Here are three clever ways to use everyday business cards to make your holiday marketing lustre.

1. Business cards as loyalty cards

Design your business card to contain your business information on one side and your loyalty programme information on the other side. Loyalty cards are used to track the number of purchases a customer makes. Meanwhile, companies reward their loyal customers depending on how many purchases they’ve made, which encourages them to become repeat buyers.

2. Business card as tags

To enhance your packaging with high-quality gift or product tag, design a business card with this use in mind, then punch a hole in the card. Add some ribbon or twine to give your presentation a little extra flair. Interesting, right?

3. Business cards as referral cards

Referrals aid word of mouth marketing, which is essential to increase the customer base of any business. You too can create such a marketing opportunity by designing a business card with a special refer-a-friend discount on one side. Referral cards are simply the best way to expose your business to a greater community of potential clients. Also, a simple referral with an offer looks clean, professional, and will only do your business good.
