Why Are School Magnets So Popular?
Schools (with the help of the PTA and PTO) are one of our largest categories of sales. But we also make magnets for Little League Baseball, Youth Football magnets, Youth Soccer magnets and almost every other sport.
If you are on the fundraising committee of any of these, you know that custom car magnets are an amazing way to raise money for your group. In fact, I’d be willing to wager that a car magnet fundraiser is easier and more lucrative than any other merchandise fundraiser.
More and more schools and youth teams are selling their magnets for $10 each, and they are not running into any pricing resistance. The reason for this, I think, is that the parents realize that the $10 is going towards their children’s school or sports team. It’s as though they were donating $10 and receiving the magnet as a Thank You Gift as opposed to just buying a magnet.
Even the smallest school or team can sell 50 magnets, and if you use the $10 price you will earn a profit of just under $300 even after you have paid for the magnets.
But most schools and teams order and sell much more than that. Our average order size for the past 6 months is 390 magnets, meaning that most groups are ordering between 300 and 1,000 magnets.
Even if it takes a full year to sell out (remember, our magnets do not have a limited shelf life as opposed to those over-sized chocolate bars that you probably still sell) you’ll still make well over $4,000 if you had ordered 500 magnets.
But other than money, there is a very important reason to sell custom car magnets to your parents.
Do It For The Kids
Look at it from your kids point of view. Let’s say that your son or daughter is on your local youth soccer team. We’ll call their soccer team the “Thunder”. We will also assume that you made an informed decision and chose ARC Marketing to design and print your magnets. Because you chose us, your magnet was designed as though the Thunder were a professional sports team (all of our designers have experience working with the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAA and more; so we know how to design a killer magnet!).
So you put a Thunder magnet on the back of both of your cars. What does your son or daughter feel like whenever they get into the car, or even see the car in your garage? They feel like a Soccer God (or Goddess). That magnet reaffirms their love of the sport and justifies the long hours of practice, the long drives to matches and all the lost time with their PlayStation.
It makes your kids feel good.
And isn’t that the point of being a parent?
