Stop traffic with your book

car magnetYou could let your car do some of your book marketing for you by getting a car door magnet with your book on it.It’s a bit like driving with your business card constantly on display.

Vistaprint do them at a very reasonable price and I’m sure a Google search will provide many other suitable suppliers. In the UK you can get one car door magnet (A4 size) for free if you’re happy with the designs they suggest or you can upload a picture and fully customise your magnet for ยฃ6.44 for one magnet. In the US I couldn’t find the free one, the price for a fully customisable magnet is $9.99 .

Not a lot of money in either case, considering this magnet will travel with you wherever you go, showing people your book cover in full colour and where you can buy it.

Keep the message simple, not a lot of text, just a web address ideally or the book shop you mainly want to send people to buy your book.

The magnet will be a talking point when you pick up friends or drop off kids at sports practice.

And if you’re not sure which side of the car the magnet to place on, simply get 2, one for each side. ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: I’m not affiliated with Vistaprint, but they do have good offers that I thought I’d share here and I have used them in the past and would recommend them.

    This is good advice! We have used large, car door magnets to promote our Apple computer support business here in Santa Barbara and Vista Print had the best deals on those. They do business card magnets too and we attach those to our vehicles so wherever you park, people can grab a card. Great idea and very solid advice!

  2. This is an interesting idea. I’ve ordered my business cards through Vistaprint and am happy with their quality, but I’ve never thought of using their car door magnets to do book promotion. Of course, I’m not sure I’m ready for that step yet, either, but when I am, it’s something to consider. Thanks for this!

    • You’re welcome. My plan is to provide all sorts of ideas that people can choose from when they’re ready. Bit like a take away menu. And if people want help with any of it then I’m here, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is a great idea for book marketing and easy for anyone to do. Thanks.
