Why? Printed Marketing materials completed correctly provide a highly effective and valuable tool for the company and a great resource for the prospective customer. Each letter of the word "PRINT” truly defines the value it can bring to life.
P for Purpose –
Printed Collateral is revealed by neuroscience and eye tracking research specialists that print is a relatively cognitive media. If a printed product or service brochure is designed correctly it makes it easier for the audience to grasp the necessary details or complex messaging. Additionally, gaining any brand relevancy is more receptive to the reader on print than any other mediums. You can dramatically improve the effectiveness of your presentations by using literature as a visual aid. It has a purpose.
R for Real –
Printed materials provide a tangible sense of touch which creates an instant connection between the reader and the paper it’s on. The pure physicality of print can give you an advantage when trying to build lasting business relationships. Print creates a level of credibility and trust with what they can touch. Well-crafted print material, such as brochures, inserts, business cards and pocket folders helps a business or their product present more "REAL”. The mere act of securing ink on paper fulfills a commitment to your prospective customers that you are serious to hold permanent place in their lives.
I for Interaction –
By design Printed Marketing Collateral should be developed to provide enough details to ignite interest but not enough to gain the opportunity to interact with the prospective customer to share the closing details and finalize the sale.
