3 reason why Name Cards beat smartphone

Why Name Cards Beat Smartphone ?


Malaysian Popular Blogger
 
When I received my first event invitation to attend as blogger, I learn how important for bloggers to carry own name card. I remember my first event , one PR hand me her name card and I was so embarrassed for not being able to hand out mine in return. She did asked for it and I was shyly replied I don't have one. Lesson learn! 

I carried my business card for second event. I then asked one bloggers who was sitting beside me for her blog url while handing out my new name card. She then shyly replied she need a pen and paper for her to write her url. Hope she learn her own lesson like me too. Then I realize this is how I look like during my first event. I look so sloppy and not ready to represent my blog. 

Some people may commented , we are just bunch of bloggers and most of us just start a blog for fun during pass times as hobbies. To be honest, I did started out for rant space and over the years its shows some small coffee money out of it. Not bad! Some people commented why need name cards when smartphone is enough when you attend event. Well....whether you are at networking event or product launching event, if you meet your fellow blogger or PR, nothing beats the power of name card.

Here are 3 reasons why business cards beat smartphone :


1.  People still ask for name card

Do you ever encounter the same experience like mine? People always asked for it when you don't carry one? 
Have you ever see their face expression when you replied , you don't carry any and ask for theirs instead? You will end up spoil your chances to connect with other parties.

2. Branding

With name card , you can show you are professional and means business. You even have your own logo, contact details, blog url, sns name which make it easier for potential advertiser to contact your for future collaboration.

3. Convenient for Potential readers

Too many blogs out there. Let say you meet someone and they have interest on your blog. Example your blog call 'superbrokelady'. It sounds awkward to say it in event, though! Well your blog name may sounds stands out but let say people need to google out that phrase and there are too many results from google and they may end up refer to the wrong site. They may probably give up and move on with other!
Further more, I don't think most of the people you met will find you are important enough and remember all your details. You don't expect people to memorise your blog name, instagram and fb name , right? I bet that potential readers or people you met, may forgot all about it within few minutes.

  6. The moment I got my first event invite, that's also the time I prepared for my own name card. It is a simple card yes, but this is your weapon, and makes you more credible, and respect as a blogger.

    And all my bags have my name cards so I won't feel.worry not having one :)

  7. I've printed cards as soon as O began circulating, so to speak. I find that not everyone wants to swap cards, particularly those who are not in the PR line.
