Worker Daily asks,
on your business cards?
Well, what should go on your business card? The way I see it, there are only two must-haves:
- Contact information
It happens that my domain is both my name and my contact info,
so I decided to go out on a limb and put just
edward.oconnor.cx on my card. I think I
hit about half of Scoble’s business
card best practices:
These cards have helped to start many conversations. People
are always surprised by the utter minimalism of them.
Actually, the most common question is,
what’s the cx stand for?
- They’re the standard size.
- They break the rules.
- They’re different.
if you don’t put anything on your card other than your name, at least make sure you show up in Google/MSN and Yahoo.I think I can count this one, as people will know to type the domain in the location box, and if not, domains generally show up as their own first Google result.
But hey, I shouldn’t talk about business cards without
praising where I buy them: a true gem of
Web 1.0, designyourowncard.com. In general, I
don’t subscribe to the notion that Web
1.0 sites were better than Web 2.0 sites, but
designyourowncard.com completely rocks. It’s
simplest thing that could possibly work. An incredibly
straightforward, if un-ajaxy interface, backed by a system
that still remembers every card I’ve ordered over
years and years with no fuss at all.
Definitely worth a look next time you need to order cards.
