Why Full Time Bloggers Need Professional Business Cards
If you type anything you can think of + “blog”, you’re bound to find something.
For instance, if you search fashion blog, thousands of search results appear with different fashion and lifestyle bloggers. Over the past few years we’ve seen blogging transition from a hobby to a full-time job for people. You can work from anywhere, specialize in the things you’re passionate about, and truly enjoy what you do, so why wouldn’t people capitalize on this opportunity?
It’s a new industry which has come with the technology age and bloggers are able to make it all their own and be their own boss.
And because it’s such a unique industry, many bloggers may not think they need to invest in traditional marketing materials. But if you’re going to treat your blog like a true business, you need to have those materials available to give out at conferences or when you’re out networking locally. People aren’t going to remember the URL to your blog, but when you give them a business card with all of your information and that link, then they are more likely to go check it out after they get home!
Having these professional marketing materials, like business cards and even business stationery, give your blog legitimacy and authority as a business.
When so much of your business is online, it’s refreshing to bring some of it to a new, more concrete level. And most of the time, people who find your blogs online are other bloggers. Typically your audience is geared toward everyday people who may not spend a lot of time browsing the web to find you.
Instead, you may meet potential readers at a conference in your niche or even at a coffee shop. If you find yourself making conversation and a connection with someone when you’re out and about, give them a business card! You want a way to attract those people to your blog. Even if they don’t have a Bloglovin’ account where they keep up with fifty other blogs daily! You don’t want to limit yourself to only attracting people who are online.
But, of course, there’s a catch to the success of your blog’s business cards…
THEY HAVE TO LOOK AMAZING!
If people receive a simple business card from you that doesn’t represent your blog or you as a person, they won’t be compelled to visit your blog. People buy with their eyes. You may have a beautiful website and blog, but if you drop the ball on the design of your business cards, they won’t reflect that.
