Why Print is an Effective Way to Inform and
Influence Visitors
Printed brochures are a fantastic way to promote your business to visitors

Here’s why:
Brochures are like your most effective salesperson. They are always there, influencing
right at the point of decision – just when visitors are actively considering where to go, what
to do, see and enjoy. Well-designed brochures sit in prominent display racks, and proudly
present your product or service to visitors

High Conversion: Because visitor brochures are usually displayed within a relatively short
distance of your product or service, they are more effective in promptly converting ‘lookers
to bookers’ and to winning business generally

Brochures are non-aggressive, but powerful. In an age where consumers are
over-saturated with emails, tweets, pop-ups and notifications, brochures are more personal

With brochures, the visitor has the option to choose yours and to read it now or read it later

When they do select it from a display stand, the very act of choosing means they are more
likely to visit, engage or buy from you

Brochures allow you present just the right amount of information, attractively and
creatively. You can tell your story in a well-designed brochure, precisely as you want to. You
can provide the compelling reasons to visit or buy and you can end with a call to action. You
can also include coupons, discounts or provide other incentives to prompt immediate

Why Print is an Effective Way to Inform and Influence Visitors
Dependable, always available and easy read. Visitors are not always online. Even if they
have a smart phone with them, brochures are easy to pick up and easy to read, at any time or
anywhere. They are not dependent on digital connections. In a recent survey, 81% said they
prefer to read print on paper, rather than online

Tangibility: A printed brochure makes your product or service more tangible to visitors. They
are an ever-present physical reminder of your business

Shareability: Brochures are easy to pass around and to share with friends and family. And,
when they are shared, it’s often a form of endorsement and can positively influence the
actions of those it is shared with

Engagement: Because brochures and maps are made for sharing; concierges, front desk
staff, and travel advisors use them to engage, inform and guide visitors. In a recent study by
Visitor International (in the USA and Europe) hospitality professionals overwhelmingly
favoured the use of print media to assist guests in their properties

Engaging more senses and heightening awareness: Brochures are tactile and engage far
more senses than online. Print engages sight, touch, sound (turning the page), and even
smell (fresh print). This means the impact of your message is heightened and it is also
retained in the visitor’s memory for longer. It’s also why print is powerful in presenting and
reinforcing your brand

Neuroscience says: Neuroscience studies support the view that reading on-screen tends to
be faster and more superficial, while reading on paper is deeper and more considered

Digital readers are also more prone to on-line distractions, while brochure readers are more
focused, absorb information better and have better recall. They are therefore better
positioned to quickly make an informed decision to purchase

Brochures are extremely cost-effective, particularly relative to the business they deliver

Print and distribution costs are very competitive, and the price per brochure keeps going
down as the brochure volume goes up

Combining print and digital marketing: brochures and digital media can easily
complement each other. Brochures can help drive traffic to your website or social media
pages. QR codes on your brochure enable visitors to link directly via mobile phone to the
appropriate page on your website where you can present more information or incentives to
visit or buy

FACT: Having a well-designed brochure, professionally distributed and
displayed, will ALWAYS give you an edge against competition that relies on
electronic communications alone. The Members of Visitor International (The
International Association of Visitor Information Providers) can help you place
your brochures in front of visitors and guide visitors to you
