Marketing and advertising has its advantages and marketing materials are one of them.
At any given time, during the course of a week, talk about what you do might come up. That might be the perfect time to be succinct about what you do and to hand out a business card or any related marketing material.
Not having a card on hand might feel embarrassing or (since you might be off work and just want to relax or enjoy what ever it is you are doing) you feel “talking shop” while off the clock is not necessary.
It only takes a moment to talk about what you do and hand out a business card or other marketing material. you don’t have to have a lengthy conversation and tell the person or people to give you a call during the week.
Being prepared with your marketing material IS important. The basics are a business card. You may also want to have flyers, sell sheets, mailer cards on hand, neatly tucked into a folder to hand out in the event you see an opportunity.
Don’t feel bad if that particular opportunity does not happen right away or ever with that person(s). This is just part of the process and part of getting your name and what you do out there.
