Creating and strategically placing flyers is one method in which to advertise your marriage counseling business for little to no cost. Many businesses allow advertisers to leave the flyers on their countertops or hanging on public billboards. Creating a flyer requires you to make a tasteful, but luring, advertisement that you will design to persuade new clients to try out your services, while creating an advantage over competitors.
Things You'll Need
- Card stock or printing paper
Open your text processing program by double clicking the icon on your desktop. Choose a predesigned template by selecting "New" and choosing a template, or begin with a blank page. Type the main body of your flyer within the template or on a blank page.
Rearrange sentences by cutting and pasting them with your mouse. Create headlines by typing them in and using the bold or underline option to make them stand out. Use headlines such as “Marriage Counseling Services” or “Troubled Marriage?” Keep the amount of fonts to a maximum of two to avoid making a flashy and confusing flyer.
State the purpose for creating the marriage counseling flyers beneath the heading, if you are creating it to advertise a new business, new location or new hours.
Persuade the reader to attend a marriage counseling class, meeting or therapy session. Explain the benefits of the session in as few words as possible. Too much wording will turn the flyer into a pamphlet, but too little may not provide enough persuasion.
Put pictures of the business or professional images of yourself in the flyer. Click the “File” button and select “Insert Image” or click the “Insert” tab and click “Picture” to place the pictures on the flyer. Locate the picture on your computer and double click it to insert it.
Provide detailed contact information for potential clients to reach you. Offer the basics, such as your office location, hours, phone number and email address.
Tape business cards to the flyer for an additional way to offer your information. These will be convenient to carry and refer to at a later date.
Use spell check to ensure that you have not made any errors in the text. Click the “Check Spelling” button within the text processing software to do so. Check the words visually before printing, as spell check may not pick up errors that are real words. Words such as “I" instead of “eye” confuse the spell check process and may require manual correction.
When you are ready to print your flyers, look over the document once more. Load the paper into the printer and press “File” and “Print” or press the Office button and select “Print” within Microsoft Office.
