Business cards for freelance PHP Developers
Posted 10 July 2006 - 04:33 PM
currently, i have the list of techonologies i use:
Web 2.0 (not too fond of the terminology but it's what clients love seeing... :/)
also, on the other side of the card, i have a list of things i'm capable of...but i'm not sure what i can add there so i was wondering if any of you had any suggestions.
this is my current list:
Content Management Systems (it was too long so i shortened it to CMS...i hope they know what it means)
as developers yourselves, you know that these terms aren't exactly the best ones, but i have to use terms that the average businessman understands.
any suggestions? i think the words i've chosen are too long...

I do not have the technologies offered because what if I add one? What if I find something better to use then whats listed.
I just tell them to visit the website for more details.

i agree about being careful listing what technologies you use. it's possible to limit yourself with a listing like this as opposed to enhancing your contacts. if you fail to list one that you do, someone may not want to contact you because your card doesn't say that you do it. i like to think of my cards as a way to get people to call me or visit my site. if i can get them there, they'll get all the information they need.
i suppose that rationale would work in a developed country but in a third world country like Sri Lanka, not everyone has the net :/
so it's important for me to list what i can do, even if it's only specific to that moment in time.
anyway, this thread is about suggestions for anything i could add not the current state of the business card
