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?
Don’t be afraid to pull at those heartstrings—even if they’re not directly relevant to the business, flyer design with cute images can help to grab attention and give people all the feels.
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).
To keep readers engaged, it helps to add surprising elements to your flyer design. You can do this by dividing your flyer into different sections with color block backgrounds, or by applying different color filters to sections of your flyer.
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.
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.
