I am considering designing my own brochure. Can you give me some tips on the content?

Posted in Ask the Expert

A: Tip: The content and graphics of a brochure are by far the most important part. Be sure to gather all content before you begin to design your piece.

Tip: It has been estimated that 95% of all people tend to do what their peers do. Because of this, your brochure should dedicate at least one panel to testimonials from satisfied clients and experts in your field.

Tip: Do not use general words that mean all things to all people. When using words related to your field define them. This will make the reader more comfortable and receptive to your message.

Tip: An effective way to implement content is through bullet points. This helps the reader scan through information instead of being bogged down by a lot of text.

Tip: All of your content should be persuasive, exude confidence in what you can offer and convey a sense of quality and knowledge to the reader. If the readers feel that you are qualified they will feel secure knowing that you can get the job done.
