Flyers are tangible, cost effective and incredibly versatile. When done right, they can reach the right audience with the right message at the right time—which, after all, is what marketing is all about.
Flyer design is an opportunity to play around with unconventional layouts. That means you don’t have to stick to the classic left-to-right layout. For example, you could position your product in the center of your flyer and circle product details around it.
You may want to show your full range of products or services to demonstrate the many different options available. Presenting the various flyer styles and designs that you offer and the many ways they can be used things will help you capture as many customers as possible.
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.
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.
