Booklets Printing: 4 Ideas for Incorporating Them Into Your Brand’s Marketing Strategy

We always emphasize the importance of printed formats for a marketing strategy. Contrary to what it may seem, this type of material is far from dead – on the contrary, it can deliver a better ROI than digital formats. With that in mind, today we will present a versatile and very interesting format that you can use to increase your brand’s awareness among customers or even get new leads. We’re talking about booklets.

 

What is a Booklet Anyway?

Booklets are printed brochure materials (that is, as if it were a book). They can be used for a multitude of purposes – storybooks, magazines, catalogs, discount books, instruction manuals and others. You can have booklets printed in a variety of sizes, paper types and page counts.

Is it Worth Including Them in my Marketing Strategy?

Like any marketing and publicity tool, the answer to this question is: it depends. Throughout this text, we will present some uses and advantages of this type of material, so you can evaluate if it makes sense for your business and in what way.

 

But what we can say is that booklets are great ways to present yourself to customers in a solid and reliable way (since this type of material is usually printed on good quality paper and with good printing).

 

It’s also a way to create a more tangible connection with your leads – having your booklet in hand, people can take it home, analyze it better, think about it… When closing the deal, which can happen almost immediately or after a while, they’ll probably think of your brand.

How Can I Use a Booklet?

If you read the paragraphs above and liked the idea, here are some thoughts that you can apply to your business.

 

  1. Booklet as a Mini-Magazine

Let’s say you have a cosmetics and makeup brand. You can use the booklet format to create mini-magazines to show you how to use your products. It can include images and text with skin care routine suggestions or even makeup tutorials. Really like a magazine, only totally dedicated to your brand.

 

  1. Booklets as Catalogs

If your brand is in the construction or decoration business, you can use this type of material as a catalog of your products. Let’s say you sell hardwood flooring options – you can include good images of the available colors to help anyone looking for this type of product. That way, your potential customers can take your booklet home and better analyze which shade of wood would be ideal for their home.

 

  1. Booklets as a Guide

In that case, you can send your customers instruction manuals that are more informative and more detailed than what we usually find on the market. If you have also suffered with a bad instruction manual on how to assemble a furniture, for example, you know well that your customers will certainly be grateful for one with more in-depth information.

 

  1. Booklets to Position Yourself as an Expert

Let’s say you have a publishing house or even a bookstore. You can use booklets to position yourself as an authority in your area. Your material may have interesting book reviews, as well as announcements of new releases and market trends.

A-Frame Signs, Marketing Materials

A-Frame Sign: How to Design Your Communication Strategy Using This Type of Material

We have already talked here about the most varied uses of A-frame signs, which are great graphic materials, since they are versatile and can be used for a number of purposes. With them, you can both guide your customers inside your establishment (point the direction to the toilet, for example) and attract potential customers to your store, publicize an event and so on.

 

But how to design an assertive and cost-effective strategy using A-frame signs? That’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today, so read on for practical tips.

 

A-Frame Sign: The Types

Basically, there are two types of A-frame signs. Single sided and double sided. This means that you can have a message print on one side and leave the other side blank. Or have the sign printed with messages – which can be the same or different – on both sides.

 

Furthermore, A-frame signs are made up of two distinct parts – frames and inserts. If you are making your first signs, you order the two parts together (frame + inserts, which is where the messages you want to display will be printed). But when you want to change the text, you can have only the inserts made – and reuse the frames.

 

How to Build My Strategy With A-Frame Signs?

Now that you know the types, you can think of a strategy that has to do with your business. Check out the tips below.

 

  1. Single or Double?

Yes, oddly enough, it’s not always worth investing in double sided A-frames. Let’s demonstrate using a practical example: let’s say you have a restaurant and you want to use A-frame signs to advertise your special lunch menu, which is served every day from Monday to Saturday – with different options for each day, of course.

 

And the place where your A-frame sign sits only shows one side to the audience. That is, it is not necessary to frame the menu for each day for both sides. In this case, you can buy just one sign with the frame and another five inserts – so you change the insert daily, leaving only that day’s menu on display.

 

  1. Double Frame, Double Message

If your A-frame sign has both sides visible to passersby, you don’t necessarily need to print the same message twice. You can put a message on each. One of them may have the menu of the day and another may indicate a seasonal dish or drink, for example.

