Should you order Herbalife business cards? If so, what should they look like, what should you put on them, how much do they cost, and where do you order them? That’s what we will discuss in today’s article. I’ll also share a few basic success tips when using business cards.
If you are serious about your Herbalife business, I think it is important to have your own business cards. I’ve never met a successful entrepreneur who didn’t have their own business card. Have you? Having your own business card helps establish instant credibility with your prospects. And it’s a great way to share what you do with other people.
What is a Business Card?
Let’s begin by defining what a business card is, in case you aren’t familiar with one:
Business cards are cards bearing business information about a company or individual. They are shared during formal introductions as a convenience and a memory aid. A business card typically includes the giver’s name, company or business affiliation (usually with a logo) and contact information such as street addresses, telephone number(s), fax number, e-mail addresses and website. ~ Wikipedia
In my own words, a business card is nothing more than a simple way to share your business information with others. It’s a small piece of paper with your important business information and contact information.
Reasons to Have a Business Card
There are many reasons to have a business card. Here are a few I can think of.
# 1: Low Cost Way to Share Your Business
Business cards are inexpensive, especially if you buy them in bulk. The cost of 1,000 business cards is normally just $50 to $100. That means that each one you hand out is less than ten cents.
# 2: Simple and Easy to Use
Business cards are simple and easy to use. You simply hand them to people or exchange business cards with other people. You don’t have to be a polished talker or smooth salesperson.
# 3: Gives You a Professional Look
Business cards give you and your business a professional look. It’s a simple way to make a great first impression with someone. Think about it for a moment. Do you know of ANY professional who does not have their own business card? Me neither.
# 4: Portable
Business cards are small and portable. You can store them in your wallet and purse and take them with you everywhere you go. That way you always have some type of marketing material with you.
What to Include On Your Herbalife Business Cards
What should you include on your Herbalife business card? At a minimum, I would include your:
- Phone Number
- The Company Logo
Optional things include:
- Your Photo
- A Tagline
- A Marketing Message
- Your Home Address
Many online print shops make it easy to design your business cards. You just type in your information on the website and it automatically uploads and formats it on your business card.
You can also hire someone online to format and layout your business cards for you. That’s what I normally do. I use websites such as Fiverr.com or Upwork.com to find a qualified freelancer to hire. The cost is normally just $10 to $20.
Ordering Your Herbalife Business Cards
If you need Herbalife business cards, you can order them directly from your Herbalife back office, or you can visit websites such as eBay or Vista Print to create your own business cards. You can also visit your local printer.
I recommend you “price shop” to find the best deal. I purchase my business cards on eBay. That’s where I have found the best deals. I normally pay about $65 for 5,000 business cards with free shipping.
Keep in mind, the more business cards you buy at one time, the bigger the price discount you typically get.
Tips for Success
Here are a few of my best success tips when it comes to business cards.
# 1: Don’t Be Cheap
First and foremost, don’t be cheap with your Herbalife business cards. It makes no sense to have a thin, crappy looking business card. Spend the extra money and buy the best quality ones you can. It’s money well spent. A low-quality business card gives you and your business a bad image.
# 2: Give Out Business Cards Daily
Develop the habit of handing out 5-10 business cards DAILY. The more business cards you have circulating for you, the better your odds of finding new customers. Pick a number between 1 and 20 and make it a goal to hand out that many business cards every day. You can include them in outgoing mail, leave them at restaurants, post them on bulletin boards at gas stations, leave them at the gas pump, etc.
# 3: Keep Them With You At All Times
Once you order your business cards, make sure you carry them with you at all times. Keep some in your purse, in your wallet, and in your vehicle. Whenever you meet someone, give them your business card.
# 4: Collect Other People’s Business Cards
I HIGHLY recommend you do yourself a favor and try to collect other people’s business cards. Personally, I’ve achieved better results meeting people by getting their business cards and following up with them at a future date, rather than just giving them my business card and hoping they will give me a call.
To me, the only purpose of a business card is to get your PROSPECT’s business card. If you just give out your business cards, not many people will call you. Instead, you must be proactive, get the other person’s contact information, and reach out to them.
A Better Alternative
Rather than just getting a traditional Herbalife business card, why not use a sizzle card or drop card instead? This is nothing more than a business card with a headline, a few bullet points, and a call to action. An example sizzle card might say something like this:
Want to Lose Weight?
- Great products, delivered to your door at a fair price
- All customers get a free health or weight loss coach
- Get paid to lose weight!
Call Jim at (XXX) XXX-XXXX to learn more!
I think this type of business card is much better than a standard business card, because it features the benefits and speaks to the other person’s curiosity. Some people will call you or visit your website just to learn more about what it is. And that is exactly what you want to happen.
Here is an example drop card, just to give you some ideas:
Keep in mind, if you use a drop card, you do not want to include the name of your MLM Company on it. Keep it generic. Why? Curiosity sells. If you want to learn more about drop cards, you can read this article on my website.
In conclusion, if you are serious about your Herbalife business, you need your own Herbalife business cards. After creating your Herbalife account and placing your first order, your next step should be to purchase your own business cards.
