As many of you know, I am the founder and organizer of the Show Me the Blog Social Media and Blogging Conference which is partaking in its second annual gathering this year. I decided to order business cards for myself and for my Communications Director, Kim, because we needed to separate this enterprise from our other blogs and businesses.
Zazzle is my go-to place for ordering cards, so I went into the task of creating the cards online with our logo and entering the correct information. I placed my order and went about my business. That was, until it hit me that I didn’t add an important vital piece of information on the business card.
I forgot to add an email address!
Of course it was too late for me to add it. Once you approve the card and issue payment, there is no way to correct the problem. So last week, our cards arrived sans email address.
I am the one who, as a consultant, chastises my clients for having incorrect information on their business cards. Who really takes scratched out, pen edited business cards (and the people that hand them out) seriously? And here I was, being guilty of doing the same thing. Tsk tsk tsk.
So what is the moral of this story?
Make sure your business cards have all of the correct information on it BEFORE you order your them.
As for our cards, Kim and I are going to use them until they run out; then of course, the next order will be RIGHT! Thank goodness I only ordered 200!
