I started exchanging the card during business interactions or networking events and also started collecting business cards from the people I meet. My personal experience is that when someone hands over the card to me, while I am looking at the card, I am also listening to that person as to what exactly the business is. Many a times, it gets difficult to remember the exact context of conversation and follow up plan after a few days.
Then starts the Internet search based on the name of the person. Slowly the context starts building up as information unfolds on the internet, you start knowing the person more through social media channels and if you find a photo of that person on the internet, it becomes easy to connect a face with the business.
Taking this thread in mind, Vishal came up with this new design for the card.
I simply love this ‘personal business card’ because:
- I think this is an ideal card of a social media enthusiast – with information about all social media channels where I can be connected
- It has all the details (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, My Blog Address, Website URL, Phone number, email address and also my company name) without too much clutter and too little text
- Photo on the card helps in remembering
- Notes section at the back of the card helps in taking points about conversation and note down the follow up plan
Now what’s the reason for me personally boasting about this card on my blog? Simply because I thought this example will help my blog readers in getting some pointers on their business card designs :- )
Thanks once again Vishal for this amazing, innovative and out-of-the box design!
