Business Cards have been seen as the most important tool physical networkers have because:
- You can hand them out
- You can collect them to follow up later
- They advertise your business – direct marketing
- They create a lasting impression
But they are a cost and like all costs you should work out whether the benefit exceeds the cost.
A lot of networking is now done online though Linked In, Facebook and Twitter and its becoming the focus of advertising spend
So should you now stop using physical business cards and switch to e cards like about me
