DOOR TO DOOR LEAFLET DISTRIBUTION

This is the classic way to get a leaflet and flyer into the hands of your customers… via their letterboxes! Research by the Direct Marketing Association shows that 79% of people keep, pass on, read or glance at leaflets and flyers delivered to their door.

Solo, also referred to as Solus or a similar variation on the word, is the ultimate, but also the most expensive, form of door-to-door leaflet distribution. This is because the recipient will only have your leaflet or flyer in their hand when they go to see what’s just been popped through their letterbox.

*HAND TO HAND FLYER & LEAFLET DISTRIBUTION SERVICE*

WE take your leaflets and flyers out on the streets, and thrust them right into the hands of potential customers!

OUR savvy operators and friendly distribution staff will ideally give a little sales pitch or answer questions – and hopefully engage with people – when they hand over your leaflet too. Better still, will they be wearing a T-shirt, coat or baseball cap with your brand on them?

Of course, location and timing are all-important here.

WE target busy shopping centres and high streets at the weekend or lunchtime, hang outside public transport hubs during the commuter rush hours, make sure your leaflets are going to be handed out at popular shows, festivals, sports events and other special occasions where big numbers of people will be visiting. All these are great places to start.

OUR creative approach and style in spreading your leaflets and flyers will surely attract more clients and patronage to your business.

OUR well trained and experienced smart skaters equally target areas where lots of people are likely to be impatiently waiting in long queues? This is where your leaflet and flyer could actually eliminate their boredom of queuing up for a few crucial moments.

Remember, anything that gives you an edge will take you a step closer to grabbing your customer’s attention and landing that crucial sale. That’s something every company knows is particularly difficult to achieve in this current economic climate.

TRACK YOUR SUCCESS

Once you’ve distributed your leaflets and flyers, make sure you keep track of the response rate from customers. This can be achieved in many ways, such as:

- Including a special offer for a limited time only

- Featuring a buy one, get one free or money off discount coupon

- Adding a special QR barcode on the flyer/leaflet that links to a particular page or image on your website

- Inviting customers to complete a survey or registration process that asks them the “where did you hear about us?” type of question

- Was there an increase in the number of phone calls, e-mails, web visits or pop-in customers in the days following your leaflet or flyer going out?

- Add a unique URL only known and accessible by leaflet recipients. Incentive a customer to visit with a special offer via the link.

- Add fun, quirky comments to encourage recipients to take a second look and increase the likelihood of retention. One line you could use is ‘Don’t throw me away, you may need me someday’.

*Business-to-Business Flyer Distribution*

Depending on the products and services you are advertising, delivering directly to other businesses may make more sense than distributing to residential households & commuters.

There are two main approaches to consider:

Members of staff: Targeting your leaflets at people who work in a particular industry or match a certain demographic.

People using services: Distributing leaflets to public places like libraries, doctor’s surgeries and sports centres.

Customers: Sharing your leaflets with businesses you expect your target audience to use – i.e. car garages, record shops or hair salons.

The power of the noticeboard:
Your leaflets and flyers could end up on an office or waiting room wall. On average, leaflets and flyers are revisited by someone 3.6 times
– according to the
Direct Marketing Association.

5 FIBER-RICH FRUITS IN YOUR DIET TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

*FIBER RICH FOODS*

When it comes to losing weight, we all are stressed about protein, or carb intake and often overlook the amount of fiber we consume. Surprisingly, fiber is as much important as other nutrients required to shed kilos and come to shape.

If we put in simple words, fiber is referred to as carbohydrates that cannot be digested by our gut, depending on whether it is soluble or insoluble. Fiber is filling and provides satiety after a meal, which prevents you from nibbling on unhealthy food items. It is also beneficial for people having high blood pressure and suffering from constipation.
Men are recommended to have 38 grams of fiber daily, while for women it is 25 grams. So, if you are trying to lose weight, increasing your fiber intake can help.

*Here Are 5 Fibre-Rich Fruits That You Can Add In Your Diet.*

*1 - ORANGES*
Orange is a rich source of vitamin C, which helps to boost immunity. The fruit also contains thiamine, folate, and potassium. Orange is considered a negative calorie fruit that means that it contains fewer calories than what our body requires to burn it.
Fiber content: Half Orange contains 2.4grams of fiber.

*2 - PEARS*
Most people think that Apple is the most fiber-rich fruit. However, pear contains more fiber than the red fruit. Pear is also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K, copper, magnesium. It is made up of about 84 per cent water and contains a low amount of calories.
Fiber content: 5.5 grams in 1 medium-sized pear

*3 - BANANA*
Banana can be another healthy addition in your weight loss diet plan. It is a good source of nutrients, including vitamin B6 and potassium. Banana does not directly lead to weight loss, but the fruit is quite helpful in reducing bloating and keeping you fuller for a longer period.
Fiber content: 3.1 grams in a medium-sized banana.

