Flyers for advertising , Do they work?

SO …. do printed flyers for advertising work? This is The ultimate question, is it worth spending out money getting 10,000 flyers made up to promote in my local area.

For years, flyers have been used, to help businesses and event organisers promote their products and events. But are flyers still effective in the NEW digital age?

Official stats suggest they ARE, showing almost 50% of people read addressed mail and more than 60% read door drops.

Flyer OR leaflet?

 

flyers for advertising

A flyer is a paper advertisement, normally slightly thicker than a leaflet, leaflets normally printed on GSM around 150, and Flyers round 250gsm, both so the same process, just one is thicker than the other.

Commonly used for door drops and addressed mail . We’ve outlined the door drop and addressed mail statistics, but what do these terms mean? Here are the facts.

Addressed mail

 

  • 57% of people opened an addressed flyer when it just arrived through their letter box.
  • 8% opened it within a month
  • 5% read/looked/glanced at it and 23% did so within a month.
  • Leaflets and flyers are revisited 6 times, on average inside that household.

Door drops

 

  • 5% read/looked/glanced at an unaddressed flyer arriving through their door
  • 16% put it aside to look at later

Interesting facts the shouldn’t be overlooked. Besides their ability to get eyes on your business, product or event, flyers are also:

  • Cost effective (cheap)
  • Include’s a lot of info at your customers finger tips.
  • Can let you be creative with your design
