Social media has become a big part of everyone’s daily routine. Most people check their Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn profile every day in order to stay updated on the latest news in their industry.

Given the importance both business cards and social networking have for striving professionals, here are a few tips to help you make a business card with your social networking information front and center.

Your social media info should be written clearly and placed somewhere where it will be easy to spot. If possible, write the links to your social profiles in full. Remember some people aren’t savvy with social networking, so make it easy for them to figure it out on their own.

If you have a profile for every social network in existence, you don’t have to include them all if they aren’t relevant. Why add your Instagram handle if you only keep family photos on there?

Only include social contact details when they reinforce your professional identity.

Your card is still about your business, not just about your social web presence. Even people who don’t care about social networking may be interested in what you do and may have a use for your skills or promotions.

Give them other ways to get in touch. Always include your email address and the URL to your website, if the site is connected to your business. If you have a local business, also include a phone number and physical address.

  1. The card w/ the icons is a neat idea. looking into that

    • ^ For sure a good idea. I have my handles on my card, and you don’t get an overwhelming amount of contact from them, but I have received a few new followers and such from handing my cards out which presents a new opportunity for free.