 

  1. With or Without a Date?

Another tip that can help you get the most out of your communication strategy using A-frame signs is to include dates only when absolutely necessary. That is, when you want to publicize a specific event or some special condition – it can be a themed menu, for example – that will only be available during a period of time.

 

If there is no need for the date, do not include it. That way, you can build your small collection of inserts and save in the long run. If you had four Christmas-themed inserts made the year before, you can use them again this year – or maybe just make one or two new ones, so you can alternate uses.

 

  1. Design

We are well aware that a clean design that at the same time attracts the pedestrian’s attention is essential. If you don’t understand a lot about design, the good news is that nowadays there are a number of companies that offer you tools to help you with this step. Rayacom, for example, has a series of templates available that can also help you build your strategy with A-frame signs.

Vinyl Banners: 3 Tips to Make Interesting Pieces and Attract Customers’ Attention

Do you have a company that is always present in events? They can be festivals, produce markets or even special events organized by the company itself. If so, you probably already needed to have a vinyl banner installed in place, right? After all, these materials are efficient in informing and attracting customers – and, of course, they can be a great sales generator.

 

Generally, banners are used to promote products and services. They can be placed on the storefront or on the stand (in the case of events), it all depends on the format and the intention. In this article, we will give you tips for creating an irresistible banner for your business. And today, we’re going to talk specifically about vinyl ones.

 

Vinyl Banners: Step by Step

Below, we have prepared a guide that will help you plan and have your vinyl banners made. But we remind you right now that if you have any questions or need help regarding the graphic part, you can contact us directly at Rayacom – we have a design team in-house and we can help you with your demands, ok?

 

Moving on to the main subject, follow the steps below:

 

  1. Less is More!

A prominent vinyl banner doesn’t have to be packed with information. The ideal is that you choose to be simple – use flashy colors, few elements and text that draws attention.

 

Even being in large format, the banner must have succinct information. By reducing the number of information, you can increase the size of fonts and images, attracting more eyes to what really matters.

 

In addition, consumers quickly pass by your store or your stand. Therefore, they look at the banner for just a few seconds – you need to minimize the amount of text to make them understand the offer, so they can enter your store to check it out.

 

  1. Objectivity

The banner may include a sales call. In this case, it is necessary to be very clear so that the customer can understand the offer. Be direct in the text, write in a way that attracts the attention of consumers.

 

If you have a furniture store, for example, you can make a banner to highlight product discounts at the end of the year. An example would be: 10% discount on cash purchases! Enjoy it now!

 

In the example above, in addition to the sale being very clear, the use of an imperative expression can make people enter your store and check out your products.

 

  1. Be Careful With Images

As the banner is a large format material, having an image with high resolution is very important, to ensure that the printing process does not make it look bad, with a pixelated image, for example.

 

If you have your own images, great! If not, a good tip is to use free image sites like Pixabay or Unsplash. In these websites, you can download images in high resolution and royalty free.

Vinyl Banners in Vancouver and Burnaby

A-Frame Signs: 4 Tips on How to Use Them to Boost your Business

Have you ever considered using an A-frame sign to draw attention to your business? If not, that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today – after all, this type of sign is very interesting to draw the attention of those who pass near your establishment. Basically, A-frame signs are mobile A-shaped signs that can be placed either on the sidewalk or entrance of a store or inside – it’s a simple, practical and inexpensive way to attract more potential customers.

 

When placed outside establishments, they are generally used to indicate directions, publicize events or even special conditions (but the possibilities are diverse, we’ll get there!). On the inside of places, they are generally used to indicate directions or pass messages.

 

According to data from a survey carried out by the University of San Diego, in the United States, regarding advertising with signs, the A-frame type ones are able to increase the traffic of people in about 8.3% and the revenue in 4.75% in the year.

How to Use A-frame Signs

If you have a business – especially if it’s on the street – this is a simple and very effective way to advertise. Keep reading this article for more information and tips on how to use it.

 

  1. Sales or Special Conditions

This type of sign allows you to advertise sales and special conditions much more easily. Let’s use a restaurant as an example – you can use an A-frame to advertise a special menu of the day or the launch of a new dish.

 

  1. Guide the Customers

Not all stores are located in a busy area or even facing the street. There are establishments that are in alleys or even on the second floor, on top of another store, for example. If your establishment fits this description, that is, it is not so obvious to passers-by, you can benefit greatly from A-frame signs. That’s because you can use them to guide the consumer to your store.

