Marketing myself or How to avoid common mistakes at the start of your web presence - Part 4 / Business Card
The next step after having a beautiful logo ready, was getting my business cards.I was very specific about what I wanted:- Thickness. A thick card is easy to spot, difficult to tear, and stands out from the rest.- No photographs on it. I think this is a mistake for a photographer. A single picture cannot be indicative of the entirety of your work, and if someone happens not to like it, he will very likely not bother looking at the rest of it.- Print on both sides.- Quality at a reasonable price.As I looked around Athens, I could either find some, but not all of the features that I wanted, or, when I found them all, it was at price beyond my reach. And so, I dived in the internet, one more time, and behold:moo.com
We love moo
The people behind moo really know what they're doing. With a little research and Adam's great work, I found what I was looking for in Luxe Business Cards.
My card and the thin red line
I ordered my first pack of 100 to check the quality, and they arrived sooner than I expected. My first business cards were sleeping, wrapped perfectly in their beautiful packaging. When you get them in your hands for the first time they feel so solid, that half the people I gave them to thought it was two cards stuck together and tried to take them apart (the truth is they are indeed made from two separate cards compressed together and "bound" with one more colored layer - red in my case).
If what the say about first impressions is true, then my card is a win win deal.THE BEST MARKETING DOESN'T FEEL LIKE MARKETING - TOM FISHBURNE
