    quick business card question

    Hi i'm thinking of having some business cards made up as one way to get the word spread for my web hosting.

    one thing they tend to have on there is your job title (ie manager, etc), i was just wondering what sort of thing could i put here as it's just me running it with a reseller account.

    Hope that made sense to someone

    Thanks

    You could use either of:

    - Founder
    - Operations Manager
    - Just your name, no title

    Hope this helps,

    IMO, I believe this two are usually used in a corporation/incorporation setting.

    I would just go with no subtitle. I mean... it really depends on how you want to be viewed.

    I have seen some peoples cards (who individually operate their own business) with their job title as like Czar or King Guru.
    Kind of gives it a playful business type of look. Its all about the image you want to give across.

    My old business cards just had my name e-mail phone and address. THen company logo. Since I did everything for the business... i didn't decide to list all my job titles on the card.

    Our business cards have the company name in the upper right corner, the logo splashed across the card and then the name, email address and phone number on the bottom left. No titles at all and many people have commented on the professional look of the cards....

    I'd consider

    "Hosting Consultant" for the title

    a nice sales pitch. It gives the reader an important piece of information right away. As you have only a handful of seconds to catch their attention this can be important.

    TheFish gave a good suggestion: Hosting Consultant. You're a reseller. That's ok. You dont have to make it public and notorious. But don't use titles like CEO or Operations Manager. Hosting Consultant doesn't give clients the wrong idea and it's a good title. Many consultants win more money than Operations Managers.

    My 2 cents...

    Master Jedi?
    Head Wookie?
    Force Commander?
    Sith Lord?

    LOL

    But then if its a small organisation, there would not be a need for a title. A title can make you look too big or too small. Nothing is the best in this case.

    HMFIC <---- I would spell it out but most of you should know.

    Hosting consultant seems to be the best title, its attention getting yet doesnt sound snobbish

    Watch the movie American Psycho to get a grasp on what a real professional card looks like.

    Those guys are serious!

    Well, if he owns a legal reseller hosting business, he can feel free to put CEO, Owner, Founder, et cetera on his cards. If you are operating on some sort of affiliate program, then you wouldn't want to put that, but if you have a reseller webhosting account with another provider, then you certainly could. My personal cards say "Owner & Founder" on them. Cards for my staff members have their job title listed below, IE: Sales Representative, Support Technician, Finance Director, et cetera.
