  3. Brag about your company as much as you can. It is not a criminal offence. This should be assisted by positive feedbacks which will aid you while you gloat in public.
  4. Harp on all your unique selling points (USP) while you advertise. Show how your company is different from the rest. Prove your legitimacy and be persuasive about it.
  5. The flyer should also give clear instructions on what should be done after they go through the details. Incomplete information will lead to loss of interest in the potential client base.
  6. Avoid using flowery language and abbreviations. Keep it short and simple.
  7. Keep the poster neat and organised. Do not scribble contents here and there.
  8. Do not forget to familiarise yourself with the audience. Adding a photograph helps create a better association. So go ahead and click a trustworthy picture, and add character to your flyer.
