3. Business cards show your PREPAREDNESS.
Have you ever had someone write his or her contact information on a napkin and give it to you? How about someone that had a mobile phone with a dead battery? That’s really unprofessional, and who wants to do business with unprofessional people like that?
If you had a meeting with 2 prospect business clients and one was scrambling to find a pen and paper to write on and the other person simply pulled out a business card, who would you want to do business with? Showing that you are prepared at all times is a great indicator and reflection of your professionalism.
Fear not. Conversations will still end with, “Let me give you my business card,” at least for a little longer.
