When most people think of promoting their blog or website, they instantly think of the online methods of advertising. Rarely do people think about utilizing the powers of offline marketing in order to promote your online business or blog, but, it can produce some outstanding results if done correctly.
You can have business cards printed for around 10c a card, which makes them highly cost effective, and they work extremely well. Thousands of business cards are exchanged on a daily basis, so it’s important that your card stands out from the crowd. If your card stands out, then the recipient is far more likely to visit the webpage on the card and find out more about what it is that your website or blog is offering. In order to stand out, your card needs to have an effective design; something that’s eye-catching, grabs the attention, and obviously, is visually appealing. It can be hard to think of fresh ideas – with so many already out there – so I’ve rounded up a selection of some of the most impressive custom business card designs I’ve seen around the web and listed them below to give you some inspiration while designing your own blog business card!
I prefer the idea of business cards for advertising a blog, rather than things like flyers, because you can pick and choose who you are going to give them to. You can make sure that you only give them to people who you think have a real interest in what it is that you offer, that way you have more chance of seeing conversions from each business card. With flyers, you might have them distributed amongst local newspapers, so you have no way to specify your target audience – with business cards you get to pick exactly you to give your materials to. Places like Next Day Flyers allow you to print your custom business cards at a very low cost, and at the highest quality. You can have 100 cards printed for as little as $12.95 (including delivery), that works out at just 12c per card, which makes them a very economical way of getting your blog out there and into the public eye. So, when it comes around to promotion and marketing time for your blog, website or online business, don’t jump straight to the (often very expensive) online methods of marketing. Print marketing has been working for thousands of companies for many years, and it can do the same for online business too.
