I remember it like it was yesterday: A small box arrived at my desk, and it was the sign I had truly arrived in the world of business. I had my own, personalized business card.
And back in the day, it really was the ultimate inexpensive marketing tool. Go to networking events, share your business card and get other people’s business cards in return. With the advent of ubiquitous internet access, social media and the like, many feel that the business card as a marketing tool is outdated – but I would have to disagree.
