Default What to Put on Business Card?

So, I'm making a website for my new LLC and I'm also going to make business cards to answer the whole "who the hell are you and what do you do for a living?" question.

What should I put as my position? Can I leave that blank?

I'd leave the position blank. For the "what do you do", I just say I own an advertising agency. If they ask any other questions I say it's online and usually they're confused by then and just assume I'm a drug dealer.

What do you think?

I haven't printed it yet but probably will next week so please let me know!

The website is only about 90% finished right now, I'll ask for opinions on that when it's done.

Hello Joel,

It looks great.

Some possible suggestions of very minor things that might help to build that image if you plan on handing out cards at trade shows and other venues:
- The posts above have suggested that you have no title under your name. You might want to re-consider that. I'd suggest that under "Joel Walsh" to have a title, such as "President." Having gone through lots of business cards, both given out and received, if you don't have a title, it could suggest a "one man" organization. At trade shows, having President on your cards is very acceptable and gets some extra leverage at times.
- Under your name and possible title, where it reads Enterform LLC - you might want to consider having it read as Enterform, llc or as Enterform, LLC.
- Suite 140-547 suggests that the address is a mail drop or mail center. You might want to consider having it read as 140:547 or 140/547. Or better yet, if they let you choose a number, see if you can get box 141 so that your address reads as Suite 140-141 (or a box around that range such as Suite 140-148). Changing it a little bit like this might make it look more like a suite of yours. I realize it's being picky here and most people probably don't even care, but having mailed out over 7 million letters by first class stamps, I found some things that helped to get people to respond more favorably to my mailings. Also I remember when the post office sent the notice out about 12 years ago about address formatting and both of my suggestions here would fit under the acceptable use.
- Spell out "Las Vegas." The place has some good prestige, might as well bank off of it.

Might I say that the name "Enterform" is really cool and I think people will really take to it.

-Aaron

Wow, you really know your stuff!

Hmm...of course, it is a one-man show, and it is a mail drop...how far do you think I should go in hiding this?

By the way, the business is just my same old affiliate act. For the time being I'm not planning on branching out...hmm...lots to think about...

Joel,

Yeah... I admit my suggestions could be overkill. Your posts in PPC have helped me so much, I just wanted to somehow return the favor.

As a little bit of background, I was involved with a company a few years back that was doing ok and had some value. It wasn't until we hired a Washington, DC, Public Relations company last August (for a mid-five figures monthly) that the company then became worth several tens of millions, and was able to bring in lots of investors.

The company hadn't really changed anything, it was just the perceived value that was created by the image the PR created. The PR company kept telling us that image is everything, and it seemed to be the case.

I really like the way you made your logo -- makes your brand look really good and your card design portrays a good image just as it is.
