Creating beautiful and effective business flyers doesn't have to be a challenge when you use Placeit's flyer creator. 

Creating beautiful and effective business flyers

The Placeit flyer creator, also known as the flyer generator, is a terrific app that offers one of the largest collections of flyer templates on the internet and makes it easy for large and small businesses to create perfect business flyers quickly and easily. Let me show you how. 

How to Make a Business Flyer (Using a Flyer Generator)

Let’s say you work in real estate. You have a gorgeous house you'd like to put up for sale, and you need to make your own flyer to get potential buyers interested. Well, all you need to do is follow these simple steps to discover how to make a flyer online in a matter of minutes.

Step 1

Go to Placeit and, under the Design tab in the header, select Flyer. You will see tons of wonderful flyer templates for all sorts of purposes.

Step 2

To find ones that are designed specifically for real estate, type "real estate" in the search bar at the top of the page and hit Enter.

Now you will see a number of terrific flyer ideas and templates. Look through the selections until you find a template that appeals to your taste.

Step 3

When you see a flyer design template that you like and that is appropriate for your purpose, click on it. This will open up the online flyer creator.

Step 4

You can now customise your flyer creator template as much or as little as you like.

Starting with the controls on the left and working your way down from the top, you can add your text to various parts of the image. For example, I changed the name of the real estate company at the top of the flyer template from "Best Homes" to "Dream Homes". I kept the "For Sale" text but changed the dates, times, address, and telephone number. You can also change the font styles and colour here to match your brand.

Step 5

Moving to the controls on the right and working from the top, you can change the colours of the bottom bar, the left banner, and the background.

In our example, I left the colour of the bottom bar and left banner, but changed the background colour to a brighter shade of blue that’s consistent with my imaginary business's brand identity.

Step 6

Moving down the controls, you can now change the photo that appears on your flyer by choosing one of the photos provided or uploading your own. I chose one of the gorgeous photos to represent the building for sale.

Step 7

Moving to the next controls, you can now change the logo that appears on your flyer by choosing one of the icons provided or uploading your own. For our real estate business, I uploaded the business house logo, which you can now see at the top of the flyer template. 

You can move around any and all elements of your design as needed, and if you decide to go with the original layout, you can hit the Reset Layout button to return to the default layout.

Scrolling down the page, you have two additional options. If you get stuck while you’re customising your design, you can try one of the presets on offer. They are all different versions of the flyer generator template you chose, and they can help you see how your template would look with different settings applied.
