Welcome to the Magnet Works Blog!


"Daisy Joy" Welcome Mat from Magnet Works, Ltd

I’m so excited to welcome you to the official Magnet Works blog!

We’ll be posting here weekly in an effort to help support independent retailers and small businesses by sharing what we’ve learned from our own business experience. Some posts will give you a behind-the-scenes look at how Magnet Works works, and other posts will be just for fun.

Contributors to our blog will include:

Tammy Hickel – Tammy will share her wealth of knowledge about helpful sales, marketing and merchandising practices. As our VP of Sales and Marketing, Tammy works with Retailers and Sales Reps across the country to maximize sales and service opportunities. If you’ve visited our corporate showroom in Atlanta, you’ve seen examples of her merchandising talent. She retired from Nordstrom as VP Southeast Regional Manager after a successful 23-year career, which included positions in buying, merchandising, and management.

My Parents, Curt and Sue Todd – Together, they’ve taken Magnet Works from a small project in the basement of my childhood home to a national leader in outdoor décor that employs 45 people and operates in a 50,000 square foot warehouse. They’ll share some of the lessons they’ve learned along the way.

Myself, Mike Todd – I’m new to the gift industry, new to our family business, and new to the business world altogether. I was hired to coordinate online marketing projects at Magnet Works, so I’ll primarily share what I know and what I learn about email, social media, and search engine marketing as we dive into these arenas for the first time ourselves.

Other Employees – As our blog grows out of infancy, you’ll start to hear from a variety of other Magnet Works employees who specialize in customer service, human resources, graphic design, and more.

Guests – We welcome guest bloggers – retailers, fellow vendors/manufacturers, and other leaders in the gift industry. If you are interested in contributing to our blog, please email me at mike.todd@magnetworks.com.
