    Get A Business Card Made For MD, Prospecting, Etc.

    I had some very simple business cards made with my name, address and phone number on the front, and the Basic Ten Commandments for MD'ing on the back....you will be surprised how impressed the person will be when you identify yourself, consider you to be responsible, and more than likely give you permission to prospect their property....SushiDog

    That is a great idea. What are your ten commandments that you have printed on the back?

    You can find the Ten Commandments, as well as Gold Facts at the bottom of the page on this website:
    http://www.quartzsitemetaldetectingclub.com/
    The second to last information block from the bottom of the page will be Gold Facts, and the last information block will be the Ten Commandments....I think the Gold Facts info will be appreciated by a lot of people as well because I have heard many questions in several posts with respect to this info....
    I believe what this "business card" does is make the property owner very comfortable because they have your name, address and phone number if you have done something wrong....and oh yeah, I forgot to put my email address on the original cards, and this would be a great piece of info as well...
    There are many other spin-off's as well....if someone has a family member that has lost something, they will call you...I am glad this post has helped someone like yourself, and that's what this is all about, right? Enjoy!....SushiDog

    I like the business card idea, and am going to print some.
    The "10 commandments" have a few to many "thou shalts's" in it, so I will find an alternative.
    Great idea!

    Yeah! Make the card unique to suit you the best....this will be your "key" to unlocking a lot of previous skeptical property owners....I believe you can make some very inexpensive cards at a Kinko store if one is nearby....Also! I will tell you what else I do if I want to search a place in public....I bought a white construction hard hat (white color signifies a supervisor or someone more important than a different color hard hat), and along the left and right sides of the hard hat (which would be directly over your ears while wearing it), I put some small decals on it with numbers and letters making it look I was associated with some government agency....and then I wear an orange construction vest....people don't even come up to me and ask me what I am doing because when they see these goofy numbers and letters in black on the side of my hard hat, they just assume I am from a local, state or federal agency....I came up with this idea of putting on black letters and numbers when I saw some construction guys wearing the name of the company on the side of their hard hat....trust me, this works like a charm!....I wish you well my friend....SushiDog

    I found out I have a printing program that came with my computer that will print business cards. I didn't even know I had it! My son who is an IT pro showed it to me recently. He says I am electronicaly challenged. Monty

    I tried the biz cards about 20 years ago. Not too productive then. I did find out though, the "soft" sell worked good. That is to say, instead of opening with a card, close the conversation with a card. "Give me a call". "Let me know if I can help (find that ring)". Etc. TTC

    Wow! Where on the Internet did you get such a deal on the business cards? Things have changed over the past 20 years, and when you can identify yourself with a business card and other form of I.D., it really makes a difference to the property owner, but to each his own....SushiDog

    I found that a lot of people are suspicious of your intentions. most of the time I wind up telling them "I'm not here to sell you anything" then they start to loosen up

    I will Google the "free business cards" and I will also Google "$3.99 business cards" and see what happens....if I come up with a place that seems reputable, I will post it here....perhaps this will not work for me because I have both sides printed which costs a little more....it's been a long time since I had cards printed at Kinko's, but will post any deal that I find here....SushiDog
