K.I.S.S., or, Keep It Simple Silly (well, not quite, but you get my drift.)
Your business cards need to tell the world what you do.
People do not care about fancy logos or flashy company names.
Heck, most times, they could care less about “Who” you are.
They just want to know “WHAT” you can do.

There was a post about this very topic last month, and here was my respinse then;

Business Cards - What to put on them? - Posted by SteveA (FL)

Posted by SteveA (FL) on February 11, 2000 at 06:27:55:

Any suggestions on what to put on business cards? I’ve printed up 3 different versions, some with my name, some with only my phone # and address. Currently, they say:

Need To Sell Your House?
Handyman special? Absentee owner? Moved?
Need a quick closing? Need cash?
address & phone #

I’m concerned about coming off too “slick”. I don’t want to hand my card to an agent and them think “Oh, another one of these fly-by-night guys.” But I also don’t want to scare off those that aren’t educated in real estate and would see a simpler card as too “serious”.

I was thinking of doing something simple like:

Real Estate Bought and Sold

(address and phone #)

Suggestions? What do yall use? Samples?
(My target is to do wholesale/retail flips.)

One version is obnoxious green/orange yellow has printing all over it for what you can do for your prospect. You use the card for advertizing. The second version is for professional contacts. And that is how you want it to look.
