Quick Way To Boost Your Business

 

Are you looking for a quick way to boost your business and generate some phone calls or website visits? How about a car magnet? We have full color car magnets so we can get crazy with your design and really attract some attention to your driving billboard. I always recommend magnets to be placed on each side of your vehicle as well as on the back if there is room. With the car magnets being on the sides and the back, that covers you while at traffic lights, which is when they will get the most attention. After all, we really don’t want the person driving next to us with his eyes on our magnet while driving. We don’t but it will happen with our vibrantly colored graphics printed on the magnets of virtually any size. You just measure you areas and we can create a custom size for you within 1″ increments. We offer both a high gloss finish as well as a matte finish. Here’s a picture of our own car magnets:

You better believe that this will turn some heads. But please, turn them when you are stopped. Thank you.

I do want to mention a few tips on caring for your vehicle and your vehicle magnets.

  • Remove the car magnets often. Especially important with dark color vehicles and in hot climates.
  • When the magnets are removed, always store flat.
  • Never roll the magnet up while in storage.
  • If storing more than 1 magnet together, be sure to not put the magnet surfaces facing each other.
  • Only apply to clean surfaces on your vehicle.
  • Make sure the vehicle surface is dry before applying.
  • Be sure that all air pockets are out of the magnet when applied to prevent the magnet from falling off due to the wind from driving. The magnet should be completely flat against the surface.
  • Wait at least 2-3 days after applying a surface wax to vehicle before reapplying the magnets.
  • Never pull the magnet against the surface of your vehicle. Always lift directly away from the surface.
  • If a vehicle is newly painted, wait at least 90 days for the paint to completely cure before applying the magnet.
  • Routinely wipe the magnet down on both sides with a soft damp cloth to prolong the life span of the magnet.
  • Remove the magnets before entering automatic car washes (Do I really need to mention this? Yes. Believe me I do. You know who you are)
  • I recommend removing the magnets if temperatures reach 100° F or more.
  • It’s best to remove the magnet if traveling at high speeds for a long time.
Here are a few recommendations about what to print on general Car Magnets:
  • Your logo and/or business name.
  • Your phone number in large font.
  • Your website.
  • Very brief overview of products or services offered.
Of course if you want to advertise an entry level, budget friendly price on a specific service, just put the name of the service, price (very large) and a phone number. With card magnets, you don’t want to put too much information because you want people to be able to read it at a glance. With less information, you can make your contact information larger. So go ahead and give us a call today to get your full color car magnets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homemade Car Signs, NO NO NO!

 

In my line of work, marketing and advertising, I notice people’s advertising ventures a little more than theaverage person. However, there are some tactics that anyone would notice and just laugh. For instance, if you use a piece of cardboard, a marker, and tape to create a car sign, the first impression that you are creating is down in the basement. In addition, if you are going to use paint and paint a sign on your van, at least make sure your spelling is correct. Take a look at the two pictures below and let me know what your first impression would be if you saw this out on the street. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be picking up your phone to get a quote. I’m a huge advocate of car signs to advertise your business. Magnetic car signs are one of the most effective and cheapest forms of advertising your business. Plus, magnetic car signs can be changed out frequently to market various products. It’s always a great idea to have multiple variations of your car signs in order to keep it fresh and change it up. If you think about it, on your normal daily route, you will likely pass many of the same vehicles, so rotating your signs out frequently is great way to capture the attention of others. Homemade car signs are a definite taboo and is very detrimental to your business. When I see people marketing their business with means such as this, it makes me want to talk to them like a baby or a dog and say, “NO NO.” Now the irony is that these two businesses are getting some national attention now because of this blog, but the unfortunate thing is that due to their damaging marketing strategies, they most likely aren’t in business anymore. If you want to protect your business use only professionally designed marketing products. If you want to increase your sales and work on your branding, just let me know.

Killer Gas Prices – Try Promotional Tire Gauges

 

With gas at over $4.00 a gallon, all industries and individuals are feeling the crunch in their wallet.  We can’t really do anything on an individual basis to lower the price of gas; however, we can each do our part to save gas.  Studies show that under-inflated tires cause any vehicle to use more gas.  More specifically, automobiles use up to 10% more gas with improperly inflated tires.  That translates to about 2 gallons of gas with each fill up.  So at $4.00 a gallon, I’m talking about $8.00 every week or so.  I, myself, would rather save that eight bucks and spend it on something fun. 

Promotional Tire Gauges are a great promotional itemto help your clients save gas.  You will also be doing your part to help the Earth and be Eco-Friendly.  Accutire brand Tire Gauges are good high quality products that gives you accurate readings and last for years.  You can keep your business logo in front of your customer for years.  Choose from the Standard Chrome Tire Gauge, a Pistol Grip Digital Tire Gauge, a Key Chain Tire Gauge, or a Mechanic’s Grade Tire Gauge.  All will save you money if used regularly to monitor your tires and keep them properly inflated.
