Business cards for loan officers is one of the most important, cost-effective and versatile marketing tools to have. Because they're inexpensive, easy to carry with you and easy to get in front of people. Especially for businesses just starting out.
However, your card needs to make a great impression. A well-designed business card can effectively promote your business, but there's a good chance that if your card looks unprofessional, it may be thrown in the dustbin or just lie in a drawer, collecting dust. Your business card needs to tell people what you and your business is about, instead of only telling people who you are and where to contact you.
Planning, designing and having your cards printed.
For your business card to be the marketing tool it should be, there are a few things you must take into consideration when planning and designing your cards.
Get professional quality business cards printed for you. Sure, you could print them on your laser jet and cut them with scissors. You'll get what you pay for and worse than that, people will question whether they can trust you with their business if it seems you can't afford to print full color business cards.
Pay attention to the finer details on your card. A logo is important, so invest some time and effort in the design of your logo to make it stand out in the crowd.
A thin, flimsy card, pre-made, off the shelf design and small or unreadable text makes a bad impression. Use color and images for impact and good design principles to make your business card pleasing and easy to read.
Be proactive and keep your information up to date. If any of your contact or other information has changed, you will appear to be disorganized when you have to scratch out and write new information on your card, so throw away those cards and have new, up to date ones printed.
If possible hire a graphic designer to help you. They are professional and know what works and what doesn’t.
Maximize the usability of your card. You're not limited to only the front of your business cards. Use the back of your card for more information. Keep in mind that people often write on business cards, so leaving some white space on the back is generally a good idea.
Your company name or your title tells someone what you have to offer. If it doesn’t, add some words to explain what you do. Showing what you do makes you stand out. Let everyone who sees your card know what services you provide.
Avoid making the following mistakes when you have your cards made. It can cost you dearly.