*4 - GUAVA*
Guava is another great source of dietary fiber. The seeds of this fruit are excellent laxatives that help in easy bowel movement. Packed with proteins, vitamins and fibre, guava helps to manage your weight by regulating your metabolism.
Fiber content: 00g of guava can provide around 5g of fiber

*5 - MANGO*
The famous summer fruit is high in fiber content and is low in calories. It is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B6. Mango is also rich in beta carotene, which is believed to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer
Fiber content: 5.4 grams in one medium-sized ripe mango.

NIGERIA 2023 GENERAL ELECTIONS

2023 and voters’ apathy

By Tayo Ogunbiyi
06 August 2022 | 6:55 am

Voters check for details of eligible voters pasted on the wall at a polling station during the Anambra State governorship election at Isuofia, southeast Nigeria, on November 6, 2021. – Voters in the restive southeastern Nigerian state of Anambra go to the polls on November 6, 2021, amid a massive police deployment, in a key test of electoral credibility ahead of a presidential race less than 18 months away. More than 30,000 police have been deployed to Anambra, the heart of a region where an outlawed separatist movement has been blamed for a string of attacks on police and election offices.

The recently concluded governorship election in Osun State has once again brought to fore the issue of voters’ apathy in the country. According to reports, out of the over 1,955,657 registered voters in the state, only a little over 800,000 turned out on Election Day.

A similar scenario played out in the last Local Government election in Lagos State where not up to 18% of the total registered voters actually voted during the election.

In the 2019 Governorship election in Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu won by 739,445 votes. Whereas a total number of 6,570,291 voters registered for the election, the overall number of voters that took part in the poll was not up to a million.

Democracy is about the choice that the people make. Of all the various definitions of democracy, the most universally famous is the one that refers to it as the government of the people by the people and for the people.

The implication of the definition is that the people give impetus to democracy. In essence, you cannot have democracy without the people. The people set democracy in motion. However, in Nigeria, the people do not seem to understand the democratic power they wield.

The word ‘apathy’, which has its source in Greek, plainly means ‘without feelings’. According to Victor Marie Hugo, French poet, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic Movement, ‘the apathetic are alive but without feelings, so they are not living. They are the living dead’.

Therefore, in line with Hugo’s line of thought, voters’ apathy simply refers to the insensitivity of the people towards the electoral process, particularly voting.

According to a statistics from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, only about 35% of the over, 70million who registered to vote in the 2011 general elections really participated in the voting process. This implies that over 65% of registered voters did not vote.

This dangerous trend must be a source of serious concern to all genuine stakeholders in the polity.

This growing trend has grievous implications on the prospect of democracy in the country. For one, it ensures that that leaders who attain political power via the votes of the minority rule over the majority.

Second, because they do not get to power through the votes of the majority, they tend to espouse self-seeking agenda.

Third, it casts serious aspersion on the kind of democracy we practice.

Furthermore, it makes it a bit hypocritical for those who did not turn out to vote to criticize those who were elected through the same process that they shunned. As it is often said, ‘you cannot eat your cake and have it’.

Many factors are responsible for voters’ apathy in the country. Some are of the view that their votes do not really count. They believe, either rightly or wrongly, that the outcome of most elections are pre-determined.

In addition, some believe that the electoral process is replete with violence, while some consider the political class undeserving of their time because of their perceived insincerity to electoral promises.

Equally, especially, in the case of Local Council elections, many are of the view that that tier of government does not really do much to deserve anyone’s trouble.

However, irrespective of the validity of the reasons, as highlighted above, it is counterproductive for the people to shun polls in a democracy. Some people gave their lives for the democracy that we enjoy today. It is, therefore, a great injustice to their memories, if this culture of voters’ apathy continues.

If democracy is to truly be the government of the people and for the people, the people must own the process from the beginning to the end. Active involvement in the political process signifies that everyone is a critical stakeholder, having the best interest of the country at heart. It is a practical demonstration of being a responsible citizen.

To lure the people back to the polls, elected political leaders at all levels, should not take the electorates for granted. It is sheer treachery for an elected leader to ignore his/her electoral promises while in power.

Compatriots who ignore all difficulties in order to participate in voting ought to be given a better deal. In addition, to give credibility to the electoral process, the practice of turning elections into a ‘do or die’ affair should be discouraged.

Additionally, INEC, political parties, the civil society, the press and other stakeholders should give greater attention to voters’ education as well as other enlightenment campaigns that could re-enact the confidence of the people in the electoral process.

It is important to stress that the worst illiterate is the political illiterate who take no part in the political process. Sadly, he does not understand that everything depends on political decisions.

Unfortunately, the politically dormant even prides himself on his political ignorance by openly sticking out his chest that he hates politics. He does not know that from his political apathy comes the prostitute, the abandoned child, the robber and worst of all, corrupt and incompetent public officials.

Democracy is best defended by those it is meant for; the people. But for democracy to really serve the interest of the people, they must respect all democratic norms and principles. Today, we all look at some of the advanced democracies of the world with envy.

The truth, however, is that they have achieved greatness through the strengthening of grassroots democracy. Of course, there is no other way through which democracy could be strengthened other than involvement of the majority in democratic process.

Ogunbiyi is Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Ministry of Information & Strategy, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
