Ok...


1. Your name is not a headline. Place it somewhere else.

2. Overall, it's a symmetrical layout but that "box" on the right is taller.
If you can't make that one shorter, make the one on the left the same height.

3. It looks like there are double spaces between words in a few places.

4. Bump everything down so it's not "up against the top" so much - give it some breathing room.

5. Maybe make the space between the three images and the image above a little bigger. (Like at the top portion of the ad)



Headline suggestion using text already used:
(spacing/fonts limited with what I have to work with here - just showing to give an idea)

Or even consider some kind of special offer at top too. It looks very nice though.

Not the designer here so you mention a three step process you might want to explain that instead of leaving them guessing.

Remember, you want your attention getting headline or offer at the top. You want to grab the readers attention as quickly as possible so they will read the rest of the flyer.
