailer serving consumers could include a discount code for 20 percent off the next order. This is an excellent way to promote new business when you hand out your cards.

Include Social Media Links
It is crucial for businesses to be present on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Grow your presence on these sites and connect with new people by including links or usernames for your social media accounts on your business cards. You can include your personal accounts if you use them for professional networking, or you can print your organization’s social information on the cards. Including social links also lets recipients know your business is tech-savvy.

Make it Creative and Memorable
Stand out in a sea of sameness. Have fun with your business card design so that your cards will stand out and be memorable. This will increase the chances that a recipient remembers meeting with you and that he or she hangs on to your card. Try including a headshot on your card so people can associate a face with a name. Or you can make your entire business card into a sticker! Work with your commercial printer to come up with creative ways to print your cards.

How to Design Effective Promotional Flyers

Promotional flyers can help your business to reach new customers. Flyers are great for announcing events or sales and for publicizing job openings. But if you are not a graphic designer, how do you go about creating an effective flyer? Below are some key tips for professional flyer design:

Keep it Legible
If you try to squeeze a lot of tiny writing onto your flyer, you will not attract as many viewers. Choose a font and size that will eye-catching and easy for people to read as they walk by. Sans serif fonts, such as Helvetica, are typically easier to read than serif fonts like Times New Roman.

Use Color Strategically
Bold colors like red, blue, or green can highlight your business name, the date of an event, or your phone number. Color draws the eye, so use it strategically to show viewers the most important information. Don’t overdo the colors on your flyer as this will make it more difficult for viewers to interpret.

Embrace White Space
When a flyer is too busy it can just blend into the background noise of a crowded bulletin board. Limit the use of images and text on your flyer to only the most fundamental information. Include plenty of white space in your flyer design, so it is clear and intelligible.

Create a Call-to-Action
Tell people how to get in touch with your business. You can include a really large phone number or URL in the middle of the flyer. Many businesses are now using QR codes on flyers so that smartphone users can scan the code and jump right to a landing page online.  Simply create a QR code online, link it to the desired web address, and send the digital image file to your printer.

It is key to use a trusted commercial printer who will print your business flyers accurately and on time.

Tips to Impress Your Professor on Your Next School Project

High school - three students with mature professor

You may have been the best and brightest student in your high school class, but it can be much harder to stand out in college where you are surrounded by students who are just as gifted and motivated as you. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to go above and beyond the expectations that will help you project or presentation impress your professor. From engaging with your peers to binding your written work, these tips will help make a lasting impression on your professor.

Make Your Project Interactive
If your project requires you to present in front of your class, try to make your presentation interactive by engaging with your peers. Ask questions, conduct a survey, or call for volunteers; whatever you do, just make sure that your peers are actively engaged with your presentation. This will demonstrate to your professor that you are serious about helping your fellow students grasp the material you have presented, which can go a long way come grading time.

Pass Out Printed Materials
Another way to take your presentation to the next level is to distribute printed materials to the class. Professionally-printed flyers, booklets, or data sheets will make it clear that you spent serious time and energy getting ready for your presentation. Professors will often add a few extra points for effort, so going above and beyond can only help your final grade.

Put the Finishes Touches on Your Report
If your presentation or project includes a written report, go the extra step and bind your work. In addition to keeping your work together, binding will also give your report a clean and professional look. Coil/spiral binding is the most commonly used binding because it lays flat when opened and works with odd-sized reports.
