I wanted to get back to some new techniques to sell your brand, i.e. YOU!
We know that business cards are key, especially for those of us interviewing. We are able to e-mail our interviewers and in some cases call them directly. However, we all know that when we do get business cards at work we rarely use them. Unless you are in PR or advertising you don’t really meet that many people that NEED your business card. So in essence, the 200+ cards just sit there and you are just wasting paper. This is the number one reason why I still haven’t ordered my business cards from Vista Print. What am I to do with 250 business cards?
What’s the next step? Get virtual business cards. We are all familiar with the digital signature and our contact info that we put at the bottom of an e-mail. Employees and business people are now taking that up a notch and using such applications as “Bump” on their iPhone’s or Android’s. The application is just what it sounds like, you bump your phones and your contact info gets shared virtually.
