Load up on business cards from Tiny Prints before your next media event

What is in your wallet? Along with money, credit/debit cards, insurance cards and more where do you store business cards?  In your wallet, in a separate wallet? Thrown in the bottom of your purse or bag?!

When you attend your first conference don't go there without business cards. You will make contacts at these conferences you will want to visit their site once your get home.  Perhaps you met someone you can write a review for, do a giveaway, work with or for, and someone to  meet up with at a later date.

I use a separate wallet type holder for my business cards. There is room to put mine in and a space for those cards I collect at a conference or workshop.   When someone hands you their business card I think it is good to look at their face and then the card so you have a better chance of putting a person to the card later.  Including a personal photo on the business card is helpful in remember the name to face.

When I am home from a conference or event I place all the business cards I received in a plastic sleeve that is made just for business cards and store it in a binder. It makes for easy reference and it's neat and tidy.

I also carry a handful of business cards in my purse.  You never know when that conversations strikes up with a friend or relative on what you do all day!  You can tell them  about your blog/business, your Facebook page or you Twitter Account. What's the name of your blog they will ask? Kitchen Table, OK I will look it up. This is the time to hand over a business card.
