It is always important to promote any business off and online. Customers do love to have you something they can touch, feel and ultimately trust.
In the digital world we now live in, print is still greatly important which online formats can’t compete with. For example, if a flyer with a special offer is posted through a potential customer’s door, it will likely sit on in their kitchen or table for a few days for them to ponder. An email with a special offer may sit in a customer’s inbox for much longer or is quickly deleted or ignored.
In the food & hospitality industry, print promotional materials remains highly important in restaurants. Here are some great ideas for how you can use print to promote your business.
