Refrigerator magnets

Let's face it, most customers don't keep our business cards, some will put our number in their phone book, some will just go back to the Internet when they need their next service, magnets used to be a very good media to keep customers, how about now ? Who still use them and how's the ROI on them ?

Love them!

I have cleaned for former customers that still had the card on the fridge and even cleaned for new customers that already had the card from a friend.

My favorite method is to attach about a dozen to the side of the van when I am cleaning in a high traffic area. People always take a few with them.

Good idea Mil. I haven't used them in a while DP. I bought some from vista print but wasn't impressed with the gauge. I feel the gauge should be thick enough for the customer stick a few things to the fridge with it. What I did like was that the magnet had my biz card with a calendar.

I also bought a stack of biz card magnets that you stuck your biz card to it.

Thickness does matter, you want a thick magnet so that it sticks and doesn't curl up easily.

I got mine from ???? (I don't remember actually) as part of a door knob hanger. I'll look them up if you desire, but the point being that they were really thick and have performed well.

The caveat to that is that you still need a paper cardstock business card. Nobody wants to stick a magnetic card in their wallet and destroy their credit cards in the process. Shocked

The only magnets I've ever had are the ones that you buy that you stick your business card on, but have always like the idea of them, more chance they will be around when a customer needs service than just a card. The only problem now days, it most of my customers have Stainless appliances that mags don't stick to, unless there's access to the side which is still steel.

I like the van type Royal posted above^, they look nice. wink

I have magnets made up from my business card. I got them made at FedEx Office and I leave them on all the fridges in every vacant home that I clean. They are not fancy, just a replica of my business card.