 

  1. Encourage Impulse Purchases

That the main purpose of A-frame signs is to attract more customers we know. But beyond that, you can formulate your signs in a way that really encourages impulse buying – use them to advertise temporary promotions. That way you can even measure the effectiveness of this type of advertising.

 

Going back to the restaurant example, you can advertise a breakfast menu that is not on your usual menu. That way, whenever customers ask for that specific combo, you already know it was because they saw it in the ad on the street.

 

  1. Events

If you do special events at your store, this is also an easy way to publicize them – it could be a festival or a special musical attraction, for example.

How to Make a Good A-frame Sign?

If the intention, as we have pointed out a few times throughout this article, is to attract the attention of pedestrians, always pay attention to details such as:

 

  • Short, clear and simple text (check your spelling!);
  • If you are going to promote a sale, highlight the values ​​or special conditions;
  • Choose a flashy design, but avoid excessive combination of colors and different fonts;
  • Use humor in your messages! This always catches the attention of potential customers.

Direct Mail: How Can I Track Results and Know if My Strategy Worked?

When we talk about advertising strategies for a brand, it is very common that the focus is always more intense on the planning and execution of that specific action than on the measurement of results. And when it comes to direct mail, it’s no different: we always think about what to communicate, about design, to whom we would like to send that material…

 

It turns out that it is necessary to track and measure results to understand if the strategy is working. That is, to understand whether the investment is being successful or not. If you still have doubts about how to do this, we have prepared a guide with some methods that can help you understand if your direct mail is being effective.

How to Track Direct Mail Results?

Let’s start this article with good news: measuring and tracking the results of a direct mail strategy today can be simple! Also, there are a number of different ways to do this, you can either use more than one per campaign or switch between them to understand how your audience best interacts with the material. Check out some suggestions below.

 

  1. Trackable URL

One of the simplest ways to measure results is through a trackable URL. That is, in your direct mail you will direct your audience to a landing page or a specific section of your website. That way, you can check the clicks via Google Analytics.

 

You can even make different URLs and send different printed materials to two regions of the country or city, for example – so you can even test which area was most impacted by the strategy.

 

  1. Discount Coupon

This type of strategy is often very successful – recipients are happy they got a discount and you can track how many times a coupon has been used. It is very useful for online stores, but it can also be done in person (the person takes the material received to your store) or even over the phone.

 

In that case, remember to offer a discount that is attractive to the customer and still viable for you.

 

  1. QR Codes

Want an even easier way to drive the direct mail audience to your website? Include a QR Code that takes them to a specific page. It works the same way as the URL, but people can just point their phone camera at the code and check out your page.

 

  1. Service via WhatsApp

If you use corporate WhatsApp at your company, you can also include a phone number in the material. If you use customer service bots, you can include a question about the mailing so you know who got there through the mailed material.

And How to Collect and Analyze the Direct Mailing Data?

Through the above methods, you are able to collect a series of data. These are: response data (i.e. how many people accessed the link or QR code), qualified response data (people who not only accessed your website, but showed real interest in the purchase – added products to the cart, for example) and sales data.

 

In this way, you can calculate three types of cost:

 

  1. Cost per response (total campaign spend / total responses).
  2. Cost per qualified response (total campaign spend / total qualified responses)
  3. Cost per sale (total campaign spend / total sales).

 

With this data in hand, you can compare your company’s revenue and profit before and after the campaign and understand if it made sense for you.

After all, we’ve already given you some tips on how to include this type of material in your planning – if you haven’t read it, you can check it out here and here. And we attest that it is worth it, since this is one of the strategies with the highest return on investment.

 

Anyway, if you’re already convinced to include direct mail in your planning but still don’t know how to start doing it, this post can help you.

Canada Post Direct Mailers

For starters, if you’ve never invested in direct mail, we’ll guide you through the steps necessary for a successful mailing. Follow the step by step below.

 

  1. Information

To get started, you need to know what you want to communicate in your direct mail campaign. Is it a promotion? An opening? A special condition for those who take the material received to your store? This is what needs to be defined first, as it will set the tone for the entire campaign.

 

Prefer short, clear and objective sentences. Don’t write too much, but also be sure to include all the important details – if you’re communicating a promotion, make it clear how long it lasts, for example.

 

  1. Design

Once you have defined what you want to communicate to your potential customers, it is time to define how to do it, that is, what design will be used. If your company already has a designer, this part is simpler. If not, you can use specific tools for that, like Canva, for example.

