Do You Need a Business Card That Reeks of Pretentiousness and Bling?
It’s tempting to show off your bling and sexiness, but that’s not always the best approach. Showing off your title on your business card is both pretentious and unprofessional. It calls attention to your rank. And if you give your card to others, they’ll be more likely to pass it along and turn you into a company person. But if you don’t want them to think you’re a sleazy jerk, you need to project your leadership qualities.
Firstly, choose a design that is instantly recognizable. This includes creative use of colors, shapes, and words. It’s not about being boring or trying to impress people, but making sure that your business card is connected to your brand and remembered. You should never give any genealogical information on your card – you’re not trying to get people to know you better.
