A leave-behind is the perfect way to create a lasting impression. This is a piece of content that you leave with a potential client upon exiting a meeting. This piece is meant to keep your company on their mind. Here are some tips to help your leave-behind achieve optimal results.
This one is fairly obvious and straight-forward. Branding makes your company recognizable and allows for you to stand out among competitors. Having unity between your website, business cards, and your leave-behind is not only encouraged; it is expected of professional companies.
A creative leave-behind’s purpose is to stick around long after your initial meeting is over. Having an interesting or useful piece will ensure that potential client keep the leave-behind and not immediately toss it in the garbage.
