Welcome to Instant Brochures, your do-it-yourself guide to creating brochures that get read, and then get the phone ringing.
Once you’ve been through this guide, you should know exactly how to put together powerful brochures that make your prospect want to take ACTION. More importantly, you’ll have a selection of new brochures to start testing.
You’ll discover that putting together a great brochure doesn’t take great writing skills, nor does it require any knowledge of graphic design. With a little bit of common sense and the info you’ll find in this guide, you’ll be able to create a killer brochure in no time, and it will WORK.
This guide isn’t about making brochures that look pretty and artistic - the type of brochures you’ll create as a result of this guide will SELL for you.
In my seminars, I’ve often advised people to burn their brochures altogether. I have actually demanded that one of the clients I was consulting directly with get rid of all of his brochures.
There was a good reason - most business owners and salespeople use brochures as a way
NOT to sell. Instead of doing the hard work and trying to close the sale on the spot, they just say ‘here, take one of our brochures’ and expect that the customer will come back.
As you’d know yourself, most customers never come back. They keep shopping around until someone gets motivated enough to actually sell them something. Often, this motivation comes from knowing that the face-to-face sale is the final contact - there are no brochures to fall back on. If the customer walks out, they’re gone for good.
Handing out a brochure is really a way of saying ‘I’m not sure how to win your business, but if I give you this, I can feel like I’ve tried my best, and that there is still a chance you’ll buy’.
In these circumstances, brochures SHOULD be burned.
Having said that, a brochure can work as a powerful sales tool, when it’s used the right way. The trick is knowing how to construct your brochures so they actually encourage someone to BUY.
This is what Instant Brochures is all about.
