Custom Magnets and Stickers Replace Business Cards

Service and repair businesses need to promote themselves

If you’re over 30, you remember the days of business cards. Most homeowners had a designated “junk drawer” with a stash of business cards near the front. When the water heater went out or the garage door was on the fritz, it was time to rifle through the cards to call for help.

We know you’ve learned the importance of digital marketing, Google business listings, and customer testimonials to guide clients to your business. However, we recommend that all service and repair companies also promote themselves with custom stickers and magnets.

Why use custom stickers and magnets for service/repair business promotion?

It is important (for all business owners) to advertise online with the goal of gaining new customers, but it’s equally or more important to retain the customers you’ve already worked so hard to bring in!

How can you effectively retain your current clients?

Stickers and magnets are an ideal replacement for business cards. To illustrate my point, I’ll share a personal experience.

Two years ago, my garage door had a broken spring. I grabbed my phone, and by a stroke of luck, I was able to find the service person who installed my garage door originally. He arrived quickly, repaired my garage door, and handed me his business card. I fully intended to hire him again; he did great work, offered fair prices, and remembered me well.

I failed to keep his business card or add his contact info to my phone.

The next time my garage door acted up, didn’t get so lucky online and had to hire a different company. While they did the repairs, they charged more, and the interaction didn’t feel as friendly or personal.

If my original garage door installer had placed a custom-made sticker on the garage door interior that included his contact information – he would’ve retained a customer and I could have saved time and money.

Most service and repair business owners are likely to have many customers who won’t be able to remember their name without a reminder. Every time you complete a repair, hand the client your business card, and let them know that you’ve also placed a sticker in a discreet place directly on the equipment you’ve just repaired or serviced.

Custom magnets work just as well if you’re working on anything metal—and can also be placed on a customer’s refrigerator.

The goal is to have your information placed right where they can find it. Don’t let them be like me, using my phone to blindly search “garage door repair near me,” fingers crossed that I’d find the repair company I was looking for.

When your company offers fair prices and excellent service, your customers want to rely on you again and again. Make it easy for them by leaving a visible reminder of just who it was who arrived to help them out last time.

Custom Magnets for Whiteboards

For many American families, the kitchen is the heart of the house. It’s where we gather together to begin our days, have family meetings, work on homework, and check emails while we try not to burn dinner.

If your family is like ours, it’s hectic. Between balancing work and school schedules, extra-curricular activities, and social events, it can get overwhelming.

If you would like a clear, easy-to-read system for managing your family’s busy schedule using customized whiteboard magnets, today’s article is for you!

We especially like this style of calendar for families with young children. While a digital calendar can work well for teens, younger children will benefit from being able to see what’s happening by simply glancing up at the calendar you’ve created.

Your Whiteboard is Now Your Command Center

Prepare for each week by creating that week’s calendar on the whiteboard. By limiting this calendar to one week at a time, you’ll be able to prepare mentally as you write it out, and your children won’t be overwhelmed by trying to comprehend a long span of time. Weeks make much more tangible sense to young children than months!

Each Family Member Needs At Least One Custom Magnet

Normally we recommend 3 customized magnets per person, but you may be able to squeak by with 1 per family member. By placing a person’s magnet strategically on the whiteboard, you can draw attention to where they will be during the day.

Create Custom Magnets for Special Events and Activities

Is your little one attending art class, participating in sports, or heading to the dentist? A custom magnet is a perfect way to illustrate the day. For special events like birthdays, holidays, and vacations, magnets can help build anticipation even as they help a child visualize the wait in bite-sized increments. The result may be improved patience and a clearer sense of time passing.

Chores Are Easy to Assign with Custom Magnets

Are you tired of reminding your children of their chores? Design a magnet to represent each chore that’s appropriate for them. From setting the table and unloading the dishwasher to dusting and sweeping, a magnet is a reminder of their responsibility.

By rewarding your children for following their chore magnet independently (we suggest Blue Bee custom printed stickers because kids just love them), you’ll soon find them eager to help without your reminders.

Themed Custom Magnets for Each Month

To make your whiteboard feel a bit more special, you can design a larger magnet for each month. Young children will benefit from associating each month’s name with seasonal themes, and your command center will feel more decorative. In fact, we daresay it’s downright fun to put up a beautiful new month’s magnet!

Young children love to learn as they help you, so take the opportunity to talk about the month’s name and seasonal associations as you prepare the first week of the month.

If you’d like assistance designing custom magnets for your family’s command center whiteboard, please contact us directly. We look forward to helping you create a system that will streamline your busy schedule.
