I haven’t made very many business cards since I started my freelance business over 4 years ago. As a makeup artist, when you meet someone new, you walk a fine line of coming across as judgemental if you immediately throw them a biz card. It could be interpreted as a negative that they need a makeup artist. Example – “Hey, I’m a makeup artist, reach out to me sometime.” Which translates into, “Hey, your makeup, (or lack thereof) looks horrible, I can help.”
These are “mini” cards because they are half the size of a regular business card. The paper is thick and sturdy and I think since the shape and size is so different and unexpected, it will be a card that people actually will not want to lose! This moo.com site was super easy to navigate and they offer all sorts of options and ways for you to create your perfect business card that echos your small business. Obviously I’m very happy with the way these turned out and can’t wait to start flinging these babies out to prospective clients and advertisers:)
On a side note. Have you heard about the almost mom of two (she’s prego with her 2nd child) Marissa Mayer who just got named CEO of Yahoo?? Click HERE to read what Glamour magazine has to say about her. It goes without saying, that that is a very important position for a young (37) female MOM to hold. I emphasize “mom” because hearing success stories like this gives me confidence that I can continue to grow my own business into bigger and better things even while my first priority is to my three children. Everything I’ve read about her says that she’s trying to show that a work-life balance is possible and that women can be successful in driving a business while also being moms. We all know what great multi-taskers moms have to be, so this is no surprise they would pick a female for this position! I wonder… what do her business cards look like?? Ha!!
Do you have business cards? What do you they look like?
