5 Reasons Why a Flyer Distribution Service can help you sell out your next San Francisco Bay event

1 It’s Easy To Create & Print Flyers And Posters: You know better than anyone else why your event is unique. You can create a simple flyer or poster highlighting these reasons using Photoshop or GIMP and free design templates, or, if you prefer, you can hire a local design company to create your flyers for you.  

2 Printing Flyers And Posters Is Very Inexpensive: The cost of advertising on Radio, TV and in newspapers continue to increase while viewership and readership continue to decline. A professional looking flyer or poster can be created very inexpensively but still attract people to your event. 

3 Flyers And Posters Can Be Distributed In Many Ways: Flyers can be posted on bulletin boards, hung in store fronts, left in cafes and community centers, handed out at events, and distributed door- to- door. The distribution options are endless, and so are the possibilities for people to discover your event. 

Flyers and posters leave a lasting, intimate impression: In this age of constant exposure to digital marketing on screens, tangible print materials like flyers and posters really stand out. Posters in shop windows and on community and college bulletin boards are seen repeatedly by locals who frequent the area. Postcards dropped in popular cafes and community centers are easy to pick up, take home, and pin to the fridge as a reminder of an attractive event. And flyers handed out on the street by a friendly and enthusiastic distribution team leave potential customers with a lasting impression of personal connection along with the event details.

Flyers And Posters Are Easy To Duplicate: When you invest in designing a flyer or poster, you get to keep that design template forever. So if a flyer performs particularly well you can always save time and money by repurposing it for a future event. This works especially well if you host the same event on a repetitive basis – in that case, all you need to do is change the date.

Can I hand out flyers on my own?

Of course you can do the flyer distribution yourself. However, handing out flyers takes time and effort. Alternately you can save time by hiring a flyer distribution service to do this for you, leaving you with plenty of energy to focus on the aspects of event planning that you enjoy best.
