Business cards at conferences

Here’s a great trick for anyone exhibiting at a conference, especially a more grass-roots conference where people are networking for themselves instead of their employer.

Print business cards for attendees who don’t have any (or used them up).  All you need is a cheap color printer, some pre-perforated business card paper, and a laptop with a template set up.

It’s great:

  • Costs less than $1 per person
  • They are grateful — and they tell every single person at the event about where they got the cards
  • The prospect stands in the booth and talks to your sales reps, totally focused, while you make the cards
