5 simple things that will make your flyers convert more sales

 

You’ve printed flyers before – almost all businesses have. They are cheap, easy and effective marketing tools and you want to make sure your flyers convert more sales- you can, if they are done right. With flyers, you have a very short window of opportunity to grab the recipients attention. Here’s 5 ways to do that.

 

1. Use a short, catchy title which directly addresses your customers needs

You only have a few seconds to grab a potential customer’s attention with a flyer. Don’t waste them! The most effective way of drawing someone in is with a short, catchy title which directly addresses your customers needs.

Your flyer is an advertisement, not a business card – don’t use your own or your business name as a title! Customers aren’t interested in who you are or what you do (yet). They’re interested in their own needs or wants. Address them.

 

2. Include an eye catching picture

The next best thing to a title for grabbing the attention of potential customers is an eye catching picture. Follow up your short, catchy title with a relevant eye catching picture.

An “eye catching picture” should be big, colourful, and stand out from the rest of your flyer.

 

3. Make your flyer vibrant, big, and bold

The design of your flyer is crucial, and it’s not the time to be subtle or understated – vibrant colours, a big picture, and bold text is what will grab the attention of passersby.

This does not mean you should cram your flyer with anything and everything! A vibrant, big, and bold flyer does not mean a cluttered flyer. Keep the amount of text to a minimum and don’t cram too many images.

 

4. Raise, and solve, problems

Compare the following three statements:

  1. Jim’s Computer Repair
  2. Do you want to speed up your computer?
  3. Stop wasting time waiting for your computer and get more done.

The third option seems far more attractive than the other two, doesn’t it? That’s because (1) doesn’t raise a specific problem, and therefore cannot solve it. (2) is slightly better, but still too broad. However (3) raises a problem, personalises that problem, and then offers a solution.

Avoid a list of services, yours or your business name, and vague problems. Raise a clearly defined, relatable problem and then solve that problem.

 

5. Close with a call to action.

You could nail everything else on a flyer, but you will fail to seal the deal if you don’t include an effective call to action. A call to action is a prompt to encourage potential customers to take the next step towards purchase, participation, or registration.
