Business Cards Play a Phenomenal Role in Marketing
BUSINESS CARDS ARE MINI EXTENSIONS OF YOUR COMPANY ON PAPER
So you are thinking about how to grow your business. You brain storm ideas, spend countless hours browsing the internet, scrolling through various pages and end up with myriad of ideas in your brain. At this point you have bits and pieces of information from various sources and are half heartedly thinking about investing in one idea or the other.
If you are a small business you think to yourself, should I put a bigger sign outside my business, start a membership at local business community networking place or... heck get one of those guys spinning a sign an intersection close to your business. Personally I think the guy spinning a sign is pretty cool. Though, the effectiveness of this marketing technique is directly proportional to the skill set of the "guy". It could back fire if the "guy" in question is not interested or is pre-occupied with what he is going to eat for lunch and I have seen some pretty drab attempts.
That completely destroys the image of business, the "guy" is trying to spin. You also give some thought to investing in an online seo company to help with gaining more foot/online traffic, but with gazillion of choices and suggestions available online, it becomes almost impossible to even narrow down the choices. To me it almost seems like a room full of puppy dogs, all saying "PICK ME", PICK ME", "PICK ME". Kind of gets pathetic after a while.
If you are a small to medium sized business you are also entertaining the idea of the getting that big plastic guy with arms flailing outside your business (mostly found outside dealerships). It sure as heck looks great but does not come cheap. Also, the flailing arms guy needs quite a bit of space to show his flair which most business might not have.
Lastly, if you are a large business, you probably have already made it and do not need much help getting your business off the ground and definitely don't need any spinning or flailing guy for that matter. Nevertheless you might always need help in maintaining your popularity among your market and keep yourself relevant.
