A business card is still a cost-effective way to advertise your online business. Make sure the card has a design that really gets attention, your shop url is large and clearly noticeable and it is obvious what you sell.
Here are three ideas to really circulate your card to your local market:
1. Business Cards in Packages of Complimentary Shops
Contact five online shops that are in the same city as you, but are complimentary vendors, not competitors. Agree to include their shop’s business card in the packages you send to your customers in exchange for them doing the same for you.
2. Business Cards Attached to Holiday Treats
Buy a few boxes of candy canes. Attach your business card and leave on the windshield of parked cars at the mall. Or, if your town is having a Christmas parade, hand out the candy canes to bystanders watching.
3. Post Your Cards at Friends & Family’s Workplace
Have a fridge magnet made up of your business card. Then ask friends and family to put it on the refrigerator in the lunch room of their work place. You could also stick the magnets on the back of washroom doors in office buildings. Most people will think you paid to put them there.
Which ones will you try? Let me know in comments below.
