Hey my friends! 🙂 I've been in Atlanta teaching all weekend at the NAMS Conference and had a BLAST as usual! (Pictures are coming soon….)
The last few months, I've been thinking about doing a fun series called Marketing Monday. One thing that happened to me after starting a business is that I became totally interested in the psychology of advertising and marketing.
When I get a magazine, I find that I read the ads and skip most of the articles.
When I watch TV, I am oftentimes more interested in the commercials than in the show — especially when hubby is watching the beginning of a NASCAR race and there aren't enough crashes. 😉
So, I see cool marketing all the time and want to share it. But, as usual, this is going to be more about YOU than me.
Here's how it'll work.
1. I find an interesting piece of marketing.
2. I post it here.
3. You tell me what you think.
The first item is a business card design that was a winner to me.
Yes, that is dental floss. This business card is plastic and contains enough dental floss for several emergencies. It's one you'll want to keep in your purse or wallet, in my opinion. You never know when the chicken is going to be tough or you'll get spinach stuck in your teeth. Better safe than sorry.
Obviously the purpose of this card is to get the recipient to keep it for a long time because it's useful.
So, what do you think is an essential part of marking your business card “stick”? Have you seen any really business card designs lately?
Talk to me. 🙂 Otherwise, I get lonely here.
PS. Thanks mom, for letting me borrow the card so I could scan it. I hope you didn't eat any popcorn last night since I had your floss. 😉
PS again. If you find some cool marketing, please share it with me. If I use it, I'll link to you.
PS one last time. Of course, I have to include an affiliate link since I just taught about including a call to action in your blog posts. So, here it is. lol. If you need some business cards, these are pretty cool: “Skinny” & “Chubby” sized cards.
