EDIT: Business Card Samples
Edited business card ideas. I still like the first one more, but I've known some companies who have a few different card images. M'eh.

Business Card 1

Business Card 2

Got more ink for my printer. :) I'll just be printing 100 myself, to start. Once I get an actual website up and going, I'm going to add some stuff to the card anyway, so no point in printing up too many if I am just going to be making changes. Right now I just want to get *something* out there, to start gathering some more clientele. Having an actual facility to work in would be nice as well, instead of my home backyard. O___o

Just an idea: get yourself a proper domain registered. It's only a few $$$ per year but helps create a much more professional impression.

A 'business' that has AOL Hotmail or Gmail as their email-addy just looks like someone-working-out-of-their-back-bedroom. Having "training@jforcerotts.com" as your contact would appear vastly more professional. Remember that the cost of running a domain is a valid business-expense so is 100% tax-deductible. It therefore 'costs' you nothing!

I need help creating a website... :( And someone with a credit card, cos I no longer have one to be able to buy a domain with. I am hoping to get one up eventually, just in the meantime that email is all I have. I think I'll just take it out of the card entirely.

Also kind of self conscious, since I don't have an actual facility to train in, so as far as location goes I wouldn't exactly call it professional... Technically I am working out of my home kitchen, and backyard. O___o I don't have money to rent a space right now... so this is all on-the-side stuff, and not a legit business - yet. I want to make it into one sometime in the future, when I have more money and a better place to work out of.

Since you said you need more ink, I assume you're thinking of printing these yourself.

I know they're business cards, but they're very dark so you'll not be on the cheap side of ink usage. It may be cheaper to have a local shop make up cards instead. I know that Gideon used to print his own CD inserts, but then it turned out to be about 50% less to just have a print shop do it. Just a thought. :)

Also: BARK.

Yeah, I'm printing them myself, for now... because it's really only cheap to get like 500 cards printed up... and I don't want that many right now, because of changes that I will have to eventually make to the cards, and then they'll all need to be printed out again. I've run into that problem before, when I went to a shop that made up a bunch of cards for my www.jessie-t-wolf.com website, that never actually got up and running in the end. O___o

If I can just print out and put out 100 cards to start with, I'll be happy. I know that word of mouth is invaluable when it comes to dog training businesses.

Thanks for the advice. :) It's good to see you. ^^ *huggles*

I would recomend taking Rottweilers out of the title if you are also advertising that you do all breeds.


-all breed puppy & basic...

I suppose. Though I am honestly trying to attract more customers with Rotts and other large breeds, (Dobes, GSD, Mastiffs, Bull breeds etc.) but I don't want people to think I won't accept small breeds either. I want my niche to be large, protection breeds. I'm also hoping to run a breeding kennel in the future, and raise working line Rotts. I guess I'll take 'ROTTWEILERS' out of the name for now, though.
