Are Your Business Cards Ready for a New Trade Show Season?

January 2nd has to be one of the toughest days on the calendar.  It’s the day that the cold reality starts to hit us that the holiday season is over.  With heavy hearts we start taking down the holiday decorations, take the tree to be recycled and start heading back to work knowing it will be months before our summer vacation.

For some, January 2nd can also give us another cold dose of reality.  The ship date for the first trade show of 2015 is just weeks away, and you’re a little afraid to break open those crates to see what survived the last show.

Business Card MagnetChances are the big booth items – graphics, structure and design – survived and are ready to go without too much effort.  But what about the marketing collateral?  Sure, you’re ready to print new handouts, and the trade show giveaways might need to be reordered, but what about your business cards?  When was the last time you looked at your business cards with a fresh eye?  Now is the perfect time to upgrade this important networking tool.

Sure, you can look at revising graphics and layout, but one of the simplest (and most effective) upgrades could be what your business card is printed on.  Why print a great new design on the same-old paper card when magnetic business cards are a superior option.   (more…)

5 Reasons Why Mail Isn’t This Guy

Magnetic Attractions recently returned from a little trip to Boston. No it wasn’t for the history or fall foliage, but rather to exhibit our magnets and magnetic mailers at the 2011 Direct Marketing Show. I’m not afraid to admit that I was a little worried about this show.  With this show geared toward digital marketing, I worried attendees might mistakenly view us as the big guy to your left.  

Then the show started, and I worred for nothing.  Sure search, mobile and social media were the hot topics driving the bus, but we still had plenty of traffic getting off at our booth.  They used direct mail because they had success with direct mail.  Here’s just a few reasons why.  I call them:

5 Reasons Mail & Magnets Can Thrive in the Digital Age

  1. $47.8 Billion will be spent on direct mail by businesses in 2011
  2. 52.4% of consumers read direct mail from merchants & 53% found direct mail useful
  3. 98% of consumers bring their mail in the day it’s delivered & 77% sort through it immediately
  4. 79% of households read, or at least skim advertising received in the mail. (Only about 19% of commercial emails are even opened)
  5. 51% of consumers read postcards delivered by mail
  6. Our BigMags historically have an average response rate between 8% – 11%.
  7. Adding a magnet to a postcard increases readership by 52% compared to postcards without magnets
  8. Magnets increase response rates by over 73%

OK.  I can’t count, but you get the idea.  Direct mail still delivers results and can live a long, healthy life (especially when working alongside a digital strategy).  Of course, add a magnet to the mail and really see results really take off.  Why not give it a try and see for yourself.

Magnets – The Perfect Prescription for Urgent Care Marketing

First Aid Kit with MoneyA blog posting I recently read from Urgent Care Marketing entitled “Evaluate & Purchase Paid Advertising” stressed how advertising recall is crucial for urgent care centers to grow revenues. While a good read, it missed the one marketing solution best suited for their specialty, the promotional magnet and magnetic mailer.

According to the author, urgent care centers face a daily challenge – there’s no predicting when people will get sick and need their services. Centers need to advertise to get their name out.  BUT, unlike other businesses that can send out advertising and see immediate results, urgent care centers could wait weeks or months for an ad to generate prospective patients.  Therefore, it is important  that potential patients be exposed to your ad message as much as possible.

Food for Thought

The statistics are daunting – surveys have shown that anywhere from 60% to 90% of new restaurants fail in their first year. And in these difficult economic times, when consumers are cutting back on dining out to save money, the odds against opening a successful eatery have never been greater.

Still, thousands of new restaurants pop up every year. What separates the winners from the losers? The quality of the food and service are primary factors; but how many times have you fallen in love with a neighborhood bistro or a new pizza place, only to be shocked when they close their doors? Clearly, there’s more to running a restaurant than serving tasty entrees. (more…)
