Distributing flyers online is good for your business. This is because our world in the last decade has moved from being analogue to digital.
Yes, there are millions of people out there who are still analogue in their private, professional and business lives.
E-commerce is the now the new word in town and with internet there are no geographical boundaries or restrictions whatsoever for people who desire to distribute their flyers to their targeted market.
Standing at a street corner or physically going from one place to the other to distribute your flyers is fast becoming outdated, limited, restrictive and may not guarantee success.
Distributing your flyers online also may not guarantee immediate success in term of closing a business deal or attracting members to your church, mosque or temple.
If you are running a church, mosque, restaurant, accounting firm, health maintenance outfit, media, school, media, accounting firm, stock broking firm, provision shop, bank, it is advisable to switch from analogue to online ways of telling the world about your product or service.
Nigeria for instance has an estimated population of 180 million people. The Nigerian Communications Commission says there are 71 million Nigerians having access to the internet through their phones and computers.
McKinsey & Company says internet subscriber base for Nigeria rose from 48.2 million in June 2013 to 67.4 million in June 2014, representing a 40 % density penetration.
For people distributing their flyers online, these statistics will benefit them. With the global reach, unlimited nature of the internet and lack of boundaries separating sellers from buyers, it is good business decisions for flyer distributors.
But, trust is a huge word most people are not comfortable with. Even with these encouraging statistics, about 95% people or firms in our country still prefer the analogue ways of distributing their flyers in order to create public awareness for their product or service.
In public places in Lagos, south-west Nigeria, flyer distributors are seen everyday giving out their flyers to people. Most of these flyers are dropped on the ground as soon as they are collected.
Yet, with just one of the flyers scanned and spread online, millions of people all over the world could get to see and read what you have to offer and then make up their minds whether or not they want to deal with you.
It is cheaper, global and unlimited to go online instead of physical contacts. Reflect on this.
