Tapping into seasonality and current events will ensure that your message is relevant and timely. It can be a promotion or a special event or just a flyer design element that ties into the symbols associated with the fall or the December holiday season or whatever else is going on that’s relevant to your brand and products.
Instead of just selling, why not use the real estate on the flyer to teach the user something? Show them how your product works, give concrete tips—make it useful.
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.
Sometimes going really dark can attract as much attention as bright colors. Black flyers is particularly effective for luxury brands or to communicate danger, horror or nighttime.
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.
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.
