Reasons to Use a MLM Car Magnet
Here are some good reasons you should use a MLM Car Magnet.
# 1: It’s a passive recruiting strategy. This is a set it and forget it strategy. Once you put the MLM Car Magnet on your vehicle there is nothing else for you to do, except follow-up with people who contact you to learn more.
# 2: It’s inexpensive. You can have a MLM Car Magnet made for about $30 to $50, depending on where you buy it from online. This is definitely inexpensive, considering you can use the car magnet as long as you are in the business.
# 3: People contact you first. It’s great having people contact you first! That is every network marketers dream. Be the hunted, not the hunter!
# 4: It’s simple to do. This lead generation strategy would pass the 8-year old test. It’s so simple, even and eight year old could do it.
Every marketer’s top priority is showing their company’s brand, name, and message to all potential customers. The more eyes on their ad the better! With magnetic car signs, your advertisement is always on the go. Your business will be seen by hundreds to thousands of people, from drivers to pedestrians and neighbors! ~ Custom Signs
Where to Buy a Car Magnet
There are several places you could purchase a car magnet or sticker to promote your MLM Business. Here are the first few places that come to mind.
# 1: Your MLM Company
Check out your back office and see what is available from your MLM Company. Some companies offer these, some don’t. If your company offers one, and you like it, and it is at a fair price, order it from your company.
# 2: Vistaprint
This is probably the best and most inexpensive places to purchase your MLM Car Magnet. Vistaprint.com always has some type of special going on. Plus, it’s easy to customize your own product, and shipping is normally fast and inexpensive.
# 3: eBay
There are more deals on eBay than you could ever imagine. Just do a quick search for “custom car magnet” and see what comes up. You can then sort your results from lowest to highest price to find the best deals first. This is my suggested place to buy your car magnet.
# 4: Your Local Print Shop
This will probably be your most expensive option, but also the most convenient. Visit your local printer or big chain office supply store and see what they have available.
Success Tips with Car Magnets
Here are some simple success tips for designing your MLM Car Magnet.
1. Keep it Simple
Keep it simple stupid! You’ve probably heard that phrase before. You don’t want your car magnet to have tons of graphics and text that is difficult to see or read.
You should use large font, a white background, no more than one picture, and as few words as possible. Looking pretty or fancy won’t get the job done. Ugly is good!
Stuffing too much information on magnets could be a deadly marketing sin. It will make your car magnet difficult to read and your prospects are less likely to read it. So, make sure to keep it simple. Just add your company’s name, phone number and an interesting tagline or artwork to pique interest. Customers will find out more about your company from search engines later on. ~ Custom Magnets Direct
2. Use a Catchy Headline
On your MLM Car Magnet, use a catchy headline.
Here are a few sample headlines.
- Burn Fat & Get Paid!
- Get Healthy & Wealthy!
- Fire Your Boss Today!
- Work from Home!
You want a headline that captivates the prospect and motivates them to take action and contact you. Keep your headline to about five words or less and make sure it is in BIG font.
3. Use a Strong Call to Action
Your MLM Car Magnet needs a strong call to action telling the prospect what to do next.
Here are a few example calls to action:
- Call Me for INFO
- Call My 24/7 Recorded Message to Learn More
- Call me for a FREE Sample
- Visit My Website for Details
If you don’t tell you prospect what to do next, they won’t do anything!
4. Get a Sizzle Number
Ideally, you want a voice mail service so people don’t call you directly. You can record a two to five-minute message that explains what you do and have interested people leave a message.
You can follow-up with people who leave a message. This prevents people from calling your home phone or cell phone 24/7.
Make sure your car magnet provides a phone number, not just an email or website. People are “more likely” to call a pre-recorded 24/7 voice-mail than they are to call you direct or go to a website.
5. Use Two or More Car Magnets
Depending upon what type of vehicle you have, I would suggest using two car magnets. If your vehicle has room for a car magnet on back, that would be enough.
If it doesn’t, I suggest you have a car magnet on your driver’s door and passenger’s door.
6. Stay Generic
Whatever you do, don’t mention the name of your MLM Company on the car magnet.
No one cares about your MLM Company! The sooner you realize that the better. Instead, use the headline, a few bullet points, a nice simple graphic, and your phone number or website.
Keep it generic. You will get more leads if you use this approach. You want to keep what you do a mystery initially, so it sparks people’s curiosity and gets them to contact you.
7. Get Your Team Doing It
Try to get everyone on your team to use a MLM Car Magnet. Have everyone start building their MLM Business locally.
Car magnets are one of the best and cheapest ways to generate local leads. A good magnet should cost you $30 to $50, maybe even less than that.
If you drive around town a lot, you should get at least three to five calls a week from it. Over the course of a year, a good MLM Car Magnet could generate several hundred leads for your business, so it will more than pay for itself.
Every serious network marketer should use a MLM Car Magnet to grow their MLM Business. It’s simple, effective, and easy to do.
It’s a passive lead generation strategy because you can do it once and keep generating leads forever. By following the advice listed above, you should be able to create a car magnet that works well for you.
