Recipe For Business Card Success
Posted By: Matt Hamilton
How many times have you received a business card and tossed it in the trash? Most people act like they are going to keep them to be friendly and when you aren’t looking, in the dumpster it goes. Let’s face the facts; people don’t want lug around business cards unless they have some sort of value. I personally use them as a ninja throwing star or I clean my fingernails with them (is that weird?). The point I’m trying to make is business cards generally have very little to no value.
How can you make your business card have some sort of worth that will keep putting your name in front of the person you gave it to? Melissa Bahen also known as “LuLu” from LuLuTheBaker.com has the secret recipe that will keep your contacts coming back for more!
Lulu’s lineage is filled with fantastic cooks so she decided to make a blog where she could share and preserve her family recipes. Every year LuLu attends a convention for bloggers named Alt Summit in Salt Lake City. Each year she comes up with a new business card to wow potential partners and fellow bloggers. In years past LuLu used card stock sheets to print her information, then punched a hole in the card stock and tied it to a paint dipped spoon.
This past year she had another stroke of genius with Sea Salt Business Cards.
Lulu says “People loved them, which was fantastic, and I realized that I wanted this year’s cards to be equally creative and well-received. I originally had vague ideas of handing out spices in tiny packages, and after many, many, many revisions, endless materials research, and lots of back and forth, I ended up with these little cork-topped glass vials filled with sea salt, with my name and info on the self-printed label. I’m so pleased with how they turned out, and they were just as fun to hand out as I had hoped!”
