Yes the poll for my previous card (the graffiti style with the mini me on it)was hardly conclusive and I so want to be individual in my way of doing things however I have to accept what my clients and indeed potential clients are saying –
“Is your daughter the therapist or you?” – that did hurt a bit
“Really, it’s a nice card but how can I take you seriously?” – well I have spelled out my credentials and I have stated the reasons for the card design but hey I’m open to change just as you are (I hope)
“It’s a kindergarten kiddy-on piece of….” – it’s nice to be nice!
There were of course some who liked it and saw beyond the card as they had heard of me and appreciated that I provide a good valued,professional service to client’s and I am fully considerate of their needs.
However it’s a competitive world and as such I have designed a new card which, although in my opinion will not stand me out from the crowd, it will prove that I take what I do seriously and reflects my honestly to provide a professional clinical hypnotherapy service to my clients.
some love it and some hate (hence the Marmite effect – incidentally I am on the “love Marmite” side)
Basically I feel hypnosis / hypnotherapy should be tailored to the needs of the individual and as such, in support of this view, I asked my daughter to help me design an unique one-off card for her Daddy. (The picture is of me without my glasses but wearing my kilt !)
I think the card is as individual as the therapy I believe in.
It is easy to get a business card “off the shelf” with an attractive design and printed text. Indeed I used to have such cards until I found another therapist using the same design as me, obviously with their own details printed on the card.
So I would like to get some feedback on this topic and indeed if you would vote in the poll that would be grand also.
Life is about choices and your business card should, to me anyhow, express your individuality as much as possible.
Yes we are all on the same journey but is it not better to do it your way?
