Because you have the wrong email address on your business card!!! Why do business owners not check this information before they pass out their cards?
Yesterday I was at the SUMMER KICK OFF NETWORKING EVENT at the Sheraton in Eatontown and collected over a couple of dozen of business cards from my networking efforts. I got home and emailed them all the lasted issue of the Jersey Shore Community Information Bulletin as promised. Three got bounced because the email address on the card does not exist! Yes I checked all three and I entered them correctly…
One, a start-up business, even had the website listed incorrectly. It has a “@” were a period should be. All it takes is a little step back and review the cards or have someone like myself review it for them. I do this for my clients all the time. Some clients even sent me a proof copy of their ads to make sure the information is correct. If they are spending money on the ad they want it as correct as possible. You know the Magazine or Newspaper never checks as long as the check clears and the client Oks the proof… right or wrong it get printed.
So keep that is mind have someone else check the printed material and test the email and website addresses.
