Don’t underestimate the power of a bold header. After all, it’s probably the first thing that someone scrolling through social media is likely to see–and it’s a great opportunity to do something outside of the box. Your flyer header is an opportunity to use a decorative font, creative visuals, and an eye-catching color scheme.
Clichés aren’t always a bad thing! Using familiar flyer styles, colors and imagery will provide context and help customers understand what you’re about right away. Use obvious cues: blackboards and apples mean school; orchestras and script fonts equal classical music; postcards and stamps portray travel and so on.
If your brand allows it, dare to take some risks and be provocative. Make a bold claim, be overdramatic, use humor if you have it and maybe even lean on some swear words if appropriate (or if inappropriate and you really want to make a flyer statement).
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.
You can use a QR code as a CTA to encourage readers to find out more about your business, to get exclusive offers, or even to enter a contest. They’re easy to work seamlessly into your flyer design–just make sure to include a short description in case the QR code doesn’t work.
Make your business flyer stand out by using interesting photography, shapes, and icons in the flyer background. Flyers are designed to grab attention, so it makes sense to utilize as many clever design hacks as you can.
