As you probably know, I returned from the SHRM Annual Conference in New Orleans not too long ago and I’m getting ready for the HR Florida Conference next week. Prior to leaving for SHRM, I had new business cards made incorporating both my company logo and HR Bartender logo. Here’s a photo:
Pretty nice, huh? After making the announcement about my shiny new business cards on Facebook, someone asked me if I had a digital card. Well, I had never really thought about it so I went on iTunes, found a nifty little digital business card program called SnapDat and created a digital card.
Well, I’ve given away lots of the paper cards…but none of the digital cards.
On one hand, I think there’s something to be said about having a paper card. Something you can touch/feel. But on the flip side, I must admit I never keep paper cards…I always come back to the office and put the information in Outlook and toss the card. That way, I have the contact info with me all the time. I would have thought digital cards would be much more useful.
So, I’m curious…what’s your take on business cards? Paper or digital? A marketing device or just info? Leave me your thoughts below.
P.S. As an added incentive, everyone who leaves a comment by August 15 will be entered into a drawing for a copy of the book “I Hate People!” by Jonathan Littman & Marc Hershon. I’ll even toss in a matching t-shirt.0
