Think for a second about how conversations often end at social events, trade shows or airport lounges. Isn’t it with this phrase, “Here’s my business card in case you need to contact me”. Any time can be the right time for networking. These marketing tools are must-haves. Avoid the recycling bin by designing your business cards to pack a dynamic first impression. So, at all costs, avoid marketing yourself with poorly designed business cards that do more harm than good.
