#TipTuesdays: Flourishes

When creating advertisements, you don’t always want a photo or graphic of something in particular; maybe just a small design element to give the promotion some life to it. Creative Outlet has the perfect solution to this problem:

Flourishes can work well as an accent: when you want your words to be the focus while still including some sort of graphic to make your promotional materials eye-catching.

There are lots of different kinds that can fit any advertisement: musical, nature, patriotic, travel, graduation, and much more. Of course, there are others that could also be used in a wide variety of contexts.

To find these adornments, head over to CreativeOutlet.com and click on “Packages” > “Ad-Builder.” Then find the “Flourishes” category under “Additional Content from Ad-Builder.”

If you have any questions, how to use them, or the Creative Outlet website, feel free to contact a sales representative at support@creativeoutlet.com for help.Title

Best Practice No. 9: Contests and Promotions

However, they are by their nature not sustainable, so they should be seen as a supplement to more fundamental, long-term changes like integrating co-op into the sales process. Simple things like a party for the local office or media property that generates the most intake forms or inquiries can amp up short term performance.
