Leave a Little Something Behind: The Strategic Use of Leave-Behind Marketing Materials

In the fast-paced world of marketing, it's easy for potential customers to forget about your business after a brief interaction. But what if you could leave a lasting impression with a small, tangible piece that lingers in their minds (and maybe even on their doors)? This is the power of leave-behind marketing materials.

What are Leave-Behind Marketing Materials?

Leave-behind marketing materials are small, cost-effective printed pieces designed to be left with potential customers after an interaction. They serve as a reminder of your brand, products, or services, and provide an easy way for customers to learn more or connect with you later.

Common Examples of Leave-Behinds:

  • Door Hangers: Perfect for targeting local neighborhoods or apartment complexes, door hangers can be hung on doorknobs to promote special offers, announce new services, or simply introduce your business.

  • Rack Cards: These small, tri-fold cards are ideal for placement in high-traffic areas like restaurants, cafes, or retail stores. They can showcase your products, highlight upcoming events, or provide contact information.

  • Coasters: A unique and functional leave-behind, coasters can be used in restaurants, bars, or even left at trade shows. They offer valuable real estate to promote your brand while serving a practical purpose.

  • Business Cards with a Twist: Go beyond the standard business card by incorporating a QR code, a special offer, or a unique shape that will stand out from the rest.

The Strategic Use of Leave-Behinds

Here are some key considerations for using leave-behind marketing materials effectively:

  • Target Audience: Tailor your leave-behinds to the specific audience you want to reach. Consider demographics, interests, and what kind of information would be most valuable to them.

  • Call to Action: Every leave-behind should have a clear call to action, whether it's visiting your website, calling for a quote, or following you on social media.

  • Design Matters: Leave-behinds are small, so make sure your design is eye-catching and easy to read. Use high-quality visuals, clear fonts, and a concise message.

  • Placement is Key: Strategically place your leave-behinds where your target audience is likely to see them. Permission is key, so avoid leaving door hangers in restricted areas.

Leave a Lasting Impression

Leave-behind marketing materials are a simple yet powerful way to connect with potential customers and build brand awareness. By using them strategically, you can ensure that your message stays top-of-mind long after the initial interaction.
