A business card is a staple of almost every single business that gets started. They are inexpensive and should be given out whenever possible.

Distributing them gives you the chance to spread the word about what you do. Done right they are an invaluable tool for getting new business via word of mouth.

When we were getting our business off the ground we gave them out just about anywhere you could imagine. That included networking events, to family and friends, our personal doctors and dentists and even while standing in line at the supermarket. Everyone we had a conversations with got a business card!

One way to INCREASE the livelihood of a return call is to make your card MEMORABLE. You need some way to make it UNIQUE. A simple way to do that is by turning your ordinary run of the mill card into a MAGNETIC BUSINESS CARD.

You do this by purchasing Adhesive Business Card Magnets and sticking them to the back of your card. Presto… you just turned your business card into one that can now get stuck to any metal surface. This includes refrigerators and filing cabinets to name just a few.

I can’t tell you how many of these magnetic business cards I’ve seen over the years, but it’s a lot. For some reason nobody throws them away. It’s like they become too valuable to toss in the trash. And as a result your name and contact info stays in front of the potential client for MUCH LONGER than a regular card does.

So if you have tons of cards lying around, then you may want to consider getting some Adhesive Business Card Magnets and start turning the ordinary into something that STANDS OUT from the competition. You need every advantage you can get, and this is an easy one to pull off!

Hi,
We were given an opportunity to bid for an apartment complex, but we don’t have a clue in what to bid and how much. Should we charge hourly or per the building’s square foot. Their are 3 buildings, 2 buildings have 3 floors and 1 building has 4 floors, one fitness center, and two community rooms. They want each building clean in 8 hours and I have the total square footage for all of the buildings at 172,880.

Please advice.

Thanks

Santiago

You need to price by the hour. I can’t sum up how to bid this in a paragraph. I have an entire chapter dedicated to this question in my Start-Up Guides. Details here: http://www.cleaning-4-profit.com/start-your-own-cleaning-business/

Hey Tom,
Just starting a new business, what’s a good way to distribute my business cards to some commercial businesses I want to target?

Walk around and hand them out. Join some networking groups. Go to real estate offices. It all starts with ACTION.
