Create Business Cards and Leave Lasting Impressions

It’s an old-school, tried-and-true tactic and it still works today. Consider using a company like Vistaprint to create affordable, high-quality business cards. Then, add your dedicated Sideline work number to keep your career and personal life separate.

There are tons of places to leave your business cards: with satisfied customers, at coffee shops, in related books and magazines, at other local businesses, on bulletin boards, in waiting rooms, at malls/food courts, in municipal buildings, and around local college campuses, to name a few.
