There are many ways and places to store business cards. The back pockets of your pants, the credit card slots in your wallet, the inside pages of your business journal or in your bag. Although these places may have been a good alternative to store your business cards and business cards that you receive, it will not make a good impression on you. You need a good-looking business card case to boost up your elegant, confident and professional image.
Importance of Business Cards and Why You Need Them
Your own business card and card that you receive from clients and colleagues are important things that you should not just take for granted. Your business card is a way for people to know who you are, where your office are, the nature of your work and where to contact you in case they have a need for your service. Unless you do not want to be reached and does not want to make a sale, do not bother on creating your own business card.
As for the business cards of your clients, keeping them gives you an edge over other sales people and businessmen who have a habit of throwing away business cards that they receive during a meeting, a conference or simple gathering. This is most especially true if the business of that person is not related to yours, you did not make a sale from him, and he is very unlikely to become a client or a partner in the near future.
If you keep all the business cards that you receive and keep them safely in a business card case, you will be surprised at what these contacts can do for you and for your business even if they are the least likely to be a client of yours. These people have contacts of their own in and out of your field, which may become prospective clients if only they were introduced to you by someone they know.
Look Good with Business Card Case
Your best companion during giving out and receiving business cards is a business card case. Best material makes to choose from are stainless steel, silver, and gold. One of the most favorite material of modern men is stainless steel with frosted finish. It gives a modern, minimalistic look, complimenting your sleek laptop or thin attache case.
There are many ways you can use a good looking business card case to your advantage. Consider this:
When you are in a sales meeting, of course, it would be you who would make the initiative to offer your business ard to your client. When it is your client's turn to give out his, put out your business card case, open it up ever so slowly, and while you are still talking to him leave your business card case open and let him have a glimpse of the cards already in it. After which, promptly place his card atop all the other cards to make him feel important and snap it close to make him see that you are proud to have his business card.
This is just a simple gesture yet it will get you far from being just a regular salesman. After this brief stint, you are sure to be treated with more respect than during your initial meeting.
