Make a Lasting Impression with Magnets

September 23, 2013

Make a Lasting Impression with Magnets As businesses get creative in their marketing strategies, they are using magnets to promote themselves. You can make a long-lasting impression by handing out a magnetic business card or branded calendar. These can be put on refrigerators, filing cabinets, magnetic white boards, or any other magnetic surface. This ensures that your information is constantly visible. The more your recipients see your information the more they will remember you. Another clever way to use magnets for your business is to simply adhere a small one to the end of a printed piece. For example, a printed postcard with coupons or a calendar of upcoming events at your location.

Here are some things to remember:

  1. Make sure your magnet is eye-catching, has your contact information and what you do.
  2. Get creative with your design. Instead of a 12-month calendar, try the schedule of a local sports team or upcoming special events.
  3. You can mail out a save-the-date magnet for a grand opening or a map with all your locations.
  4. Don't limit yourself to mailing your magnets - hand them out at events.
  5. Don't forget about car magnets!

There are many other uses for magnets outside of promoting your business. Are you planning a wedding, sweet 16 or graduation? Send out a customized magnet save-the-date. If you want to make a lasting impression on your guests, make your party invitation a magnet. Magnets are also great for baby announcements, family photo Christmas cards or even as a framed photo from your recent vacation. Create your own bumper stickers or show off your child’s sport or activity with a car magnet. A decal is messy and fades, but a magnet is easy to remove and is more durable.

Here’s a fun idea for using magnets. Turn your refrigerator into a cool photo collage. Print your InstaGram, Facebook or other pictures on magnets and arrange them in strips, collages, or fun shapes on your refrigerator or other magnetic surface. It’s a fun way to show off your pets, kids, family or friends. They can also be used to hold those precious drawings. You can even use the photo magnets to create a frame for them. The sky’s the limit, so use your imagination and start creating with magnets.
