Social media tools are changing the way businesses and individuals are marketing themselves. That's no secret. But have you considered how social media has changed the business card?
Think back just a few years ago and, in some cases, a few months ago. You have pretty much always had the standard information:
- Company Name
- Your name
- Physical address and/or P.O. Box
- Office number / Fax number
Then we evolved into the internet age, we added:
- Website URL
- Email address
- Cell phone
And now new media has changed the face of the business card. Those proficient in social media want the world how to contact them via:
The standard business card has not gotten any bigger, just more crowded. Where do you stand in this progression? Have you begun to add social media information to your business card? Is it more prevalent in one industry over another? It is looked upon as being more professional or less?
Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
(Thanks to @MariSmith for allowing me to use her business card as an example. By the way, this "Relationship Marketing Specialist" has over 65,000 Twitter followers and responded to my request in less than one hour. Pretty impressive.)
