While the World Wide Web and social media seems to be the means to the end of getting your word out these days, there is also something to be said for good old boots to the ground contact with your local customers. Maybe one of the best tactics for this is leaflet distribution. You may scoff at this as just some bit of paper that gets tossed in the rubbish, but there are so many smart and effective means to getting your message out by using a local, focused, targeted leaflet distribution service.
Message: Leaflet distribution may draw to mind the pieces of paper which get stuck under your wiper blades on your car or something you find in between your mail. Those are some modes of transfer but there are so many other types of leaflets, which you can use to great impact. Leaflets can include catalogues, coupons, adverts, time-sensitive offers, or just simple introduction to who you are and what your business is all about. You control the methods so you control the message.
Delivery: You also may abhor certain kinds of leaflets as you feel they are intrusive. But as the customer you also control the means of delivery. If you want to get out your message to as many folks as possible and you want to inundate the target area with every type of advert, that is well within your ability. However if you only want to target certain spots; grocery stores, schools, community centres, or whatever else; that is of course your right. By keeping the delivery in your preferred mode and location you are also influencing the type of traffic you are going to get into your business.
Coverage: When you decide on leaflet distribution you want to be sure that you are getting the right type of distribution coverage in the right area and by the right people. You need to be working with a delivery professional who is going to have you and your businesses best interests in mind. The last thing you want is some kind of backlash from angry community members who feel as though your ads have sullied the ambiance or charm of the area. Working with a professional will help alleviate any type of backlash.
Style: You also want to be sure that your leaflet distribution efforts are going to carry the right type of style and personality that your business strives to get across. Working with a mom and pop shop that does this may save you a little money but you are also going to be limited by the type and volume of product which a smaller group can put out. If your business takes off you are going to need a pro in your corner.
Of course you need to be the one to make the decisions for your business. But if you haven’t been getting the exact response to the sales, events, promotions, or just saturation into your local marketplace and you haven’t tried leaflet distribution, you definitely should. Leaflet distribution can be the key to unlock a world of local clients you didn’t even know existed who may not have known you existed either!
