Get set, debate

Should you have your photo on your business card; Yes or No?

There are reasons for and against, but it’s not something that is seen very often; but why? One local firm of solicitors do take the image approach, as do a firm of financial advisors, but why is it still not used by many

Think about all the business cards you collect when attending networking events. You get back the office and sort through the stack. Can you remember the people who gave you their card?

Having a photo on your business card helps people remember you. People do business with those they know, like and trust. If they can remember you, that’s the first step.

When you have your headshot on your card, people get a second chance to meet you. You meet so many people at a networking event, how is someone that you spoke to for 30 seconds going to remember your face. Do you ever have that “What was the name of that guy?” moment after a networking meeting?

Like all images associated with you and your business, it must be the right image. By that I mean a professional looking image wearing clothing appropriate to your trade or profession.

So if it’s such a good idea, why don’t more people do it?

Do you have your photo on your business card? If not, why not?
