Remember the movie, The Babysitter's Club
? Most people, just like the characters in the movie, start babysitting at the age of 13 and 14 especially because they need to supplement their pocket money and also because taking care of younger siblings gives them enough impetus to be sure about their babysitting capabilities. One of the best ways to advertise for babysitting jobs is to hand out flyers at places where families frequent. This enables you to garner attention for the fledgling business that you have started on your own. But how do you design a babysitting flyer? This is where templates for flyers come into the picture. Anyone can design his or her own flyer by referring to such a template, which are easy to follow and duplicate. If you have been on the lookout for some templates that will make your job easier and simpler, in this article, we give you a template and an example which will help you understand how the flyer should be designed and formatted.
Template for Babysitting Flyers
The information that you need to give your prospective client needs to be put out neatly and the flyer has to be well framed. Always remember to add information about the babysitting rates that you are charging. Choose colors that are neutral and do not make the flyer very flashy. Keep the flyer simple and concise. Do add an attractive image and border to bring attention to the template, but do not let it overshadow the text. You can distribute these flyers at shopping malls, community centers, and other such places where families frequently come. Given below is a template that you can use to design your own flyer.
Start with a catchy phrase and if possible supplement it with an image
The rest of the flyer can have details about the babysitting service you provide. You can either have it paragraph style or align it into neat columns. The details that need to be mentioned are given below.
Another template that you can adopt is to put the info you want in the above format and then give an informally phrased introduction in brief. Remember that none of your prospective clients will want to spend too much time on the flyer, so the information should be neatly spread out for their convenience.
