    I don't usually care much for the rubbish on 9gag, but after someone shared this on Facebook, it got me thinking. I'm a firm believer that a little creativity in terms of marketing is always a good thing, and may just give you that edge you need to convince a client to buy your stuff.

    I'd be interested to hear of any success anyone has had doing something similar with their business cards.

    I always appreciate creativity and there are some great examples here.

    Whilst I don't think a creative business card will necessarily lead to a sale directly, I do think it will indirectly lead to more business.

    If someone gave me one of these cards at a meeting or conference, there are two things that will happen for sure.

    1. I will keep the card - and it will stay in my wallet a lot longer than usual before it gets filed with all the other cards I have.

    2. I am going to show the card to other people. And there are going to be times when those other people are in need of the service on the card.

    If I had a card along these lines I would give them to people in 2s or 3s as they are very likely to be passed along to more people.


    I think they are great marketing tools!

    Yeah exactly. They almost have a viral factor about them. They give you something to talk about.
