We've all heard the saying that if you want to grow your blog and potentially start to earn a part-time or even full-time salary from your blog, then you must start to treat your blog as you would a business. One of the ways in which you can start treating your blog as a business and promote it offline is by creating some business cards for your blog. Today I'll be sharing 3 reasons why you need business cards as a blogger.
Aura Print recently got in touch and helped me design my very own blog business cards. The business cards were printed on thick 800gsm card with a pink edge which gives the cards a very luxurious feel and really helps them to stand out. You can choose to get the cards printed on either one or both sides, and if you choose to get a coloured edge, Aura Print offer this service in 15 different colours. I decided to go for pink, as you can see from the picture below. I found the team at Aura Print to be extremely helpful when it came to designing a set of business cards that I was 100% happy with and I would thoroughly recommend them if you're looking to have some business cards printed for yourself or your company.
1. Business Cards Help You Connect With Other Bloggers & Brands
One of the main reasons why every blogger should have their own business cards is that it can really help you build a connection with the people you meet, whether that is at blogger events, conferences, or any other event that involves some sort of human interaction! Exchanging your business card with other bloggers and brands at events can help you build a relationship with them in terms of gaining new readers as well as opening up new opportunities for collaborations.
2. Business Cards Look Professional
People won't see your blog as a professional business unless you treat it that way yourself. Of course, being professional as a blogger has a lot to do with the quality of the content that you create as well as how you approach and communicate with other brands, bloggers and readers. Having your own business cards for your blog is another way of treating your blog as more than just a side hobby and it's also a great continuation of your brand from the online to the offline world.
3. Business Cards Give People Something To Hold On To
In this day and age where everything is online and technology-based, having an business card to give to potential readers or brands is something that can really help you to stand out and be more memorable. Think of all the times you've spoken to someone about your blog - perhaps you'd mentioned the name or given them the URL. It's quite likely that the person either forgot or just didn't bother to click on to your blog. By giving people something to hold on to, it's more likely that they will translate into new readers, thereby helping to grow your blog.
