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).
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.
If you have multiple products you want to showcase–like a new product line or seasonal products–then a simple grid layout is a good way to approach your flyer design. That way, your products will be organized and easy to skim. In this product flyer example you can see how easy it is to see all of the products at once, without the design becoming cluttered or hard to read.
Icons can also be used to represent different options offered by your business. Look for a simple icon that illustrates your option, and differentiate the options by using different colored flyer background.
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.
