When we think business cards, we usually think of people in suits on Wall Street, people working as executives, or are just generally part of the higher-ups and big wigs in the world of business, commerce, and finance. This is not the case though. Business cards are something every working adult should own because they are not just a national practice, rather they are a global practice. In some countries like Japan, exchanging business cards at the first meeting is seen as customary and necessary for formal introductions. So, if you do not have a business card yet, we strongly suggest looking through some of the designs offered by Metal Business Kards and see what might work for you.
Business cards are your way of introducing yourself to other working adults. It allows them to remember your name, what you do, and how you can be contacted. These are essential aspects of creating a professional network. It does not matter if you are working an entry position in a company or have been stuck in the same position for the last 3 years because your job is just to ensure you keep building contacts. People will remember you this way, and the likelihood of someone or the other reaching out to you because of your business card is significantly high. Yes, LinkedIn is also a great way to expand your network and to build contacts, but that does not mean you have to quit exchanging business cards as well. Both things can be done and neither of the two requires too much effort. At the end of the day, your job is to put yourself and your services out there so that people will reach out to you more and potentially present you with more work or other job opportunities.
