Flyers are one of the oldest, most foolproof advertising tools in the book. We’re used to receiving flyers everywhere: in our mail boxes, on the street, in stores and restaurants. But are flyers still effective in 2019/2020?
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.
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.
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.
Answer the big question: what’s in it for me? right away by alerting customers to what you can do for them. Your business flyer likely addresses a need or problem, so make the benefit explicit and use imagery to reinforce the message.
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.
