3 Reasons For Photography Business Cards
Bring A Sense Of Legitimacy
I know I know anyone can get some business cards printed up with their name on them; however, not everyone takes the time or effort. When you meet someone being able to hand them something physical with your name and website on it goes a long way. It also makes it much more challenging to forget who you are. Once the individual returns home, they can use that card to save your information on their phone, where they most likely would not have time when you first met. From there, they can take their time to find your website URL from the card and see your fantastic work. Once they are ready, they now have your information handy, so they can reach out. Relying on someone’s memory to remember you and your contact information is not a great way to do business.
Your Details Get Shared With Other People
A business card does not have to be used and an introduction. It can be something that you hand a current client after the work is done. You may hand your client a jump drive with their photos or a little thank you bag. When you do this, be sure to include your business card. If the client had a great experience with you, they are likely to refer you to their friends, and being able to simply hand their friends your business card with your information on it makes it easy for them to refer your business with little to no effort.
Showcase Your Work
Yes, a business card is small, but as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. So take advantage of every bit of real-estate.

This way, a potential client gets a taste for your style and also what you can do.
