For anyone in the photography business, creating photography business cards is one of the best ways to communicate with both potential clients and your regular customers. There is nothing as frustrating as meeting with someone who is interested in finding out more about your studio and services and being forced to scribble your information down on a loose piece of paper that is likely to be thrown away or lost. And even if your potential client doesn’t lose the paper, there is a good chance that he or she won’t remember why they wanted the information to begin with or who you are. If you don’t have photography business cards already, here are three good business card ideas to order today:
1. A single business card is a way to share a bit of your work, your contact information, and your logo. Adding a favorite image- or a couple- to your photography business cards can instantly tell customers what they want to know about you. In fact, many photography business cards are created using a number of different images so that you can provide customers with a card that matches their interests such as doing some with a wedding photo, some with a family portrait, and some with a senior portrait to hand out to different customers. You may even consider using the back side of the card to add a special discount or coupon to encourage your current and future clients to save the card.
2. Photography business cards tie together your other advertising efforts. If you have a website or blog for your studio, you’ll want to include a link on your photography business cards so customers can easily find you online. Then, customers who visit your site can see your latest work and special offers so you don’t need to print out new business cards every time you change a piece of information. You can also include links to social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. Photography business cards give your customers an easy way to find and interact with you that can be kept handy in a wallet or purse.
3. Photographers know that word of mouth referrals are often their most important and valuable source of new customers. When your client is happy with the images you create, they will likely tell other people about you. And, if your customer has a few of your photography business cards, he or she can pass on your information to other potential customers. In fact, you may find that your business cards change hands several times, so be sure that they are high-quality and will withstand being handed around. Make sure you order at least enough photography business cards to last at least six months, and then get them into the hands of as many potential customers as you can. No matter how your photography business cards find their way to clients, you’ll be glad you have taken advantage of this simple advertising tool!
