I have a question for those who do kids shows. Do any of you use fliers to advertise your show?(the type that could be put into mailboxes)

I'm going to 'take the plunge' and begin performing kids shows again. I'm planning to hand out fliers in my neighborhood to get the ball rolling.

Would anybody here be willing to share their flier with me, so that I can tailor it to my own show? I'm looking for general formatting ideas here.

Please don't respond by telling me the general information that I ought to have on the flier. I'm looking for ACTUAL fliers that you've used, and that you've gotten results with.

Thanks to all in advance!

Was I wrong to ask this? I certainly hope not. If so, perhaps somebody could private message me and let me know, so I won't do it again.

You were not wrong--if people don't want to send you their info, they don't have to.

I suggest you pick up Sammy Smith's, "Sell Your Act with Brochures and Flyers" which is full of actual brochures and flyers from working pros all over the world. Sammy explains what makes each piece effective and why.

David,
I will try and send you a copy of our flier and our business card for your info - nothing to flash but plenty of colour and movement!
We have access to reasonably cheap colour printing and I reckon it is well worth it - but we do distribute the black and version in bulk as well.
Hope this helps
Kaz
Sorry, file is too large - will try to e-mail it to you later.
Cheers

Scott's right; you weren't wrong.
It's just that most flyers and brochures are (a) too large to be sent by e-mail; and (b) have too much artwork to translate properly on this board.
cheers,
