Photography is a very competitive business with many great photographers all going after the same clients. Often, the contracts go to the photographers whom not only know how to shoot, but who also know how to stand out and get noticed. A simple way to be remembered is to leave the client with something that contains your branding. One item that I currently use is a branded pen / USB combination. My supplier is USB Memory Direct. I like the pen / USB combo because it is a useful item that won't just be trashed at the end of the day. I use these to deliver back up images, small sample portfolios, bio info, etc..... Getting noticed is the start, being remembered is the road to being hired when the right job comes along. Leave something behind.
