The Internet has changed the way individuals use their computers for desktop publishing. Previously, designing a business flyer required you to invest in design and graphic software. Today, you can use the Internet to create and make your own business flyer online. Generally, such designing can be accomplished using free Internet-based programs.
Decide on the focus of your business flyer. Consider the message you wish to communicate to potential customers. For example, focus on why your company is superior to its competitors and why a consumer should buy your products instead of someone else's.
Draw a mock design of your business flyer on a scratch piece of paper. It is good to have a rough draft to work off of when you start designing your business flyer online.
Consider design and graphical elements that you wish to include in your business flyer. For example, you will probably want to publish your corporation's logo, as well as include photographs and colors. Each of these design elements will affect the emotion and message of your business flyer. Quirky colors may be fun, but they may not be professional. Ensure the overall look of your business flyer communicates the primary message you want to convey.
Go to Google Docs, a free word processing suite created by search engine giant Google. Find a link in the References section.
Click "New" in the top left-hand corner of the web-based software program. Select "Document" from the drop-down menu.
Enter the text you wish to enter into your business flyer. Customize the font, font size and color to match the relative feel and look you created in the rough copy of your business poster. Click "Insert" and insert photos, business logos, and other graphical elements.
Review your business poster and further customize the flyer until you are satisfied with how it looks. Remember that more information and design elements is not necessarily better. The more you try to cram into a business flyer, the more the reader has to focus on. A simple, basic and straight-forward business flyer is typically better than one that is trying to say multiple things.
Print the business flyer you designed online and distribute as needed. Post the flyer around your town and office building, and mail it to friends, family and business associates. You may also want to include your business flyer when shipping products to customers, or when sending invoices after making a sale.
Consider outsourcing your business flyer printing needs to a third-party online service. Various online eCommerce companies allow individuals to upload flyer files and graphics from their personal computer to the company's website. The company then ships the flyers to a shipping address that you specify.
