in 2017, with minimal effort to find material, buy and ship food, and fully accomplish your daily work without ever leaving your home. In times when social media and technology, the past, many practices have lost their significance and fell on the sidewalk. The importance of a business card is no different. Or this? I will try to reveal the purpose and relevance of network devices in the era of social media, determining whether there is a practice here or one.
So, what's the business card?
quick Google search and find out that a business card is a card printed with a small business card, a professional job, a corporate position, a business address, and other relevant contact information. Earlier they came from Angloping in the 17th century, where businesses used them for advertising and maps, as street counting systems did not exist at that time (Ward).
Why Are Business Cards Necessary?
In Japanese culture, business cards are treated as extensions of a person and are always treated with respect and respect (balance). It is important that you have a continuous impression, even if you are no longer physically present, and the use of business cards makes this possible. These elements form the need for business cards and why they go beyond social media in certain situations. Although social media has many ways to find and keep an eye on it, there is only a physical exchange of a business card that will consolidate the relationship. This is the real relationship we're all looking for, and we still find 88% of Americans who have found their significant routines through the popularity of online dating (Smith and Anderson 2016).
I recently received a commercial card in the form of a free 6-concert music service subscription and although I used the card's purpose, I still have to discard it. I just love the look and feel of the card and admire the great care that was taken during the design. This appreciation allows this card to be extended and is now a reminder of the occasion. If this ad was received by text or email, the long-lasting good look would not be present and I will no longer welcome her praise. This is what we all strive to do in our everyday interactions, so it would not be beneficial to do this with a potential client or employer?
Social media have the advantages, are able to streamline and contact with a touch of a button that is huge upside down but can not continuously establish the relationships we can rely on. Once we get a chance for a first impression, and in business, a business card is the device that successfully passes that impression away for a long time.
The business card is the first or last thing people give to them when they meet with them and as a result the item they will remember (Schussler & Karlins 2011).
