Cards, Cards, Cards, Cards And More Cards.

Cards, cards, cards, cards and more cards. I just wanted to share my experience of driving a taxi for the past 4 days. There was the annual whisky festival taking place and I was on taxi duty for the 4 days and nights of the festival. I am not paid to promote this event and just want to share with you who are interested. Here is the festival link. There is another festival in autumn. http://www.spiritofspeyside.com/whisky_events.php Thursday May 3rd. People are already in the area in various campsites, guesthouses and hotels. I was driving an 8 seat minibus and was based in Dufftown. Dufftown is the heart of Whisky country, most of the distilleries are there and in the towns and countryside within a 30 mile radius. The weather was fine, sunny and warm. People were walking around the town centre and gathering information, tickets and schedules from the hub office. I was there for 2 hours watching everyone and then I got my first customers. A party of 5 people took my taxi to an event. I drove them to the venue and they paid me plus a tip. That was the start of a marathon 4 days of taxi runs. I was talking with everyone who was in my taxi. I learned about where they were from and got to know something about them. I think of them all as my friends and got to know some people very well. Now to the point of what this blog is about (if you haven’t guessed already). At the end of every run I would hand the taxi business card to every passenger. In addition to handing out cards to the passengers, cards were put into visitor centres, guest houses, pubs, hotels and venues. I wanted to share this with you to remind you just how powerful business cards are as a tool to promote your business. Friday May 4th. Many people had already booked my taxi in advance because I was based in the town centre. However, many hadn’t, but now they have our business card so they telephone and order one of the other 3 cars. Because of the business cards my taxi was on the road with passengers all day and all night. The other 3 cars were doing the same. Saturday May 5th was the same as Friday. My taxi was on the road with passengers all day and all night. Some people booked in advance and others called on the telephone. Guest house operators, venue staff and hotel staff all called with bookings. Sunday May 6th and Monday May 7th were the same. Never underestimate the power of the business card. Without business cards many people would be on the telephone to other taxi operators. Finally, Throughout the 4 days I was on time every time and had many satisfied customers. I will miss them all and look forward to many returning next year.
