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.
Think outside the flyer box and get creative with its shape, maybe even turning it into something that can be repurposed. If you can get people using the flyer instead of throwing it away, you’ve succeeded! Consider creating a flyer that’s a door hanger or a postcard, or perhaps an interactive design that inspires the customer to fold it or play around with it in some capacity.
An unusual image (whether it’s a photo or an illustration) helps draw attention and encourages people to take a closer look at your flyer. Try putting a unique spin on your product or blending it with other settings, objects, or people relevant to your business.

Consumers like to know what they’re getting. That’s why it’s a good idea to include a big picture of your product–or even use it as a background image for your flyer. ust make sure that the text stand out against the background. Using bold, blocky text can help. You could also overlay your image with a transparent color filter.
Flyers are tangible, cost effective and incredibly versatile. When done right, they can reach the right audience with the right message at the right time—which, after all, is what marketing is all about.
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.
