I’m a big believer in the power of free publicity, especially when it comes to things like advertising, and I had no idea this was such a hot trend.
Cell phone business cards. You can read more about the importance of the cards here.
I’ve actually printed them out and given them to anyone who asked. I can’t think of another company I’ve had printed a card for, so it’s a nice gesture. I get that it might not be the best use of my free promotion, but it sure is a fun thing to be doing.
I actually thought this was a good idea, because it gave me a chance to show how helpful I am to those who are in need, but I wasn’t so sure about its impact. The only people I’ve shown the cards to are people who want to buy or trade cards for free with me. I’ve never had a customer buy a card, and the only person I’ve bought a card for was a group of people who wanted a free card.
I actually thought this was a really nice gesture, but I was also surprised it was one of only two cards i’ve been shown. The other was a free card and I wasnt shown anything about buying a card. I’ve been to many different companies and been shown cards that have included coupons, but this was the first and only time Ive been shown cards that have included their own promo code so you can choose to use it or not.
It’s a cool idea, but I have to wonder if that would have actually happened. I mean, if you bought your own card, you could’ve still used any promo code or coupon you’d already gotten.
Cards are a very old marketing tactic. They are used by companies for a host of reasons including, a) to show a customer that you care about them b) to show that you are going to pay attention to them c) to show that you are reliable. I love seeing promo codes everywhere, and I like seeing promo codes that don’t require cash or a purchase. They are a good way to show that youre willing to pay attention to your customers.
Cards are one of the newest forms of promotion on the web and are one of the most difficult to use. People go out of their way to sign up for card services, but the most commonly used ones aren’t very successful. The biggest problem with cards is that they cost money, so for the most part, you need to go out of your way to get people to use them.
A good example of this is the phone card services that you can find at coffee shops, grocery stores, and even gas stations. You can get the same info on these services but you can tell them to just give you a phone number and you can make the call. The problem though is that calling these services is one of the easiest things in the world to do, so when you get your card number, you get to make the call.
When you use a service like this, you’re basically selling them a phone number. That’s why you’re going to have to use a phone number and not a name, just in case you want people to know you’re not who you say you are.
