Your Brochure in your hand and online

There is still nothing like a physical copy of a magazine or brochure. It is tactile, has presence it makes a statement of who you are. At Pre Press we also go a little further ensuring your brochure has an online presence so you can maximise its potential. The beauty of an online presence is that pages, products and items can be linked into your web site offering the customer faster and greater access to information.

Here is a quick checklist

The objective of your brochure is…

Decide what it is you’re trying to say and make sure it’s a message that can be obvious to all of your audience. You need to be more specific than to say ‘to tell people about our services’ or ‘to increase sales’ Being specific and focusing your aims will achieve a better brochure. The brochure is for your readership, it must engage and create and energy that ensures they come back again and again.

Define your target audience

Is it your normal demographic or are you targeting your brochure towards a specific group to see if you can stimulate business in another area? Knowing your audience is crucial before you can decide how your message will best reach them.

Choose the format of your brochure

Options vary from size, weight and type of paper, how it is folded and finished. Your budget may play a large part in your format, this especially limits the number of pages you document, but keep in mind that even a small, black and white brochure can draw plenty of attention if the message is clear.

Develop the concept

The concept will be based on the data collected about your audience. The message for your product(s) or service(s) needs to stay consistent throughout your brochure. This is where our expertise will come into play.

Its only words

The words are your chance to describe, promote and sell. Be clear and specific, try to keep it short and to the point. Powerful, well written copy can deliver a message, inform even create desire, but together with great photography can make compelling augment that will sway your audience. This is a specialist area and we can help drawing on our training and vast experience.
