Making Professional-Looking Brochures
 by: Florie Lyn Masarate

Brochures are for displaying services. They are also for selling an idea or service. If these purposes are put into a list, then it would be endless. The numerous ways and intentions why people have and use brochures. No matter what the reason for these brochures, the main thing is that it should be kept readable, interesting and very functional in order to become effective. It should be able to get the peoplesí attention long enough for them to read what is inside, and remain useful for them to come back for more in the future.

How can you grab the attention of the readers with just these pieces of papers?

By making your brochures look professional not only in its appearance but also in the designs, the way it is written and printed. To make them appear this way, there are considerations to think about. What are these?

Doing it with questions. Nothing like a question with an impact to grab the attention of even those who may have just sneaked a peak unto these prints. With the right question, even those who do not have the initial intention of reading them may be too aroused with curiosity to see what it is about. And maybe to have the answer to the question that they saw. A style that works most of the time is asking a question not even related to what the brochure is about. Or asking the opposite of what the implication is about. Knowing the question that will work perfectly would mean perfect attention grabbing and perfect results in your favor.

Type matters. It is the thing that people will read in your brochures so typography should be thought of and done properly. You would not want your readers to judge you as an amateur from the way you have done your writing. Or giving them the impression that the services you offer may have that same careless and irresponsible quality. Writing out words that are seldom used or incomprehensive will not work either. Some may not be able to grasp what it is you are trying to say or may not have no idea whatsoever basing from the words that you are using. Just the basic understandable words that are also professional will do just fine.

Making brochures appear professional not only reflects back to you. It also implies the time and effort you spent on checking from the most important to the least important details. To sum it all up, these brochures should cater to the different kinds of people who might chance upon them and take interest.
