Flyers and postcards are a very inexpensive way to market your business and if you well done can be effective. Here is 9 ways you can use a flyer:
For restaurants a menu is a good way to advertise your business. It is an inexpensive mandatory printed material and makes a great “take out menu”. When printing your menu on a cardstock flyer it is all in the design, because you printed a cheap flyer doesn’t mean it has to look cheap! Save on the printing cost and hire a professional graphic designer, visuals are very important in the food industry.
A flyer makes a great coupon and if done properly will pay for itself with the new business it will bring in. Design the flyer to have an offer as well as all your contact information. The last thing you want to send out a great deal and the client or prospect have no idea where you are located or how to contact you. The offer could be a fixed number or a percentage off.
3. Product Information
Use a full color flyer for product information which you can display in your store, use at tradeshows, leave at other locations, and/or distribute to clients and prospects. For a product information card images are very important as well as a good description of the product or service in order to be effective.
There is no more inexpensive way to print a full color invitation then a flyer. Invite customers and prospects to your locations as often as you can. Use the flyer to drop off in stores around your community and at your business to hand out to customers and future customers.
5. Opening a New Business
You have taken a leap of faith and are now opening your business, congratulations! The only problem is that if no one else knows it is not very good. Create a “We are open” flyer to hand out to friends and people in the community; let as many people know about your new business!

Whether you are having an open house, a block party, a charity event, a tradeshow, or any other event a full color printed flyer is a must. If it is also within your budget make sure you use advertise your events with a mailer as well.
