I get a fine warm feeling when I'm doing well, but that pleasure is pretty much negated by the pain of getting started each day. Let's face it, writing is hell.

The Business Card Presentation


Imagine that you're at a trade show, and you want your business card to stand out of the crowd. How do you do that? I don't know that there is a way to do that today, frankly. I've not seen one. But how about this?

Does that make it more memorable?

I think if you were to present that at a trade show dealing with art/cards/etc, it would show off your art AND creativity, right away. First impressions go a long way.

I used to attend CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Chicago and most of the time when business cards were exchanged they got a glance, at best. We used to go back to the hotel room at night and sort through them. A lot you didn't even remember getting. A LOT of cards exchange hands at those conventions. I think if someone presented me with the above card I'd remember getting it and who gave it to me.

I registered and it now points to the Connection Pack on the Art By Brett web site. Boo-ya!

As I move these in front of folks, I'm finding some traction - much more so than my larger cards. I think I'll start meeting with companies with sales reps and doing as I did this morning with a local radio station: give them some freebies to give to their account executives to use and then come back for their feedback.

I'm also checking into getting a half-moon die-cut into the back of the card to better hold a business card.

Yessss! I'd like to sell 1,000 Connection Packs by the end of the year. That's 15,000 cards... let's see what I can do.
