Default Weed Terminator Flyer Feedback Please

Here's one iteration of my flyer so far. What do you think?


Thanks,

Still working on my Facebook page, website, and business card. For this flyer I used Photoshop, and also have Illustrator and all kinds of good Adobe Software I don't even know how to use, in the CS5.5 suite. Got plenty of time to learn now :]

I think asking the client for photos, approximate size, etc is asking too much of them. I know that you are trying to save time and money by getting right to the point, but I think you are asking a lot of the client. Most will look at it, and just say forget it, it's not worth the hassle.

You have a good starting point. Now in regards to the email, what happens when the year turns 2013? The 2012 will be outdated and look bad. Perhaps get a different email setup.

Thanks Tiedman,

I think you're right. I haven't started widely distributing these flyers, so not much damage done yet, lol. I thought I would be softening the request with the words" if possible," but I think you're right, it'll just be viewed as too much of a hassle. What do you think of the colors?

I've also created weedterminatortom@gmail.com. Now to figure out how to get email from weedterminator2012 forwarded.

Further iterations to come!
Tom

You could use an email client to forward email from various accounts to one account. I use Incredimail to do just this.

I personally like the flyer. I like the font, and the colors. It looks very clean. I would only change what I mentioned before.

Tom,

Very creative flyer.

I know you have already changed this, but I wanted to know if you could explain your thought on asking the customer for pictures and such? Even asking them for a description of the area?

How do you feel that helps you? How does that help sales?

Also, what is your view on the benefits of having a facebook page and not having a business website?
