Why Print Leaflets?

Leaflets are a great way to market to your potential customers as long as it’s done right! With all types of printed product it’s important to get a good balance between the creative visual display and the actual content.

  • Take a consumer focused approach – research who your target market is and the audience that you would like to convert.
  • Make sure you don’t include too many words on the page, keep the copy concise and to the point making sure you have a clear call to action. Include all the contact details they need to encourage action.
  • Be consistent with your branding and communicate your brand image through the copy.
  • What makes your company different from the rest? Make sure your USP is well publicised.
  • Mention well known clients and include quotations
  • Address customers directly using terms like ‘you’ and ‘your’ and asking a rhetorical question.
  • Promotions, money off and discount with the leaflet (domino’s pizza style!)

Calls to action

Of all these issues, the call to action should be the most important feature of your leaflet or any other printed marketing materials. The leaflet should show a clear indication of what to do next – encouraging potential clients to take the next step. Creating awareness through great branding and visual aspects is great – but it’s important to turn that into new business, leads and sales.

Working with a partner

If you’re looking for large scale or bulk leaflet printing or other direct mail products, it’s important to forge partnerships with experience printing and mailing companies, who can provide advice, give you the best value and understand your needs. Some companies such as Orbital can even provide printing and mailing services through a mail house.

Printers can provide advice about everything from paper size and weight to which fonts to use. Get to know your printers early and take a trip to their premises to make sure all is running well. It’s also advisable to take into account the software you are using to make sure you’re using the same systems. Ask about their environmental impact also and use this fact on your leaflets – its good PR!
