One very popular and effective tool to market any business is a brochure.Brochures are a great way to provide prospective customers and clients a little bit of information about your business and to also offer incentive to come to your door (or your website). A well-written, professional-looking small business brochure design will help pique the interest of the recipients and get you started on the road to success, and the creation of a great brochure does not have to cost a lot of money.
Here are some tips to creating a business brochure design that really works:
Appeal to the emotions of the consumer. The old saying, “Get to the heart of the issue…” really works here. Think of some way to make your business stand out from the rest Maybe encourage prospective customers to buy local and keep the mom n’ pop businesses going. Include something about being new to the business world and ask for support without sending desperate. If the recipients of your brochure feel some sort of connection with you, they are more likely to spend their money on your products and services rather than a larger, more established chain store.
Spend the extra money to include high-quality images and printing. Use quality paper and make sure your brochure looks professional. A flimsy brochure with cheesy pictures and mistakes in the text will not impress anyone. Investing the time, effort and money now will pay off greatly in the future.
Make your brochure appealing to the reader with attractive colors, easy-to-read font, bullet points, etc. In today’s busy world of everything electronic and small snippets of information, a wordy brochure with long paragraphs and no images will most likely end up in the trash. Be succinct with your words and capture the reader’s attention right away with something eye-catching on the front of the brochure. If they don’t like the front of the brochure, they won’t even bother opening it to see what you have to say or offer.
Speak the customer’s language. Fancy jargon and long-winded explanations of why your business is so great will do nothing to encourage people to come to your business or visit your website. Think about what you would want to know if you were a consumer in need of the product or service you offer.
Try to keep your brochure focused on one clear, simple message. You cannot possibly include everything about your business in your brochure. Focus on what you find to be your strength and get them in the door with information about that. Intrigue the reader with a brief overview of what you want them to know and let their curiosity lead them to you.
