Get 2014 off to a flyer and kick start your yearly planning

On February 25, 2014

Once January and February are out of the way, it’s time to look at the year ahead and all the things 2014 will bring for you. An app conference, business meetings, VC pitches? No matter what you have planned for the rest of the year, it’s important to get planning as soon as possible (and now it’s a great time).

Whether you’re organising a business event around your app or thinking to attend an industry conference to network with others in your niche and promote your services, it’s never too early to start planning. The mainly three types of printed products which can boost your marketing:

  • business cards

  • flyers

  • invitations

Here’s a selection of inspiring material we found on Dribble:

Planning a networking event

When considering a party or event venue, remember to ask what the capacity is and decide whether it’s right for your event. There’s no point hiring a huge night club that holds 1000 if you’re planning to invite 100 people. After the date and location have been confirmed, it’s time to invite your guests. Make sure they get your invitations at least 30 days before the event! The style and quality of invitation gives people an indication of what the experience is going to be like, so take time choosing a suitable design and always use high quality paper.You could even design your own invitation on instantprint. You can upload your own images or artwork, or simply customise one of their existing templates to make sure your invitations look exactly how you want them to… and nobody will have an excuse not to RSVP!
