Grow your referral network by exchanging cards

June 26, 2012 by  

The Miramar Pembroke Pines Chamber of Commerce is hosting a business card exchange at Citibank Pines West on July 15 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Tickets are $5 for chamber members and $10 for non-members.

A business card is the most important tool that a business expert of today can have. It is how they introduce themselves to others and is often the first impression people get of their company. Miramar or Pembroke Pines business card printing companies can help to design the perfect card to match any type and size of business. It is always best to have a business card printed by professional companies, as a quality card helps people to believe that you can offer quality services.

There are several tips to remember when taking part in a business exchange. Business cards must be current because scratching out information and writing the new details in does not make a good first impression, so a new batch must be ordered in advance. Only exchange business cards with strangers, rather than gravitating towards friends. Set a target of how many cards to hand out at each event and avoid discussing specific business at the exchange, as this may not interest fellow businesspeople. Instead, deliver that 30-second pitch about the business which has been practiced to perfection. Several people from one company should ideally attend each business card exchange, allowing the entire room to be covered. Listen carefully to what the person handing out a card is saying and follow up with them as soon as possible.
