Brochures and leaflets add to the process via ‘the souvenir principle’ – giving customers and clients a ready reference and information point, something they can pick up at any suitable or convenient time and remind themselves of how to get in touch and what is on offer.
Given the upcoming website as an online resource and contact point, this will also provide another opportunity for information gathering and the acquisition of contact details. Thus, e-books, e-zines will be a useful addition to the business armoury.
