Stop spam with your business card

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 4-Sep-2007 22:35

Since the Unsolicited Electronics Message Act 2007 is coming into effect here in New Zealand, I thought we are in need of an update of an old practice.

Do you know when you go to a conference and there are all those "Place your business card in this jar to be in to win [insert your product here]"? Yes, we've seen these around a lot.

I want to be in the draw, but I don't want to be contacted later for anything else but to be told I won something!

So I thought we could add this line to the bottom of our business cards:

[x] Please do not contact me with additional information about your products or services

And with this simple line we clearly opt out of such communications. I wonder how many companies would be happy with this?
