Don’t show up empty handed at SXSW.

27th February 2010 by Lisa

Alot of you receive our MOOsletter and will already know that a few of the MOO Crew are off to SXSWi.

We’ll be hanging out at the UK Digital Mission Booth on Saturday March 13th from noon – 3pm. Come by to pick up your pre-orders or just to say hello and we can exchange cards. We look forward to seeing you all in Austin.

If you’ve been to SXSW or any conference before, you’ll know there’s a lot of great socializing (ahem, I mean networking). You get a chance to meet people from all parts of the US, Canada and even some from further afield. The problem I find is remembering everyone I met and why I want to get in touch with them after I get home. There’s always so many people, faces, names, websites, iphone aps etc. that it really is a good idea to have some cards on hand. It doesn’t hurt if your cards not only have your details but have something that remind that potential business partner exactly who and what your business was.

In case you are still looking for promotional ideas for the big conference, here’s a few from the Flickr pool that might get you thinking. (I know some have been shared before, but they’re goodies)

Danielfh has turned his business cards in to mini discount flyers.

And every geek loves stickers (isn’t that true?). Plus they stick around a lot longer than a free pen. Here’s some from Ploc Media appropriately plastered on a laptop.

After 4 nights of SXSW parties, you need to be sure your cards talk when you can’t. Here are some from trakAx who had customer reviews printed on their cards. Business Cards

Also, just a reminder to check you don’t forget to add your twitter details. Or better still why not just share some of your better tweets on your cards like mzsandord.

Finally, we love how Perch has created unique coupons out of their MiniCards. You can read all about how they did it and more about them here.

See you in Austin!

    If I put my order in right now, will you still ship to SxSW for me?

    Pretty please??

    Hi Jody, sadly the last date to place an order for hand delivery at SxSW was Monday. We need time to print them and get them into the hands of the MOO Crew who are leaving early. Depending on when you’re heading off, it’s possible you could still get them delivered to your own home. Our printing and shipping times can be found in our FAQs.
