Benefit Your Business With Printed Media

Benefit Your Business With Printed Media

Over the last decade or so there has been a dramatic rise of digital publishing and marketing, digital marketing has opened new marketing channels and techniques which have provided agencies with new avenues.
However, when you use both print and digital marketing tactics to compliment each other, both you and your target audience members benefit.
We’ve gathered together a few reasons why printed materials can improve your overall marketing strategy! Keep reading to find out how…

Brand Loyalty

Loyal customers help the sustainability of your brand and business, print materials can go a long way towards helping you build a loyal customer base.
For example, a loyalty card, say you where the owner of a coffee shop offering a loyalty card stating “Buy five coffees, receive a sixth one free” reinforces your customer to return when they feel as though the can receive a unique benefit they can’t get anywhere else, enforcing them to take care of their loyalty card. Although not every business needs loyalty card, but providing promotional materials is a good way to build customer loyalty, in return rewarding you with increased business.

Make it Memorable

A well put together printed media can stand out and make more of a lasting impression. Giving your audience and customers the ability to see and feel a piece of marketing material can reinforce your customers and clients to remember your business and return after a positive customer experience. Thought and time go into a print publications, making the final product more relevant for a longer period of time.

A Wider Audience

As well as reaching a key target audience, printed publications also captures the reader’s attention. People choose to read magazines or print advertisements, meaning the document is thoroughly in their hands – giving total focus. The reader isn’t multi-tasking or allowing the content to glide past them on a screen, which means the reader is engaged with the publication for longer.

An Unlimited Reach

The use of print media allows you, as a business to cover a versatile range of materials, in comparison to forms of digital media offering its essence in a one-off experience – a flat, texture less screen. Print media goes further than this and can virtually be performed on anything from business cards to leaflets to brochures - you can even print onto USB’s, mugs and even vehicles. Print media can turn anything into a billboard to promote your business, its products, services and brand.


One of the main reasons you should incorporate print media into your marketing strategy and business is to generate sales. Many businesses employ a wide range of marketing methods, including television adverts, digital adverts and print advertisements. While each advertising method has its unique benefits, studies have shown the highest return on investment of all marketing mediums.

Make the Most of Using Flyers

Flyers can add a great benefit to your marketing strategy when advertising your business. The design of your flyer holds great importance in capturing your readers attention, from the colour scheme to the information you include – you need to keep your reader interested so that they proceed to find out more about your company and what your company does.

We’ve gathered our four top tips on why you should incorporate flyers in your business’s advertising strategy.

Top Tip #1: Imagery & Design

You need to capture your audience’s attention right from the start its important to use as high-quality images as possible. The images your flyer obtains should capture the attention of the reader, pushing them to know more about your business – poor quality images may not portray your services or products in the best way. This could even impact a potential customer from even picking up your leaflet, the images you choose should be relevant to your business and showcase the services and products you choose.

Top Tip #2: Get the Message Across

An easy, recognisable message is key for drawing your reader in. Don’t waste your time or valuable flyer space on unnecessary information – try to get straight to the point of what you want your reader to know. Think of key points that will drive your reader to your business, things such as what you do, what the flyer is about, etc. Saving time on pointless content, lets you get straight to the point and gives the client a clear decision on whether they require your services.

Top Tip #3: Make your Text Informative

Although you want your flyer to read straight to the point, it’s important you are giving a clear message. Take into consideration that people need to understand what you are currently offering – what is the purpose of this flyer? Are you promoting your business? Is your company currently running any discount offers? Not only does your content need to be informative for the reader but you need to remain mindful of the end result, the style of the text portrays you as a business, think how you want to showcase your business.

Top Tip #4: Contact

Probably the most important part of the flyer, your reader has been drawn to your flyer and is interested in the service or offer you are running – but there are no contact details. The whole purpose of your flyer is to grab potential new customers, you want them to visit, call or email, you need your customer to connect with you. Your contact details should be clear and easy to read and include all the necessary information.
At the end of the day the main purpose of your flyer is to initiate a sale.
