Hi, this is Jonathan Jay from The Dealmaker’s Academy.
Welcome to this top tips video and today, a very, very simple tip, but I know a lot of Dealmakers don’t do this.
Now this is something that you really must do and that is you need to have a business card.
You need to have a good old-fashioned business card.
You need to have them with you at all times and you need to have them in your pocket and you need to be able to swap business cards, not just give them out.
But you need to receive them as well and one little tip when you receive a business card what I always do is I take a pen and I make a note on the card of something about that person so that when I get back to my hotel room when I get back home I know who it is I’ve been talking to because sometimes it can get really confusing when you’ve got half a dozen cards, you don’t know who’s who.
So, really good tip, but an old-fashioned tip perhaps, is have a business card, swap business cards, keep your business cards safe because you never know when you might need someone who you could be doing a deal with.
