“Modern online techniques without a doubt help to spread the word about business” comments David Leake, Managing Director of local design & print company *Spot On “but evidence still seems to suggest that old fashioned methods, such as printed business cards can still be effective in helping to market business”
42% of the business participants stated that if they were to hand out 100 business cards, to potential clients, it would generate over £5000 a year in extra revenue. This relates to an amazing £9.45bn when spread across the UK’s small to medium sized businesses (SME’s)
“Although the digital age is here to stay” adds David Leake “this news is a positive factor for our Industry and recognises the Power of Print!”
As more and more Businesses, Organisations and Individuals use the online communication world to send out their messages and images and spread the word, evidence appears to be coming to light that the printed word is still popular, at least amongst the business sector!
“Even though most businesses consider websites as their most important marketing tool” continues David “and indeed, we ourselves have just launched our new online *e-commerce sit, it’s good to see that good old fashioned methods such as the printed business card is as effective as ever”
