As a writer, having a business card is important. If you want to network with editors, literary agents and other writers, and be taken seriously, having a professional looking business card can help you. This is one of the many things I learned from attending a Writers Conference a couple of years ago. When you’re part of a huge crowd and you’re all trying to network with agents and editors, you need a way to stand out and be remembered. A business card can do just that.
What you need on your card:
Title (specify your genre)
Website (your blog, etc.)
Your picture (This is optional. It’s mainly for when you attend a Writers Conference. The picture will help agents and editors remember you, since they meet so many writers).
There are quite a few websites online where you can pick a design and print your cards for a low price, but they won’t be unique and memorable, unless you have it custom designed.
I was a Graphic Designer for 10 years, before I became a stay-at-home mom a couple of years ago. And because I know how important it is to have a business card, I am offering a special deal to all you writers out there.
I have 6 days left to raise enough funds for my writing project, Poetry for Paris. Poetry for Paris means so much to me, and I could really use your help. So, I am willing to offer an extra perk — I will design your business card for your pledge.
What this means:
If you pledge $100 in the next 5 days, I will write you a poem, mail you a copy of the movie Midnight in Paris, plus, the soundtrack (a value of about $25) AND if you NEED a business card, I will design yours for free. I’m only offering this extra perk to bloggers and writers, so you won’t see it featured on my Poetry for Paris page.
Business card design:
If you pledge $100, and would like to take advantage of my business card design offer, simply email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
What happens after you send me an email?
I will need your business card information (name, email, phone, website, etc.)
If you have a logo you would like me to use, please email it to me.
I will get back to you within 48 hours or less with 2 designs to choose from.
You will have 3 rounds of tweaks (if needed) and then I will email you the final files, which you will need in order to get them printed.
I am not designing logos. I am only designing the layout of the business cards.
This special deal is only good for the next 5 days! Claim your perks now and let me help you for helping me.
A HUGE thank you to those who have already pledged!
