How To Make a Business Card
January 23, 2018
I finally finished making my business card. I started making my business cards yesterday and it looked somewhat like this..
The first thing I did was that I showed my coworkers my business card. They congratulated me on my tenacity to succeed. Then I reached out to one of the investors I met at the meetup events to ask her for any suggestions of any meetup groups where I can meet real estate investors and for her thoughts on my business card.
She first suggested for me to make my business card a more simple (phone number, email, name, and title).
I reached out to my coworkers to ask for critique and he told me
- A business card should never have a dark background. If you were to give them your business card, you would want to make sure they are able to see what notes they put on your business card.
- There is not enough space on your business cards to make mental notes because there are too many words.
- You are giving out too much information about yourself. A business card is like the first date- you want to keep the mystery alive.
I completely agree all of my coworkers suggestions suggestions and I talked to Nemo about it a little more. She told me that the suggestions he made were valid, but typical. She told me that if you want to attract a typical crowd, create a typical business card.
I thought about what she said and I agree with her.
What I liked about my business card is that it lists my objective and accomplishments; however, my coworker is right- it doesn’t have any mystery and is not enough blank spaces in the card for people to write notes on them.
I revised it and it looks like this..
I am going to ask my coworkers what they think about these revisions. I like this one better because it is simple, unique and it keeps the mystery alive.
Moral of the story:
- Always ask for critiques from multiple people to get different opinions
- If you want attract unique people, create unique products. If you want to attract typical people, create typical products.
- Creating something new isn’t hard. Make a product (independent variable) and compare it to a typical product (Control variable). Analyze all the pros and con of each product. Research. Lastly, create a product that meshes both concepts together
I analyze every problem I have using the scientific method. I have a problem, hypothesis, variables, experiment, result, and conclusion. This keeps my thoughts organized and efficient.
