Networking Tip: Scribble on Business Cards

I was at a conference this past weekend with my best friend and noticed her furiously scribbling on the business cards we just exchanged with people. "Why are you defacing the cards?!" I asked, horrified. She then explained the method behind her apparent madness, and it was such a brilliantly simple idea that I knew I had to share it with you.

When you receive too many biz cards at a networking event, it's hard to keep track of whom those cards belong to. You can deal with this problem by simply scribbling a quick note about the person. For example, you can write what you were talking about with the person and if you need to get in touch with them. The best ideas are always so easy, yet nifty!

Great for both of you! Agree that it's such an instinctive move. Gosh, bluebellknoll, how do you organize those business cards?? Hundreds of biz cards sound very painful.

Teehee. I was about to say the same thing. DUH! I used to work trade shows and i would literally have hundreds of business cards at the end of every day. The only ones that didn't have notes were the least important ones.
