Porche had a commercial a few years ago promoting their new 911 Carrera S model. In the commercial a young boy dreams of one day owning a Porche, after visiting a local dealership he asks for a business card.
What you can takeaway from this commercial is that giving someone your business card is like planting a seed.
The boy promises to comeback in about 20 years, in a MLM business 20 years for a call back might not be what your wanting. But when you give someone a business card you give them a reminder. At the time, your business offer might not have been what they were looking for at that moment. You might get a call in a week, in a month, or even a year but you'll have a greater chance of a call back if you'd have given them a great business card...
Shona Creative wrote a great article about VistaPrint. Don't get suckered by their cheap prices, you get what you pay for, and in network marketing your card is a reflection of you and your business.
Why VistaPrint = bad for your business
You get what you pay for, and that's why it's all 'FREE'
Years ago, when I was an ity-bity baby entrepreneur I thought I'd give VistaPrint a try (before I found my own fantastic, professional printer Amber Media Solutions). And here's what happened. Design aside, the cards were:
- smaller than a regular business card
- very, very thin
- very little coating on them
- tattered at the edges and corners from lack of quality card and coating
- dull in colour, even the white was greyish
- the top edge was cut on an angle!I remember going back a couple of months later to give their flyers a try and the same result occurred, except instead of cutting the edge on an angle, they put the back upside down from the front so the flyer looked completely confusing and unprofessional!

Many people overlook the value of having a professional business card that accurately reflects your brand image, yet this small piece of paper can be an important part of your collateral package. It's often the first item prospects receive from you, so it's your first opportunity to make a strong, positive impression on them.
The preponderance of do-it-yourself online business-card printing companies is an interesting and somewhat troubling phenomenon. With limited exceptions, it's fairly easy to spot an inexpensively produced card. When you choose to "go cheap" on your business cards, what message does that send to those with whom you wish to do business? Are you really doing yourself any favors by missing out on the opportunity to start building a positive brand image right from the start?

Some might not realize that a business card is a reflection of you.
I recently came across this card, that we did not print, and wondered why this person couldn't create a free email account that didn't include Mary Kay.
Showing that you"re involved with multiple network marketing companies can give mixed signals while giving out a card for another MLM and telling people how they can "make money" with a franchise.
Sometimes people need to take a break from only thinking about a business card design and spend more time looking over it's content.
The Doctors Speak Out card has been updated.
This card will now default to Allan or Nicole Blain transformation stats.
