Make the Most of Using Flyers

Flyers can add a great benefit to your marketing strategy when advertising your business. The design of your flyer holds great importance in capturing your readers attention, from the colour scheme to the information you include – you need to keep your reader interested so that they proceed to find out more about your company and what your company does.

We’ve gathered our four top tips on why you should incorporate flyers in your business’s advertising strategy.

Top Tip #1: Imagery & Design

You need to capture your audience’s attention right from the start its important to use as high-quality images as possible. The images your flyer obtains should capture the attention of the reader, pushing them to know more about your business – poor quality images may not portray your services or products in the best way. This could even impact a potential customer from even picking up your leaflet, the images you choose should be relevant to your business and showcase the services and products you choose.

Top Tip #2: Get the Message Across

An easy, recognisable message is key for drawing your reader in. Don’t waste your time or valuable flyer space on unnecessary information – try to get straight to the point of what you want your reader to know. Think of key points that will drive your reader to your business, things such as what you do, what the flyer is about, etc. Saving time on pointless content, lets you get straight to the point and gives the client a clear decision on whether they require your services.

Top Tip #3: Make your Text Informative

Although you want your flyer to read straight to the point, it’s important you are giving a clear message. Take into consideration that people need to understand what you are currently offering – what is the purpose of this flyer? Are you promoting your business? Is your company currently running any discount offers? Not only does your content need to be informative for the reader but you need to remain mindful of the end result, the style of the text portrays you as a business, think how you want to showcase your business.

Top Tip #4: Contact

Probably the most important part of the flyer, your reader has been drawn to your flyer and is interested in the service or offer you are running – but there are no contact details. The whole purpose of your flyer is to grab potential new customers, you want them to visit, call or email, you need your customer to connect with you. Your contact details should be clear and easy to read and include all the necessary information.
At the end of the day the main purpose of your flyer is to initiate a sale.

Banner Uses

Banner Uses

A banner stand is a very useful piece of marketing equipment for any business in a number of different industries. They come in a whole range of shapes and sizes and have an even bigger range of different uses. Crystal Print are also really flexible in terms of the content of the banner and so you can choose almost any design that you want. Some of the most popular ways that businesses and individuals use banner stands are listed below.

At Trade Shows

A lot of information about your business can be conveyed on a banner stand which is very useful at a trade show. You can use the banner to tell people what your business is all about and what products you have to offer. All of this information will be available to potential customers at a glance and you will be there in person to explain everything in more detail.

For Special Events

If your business has a special event coming up then you can use a banner stand to tell customers all about it. You may want to consider using an outdoor banner for this purpose which can be positioned outside where it will attract the attention of people that are passing. You could also consider the use of double sided banners which will enable you to give customers twice as much information about the event.

Providing Directions

A banner stand can be very useful for providing customers with information about where they can find the help that they are looking for. This is particularly useful if your place of business has a number of different departments. The ideal place for this type of banner stand to be located is in reception or near to the entrance of the building.

At A Wedding

Banner stands can have many different uses at a wedding. If you want something different from a photo booth then a banner stand can provide an excellent backdrop for photos which can then be looked back on as memories of the day. Banner stands can also be used as centrepieces and table decorations. If they are used in this way then they will usually have a photograph of the bride and groom on. They can also have more practical uses such as listing the guests that will be sitting at each table.

At Impulse Buying Areas

Banner stands are available that fit on the top of table and display cabinets. These can be great additions to displays that you have where items are already on sale. If the banner has a design on it that you have really thought about, then this is a great way to get the attention of your customers and to convince them to make a purchase.

For all of your banner relating needs across Essex, come to Crystal Print. Our team will be happy to help in anyway possible.
