How to create a good booklet?
A good booklet should be very precise and informative with high-quality images and intriguing content to provide emotional impact designed for the right target audience.
The message and aim of creating the booklet shouldn’t be complicated, and the tone must be in accordance with your target audience. Placing a CTA (Call To Action) in the booklet like “get a discount code” or “participate in a competition” is also recommended.
