Flyers Aren’t Dead!

I began to get involved in student activities in college, where I had to design more than my share of flyers.  This experience served me well in the jobs I held after college, as I got to promote more than my share of events.  Since web sites and the Internet came along, however, I thought my flyer-designing skills would go the route of the dinosaur.  Then I discovered a cool site that makes flyers relevant for the 21st century.

Smore helps you design and publish beautiful online flyers instantly.  Their design interface is very easy to use, starting with your flyer’s purpose.  You can choose to promote an event, a business, something for sale, a news bulletin, a class, or other.  Then, you select a theme from a list of themes and preview them in seconds with your content, all online.  No software installation is needed.  With their drag and drop editing, you can arrange your content with ease.  And, you’re not limited to just text and images, but can also include videos, tweets, products and reviews, as well.

You can see the flyer I created here:

If you’re like me and you didn’t like the default template colors, fonts and the background image, Smore gives you the option to change each item, even after you have published the design. Although you don’t have the full ability to change the fonts, upload a background image and fine-tune the colors, you can readily select from Smore’s default options.

Once you have completed your flyer, it is easy to share via social networks or email or embed it into your own web site.  On your page’s dashboard, you can also adjust the page’s settings to turn off social comments and sharing buttons, and even use your own custom domain. You can also tweak privacy settings to make sure it isn’t indexed by search engines or in contrast, have the page made “optimized to get as many visitors as possible”.

With their smart inights analytics, you can learn what works and what doesn’t to increase traffic and page effectiveness, as well as track real user actions like phone calls to a number on the page, sales, downloads and emails. Smore pages also work flawlessly on your smartphone and tablet.

Currently in beta, Smore is free to use.
