Rack cards are an effective marketing tool. A simple, bold message on the front of a rack card will grab eye contact from across the room. Once a customer gets to know your business a little better by reading further, they won’t be able to get you off their mind, and won’t want to wait to call you.
Spas are one type of business that uses rack cards to advertise specials and services in a compact, attention-getting form. Simply feature a relevant message.
A massage for Valentine’s Day? Yes, please. How about a couple’s massage? Great idea. Maybe add in a box of chocolates to sweeten the offer.

Holiday sales are already all around us. It isn’t even Thanksgiving and we are surrounded by companies telling us they have the best holiday deals. They continually emphasize that they are the best place for Christmas shopping. That may be true, but I get tired of seeing them. Don’t you?
When there are so many sales coming at us at once, whether we intend to or not, we start to tune them out. At some point, we can’t, or don’t want, to take them in anymore.

October is already here! That means Halloween isn’t too far away either.
Over the weekend, I pulled out my Halloween décor and did some brainstorming about what my puppy is going to dress up as this year. If you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday.
It’s time to prepare for Halloween! Take advantage of the spirit of the holiday by incorporating it into your marketing plan. Have a fun Halloween event for your clients or hold a Halloween-inspired sale for customers. It doesn’t matter if your business actually sells anything Halloween. Just have fun with it. If you get creative, you can find a way to pull in the theme.
Remember when you were in college? Those were some of the best days of my life. Wouldn’t you agree? Staying out until 4 a.m., dragging yourself to class in the morning, then doing it all again. You were constantly surrounded by friends and fun things to do. Naps were a personal friend.
Now think back even further. What made you pick that school? No matter where you first heard about it, you had to scope it out for yourself.
There are so many reasons a school is right or wrong for each person. College websites have too much information to start out. Something you can hold in your hand, something that gives you the facts you are looking for, is exactly what you need. In the sea of college mail and email that flood your life during the second half of high school, the best brochures give you exactly what you’re looking for.
Brochures are most broadly used to give an overview of a company. They include space for photos and detailed highlights. Brochure printing is a great form of advertising because it contains just enough information to spark interest, as well as some contact details to find out more.
A brochure easily gives your company presence when you can’t be there yourself. It’s available for potential clients to pick up and take with them. They can keep it around until they need it at a later date.
Many factors contribute to the making of a successful and beautiful brochure including its layout, design, colors, and font. It should be unique enough to stand out, with only a glance at a rack of brochures.
Here are some tips to keep in mind for creating the best brochure possible.
