Useful Magnets as Promo Products
Magnets are useful to everyone, and they can be used in so many different ways. In this post we discuss some of the ways that brands can use magnets as promotional products and can ensure that they will get used 90% of the time.
Providing magnets to your customers that are more than just advertising has many benefits. You are providing something of value to them, but also helping to keep your brand top of mind.
Calendars printed on smaller size magnets are a great way to take advantage of promotional magnets. They are useful for everyone, which means they will get used in a location where they will be seen often. To take it a step further, you could include a washable marker with the calendar so people can circle important dates. Leaving some extra white space at the bottom of the calendar will allow them to add little notes, which makes them even more convenient.
People love sports, especially your local teams. Whether it is a local professional team, college team, or even your local high school team, many people follow them. Sports schedules on magnets are another popular promotional use of printed magnets. You can take it a step further and make them even better. One thing that can be a nice addition that you do not see all of the time is color coding the home and away games. This makes it easy to take a quick look and know if it is a local game that you can get tickets for.
Another little tool that can be helpful for anyone is a little magnetic appointment reminder magnet. This could be given away with a washable marker, and imprinted with your business info. It should have little boxes underneath where people can add their appointments, and then wipe them off when they are done.
This one is similar to the appointment reminder magnet, but rather than for appointments, it can be a to-do list. This should be a bright colored magnet so they stand out to help remind them to look when they go by. It should have some lines on it where anyone can write in the important things that they need to do. Parents can use this for chores, to remember bills, school events, and anything else that may be forgotten if not noted.
Emergency Phone Numbers
If your business is a local business you can print magnets that have local emergency phone numbers on them. This can be very helpful to people, especially those with younger kids. Even if your business is not local this can still be done, instead of including the numbers you would just have the names of each emergency contact so they can write their own local numbers in.
A problem that people have all of the time is misplacing pens and not being able to find a pen when they really need it. I know that this happens to me all of the time, especially in the kitchen when I need one the most. Having a nice magnet that has a pen holder attached to it is a great way to provide value to your customers. Providing value is key, and they will see it much more often than a regular magnet. A strong magnet will easily hold a light metal pen, so making people aware of this trick will make their magnet even more useful.
