A good flier can be crucial to the success of your babysitting business. You must choose appropriate images, write a clear and compelling message that includes any relevant professional information and include a way for clients to contact you easily.
- Choose images
Choose a bold, eye-catching image for the center of your flyer. Browse online image and clip art databases for an appropriate free image, or create your own. If you cannot create a color image, opt for paper in a bright color. You want your flyer to draw prospective clients' eyes and to stand out from any other flyers or handbills.
- Write a great header
Choose a header that tells prospective clients what your flyer is all about. Write the name of your babysitting business or use a title related to babysitting such as, "#1 Babysitter in Downtown".
- Include your professional information
Include all the pertinent information a prospective client needs to decide whether to hire you. Write your contact information, pay rate, availability and qualifications. Be sure to list any safety training, such as CPR or first-aid. End this section by stating that you have references available upon request.
- Make tear-away tabs
Finally, create tear-away tabs at the bottom of your flyer. Include your name, phone number and e-mail address on each tab. Write the text on these tabs so that it's perpendicular to the rest of the flyer. Make sure your font is readable at a distance, then separate the tabs for easy removal using scissors.
