What Is a Business Card?
Before we delve into why you need a business card, let’s look at exactly what a business card is and what its purpose is. The typical business card is a 2x3in card—though this may vary ever so slightly depending on the country you’re from—that displays contact information for someone employed by a company or working for themselves.
Now let’s take a closer at business cards. The contact information for a business card usually consists of:
1. Your Name
It almost goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway. All business cards should contain your name clearly and legibly.
2. Your Title or Area of Expertise
Whether you’re a contractor, a tutor, a personal development coach, or an accountant, your card should make clear what your specialty is.
3. Contact Details
You need to provide contact details so prospective clients can reach you quickly and easily. Your contact details can be a business address, email address, and/or a phone number.
