Physical promotional materials like business cards, postcards, and flyers can play a critical role in attracting new members to a pipe band beginner program. These materials need to be in the sporrans and wallets of all of your members, so they can spread the word about your beginner program.
Additionally, they can be handed out at performances, local events, music stores, or schools. They are a tangible reminder for potential members to check out your program, and a clear call-to-action (and hopefully a QR Code) directing them to the "join us" page on your website increases the likelihood they will follow through.
Using custom designs for these materials can increase their appeal and effectiveness. That's where Canva comes in.
Canva and Canva Templates:
Canva is a popular online design tool that allows users to create a wide variety of visual content, including business cards, postcards, and flyers. It's user-friendly and offers a range of customization options to match your band's aesthetic and brand. In most cases, it's free to use.
Canva templates are pre-designed layouts that you can customize with your own text, images, and logos. These templates can provide a professional-looking starting point for your design, which can save time and ensure your final product looks polished.
We have assembled business card, post card, and flyer templates that you can use. These can be easily customized with details about your program, your logo, images, and the URL for your "join us" page.
