It's no secret we think calendar magnets are among the best ways to market your services. They're inexpensive, high quality and are unmatched in their marketing shelf life. But if you're new to using them as client gifts, you may be wondering where to start. So here are some of our top recommendations for how to get the most out of your calendars in your next marketing campaign.
1. Send them in the mail
This one may be obvious, but in case you didn't know, snail mail is one of the most popular and effective methods used by business professionals to distribute their promotional items. Plus, you can even target specific demographics such as average household income and property value when you use our full mailing services.
2. Add GiftNotes™
Every gift needs a card! Our personalized GiftNotes™ are your chance to introduce yourself to your recipients and explain that these calendars aren't just an ad, they're a special gift just for them. By offering a glimpse into your personality, you're opening the door to emotional connections that can lead to meaningful - and lucrative - relationships down the road.
3. Include a coupon code
There's a lot of ways to track the success of your mailings, but a simple way is by creating a discount code for one of your services or products. It'll incentivize recipients to hold onto your mailing and go check out what you have to offer. Then whenever that code gets redeemed, you can see exactly how many leads and sales you were able to generate from your mailing.
4. Do a calendar exchange
If you've used calendar magnets in the past, encourage clients to bring in last year's calendars to exchange them for a new one and then use that opportunity to catch up and strengthen your relationships. Try including a small extra gift like a custom pen or key ring to say thank you for making the effort to come see you.
5. Give extra calendars for clients to share
A past client is an excellent source for getting new leads. So, by sending them a few extra calendars, there's a good chance they'll pass them along to their friends and family.
6. Put them in high traffic areas
Coffee shops, restaurants, office waiting rooms, venues, these are all places that get a lot of traffic, and it's not unusual for them to have a little table or bulletin board for people to leave advertisements. By getting permission to leave some of your calendars, you can get a ton of new eyes on them and greatly expand your reach.
7. Hand them out at events
Not only are events like fundraisers, trade shows, or school sporting events great for getting involved in your community, but they're a prime opportunity to hand out your promotional gifts. You'll have a chance to meet potential leads face-to-face, and your presence at these events will get noticed and show how much you care about your neighbors.
8. Donate leftover calendars
Even if it's well into the year, calendars are still valuable. Instead of throwing leftovers away, small offices, charities, and nursing homes often appreciate these sorts of donations. Plus, you never know who they might reach!
These are just a few of the many ways to use custom magnetic calendars to promote your business, and all these methods work just as well for any other of our appreciation gifts.

Marketing your business with magnetic gifts is one of the most cost-effective and proven ways to get referrals, expand your reach, and grow your business.
Things like Magnetic Calendars, Sports Schedules, Household Reference Magnets, and countless other products work because they're things your clients will find useful. They'll go up on the fridge, and since your business information is printed front and center, your brand will get multiple impressions a day, every day.
If you're looking for a way to achieve your professional goals or are on the fence as to why you should be using magnetic gifts in your marketing plan, whether you're in real estate, finance, healthcare, or a small business owner, we've got you covered.
One of the most popular ways to use magnetic marketing products is by mailing them (that's right, snail mail) directly to your desired farming area. Calendar magnets, football magnets, tips for the household magnets are just a few of the many client gifts you can stick in an envelope and put in the mail.
"Hold on. Isn't direct mail a little… dated?" you may be wondering. Not so!
Direct mail continues to be one of the most popular and effective forms of advertising today and shows no signs of slowing down. With so many devices and apps to cycle through daily, digital fatigue is very real and the constant ads become easy to ignore; a little break from the noise is more than welcome.
Plus, many people say they like real mail because it feels more personal, and because of that they are more likely to open it. In fact, many even look forward to getting mail!
They're permanent business cards.
Think about all the business cards you've gotten in the past. How many do you still have and where are they? Chances are they went straight to your wallet or purse where they sat until that fateful day when they made their journey to the trash.
Now, how many magnets do you have on your fridge? How long have they been there? Are any of them promotional? Exactly.
The point is everybody loves magnets. Regardless of how they got them or where they came from, everybody uses the magnets they have. So why not make sure those are your magnets up on the fridge?