 

If you’re in the Burnaby and Vancouver area, you can count on RayaCom’s help too. We have some premade layouts that you can use. In addition, we also have a design team that can help you if you want something more personalized or have specific demands.

 

  1. Size and Number of Copies

It’s time to choose the details – size of material that will be printed and how many copies will be sent. To give you an idea, to print and send 500 units of a 4×6 size printed material costs about $266. If you want to print and send 5000 copies, the value goes to $1585. You can get this quote directly on the RayaCom website.

 

  1. What About Shipping?

You might be wondering how to ship – especially if you don’t have a mailing list, right? Because many companies already do this work together with printing, as is the case with RayaCom. You just need to select whether you prefer your material to be delivered to homes, businesses or even rural areas.

 

If your goal is to target a specific neighborhood in the city, you can also indicate this by filling in the postal code on your order form. Finally, fill in the campaign start date. And that’s it, then just wait about five business days – time needed for printing and internal processes – and your direct mail campaign will be underway.

Flyers, Marketing Materials

Flyers, Folders or Pamphlets: What’s the Difference? How to Choose the Best Format for My Business?

Flyers, folders and pamphlets are graphic materials made to publicize a brand, event or services. They can also be for informational purposes or for offline marketing strategies. But do you know the difference between them? And how to choose the best format for your advertising strategy?

Flyers, Folders or Pamphlets?

 

In this article we will explain what each one is and show you how they can be used. But first, it is important to point out: a consistent marketing strategy can have more than one format of material to reach different audiences – in addition, of course, to interaction with online strategies. That is, it is interesting to know the formats precisely to understand which ones best fit which objective. Keep reading to understand better.

Pamphlet

The pamphlet appeared for the first time in the middle ages, in the 13th century to be more precise – was a kind of anonymous love poem made to circulate among people. Later, the pamphlet was intended to disseminate texts and poems that were smaller than books. Today, the pamphlet as we know serves to disseminate and spread quick information, such as store openings, promotions and information in general.

 

It is usually printed in A5 and A6 sizes, and on lighter (thinner) paper. Intended to be a fast-moving and low-cost material, the pamphlet is perfect for printing in large quantities. Because of this, it generally has a simpler print, in one color, for example. It is an interesting material to promote quick sales, for example, and increase the number of people in your establishment quickly.

Flyers

Flyers are very similar to pamphlets and can be seen as an evolution of them. According to the meaning of the name flyers (objects that fly) this type of material is intended to be delivered quickly and in mass. What differentiates flyers from pamphlets are the more elaborate arts, printing in more colors and heavier papers.

 

Not only is the design of the flyers more sophisticated, but also the colors are more striking, all designed to make an impact on who will receive the material. It’s a good format for publicizing openings (after all, the first impression matters!), specific events (a party or an exhibition, for example), although it can also be used to promote discounts.

Folder

The folder is the trio’s most sophisticated graphic material. In order to bring a richer experience in information and details, the folder has a much more refined and informative design. Although the folder is more expensive, it will generally also be printed in less quantity. In this case, there are a number of formats that can be adopted – simple, accordion, folded in two or three and others.

 

How to use them?

Let’s talk about a basic practical example of how it is possible to use the three types of material in a marketing strategy. Let’s say you’ve opened a pizzeria and your first goal in terms of publicity will be to publicize your establishment in the neighborhood. One idea would be to print flyers with beautiful and eye-catching photos of the pizzas (it is interesting to use images of your own products! This attracts more attention than generic photos) to communicate the opening and even some special conditions for the opening date (like a discount) .

 

Pamphlets can be used to communicate a promotion that can last a little longer, like a month, for example. Let’s say it’s a 10% discount for those who deliver the pamphlet at the store at the time of ordering. That way, you can negotiate better prices for printing more units. And then space out the distribution well to try to increase sales volume throughout the month.

 

Finally, you can have folders with the menu printed in the store – that way, those who go there can take one home to check the flavors before ordering by phone or app. In this case, don’t forget to include a QR code that takes the consumer to the online ordering platform you use. That way, you can connect the strategies – online and off-line.

Flyers Printing: What Is the Ideal Quantity for My Campaign?

Flyers is one of the most used tools to stimulate sales of a particular product or service. The amount of flyers for printing must be based on distribution and it is necessary to use some strategies to have optimized and efficient results.

Throughout this article, we will give you some tips so that you can design your calendar and arrive at the amount that makes sense for your campaign.

