Be a Professional: Update Your Business Cards!

Services for Real Estate Pros with BRE# 01392374

Read to the end for a special BOGO discount on business cards from PrinterBees!


Are you one of the Realtors® who has a stack of business cards with pen marks through your contact info and new information scribbled in?

Or, do you look NOTHING like the photo on your business card?

If that’s you, it’s time for an update!

Business Cards Show Professionalism

If you’ve got information on your card that is incorrect, or scratched out with new info written in, you’re sending a clear message to your prospects and customers.

If you look absolutely NOTHING like the photo on your card, you’re sending the same clear message.

“I’m not taking my business seriously as a professional!” 

Honestly, business cards are SO affordable – especially with our BOGO deal this week – that there’s no reason not to have correctly updated cards at all times.

You need to have your brokerage’s most current logo, a recent picture, and your most current information. It shows you’re a professional!

Business Cards Let You Tie in Other Promos

It’s important to always tie together your marketing as much as possible. This is simple when you update your business cards regularly!

Make sure your card includes current links to your most-used social media, whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, or another platform. You should also have a link to your primary website where prospects can access your blog or community page along with current listings.

Finally, do you have a free download you use to get an email or mailing information from prospects? Include the link on your business card! Curious recipients will go check out your offer and you’ll be able to stay in touch more easily.

Avoid Outdated Design

If your business cards were designed in the late 90’s, let me tell you something – everyone knows!

As a Realtor®, you can’t afford to look “behind the times.” Technology is changing too fast and customers expect you to use the most up-to-date marketing tactics available to sell their home. If your business card was cool 20 years ago, they’ll assume your business acumen hasn’t kept up either.

Instead, choose from updated, modern business card templates designed to match your brokerage. You don’t need to be behind the times. Grab an updated design today!

You Can’t Afford to Stand Out the Wrong Way

With the real estate market hot, there’s more competition than ever for real estate agents. More agents are entering the field, and more homeowners believe that they can go it alone and save money on commissions.

If you’re going to stand out and show homeowners you’re the real estate agent for their needs, you have to have your business cards in order. Most of the time, they’re your very first impression! You can’t afford to stand out for the wrong reasons.

PrinterBees is here to make it easier. 

THIS WEEK ONLY, buy 500 business cards and get 500 identical business cards free when you use the promo code UPDATE18. You can’t beat that! 

Offer expires Friday, September 14th.

Good morning Nadine Larder,

Great reminder to update your cards especially with a recent photo! I see some agents and look at their cards and have no clue who this person is!

Thanks for the reminder! In the past, I had only ordered when I ran low or there was a sale.

I agree with Dorie. I hate it when the picture on a business card looks nothing like the actual person presenting it. In my mind it's a form of false advertising. I always keep mine up to date especially the picture. I would be embarrassed if a potential client felt like they were meeting two different looking people.
