Ask Lisa – I recently attended a live event and received a lot of business cards. Is it ok for me to add them to my email list?

Q: I recently attended a live event and received a lot of business cards. Is it ok for me to add them to my email list?

A: Absolutely NOT! While I do gather business cards at events, I Lisa Larter Business Cardsnever ever add them to my list without getting permission first. My rule of thumb is to return home, add them into my address book, send a “thank you for connecting” email and ASK THEM if they would like to receive my newsletter. Remember, a little professional courtesy goes a long way. And, adding people to your list without permission will get you in some big trouble!
