A business card that includes your full contact information is a useful and subtle tool. Make a judgment as to whether your work or personal email is best. Include a statement under your name that summarizes your qualifications better than your current title does, if you have one. For instance, “CFO with 20 years of strategic financial development and leadership experience.” Below is an example for a marketing person:
Having your own personal stationery, such as letterhead, thank you cards and envelopes can help improve your networking success. Whenever you network, lots of correspondence is exchanged beyond sending email. Think about the impression that someone leaves with you when they send a hardcopy thank you note that has been personalized for them. I do not know about you, but I think much more positively about the person. The fact that they care so much about their personal image is impressive to me.
