“I’m thinking of adding my blog address to my business cards. Do I delete other info or move onto the back of the card? I’d be interested in hearing what others are doing.”
I’ve been thinking about doing this as well. Here are some great tips offered by group members:
- Matthew DeVries, a member of Stites & Harbison PLLC, authors a blog and has the web address printed on the back of his card. That way, when he hands his business card over to new people, he hands it blog address side up. I think this is a great conversation starter.
- Peter Olson is an owner at The Olson Law Firm, LLC. He also has a “side job” doing various types of law coaching and conference speaking and his blog mostly relates to these activities. He prints his blog address on the back of his card but would display it on the front if it was directly related to his main job.
- Kimberly Kralowec, owner of The Kralowec Law Group, puts her blog address and a short description on the back of her card. She initially printed labels and put the info on the back of her cards. She later ordered cards with pre-printed information.
- Nancy Myrland offered some great advice: “Depending on how you design it, you can fit all the information on the front. Make sure you share all of your URLs whenever possible. If you are going to spend your valuable time and other resources developing this Social “real estate,” then make sure people know about it. All of mine fit on the front of my business card, then my positioning statement is at the top of the back of my card, allowing room for the recipient to write below if needed.”

Do you currently have all of your social media activities prominently displayed on your business card? I think it’s absolutely necessary to do so.
