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.
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.
A well thought out, well-designed flyer should be:
~ Eye-catching–enough to make people stop and take an interest in reading it.
~ Targeted–the flyer needs to speak directly to the audience you’re targeting.
~ Informative–people should know what the flyer is advertising and where they can find out more.
~ Convincing–the flyer should get people excited about your product, service or event.
When designing your product flyer, think about the personality you want to communicate. Is your business fun and easygoing? Is it reliable? Is it innovative, or more traditional? Since flyers are such an instantaneous marketing material you need to make an impression on potential customers, and fast.
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.
Beyond the content and design of what’s on the flyer, consider the flyer itself. Most flyers tend to come in a pretty standard size, so consider what you can do to make yours different. Try going smaller to make it easier to handle or go big for an impressive high-end product.
