It's the MOOsLETTER!
What are you doing?

Twitter Business Cards Oh, Twitter! Everyone's on it, including us. Whether you're marketing to customers or chatting to friends, sharing your Twitter URL is now as valid as sharing your email address. Matt Sanford's Twitter card (right) made us laugh, while these, by Mike Coulter are a great talking point - and an interesting way to share customer testimonials with potential new clients.
If you like meeting people for real, why not take your MOO Business Cards to one of the 200 Twestival meetups around the world and help them raise money for some great charities.

What you're really doing. (A Twitter fact).

MOO Research has shown that compared to the same period in July, the number of people putting a Twitter URL on the backs of their Business Cards has increased by 64% in August!

On the road again

Conference Discount We're headed to sunny San Diego, California soon for the Creative Freelancer Conference, presented by HOW magazine and Marketing Mentor, on August 26-28.

This year's event will cover tricky topics like dealing with difficult clients and staying creative in the current economic climate. If you're a freelance designer, copywriter, illustrator, photographer, or other creative solopreneur, this is a great event to share your experiences and learn from others.

As a special deal for MOO Newsletter subscribers, our friends at the Conference are offering a 'buy one conference registration, and get the second one at half price' deal! So grab a friend, register (and split your costs), and meet us in San Diego. Don’t forget to stop by the MOO table for discounts and insider gossip. We’d love to see you!

Making the most of your portfolio - online!

Pocket Portfolio
We often talk about making a ‘portfolio for your pocket’ with Business Cards - like these, right, by photographer, Simon Warren. Printing a Printing a different piece of creative work on each card is easy - so you can showcase the full range of your talents.

We also know that sometimes, you need to share a link to a portfolio online... Recently, we’ve discovered Behance - it's an interesting creative network, but even better, there are tools to help you build and display a portfolio of unlimited multimedia projects, for free. They get around 13 million page views a month, so if you're looking for ways to get your work out to a new audience, it's worth a look.

And that's all for now,

Have a great week,
The MOO Crew
