I have been at this blogging thing for a good little bit, but have never bought business cards until now! I have always thought I would feel really weird giving someone a card when they asked about my site and just felt like I wouldn’t really need them, but changed my mind recently! There have been many opportunities where it would have been perfectly normal to hand someone a business card and I missed out! I want to be prepared to give them to local businesses, friends, or whoever, PLUS, I will need them for the super awesome blogging conference I am attending in October with my friend Madison. Since I finally ordered some cards and they arrived the other day, I figured I would share a little bit about why you should get cards for your blog, how to get some that you love, and who you should give them to!
Why you need business cards for your blog
I don’t know about you guys, but when someone asks specifically about my blog, I clam up and I’m not really sure what to say. I mentioned how much I loved the reminder in Blog Inc. that we should always have a good description of our site that makes it sound awesome, and I have been bound and determined to not act like my blog is some weird thing whenever someone asks about it. For me, a step in that process is getting business cards. When I’m in a group of people that may not know what a lifestyle blog even is, a business card allows them to easily find my site and social media later on without having to search really hard for it. Plus, if they have a tangible reminder of my blog, they are much more likely to remember to check it out! This makes business cards a really helpful tool in connecting with potential readers, local businesses, and fellow bloggers! They are also really great for slipping into gifts that you are mailing, or into the packages sent to giveaway winners!
