					Print Advertising Guideline
"Advertising costs money. Period. You probably have a limited budget for marketing your company and want to create print advertising that will get
results without wasting your budget money. Design a postcard, brochure, newsletter, or any other form of advertisement that will capture attention right
away and cause clients to contact your business by following the tips below.


Action
Everyone knows that a good mail out will contain a call to action statement. What many people do not know, though, is that a call to action will be more
successful with a time frame. For instance, use phrases such as, “10% off for the month of July― or “Only 3 days left to receive your
discounted price.―


Headline
Make sure that your headline captures attention in a glance. It must be appealing or interesting enough to make a potential client stop for even a
moment to skim your postcard or brochure. Avoid misleading statements as they can cause readers to lose interest. Instead, write headliners that
cause interest but also clearly portray your message.


Simple
Avoid boring your readers with long, complicated paragraphs or sentences. Remember that you are not trying to explain all the ins and outs of your
company. You are merely attempting to bring in more business. Therefore, keep your sentences short and wording simple.


Graphics
The images in your print advertisement will make your message more interesting, but they need to correlate with the message. Graphics that do not
enhance your point are a distraction. With this in mind, also be sure to place pictures alongside the text it supports.


Test
While testing your marketing tools can be a long process, it is definitely worth it in the end. The most effective way to test your advertisement is by
changing only one aspect at a time, the wording of the headline for instance, otherwise you will not know what change did or did not produce results.
Be sure to keep track of the amount of results with each new change so that when your test is complete, you know which changes were the most
beneficial.


Print advertising can be difficult to perfect but if you have a guideline with which to begin, it can save you a lot of time and even money. So roll up your
sleeves and begin designing advertisements that produce results.
