So you have your business cards designed, printed and delivered to you. But it doesn’t just end there. In fact, some may say that only the easy part has been completed. After all, you still have to hand out your cards to potential clients and ensure that you’ve provided enough of an incentive for them to even contact you. Yikes!
How do you do all this? Where do you go to find potential clients, and how do you approach them? Since networking and handing out your cards may all seem daunting (especially for those just starting out a new business or job search), we again turned to our seasoned and professional networkers—our fans and followers on our social media sites—and asked them to offer a word about their own business card hand-out strategies.
