The whole point of marketing is to promote your business in a positive light. When you cheap out on marketing materials, it can actually hinder business.
How Marketing Can Hinder Business
Sometimes companies need rush projects, such as something printable to hand out to prospects. So, to save time, they will hurry and have someone in-house throw something together. The whole purpose of a company brochure is to create a pleasant and memorable experience for your prospect while they get to learn about your business. Outsourcing creative work to non-professional designers could mean the project won’t get executed properly. Poorly rendered designs in marketing materials not only produces ineffective communication, it also sends subliminal messaging about your business. For example, something as simple as an unprofessional flyer or brochure can communicate that your business lacks competence. Some people may see it as cheapness and carelessness about customers’ experience with your business. Why risk your efforts not only falling short of the main objective, but completely backfiring?
