10 Best Places to Place Your Business Cards

Do you provide your business card potential customers  & business contacts in order to advertise your business? You do? Let’s hope they not sitting unwrapped in the bottom of your office drawer. We would like to offer your some great ideas of where to distribute your business cards after we’ve delivered them.

  1. Metro Rail Ticket Purchase Points – The next time you decide to travel by train, be sure to leave some business cards at the information desk or ticket office, or even stick some against the inside of the train carriage. Repeat this exercise each time you take the train. Most that commute via train are bored & will read anything lying about and your card may get the attention of a potential customer.
  2. On Taxis – Alternatively, if you prefer to travel via taxi, feel free to hand out your cards to other passengers in the van. Taxi drivers only clean their taxis at the end of the day, so your cards, if left behind, will be hanging around all day. Even better would be to give a set of cards to the door operator to hand out to new passengers after you’re gone.
  3. On the Bus – Depending on the type of products or services you offer, you can either choose to drop your cards off at local bus terminals or at the information helpdesks of national bus transfer points, e.g. if you provide a  local service, sticking your cards on the inside of the bus would be okay, however if your service is available nationally, it would be best to use national bus terminals where more business people would be able to see it.
  4. At the Bank – This is a great place to leave your business cards, especially as most banks have a separate section in-brand for business banking. Be sure to drop your cards at the tellers (with permission of course) or at the helpdesks, so that others can see your card displayed with your service offerings.
  5. Your Accountant’s Offices – When you visit your accountant next, drop your card on their desk, in plain view of the person sitting opposite them, but hidden from your account himself.
  6. Business Service Centres – There are government or non-profit organisations (NPOs) who provide local business services to help others get started or need help setting up their business. Discreetly leave your business cards at the main reception desk, so new people visiting the centre will pick it up while waiting.
  7. Local Restaurants – Leaving your business cards behind in menus and bill holders at local restaurants is also a handy trick. Prevent leaving them on the tables, as they usually immediately cleared after somebody leaves.
  8. Supermarket Noticeboards & Tillpoints – These are great places to leave your cards, in the magazine racks at the till points or pin them on the notice boards at the front of the store. People bored in queues will read anything that catches their eyes
  9. Public Business Conference Rooms – Most businesses offering virtual office type services usually have 1 or 2 local conference rooms that businesses can use to have face-to-face client meetings when needed & usually these rooms experience good amounts of traffic with various businesses coming in and out. Leaving your business cards behind after your next meeting may well be beneficial.
  10. Local Take-Aways – Lastly, another great spot to drop your business cards in the city is at local take-away shops where affluent people pick up lunch to eat at the office are likely to see them.

Try being creative when thinking about where and when to leave your business cards. An optional extra is to get yourself a slimline box with sticky-tape & position the box filled with your business cards in a prime position to quickly get people’s attention. If you own a small business & you’re on a budget, there are some great ways to properly advertise your business cheaply. So start using your imagination & spread those business cards.
