For a lot of people, your flyer will their first introduction to your business. That’s why, if you want to appeal to your target audience, you should try to incorporate your business’ personality into your flyer design. What color scheme reflects your brand? What style–quirky? Sophisticated? Approachable?
While it may be tempting to hop onto the latest marketing trend and use whatever social app is making the headlines right now, sometimes tried-and-tested tools are the most effective—like flyers. The shiny leaflets handed out on the street—that often end up in the next trash can—still have a place in today’s marketing campaigns.
Pull more people into your circle by encouraging them to follow you on your social channels and, even better, to tag you as they share their pictures online. You can also use your flyer to ask people who have already bought from you to review your product online—why not use existing reviews and testimonials to provide social proof?
One of the easiest ways to recognize a brand is through their brand colors. Incorporating your brand colors into your flyer design will help keep your branding cohesive across all platforms, digital and print. You can either design your entire flyer in your brand colors, or you can use them as accent colors.
Icons – those simple vector graphics that you see everywhere–are handy for packing meaning into a small page. Because they’re simple and recognizable, you can use icons to reinforce (and sometimes even replace) text in your flyer design. Icons can seem overwhelming if you’re new to design, but once you understand their purpose icons are super easy to use.
Beautiful imagery is a great way to draw people in and get people looking at your flyer. The images should be of a high quality and visually impactful.
