Business Cards Feedback Rally 2023

Post by Casey H » Tue Nov 07, 2023 5:07 am

Once again, it was great meeting so many Taxi members and guests at Rally '23. Every year I go home with a stack of business cards and I try to follow up by listening to songs, giving feedback and suggestions (if I have any), looking for new collaborators, etc.

In my class this year, I said that if anyone wants a list of the reference songs I played, please leave me a business card so I could email out the list. Quite a few cards were unusable for that. They had: Phone number but no email address, website address but no email address, etc. One had a crossed out email address and a note: "Text me at [phone number]". Another had a QR code which I couldn't open unless I logged in to the Soundcloud app on my phone. I haven't gone through the cards I got during 1:1 mentoring yet but I expect I'll find a few with similar issues.

I'm one of the very few who will go out of my way to figure out how to listen to tunes and contact the person, but I'm not the norm there. Most others will just toss them in the trash. Please keep all this in mind for next year. :geek:

Anyway, I hope everyone who attended had a great rally. :D

Best,
:D Casey

I've noticed on several cards that the phone or email is almost impossible to read. My eyes are getting older, but man, some of those typefaces are tiny!

I had the same problem on some cards. I also recommend using a very light background such as white or light gray so you can write notes on the card.

USE FONT FOR OLD PEOPLE! :lol:

I’d be one of those :roll: Serves me right for leaving it to the last minute to get cards done. Next time better.

Yea, that's the ticket! :lol: Clear and readable. You should add a QR code for your website. :D

Best,

I would put the QR on the front. People might not realize it's there if on the back. Make it as easy as possible with a 1 sided card. :D JMHO :geek: :D

I will do that when I order more! In the meantime I will “write, record, submit, repeat”.
