Branding & Blogging-Bigger Impact in Smaller Business Cards? 9


barbararozgonyi-moo-cards

Since they arrived from England last week, I’ve been passing them out almost everywhere – even in the streets.

I have to admit to feeling a bit sheepish and silly about giving them away at an outdoor festival, but people really liked them. In fact, whole groups of people wanted one – and I got a few inquiries about taking pictures, something I love to do, but don’t promote enough. All the images were captured on my trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“They” are my moo minicards.

Don’t get me wrong. I love CoryWest Media’s business cards: elegant, professional and formal. But, they don’t mention my blog, they talk about the company.

Because I’m making the rounds at blogging conferences and social media events, I wanted to have a second card that represents my creative side.

Thanks goes out to Wendy Piersall, CEO of Sparkplugging.com for sharing her moo minicards with our mastermind group and inspiring me to get my own.

Moo’s tagline’s is think small, share big.  So, I’m sharing here – what do you think?

Here’s what I love about moo minicards. . .

cute size: 1″ x 2.75″ inches [suddenly 2' x 3.5" business cards seem too big]

do-it-yourself design: upload images, select framing, type in text and you’re done

affordable price: $19.95 per hundred, plus shipping

printing flexibility: order up to 100 different cards – all in the same batch!

quick delivery: my order arrived 3 days before the estimated delivery date

environmentally responsible packaging: hand-packed in recyclable packaging

impressive quality: higher than I expected from an online printer

instant public relations: hey, if everyone on the street wanted one, how do think they’ll go over in your business circle?

Your moo minicard card order includes six lines of text, here’s what I wrote:

    Wow, they look cute indeed! Can I have some? :) And I think your idea to having the original business cards and these ones are great, as it’s easier to target different people with them.

    K, trying again cause my first comment just disappeared :)

    The moo minicards look really cute! Can I have some?:) I think you’ve had a great idea keeping the original business cards and these separate, as they can reach different groups of people depending on what part of your work they’re interested in.

    Barbara, you’ve inspired me to get these. Joanna Young gave me one at SOBCon, and my first thought was, cool! The first thing I’ve seen in a business card that’s really different in, like, thirty years.