When to Use Flyers Printing in Your Business?

Flyers are simple graphic materials and have a high return power. But for that to happen, it is interesting to set up a dissemination strategy and understand if they fit into it. Flyers are great ways to announce new services, store openings, supermarkets, pizzerias and any other type of commercial establishment. In general, people automatically associate flyers with something new. Therefore, this is an important tool for people to know certain products and get excited about discovering new places that have opened in the neighborhood.

Where to Deliver These Flyers?

To reach your audience, the ideal thing is that you distribute these flyers in places with high traffic of people. Choose specialized companies to distribute the flyers in places that people who might be interested in your product can be. In addition, you can leave these flyers in establishments that your audience will have access to and that are related to the product or service being advertised.

 

To have great results in your flyers, identifying the target audience is one of the most important activities. Identify who are the people who are interested in the promotion or service included in the flyers, in order to have greater chances of selling.

After All, What Is the Ideal Number of Flyers for Printing?

This amount will depend on the audience you want to reach, the defined strategy and, above all, the duration of the promotion included in it. Let’s think of a practical example: you opened a unit of your chain of pizzerias in a new neighborhood and you would like to publicize the opening of this new store to the neighborhood. You can offer a promotional price for a certain period to those who present the flyers when paying for pizza, for example.

 

In this case, create a schedule with dates, with the end date of the promotion being the end of the calendar for that specific campaign. Then decide how many days the flyers distribution will take place and where it will take place. In high-traffic places? In building entrances? If you are going to leave it at commercial establishments, find out how many people go to these places, to get a sense of the ideal amount. Also think about the flow of people that you have the capacity to serve on a daily basis, you must take into account the possibility of high demand for your product.

 

From there, you can get an idea – anyway, in the case of promotions or limited benefits, it’s best not to exaggerate the number of copies (since they will only be used for a specific period). For more general flyers, you can even have them printed in larger quantities to get a lower price for the whole and then structure the delivery dates over the months.

Canada Post Direct Mailers: Quick Guide to a Successful Strategy

There are numerous benefits to including direct mail in your marketing strategies. As it provides for communication by mail, it allows you to create a closer relationship with your customers, making your brand remembered and more admired. And for those of you who are thinking of running a campaign like this and don’t know how to start, we’ve prepared a basic guide to an effective action strategy. Check it out below.

Canada Post Direct Mail Marketing Guide

For your Canada Post direct mail campaign to be really effective, the direct mail needs to be well designed to become a channel that will nurture a good relationship with your prospect. In this way, it is worth mentioning that it is important to avoid using standardized parts. And so that your campaign has the face of your brand, follow the tips below.

 

  1. Data is Gold

Let’s assume that your objective with the direct mail campaign is to publicize your organic fruit and vegetable delivery service and, thus, expand your area of ​​operation and your customer base. One way to do so is by using your database – that is, the addresses your customers gave you when they made a purchase. Among them, there is probably a parcel that bought some things a few times from you and never returned – this contact via direct mail can be the little push they needed to come back.

 

Another option, if your goal is to reach potential customers who may not know your brand, is to hire this service directly from Rayacom. In this case, you already choose who you want to send to directly on our website – you can choose by city or even zip code, very practical. To learn more, click here.

 

  1. Think About the Message

Don’t try to make something too long and complicate your customer’s understanding. Ideally, the messages sent in your direct mail are short, simple and to the point.

  1. Design Matters!

Once the text is ready, it’s time to put it down on paper – literally. Your direct mail graphics should have a clean look, resonate with your brand, and be easy to read. That is, avoid using too many fonts and too many colors at once. Also, if you can use images that are actually your product, not standard images, great! But if that’s not possible, you can use stock images without any problems.

 

This is the topic here that a lot of people, especially those who are unfamiliar with graphic design or diagramming software, can have problems. If you have questions about this part, you can talk to us. We have a design team in-house that can help you create your material.

 

  1. Create Promotions or Benefits

Everyone loves discounts, right? Right! So a good idea is to use your direct mail to promote a promotion coupon or some specific benefit – this is a great way to make sure your material doesn’t go unnoticed. You can also think of a multi-channel strategy that combines mailings with your social media accounts.

 

If you have a store, for example, you can give a specific discount or gift to anyone who goes to the place and show that you follow the company’s profile on Instagram. These are just a few simple ideas, but the possibilities are many – it all depends on your niche and goals.
