What is Flyerlo?
What is Flyerlo? Flyerlo is an online marketplace for flyer distribution services. All you have to do is create an account with Flyerlo. Then you can create ad spots where you want flyers to be posted at your laundromat. When local, regional, and national advertisers browse laundromat places, they can review spots they like. Then they can buy one of your advertisement spots and submit their flyers. All you have to do is post their flyers at your laundromat and get paid. It doesn’t take much of your time at all.
You might ask, where do I post flyers? Here are some spot ideas where you want flyers to be posted and seen by your laundromat customers.
Seven Advertisement Spot Ideas
1) Community Board
Many laundromat places have a community board. Customers and noncustomers from the community post their information there. This will be an excellent place to sell your ad spot and post flyers. Depending on your board’s size, you can have several spots on a community board.
There are some places where flyers are posted on dryer machines. This is an excellent way to capture customers’ attention. Advertisers might pay a bit more for this spot than the community board. One spot on each dryer. If you have 20 dryers, you can charge your clients for 20 spots or break it down into two different flyers, ten spots each, so you get two clients.
3) Entrance Doors
This is an excellent ad location where people walk in to do their laundry and then walk out after finishing it. You can sell this spot and ensure the flyer is on the front and back. Your customers will see this ad when they walk in and walk out, so you might want to charge more for this location.
Windows are an excellent flyer spot, but posters might be a better choice. Be sure to have a poster on the front and the back and charge it at a premium rate. Of course, this depends on the type of windows at your laundromat locations. Whatever makes sense for you. If you have big windows, commercial size, then posters would be ideal.
5) Vending Machines
Customers love to walk up to the vending machines and look at snacks or beverages. This would be an excellent flyer spot, but we wouldn’t advise a standard size like 8.5 by 11. You don’t want to block the view when customers look at snacks and beverages. You need to make sales from the vending machines, right? For this spot, you should choose a smaller flyer size.
Believe it or not, this spot is highly desirable and practical. Restroom ads can be posted on the restroom walls at your laundromat and are visible to your customers.
7) Sitting Tables
Customers tend to sit at the tables and wait for their laundry. This is another excellent spot where you can leave flyers on each table for customers to take home. Do not put flyers on the folding tables. I am sure you’d agree with me on that one. Customers might find it annoying.
The Best Part About Using Flyerlo
You set your terms for your advertisement spots. Yes, seriously. It’s your laundromat, not Flyerlo. Flyerlo provides a platform for you to use.
You decide how much your spot is worth. Again, this depends on the placement. Not all placements are created equally. Before selling your spots, start at a lower cost, and you will see how it goes. If it becomes very demanding, you can increase the price.
You decide the placement where you want to sell ad spots at your laundromat. You don’t have to do all seven-spot ideas. You can pick one or a few. Whatever makes sense for you and your laundromat.
Printing the flyers depends on the type of printer you have at your laundromat office or your home office. Most printers produce standard sizes, where they print 8.5 x 11. Some printers have options for smaller or larger paper sizes. You can even buy a printer that prints a poster size if you plan to sell spots for your windows.
4) Material Types
Most printers print in black. You can charge clients extra if it prints in color or a bigger size, like a poster size. You decide what paper quality and the quantity of print depending on what you decide for each ad spot. Again, you decide what materials, such as paper quality, the toner in black or color, or both, and the paper size.
You set up the advertisement’s length, let it be daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, or annually whenever it makes sense for you. If you come down every Friday to check and ensure your laundromat is cleaned, then the ideal duration would be weekly. When you’re at your laundromat place, you take off the old flyer and then post the new flyer. In some cases, your clients will request you for a month-long advertisement, and they will pay more for it.
6) Your Rights
You reserve the right to decline any inappropriate advertisement to you and your customers. You don’t want any ads that your loyal, regular, and new customers will find offensive. Never compromise your principles and if advertisers get mad at you, let them be. It’s your laundromat and reputation; the ultimate decision is always yours. You can set your expectations in your ad spots too. Let advertisers know if your laundromat place is a strong family orientation.
Your goal is to maximize ad sales at your laundromat, and remember you decide your terms the way you want them. If you realize that you have too many ad spots at your laundromat and they don’t look good, it’s okay to make mistakes. You can always change your spots by reducing the number of flyers you post. Your laundromat’s appearance and cleanliness are essential to remember when creating your advertisement spots.
Disclosure for Advertisers
What information are advertisers looking for when they decide to buy your spots?
1) Foot Traffic
If you know how many customers come to your place, include the information on Flyerlo, so advertisers know what your foot traffics looks like daily or during the week and on the weekends.
Advertisers care about the number of customers coming to your place and know their ads will expect hits and misses. Share the stats in your ad spots so advertisers can know how many customers come to your place and how many people they can expect to see their ads.
2) Laundromat Hours
Advertisers might want to know how long your laundromat is open. If it’s 24 hours laundromat, then say it here. If each day has different store hours, please list each day with open and close times.
3) Laundromat Location
Advertisers may want to know where your laundromat is located, so include the address or name of the city.
4) Laundromat Name
Advertisers need to know the name of their business.
5) The Number of Dryers and Washers
In some cases, advertisers might want to know how many machines you have at your laundromat. They might offer you something and request a custom order for a “special spot.” You never know.
Please mention the above information in your ad spots so local, regional, and national advertisers will know more about your laundromat place.
