What are Two Types of Brochures

November 28, 2009

When designing your brochure first decide what you want to accomplish. Do you want to create interest to bring customers to you. Or, is your customer looking for more information? Once you know this choosing the type of brochure is easy.

The first type of brochure is like an advertisement. It is designed to build interest and desire in your product or service. The brochure has a big headline, strong visuals, and a call to action. Tell your customer what to do by using coupons to return, or calling you, or even better, come in to the store if you are a brick n morter.

The second type of brochure is to give detailed information. Customers who have contacted you want more detailed information on your product or service. This is definately the brochure to send them.

Don’t waste your money by sending the wrong brochure. Define your objective and use your brochure to accomplish your goal. The best option is to create two different brochures with the specific information for each type of customer.

Start your own Home Business

November 17, 2008

With all the closings of businesses lately some of you may be heading for the internet for a source of income. This is a good idea if you have a skill or hobby, such as graphic design, that you really like. Even if you don’t have the skill set you want now, find out where you can get the skills and pursue your dreams.

I’ll warn you up front you will have to wear many different hats. You must be able to keep track of business finances, inventory, work schedules, and vendors. You will have to deal with clients on a daily basis. Plus you might even have to give up doing family oriented tasks for a while.

So, before diving in and starting your home based business you need to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. Do you have the traits to work on your own? Are you a self starter? Can you keep yourself on track by organizing your time productively? Do you have the resources needed to produce your product or service? If so you will make a great entrepreneur.

The next step is to get busy setting up your office. Put up your website if you know how or have some one do it for you. I can even help with your website if you would like. Just take some action and get started on your dream. It won’t be easy but it will be worth the effort to sell online through your own home based business. Good Luck!
