Business cards are an important part of a business. Some people put great thought into their cards and others have just thrown the information on a card. This is many times the first impression that someone has of your business and you.  What does you business cards say? Here are some tips I have to help give a professional impression.
  • Don’t fill up your card on both sides.  When you fill up the card on both sides it does not leave a space  for people to take notes on. Send to your website, put a QR code on it or just set up a time to share what you do.
  • Don’t have glossy on both sides. The glossy does not allow people to write on your card. When I am networking events, I often make notes about our conversation, locations, etc.
  • Make it readable. This may seem like a simple idea, but not everyone can read the small print. Stagger the sizes and make sure it is readable, especially your contact information. Try to stay away from fonts that make it hard to read.
  • Vistaprint cards- They do a great job of giving out free cards, but you want to show people you are serious and in business.  The first impression it gives me is that is a “part time” business and may not be a serious business. I realize that this impression can be wrong, however that has been my experience. There are many other options that are available for a comparable cost. You can usually get 500 cards for 20-30 dollars. You can also print them at home from your computer. One of the issues I often have is I recognize cards by design and Vistaprint often have similar designs that are used often so you are not unique. As a business, no matter what you do, you are unique. That is why you are in business.
  • QR codes– I suggest you put a QR code on your business card. Many more people are using smartphones and starting to utilize this function of their phones. If you are unsure what a QR code is, please visit my blog post on QR codes.
  • Please make sure all of your contact information is up to date. When you are going to a networking event, please have your new cards. Many times I am not able to read the writing or the updates. My suggestion is if you have to make a change, please use a label. This will allow everyone to be able to read what you wrote.
These are just a few of the suggestions for a professional card. Please share your suggestions below. I look forward to comments.

Founding “mompreneurs” motivated by desire to improve mom

well being and economics.

Just like a baby needs 9 months to grow in vitro, there is a new online community that will help make life a little easier that also took 9 months to develop. Pretty fitting since the founders are both moms. Announcing the birth of GetOutMoms.com, a site that allows you to hire a quality local mom for a wide range of short-term tasks or projects. Driven by zip code, women post the skills they are offering and also identify their desired schedules, rates, and how far they are willing to travel. Other moms (and busy people in general) post tasks they’d like to hire out or get help with, and the site allows the tow to connect.

“We have made it extremely easy and we also thought about the importance of security, so we have features, in place that are associated with each user’s profile.” “Knowing the importance of mom networking and word of mouth advertising, members provided testimonials and earn ratings once a particular task or job is complete,” said Stacie Copsill, Co –Founder.

Moms simply need to go to www.GetOutMom.com and they can browse postings of both skills offered and help needed. GetOutMom.com offers a free month trial period and is currently running early bird membership specials that will only set you back about $2-$3 a month, a small price to pay compared to the money you’ll save by hiring reasonably priced moms, or earn if you ‘re working.

To find out more or browse the wide of current postings, please go to www.GetOutMoms.com , or contact Dana Mullin, Marketing and Communications Manager, at dana@getoutmom.com

Business Women Connect began with one woman, Linda Rendleman, making a commitment to her passion for bringing women together to share their passions and dreams, their resources and educations, and their wish for collaboration. She started with a simple website in 2001, but at that point the concept of being online was not well understood. Linda pushed on; even a bout with cancer didn’t deter her from her purpose.  Using traditional means such as creating her own radio, television shows, dynamic face to face meetings, and online learning, she pointed the way for women in her community to “connect” with each other. Linda has received recognition and numerous awards for her extraordinary speaking and writing abilities. Linda was honored by the Indiana Commission for Women in 2008 as a Torchbearer Recipient for leading and inspiring women to create a greater balance, fulfillment, and quality of their lives.
