7 Keys to Creating the Best Pest Control Flyers

Published on August 20, 2020

When done right, pest control flyers can be one of your greatest assets for selling more work.

Since contracts dominate the pest control industry, it can sometimes become challenging and expensive to convince clients to sign up for a year.

After all, much of your revenue is going to come from annual contract packages with recurring services - as opposed to one-and-done, one-time pest control projects.

As a result, it’s important to find new ways to convince clients to sign with you.

However, after converting a client and keeping them happy, it should be a piece of cake to get them to resign with you year-after-year.

In this article, you'll discover some of the best ways to create effective pest control flyers designed to sell!

1. List Your Top Pest Control Services

Even though it's unrealistic to list all of your pest control services, it's important to at least list your specialties top-selling services.

Also, by listing these top services, you can indirectly upsell clients with services they may have been previously unaware of.

Usually, businesses will list their top 7-10 best-selling services. Although, to avoid making your pest control flyers overwhelming, it's not a good idea to list more than 10 services.

2. Justify Your Prices

The best way to justify your prices and stand out against the competition is by focusing efforts on what clients love most about your business.

Email or text surveys to identify why existing clients have chosen your business over the competition.

In your survey, ask specific questions to determine what makes your pest control business so unique. For example, is it your customer service, 100% satisfaction guarantee, or high-quality services?

Plus, you can easily automate surveys and track results using Service Autopilot.

5. Provide a Clear Call-to-Action

After building the perfect offer for new clients, it's time to create a clear CTA (i.e. Call-to-Action) to tell clients the next action you want them to make.

For example, do you want clients to call for a quote or sign up for a quote online? Be as specific as possible, and state whatever next action you want them to take after reading your pest control flyer.

Take a look at a few excellent CTAs you can use and make your own:

  • (000) 111-2222 CALL NOW!
  • www.CityPestControlService.com SCHEDULE NOW!
  • CALL (000) 111-2222 to schedule your first pest control service!

6. Focus on Creating Functional Pest Control Flyers

Remember, pest control flyers are useless to your business if they're not functional and effective.

Unfortunately, a lot of pest control businesses get carried away with overly creative flyers, featuring clashing neon colors, illegible font, and inaccessible contact information.

Keep in mind, it is possible to develop creative flyers as long as you remember to prioritize your main goal - to use flyers to sell more contracts.

Here's a look inside a brief checklist of the basics you should include in all of your pest control flyers:

  • Visible contact information
  • Clearly legible, large, simple font
  • No misspellings and is grammatically correct
  • List the main services and packages you offer
  • Simple, complementary color schemes that are easy on the eyes
  • Clean design that doesn't take away from the main CTA and overall goals
  • Avoid overusing stock photos (e.g. only use photos of YOU and YOUR work)

Oftentimes, the competition doesn't follow these essential flyer design principles. Which means, if you follow these essential elements, you'll have the power to beat them!
