3 Tips to maintain your Car Door Magnets

Car Door Magnets

:Tip: Remove your car door magnets every week and wash with a gentle soap .

I know some of my fellow business owners, and the customers I have supplied magnets for, forget sometimes that although yes using removal magnets for vehicle advertising is a cheap and effective form of advertising however there is there is a major pitfall that no one tells you about, THEY BREAKDOWN AND MELT TO YOUR VEHICLE!!!

So I'm going to tell you a couple ways to avoid it.

Firstly and the most effective way to avoid the breakdown of your door Magnets is to remove the magnets weekly preferably but no longer than every two week and wash the magnets with a light soapy water.  (dishwashing liquid is fine to use on your vehicle)

Secondly put some vinyl wrap behind the magnet (magnet will still work)to stop it from sticking to the car as the magnet breaks down, however although effective you should still pull it off
regularly to make sure there is no discolouration on the paint surface especially during wet
weather, if some water gets trapped behind the sign it will boil on the car and can sometimes stain the paint.

And thirdly my favourite way is if you know exactly where the sign is staying lay some quality vinyl (use Brands Such as 3M and Avery) down onto the car it will protect the painted surface and you can remove it without damaging the paint at all.  I recommend watching a Youtube video on how to lay down the vinyl without causing bubbles or employ an experienced installer, my business charges approx $20 for installation.

I hope you have enjoyed this TIP - Car Door Magnets

Window Tinting Not Just for Cars
Lisa Warner heard far too many horror stories from her partner Truman's workplace, that she decided to start their own Window Tinting business with the main focus on customer service and integrity, something she felt was truly lacking in other tint shops. 
 While pregnant with their first Child and being ordered to bed rest, Lisa used this time to research the market, find the best film suppliers and come up with the all important name Trublutint, named to represent her partner Truman, his favourite colour blue and of course what they did. 
The business began primarily marketing to car owners but soon shifted to include homes and commerical propeties, with many add-on services included in the business structure. 

“I wanted to make Trublutint the go to business for all things Window Tinting and After-market for your car, I am incredibly proud of the business we have built and cannot wait to see what the next 5 years is going to bring us.  Hardwork, sweat and some tears has certainly played a major roll in our business as we maintained our intregrity throughout the years“  - Lisa Warner, Owner Trublutint

A standard sedan Window Tint costs between $249-$449, there is no "standard" sized home however prices from $59 a square meter. 
Please contact: Lisa Warner for Further information.

Lisa and her 6 week Business challenge

For the last few years I have been an eager reader of the Ausmumpreneurnetwork newsletter and just recently I joined their 6 week challenge, this is very daunting to me as the word blog is flying around left right and centre, I have to say Blogging is one of those tasks that I know is very important in small business for standing out in the crowd especially in a competitive industry such as the Automotive industry BUT I find it extremely difficult to relax and let the words flow out into a little master piece that I often see posted by other business owners but hey I'm going to give it a go!!
Week 1's challenge outcome was to have created a vision board for the next 12 months, I decided to use the colour orange throughout my vision board as this is the colour of joy and creativity which is ultimately where I see myself in the next 12 months, in a blissful joy with my family, enjoying the success of our business. 

Family, mentality and business success is very important to my ultimate goal, I hope I have been able to correctly show that in my vision board :)

The first picture is an amazing quote by Eric Thomas (amazing motivational speaker - LOOK HIM UP) - the 2nd presents love and intimacy, 3 Dodge Viper for my partner, 4 lots of cash :D - 4 success building and building 5.  one of my dream cars luxury all the way 6 Balance this is something I eagerly seek in the next 12 months 7 a holiday :P 8. my family :) 9. We plan to have another child in the next 12 months 10. I would love to get fit and of course down the bottom is our logo as my next 12 months is going to be all Trublutint :) 

I hope you enjoyed my blog about the blog, and Ill be aiming to get more active blogging, and even get Truman into it :P
