You don’t need to go overboard and stuff the flyer full of every ounce of information you have available. Decide on one key message and then focus on that. Minimalist designs with a lot of space can really help to focus attention on what matters.
To ensure that distributing a flyer is worth your time, you will probably want to track the ROI of your flyers. Include a clear CTA (call-to-action) that not only prompts people to want to check out your business, but that will also enable you to track how many customers you pulled in with your flyer.
Illustrations can make a flyer design feel inviting. But creating an illustration in a pinch and within a budget can be tough–unless you do it yourself using icons. Think of a scene that illustrates what your business does. Then, arrange icons on your flyer like you would arrange stickers.
Sometimes old is new. If you’re not down with the kids and in touch with the latest trends, why not choose a vintage flyer design that embraces the old days?
If your flyer has a busy background image, it can be easy for text to get lost in it. This is an opportunity to introduce some functional design elements to your flyer. Try overlaying shapes over your background image and adjusting the transparency so some of the background still peaks through. That way, your text will be able to pop without the background image being obscured.
You don’t want to spend your money on a flyer that people will take one look at and then forget. What’s the specific action you want them to take? Do you want them to go to your store, download an app or attend an event? Make this clear! People shouldn’t have to guess.
