I created new businesses cards for conferences & conventions that I will be attending this year. When I head to Imaging USA and WPPI, the details I want people to walk away with are different than what I might hand over to a potential boudoir photography client. Instead of just writing details on the card, or hoping that someone remembered them, I felt that making new cards was best.
I’ve written before about how important it is to use a consistant avatar photograph online, and the red wall experience of 2009. With this new card, I wanted to include my current avatar, so when people see me on Twitter or Facebook after the convention, they will recognize me. I included my Twitter account, my personal Facebook page, and my email address. Some of these items are on my regular card, but the Facebook and email information are not.
Yes, I do not have my email address on my regular business cards. I use ShootQ, and I want people to go through my ShootQ contact form to contact me to book sessions. More about that (and my email organization system) in another post.
I also mentioned my business cards in the tips for having an amazing time at Imaging USA 2013 post; I always take business cards with me – you just never know who you will meet that will need one!
I wanted my new cards to have my consistant personal branding, using my signature logo on one side. That side is all about me. I also wanted to include the Business of Awesome branding on them. That is a lot of information to put on one business card, but I have to say that I love how they came out!
I could have handed my regular business cards out to people that I meet at Imaging USA and WPPI, but they aren’t meant for that audience; most photographers that I will be meeting are not going to be booking me for a boudoir session. (If they want to, I will gladly give them one of those cards!) Instead, I want them to know about this site just as much as that one. Having one card that includes everything targeted to this audience makes the most sense.
