This is a guest post by Barbara Lopez of Brightfarm Introductions. Barbara helped me to elevate my Elevator Pitch at networking events and ’round robin’ situations.
What do you do with all of the business cards that you collect from networking functions and business meetings? Do they stack up on your desk, while you try to determine what to do with them next? That’s what happens for most people.
I will be the first to admit that sometimes when things get hectic, I can accumulate stacks of cards, waiting for me to do something with them. However, I do have a great organizing binder for housing them so that they don’t take up precious desk space.
It’s my pleasure to share some tips on how I organize and store my own collection of business cards, with a simple binder system.
I created a short and simple tutorial video which will tell you step by step exactly the supplies that you need, as well as how to organize your business cards.
Watch the tutorial video.
Be sure to catch the “blooper” at the end!
Or, if you’d rather just jump on this project, you can go straight to the blog page with written supply list and directions.
Whichever you choose to do, it’s very important to do something with the business cards you collect at networking functions and in your daily travels. You’ll feel much more organized, and will enjoy having all of your contacts at your fingertips.