By sending your clients magnets that feature your business information, you are ensuring that your info will stay visible and that your recipients will never forget where they came from. Then in the future when they find themselves in need of your services, they’ll know exactly how to reach you.
They get seen every day.
If there's one thing that every house has in common, It's a refrigerator. And if there's one thing that's going to be seen every day, it's the fridge. In fact, chances are that there's going to be several glances made at that fridge throughout the day, and if your custom printed contact information is on display, then your brand is going to make an impression with every single glance.
Take that number of impressions, combine them with every member of the household and multiply that by 365; now that's what top-of-mind is all about!
"Know anyone who can help me sell my house?"
"Yes! Let me grab their number off my fridge."
Let's talk about return on investment (ROI). It simply cannot be overstated just how much bang your marketing dollars will get for your buck with magnetic marketing products. Say you buy and mail 500 sport magnets for $300. Even if you only sell one house from that campaign, you're still coming out thousands (that’s thousands with an S) of dollars ahead! That’s a pretty significant profit ratio.
Now think about the average cost of billboards, commercials, radio, newspapers, or magazine ads. What are the chances your message even reaches your audience? To think that you could put that much effort into an ad and spend all that money only for your efforts to fall flat would be a sad thing indeed.
So, what makes more sense: spending thousands of dollars on ads that might never get as much as a glance? Or spending $100 on 100 magnets for 100 different homes that you know will get seen every day by every member of the household? It’s a no brainer.
As you can see, the benefits of using custom marketing magnets are significant and should make a strong case for why you should be using them to advertise your business. They're easy to send, have a long marketing shelf life, stay highly visible, and are some of the most affordable marketing items around. So, if you are ready to try something new and see some real profits from your ad spend, reach out and speak to one of our Customer Care Specialists today. Let us help set you up for success.
With so many buyers and sellers right now, it's important to get as many listings in your inventory as possible, and one of the best ways to do that is by mailing personalized magnetic gifts. Magnetic calendars, sports schedules, and custom fridge magnets are such effective marketing tools because they’re things that your past and potential clients will find useful.
These gifts will go straight up on their fridges, and since your business information is printed directly on the magnet, your recipients will be reminded of your services, how to reach you, and where to send referrals each time they pass by.

Custom Pizza Cutters with Logo
Nearly everyone eats pizza! A crowd-pleasing favorite from childhood on up, pizza is the party food that brings people together to create memorable moments. This translates into the perfect opportunity to put relationship marketing to work for you!
Brand awareness is a key component to ensuring customers remember your business, organization, or services. Therefore, custom pizza cutters with your logo are a brilliant solution. Not only do these everyday kitchen tools fill an existing need, they’re also fun, functional, and effective at getting your message across.
Types of Pizza Cutters
There are several types of pizza cutters you can personalize for your business marketing or organization events.
Pizza Slicer Wheels
Pizza slicer wheels are the most common type of cutter for slicing pies. They are comprised of a wheel-bladed knife and a handle. Sometimes also called a roller blade, the handle on these kitchen utensils provides optimal space to add customization for your business, organization, or sports team.
Mezzaluna (Rocking Pizza Cutter or Pizza Blade)
Another option for slicing pizza is a pizza cutter rocker, also known as a mezzaluna or pizza blade. This style of cutter is designed to cut through an entire pizza in a single cut. Rather than incorporating a wheel into the design, pizza rockers or rocking knives, consist of a long, rounded stationary blade with a handle on each end.
Scissor Style Cutters
A scissor pizza cutter is used to cut both pizzas and quesadillas. Shaped similarly to a pair of scissors, these kitchen tools are shaped slightly different than scissors used to cut paper. Typically, the handles on scissor style cutters are elevated above the blades to keep hands free of the pizza when cutting. The top blade may also be oversized, as with the original design by American inventor Roger Brown, to double as a serving tool.
Where to Buy Promotional Pizza Cutters
LifeLong Gifts™ sells fully personalized pizza cutters with your logo and contact information. We offer beautiful, laser engraved, stainless steel pizza cutters with serving tongs. Alternately, you can also purchase our innovative pizza wheels from Magnets USA®. These can be customized with full-color photos and business information.
