I Have Your Business Card, Now What? (Updated)

I originally posted an article about what to do with business cards in September 2010 and now I would like to revisit this with more insight:

Every time you meet someone it’s an opportunity to tell them about yourself and eventually hand over a business card.  I just attended Lucky FABB and collected several of them.  When you make the exchange (hopefully the other person has one too), what happens next?  Do you have a Rolodex full of cards never used?  Does it get buried under a bunch of other cards?  Do you take one look at it and throw it away? Does it show up in a pocket of an item you wear a year later? I hope the answers to these questions are no.  So what should you do?

1. Once you get a business card take a quick look at it while you’re in the presence of the other person, acknowledging that there is at least some interest and then put it away.

2.  IMPORTANT!! Within 24 – 48 hours (or as soon as possible if it’s not feasible within that timeframe) send an email to the person saying it was nice to meet you and let’s keep in touch.   You have no idea how far that goes and it’s so important!

3.  Check out their website and what they do.   They may or may not be of use to you, but possibly you can refer them to someone who might.

If you’re not into carrying business cards you can go digital and follow them on Twitter, befriend them on Facebook, or Like their fanpage.

Another new concept on the scene is contxts.com.  It’s a mobile SMS business card, where you can send your info directly to the recipient via cell or they can text a pre-selected word to a contxt number and get your info.  It’s quick, easy, paperless and free to join.  It also serves as a backup when you run out of business cards! For example text DANIEL to 50500.  What do you get back?

As a savvy businesswoman, I make it a point to do that with every business card I get because that can be another connection and can even turn into a great friend.  I have had that happen several times before and that’s all it took!  Sometimes I don’t get an email back from the person reciprocating the gesture, but at least I did my part and that makes me feel good.  In the end it’s necessary to do that because endless opportunities could arise, whether it’s related to your job or something else.

So, when you get your next business card, PLEASE make sure you followup.  It’s a small step to possibly greater things!

Cheers,

William B + Friends Styling Contest – Vote for Me!

Hello Everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, but I hope you are well!

I attended the grand opening of William B + Friends at Westfield Century City and I entered a styling contest at their store where I had to create a head to toe look.  I scoured the entire store which has a lot of fun, chic, affordable clothing for women and I created this colorful ensemble which was exciting to put together!

William B + Friends fall look I created. Please like this exact photo on their Facebook fan page!

If my photo gets the most likes on Facebook I will win an iPad.  Please go to their FB page and like the photo as I would love to win this as an early Xmas gift!  What I also like about this look is that it can be worn for your 9 to 5 and then for a night out take off the blazer and you have a fab lace top you can rock the night away in!

I put a lot of thought into the outfit and for some reason I feel patriotic in it…

Thank you in advance!!

Winner! Project Runway “Make It Work” Contest

Back in July right before Project Runway Season 10 started, a contest began on Twitter for anyone to show off their “Make It Work” moment by tweeting a photo to @ProjectRunway and showing off how you pull it off with clothing and/or accessories.  Of course, for those who know me I was definitely going to share how I make any outfit pop with color and it was a matter of which photo I thought would capture that best at the time.  So I chose the image below and sent off my tweet:

The contest ran for 8 weeks and each week a winner was selected.  Well, I am happy to say that I was chosen as the winner for the first week!  I was notified recently that I was selected and just received my prize in the mail which is a pair of glammed out scissors!  I was so excited to hear that I won and Project Runway is one of my favorite shows to watch.

An exact replica of what I got – studded scissors

So what’s next from me?  Perhaps I’ll be a buyer or start designing my own clothes!  Thanks Project Runway and Lifetime for choosing me as a winner!
