What are Amway business cards? And should you have your own Amway Business Cards? During my time in Amway, I was told to create my own Amway business card that didn’t mention the word Amway on it. Instead, we used the buzzword ‘Private Franchising’ and the name of our business. In my case, I used C&K Enterprises, which were the initials of my first name and my former wife’s first name.
During my first few months in the Amway business, I bought lots of business cards from Vista Print® online. They were inexpensive and easy to hand out. Unfortunately, I never sponsored a single person from handing out business cards. I’m not saying that it’s not a good marketing strategy. However, it didn’t work for me.
Personally, I don’t think it’s all that important to have your own Amway Business Card. Instead, I think it’s a much better idea to collect business cards from your prospect, rather than trying to give them your card. After all, how many people actually call you, after you exchange business cards with them? Not many!
In my experience, very few people will follow up with you; probably no one. But if you make a good first impression with your prospect, and collect their business card, you can follow up with your prospect any time you want. I hope that makes sense.
And if you are just starting out in your own Amway business, it’s best to keep your expenses as low as you can. That way, you can make an immediate profit and keep your overhead to a minimum.
If getting your own Amway business card is really important to you, I think it’s a good idea to get a professional looking card, rather than getting the cheapest. If you decide to get your own Amway business cards, you should have them professionally done at a local printer or online. That way, you come across as a professional, not as an amateur. In most cases, you can get 500 to 1000 business cards printed for somewhere between $40 and $75, including tax and shipping.
In summary, most Amway distributors have their own business card that doesn’t mention the name Amway on it. Personally, I don’t think that’s a wise business decision. After all, if you are ashamed to name the company you are partnered with on your business card, you might be working with the wrong company!
In addition, I think it’s much smarter to collect other people’s business cards and follow up with them, rather than just give your business card to a bunch of random people. Finally, if you do decide to get your own business cards, don’t be cheap. Hire a professional printer to create some nice business cards for you. It will be money well spent.

21 thoughts on “Amway Business Card Information: Things You Should Know”
I do believe that business card in and of itself will probably not lead to very many calls. I am more prone to give out small packets that contain information about my products/business and my business card. This way people have the chance to go over the information on their own time and then contact me if they are interested. But I do think it is also very valuable, and perhaps more so, to get the contact information of others so that you can regularly reach out to them. It gives you the control rather than having you waiting by the phone for calls that may never come.
That’s great that you give out small sample packets instead of a business card. I am not against having business cards. I just think that the entire purpose of a business card is to get someone else’ business card, so you can follow up with them.
I think that you should have your business cards always on the ready, but I agree: collecting business cards from others should be even more important than passing out your own. It’s an instant contact. You have all of your potential client or recruit’s information right there.
One thought on not putting your business name on your business card: bad advice. I would be very suspicious of a person who did not put their business name on their card. Sooner or later it is going to come out, and then your contact is going to want to know why that information was hidden. Are you ashamed of your own business? Not providing the information is going to send up red flags for me.
I agree. Having your business name on your business card is definitely a wise move.
VistaPrint is a pretty great business materials source. My husband uses OvernightPrints.com for business cards, however, and loves them–price, service, and turn-around time. One thousand premium cards are a little under $30. My husband’s latest business card design is actually a vertical folded card, and gets a lot of attention. You don’t have to be spendy to get great business cards!
I’ve never heard of OvernightPrints.com. I will have to check that website out. I like the idea of having a vertical folded business card. Thanks for sharing this great information.
I bought my business card on Vistaprint for my business. I have to say that they provide very inexpensive and much better cards. If anyone wants to purchase new business cards for their new business, then you can go with it.
VistaPrint is a great resource. Believe it or not, I’ve found the best deals for business cards on eBay. That’s where I get mine now.
I order my Amway business cards directly from Amway and am really happy with the price and quality.
Good, Deb. The company does offer some nice business cards.
I hand out my Amway business cards to everyone I meet and I’ve gotten lots of customers that way. Best of all, it’s a pretty cheap lead generation method.
Handing out business cards is a very inexpensive way to get leads for your Amway business.
I’ve had my Amway business cards as generic and as Amway. I’ve found that more people are interested when I don’t mention the word Amway right away. I’ve done better just providing the name of my business, along with something such as Independent Business Owner.
While I was in Amway, I had a generic card and it worked pretty well.
I had some Amway business cards made up on Vista Print and they came out very nice. They were priced right too.
Good for you, Larry. I’m glad you like your business cards.
I have found over the years that purchasing business cards from the company you are working with is more expensive. I, too, am a fan of VistaPrint. They are inexpensive, have a wide range of marketing products, great customer service, and they now offer a competitive email marketing campaign. VistaPrint has a huge selection of templates, or you can design your own. Price and the flexibility to do my own designing has kept me going back to VistaPrint.com.
Great points, Amy.
I had my Amway business cards done right on VistaPrint.com. I think I paid about $60 for 1,000 business cards. I put the company’s name, logo, my distributor number, phone number, website, name and email on the card. The cards look great. I’ve already handed out more than 20 different business cards to prospects that I meet, and I got a very positive response for my business cards. I would definitely recommend VistaPrint.com.
Good for you Manny!
I too use VistaPrint for my business cards. I started there because I got a really great introductory promo deal of 200 for $10 if I recall correctly. I was so impressed with the ease of creating the cards and the quality of the cards I received. People who I gave my cards to were also very impressed with the quality; I got lots of compliments. I haven’t used another site since to create my cards.
