Business Cards & Creating Relationships


May 2015

Ah, the business card—perhaps one of the oldest pieces of business communication. How else do you best introduce yourself to a new, professional contact without seeming pushy or otherwise inappropriate? This month’s InnerView column addresses whether or not to acquire business cards at all, in addition to having one that sparks a conversation.       

Q: Should I have business cards if I’m entry level and interested in more than one industry?” –Tara R., Chicago

A: It certainly doesn’t hurt to get business cards printed, regardless of whether or not you’re entry level or a seasoned veteran. Business cards are a great way to supplement a conversation with a new person and offers a convenient way of passing along your basic information.

Even in this digital age, I would argue that having physical business cards is still relevant and beneficial. They can act as a quick way to establish connections without the chatter of the internet (re: your flooded LinkedIn inbox).
