In this video, Sandra Hart, one of Ireland’s top networkers (who also happens to be a good friend of mine), talks to me about her view on why business cards are of the utmost importance as a networking tool and how to use them for maximum impact.
The fact is, passing out your business card does absolutely no good if you haven’t made an impact on the person you’re passing it to–it’s just going to end up in the recycle bin. So, how do you increase your odds of making an impression and having others hold on to your card? Well, you can start by watching this video. Sandra offers some really great tactics for making an impact when handing your card to someone so they will remember you and look forward to your follow up.
After watching the video, I’d love to hear what you think of Sandra’s tips on what to do and what not to do when passing your business card out at networking events or exchanging cards with new contacts you meet in day-to-day situations. Do you have any additional dos and dont’s to share that you have learned in your networking experience? Please let us know your thoughts. Thanks!
