What do you need to know about Mary Kay business cards? Let me start by telling you that if you are serious about your Mary Kay business, you should have your own business cards. You can order your business cards from the company, online at eBay, or have them manufactured at your local office store.
Personally, I believe it’s important to have a professionally designed business card. You don’t want to look like an amateur. Even if a high quality business card costs 30-40% more than a cheap business card, it’s worth it. Typically, you can get 1,000 high quality business cards for around $50 to $100.
What should you do with your Mary Kay business cards? You can hand them out to your friends, customers and exchange them with other people at social networking events. YOu can also leave them in public places and at bulletin boards. That means you need to carry your business cards with you at all times.
You should keep some in your purse or wallet, in your vehicle, at home, at your job, in your jacket, in your spouse’s vehicle, and anywhere else you can possibly think of. You don’t want to meet a potential customer and not have your business cards with you.
Another good practice is to collect other people’s business cards. While it’s good to hand out your Mary Kay business cards, I think it’s a much better idea to get someone else’s business card instead. That way you have their phone number, email and contact information. And you can follow-up with them promptly, whenever it is convenient for you. If you give your business card to someone, but don’t get their contact information too, there’s a good chance the person won’t contact you. So always get the other person’s contact information.
What should you put on your Mary Kay business cards? At a minimum, you should have your name, email, cell phone, home phone, distributor number and distributor website. That gives your prospect the information they need to get in touch with you, or to place an order on your personal Mary Kay website.
If you don’t have enough money to go out and purchase your own Mary Kay business cards, there is a simple solution. You should sell some products to retail customers and reinvest your profits back into your business. That’s what I recommend to any new Mary Kay distributor. There’s no reason to go into debt to buy Mary Kay business cards.
In conclusion, serious Mary Kay distributors have their own Mary Kay business cards. When used properly, business cards are a good way to exchange contact information with potential distributors and customers. Don’t make the common mistake of getting cheap business cards. Spend the extra money to make sure your Mary Kay business card is professionally designed and printed on quality paper. That way you look like a professional!
