Carolyn Betts, CEO of Betts Recruiting. If you’re in a professional business, having that tangible takeaway is still a best practice. So what makes a good business card? We ran that question by career coaches and branding specialists, and created a blueprint for the modern worker based on their advice. Below, you’ll find four expert-approved business cards, with downloadable templates, for four different types of professionals.
Whichever route you choose, consider spending a few extra bucks on a card case to help lug them around. A business card is your introduction to the professional world — a dirty, ripped, or otherwise damaged one doesn’t make for a good first impression. If you’re a business owner, or want to take advantage of your employer’s name recognition, that should be the focal point of your business card. Put the company name on the front of the card, along with a logo and tagline, if those are available to you. Use the back to list your name, title, address, phone number, and company website.
