Default Store Flyers

Hello everyone

I was wanting to know if any of you had tips on creating in store flyers

like to post on bulletin boards in hardware stores,banks,small town shops,grocery stores etc.

I looked at the ones on the site and i created a couple of my own but they all look very bland to me..

I dont wanna create one with all kinds of pictures and whatnot myself (although it would be nice to have those) because ill end up basically copying it and ill make myself feel cheap..and what if a customer saw that online..it would pose a bad image onto me..

Basically i just want tips or advice..i can post some of my bland flyers if your interested..

Thanks for the advice in advance and ill be sure to thank you personally after every post

I have the same problem. I always think my stuff looks bland too, and I'll probably never make that "perfect" flyer, but I would just get as many opinions as possible on it. Take it to family, friends, neighbors, ect. This forum is probably a pretty good start for that. Goodluck

Ill Probably never get the "perfect" flyer i just want a "hey that cought my attention i think ill go take a look" flyer

mine are just my big bold logo and my services and contact info

i want it to be simple but not to boring to where its just a fly on the wall

I was just wondering if any of you have had any good turnouts by these and what design works the best

Phone number tags
business cards underneath..
anything..anything at all to help me out..
how should it look etc...and since im not making 3000 like door hangers
printing in color is not a problem

Well, you could have a flyer with tear off contact info.

They see the flyer, tear off your phone number.

I just bought a few card holders and put my cards out in shops around town..

I was thinking about doing that as well..along with the advertising napkin holder idea in the podcasts..

theres TONS of small town coffee shops and restraunts and breakfast hut type things around here as well as DQ's and Gas stations..so i figure that would work well if i go through with it..

I haven't tested this to be sure but I bet you would get a better response with something like this

Over a flyer. I think people would find it easier to take them than read a flyer and tear off a tab.

You can even make your own out of gum packaging.

What's your view on this?

All I can do is show you the one I posted last year:
http://gopherforum.com/showpost.php?p=52538&postcount=7

http://gopherforum.com/showthread.php?t=9038

I updated it after I got licensed for fertilizing but I kept the look the same. All tear-offs were removed in all locations. Zero calls. lol
