Why just have 250 or 500 business cards when it only costs a few more dollars to have 5,000 or 10,000.

  MASSIVE BUSINESS CARDS. If you want massive results, take massive actions! Why just have 250 or 500 business cards when it only costs a few more dollars to have 5,000 or 10,000.Most people don't realize that to print such large numbers costs surprisingly little as most of the cost is in the set up of the printing. To make several thousand more cards, the printers just leave the press run a few more minutes! The cost of the extra paper is minor. You really use so little paper when a business card is made because the cards are so small. What do you do with so many business cards? Well, first of all, you should have printed a card worth keeping with some interesting information on it. Don't have just your name and phone number on it, make it interesting, then you could leave the cards everywhere you go. This means any restaurant, store or public place you go to, leave a stack of 20 or 30 cards. If people are interested they'll pick one up.

You are right I always order 2500 cards per order. One broker I interviewed with explained I would be getting 1000 cards per month that I would be required to distribute. I cant do that every month, but about 3-4 months per year I blow out 1000 cards per month and the results are amazing.

I was told in Real Estate School, before I ever bacame a salesperson that the amount of cards you hand out is related to how many closings you have.  I try to give away as many as possible!
