A good headline is key.
The headline on the front of your brochure should always include the interests and perceived problems of your targeted audience, and be followed by the solutions you can provide.
Remember the basics.
Don't ignore the basics when creating a brochure; it should include standard information, such as company name, at least two types of contact information, a logo and tagline. It should also include a headline on the front and two or three brief items outlining benefits your organization can provide. All text should be in brief, easy-to-read blocks to provide clarity for the reader. Add graphic images and photos of your product, services and/or key personnel for an eye-catching touch.
Don't confuse the reader.
Avoid the temptation to list too much information on your brochure. Too many messages will confuse your audience and dilute your main points. Focus on what interests your target audience in a succinct manner, and they'll come away with an accurate understanding of what you can offer them and how you'll do it.
Include a call to action.
Don't assume your audience will be moved to contact you or purchase your product or services after they read your well-crafted brochure. An effective brochure should include a call to action, such as an offer for a free product sample or a free estimate or gift. This will entice readers and give them an incentive to act. Sometimes people need that extra motivation to contact you.
