I was at an event a few weeks ago where I was asked if I had a Business Card.
To which I responded No.
I could get them printed up for a small cost but then I’d have to carry them around with me, have them on my desk, and when some minor detail changed, have them re-printed up again only to have a new box of firestarter sitting on my desk.
The problem with Business Cards is that they don’t tell the whole story of who you are as a person, what you offer and where you are going.
So I’m trying something new when I meet people, I’ve setup a generic email account that sends out auto-replies that introduce me, tell you a little about who I am and give you all my contact information.
From there the next step is yours to reach out.
It’s a little experiment I’m running, and one that I hope works out.
Here’s my card if you need to get in touch with me – firstname.lastname@example.org
