Just like calling cards of days past, the new brand of social calling cards are smart, distinctive and a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd. As a mommy blogger (but you’ll never catch me calling myself that.. oh, wait..), social calling cards are a great way to share my site with family and friends who can’t seem to make FatHeadDog.com a household name. I don’t understand why..
Great uses for Calling Cards and how to order a set free:
- Social networking: Instead of handing over your business card, a personal calling card is a less stuffy way of sharing your vital information and pass along your personal email and phone number. Jobs change but your personal email stays with you and personal calling cards are the perfect solution for that.
- Job prospects: Do you really want to give a potential employer your work email address and phone number? Ensure you don’t get yourself in trouble with your current employer by emailing a future employer by handing out your personal information instead.
- Mommy cards: If play dates, book clubs, carpools and Gymboree classes have replaced hot dates and spa weekends, use a calling card to share your info with other mommies on the go.
- Class reunions/parties: If you’ve ever dug in your purse for a pen and a piece of paper, then you need a calling card. Fast and easy.. the calling card, not you.
The best part is you don’t have to pay alot. Print them yourself. Go to Vistaprint for personalized free samples to get you started.
