    Having just bought an established business, I am trying to put my first ever marketing package together.

    The standard format for any business card typically includes your name and occupation. When you have a small 3 man operation what do you generally put down as your occupation ?

    Is it:-

    John Doe -- Owner
    John Doe -- CEO
    John Doe -- Owner/Operator
    John Doe -- Founder
    John Doe -- President

    or none of the above ?

    Thanks

    Owner.

    Some of the titles are for corporations, the others are just corny.

    Owner or no title.
     
  3. I used to put "owner"....Now I am "general manager"......

    Maybe it is corny but it applies really well to me. I don't like to tell people that I am the owner......I would rather have a little privacy.....

    I was thinking about the title "Generalissimo for Life", but ultimately decided on no title. :D

    FWIW,
    I put down I speak English, list my insurance coverage, and the years as a resident of the state. And, the phone number should be the largest thing on the card, after all, that's all that matters ;)

    My title on business card reads: Robert Payer (Landscaper)

    In my opinion this is humble and shows pride in trade.

    Second pick would be: General Manager
