They help future customers make an informative decision
Brochures can list your product description, features and benefits all this information helps your leads to make a better buying decision. Having all the important information in hand, they can ask you relevant questions before making a purchase. This is a very effective way to educate prospects about their products and reassure their reservations.
They reflect professionalism
In professional meetings, brochures are often extended to visitors for the introduction of the company, its culture, and the variety of products it offers. Offering a brochure during a business meeting shows you as professional and organized.
Unlike presenting your products on a laptop or tablet, this is far better an option to introduce your services to a party as you can easily demonstrate your product and pitch its features directly from a brochure.
They give a clean look to your readers
Brochures are best for marketing products as they offer a simple and clean look to a design. They are neat in design and it is easier for the viewers to find relevant information about your business or products. In other words, your readers are able to scan critical information about your products and their features.
They are versatile
Brochures befit every form of marketing. Whether it is a professional meeting, industry event or a business seminar, a brochure can be used in every business setting that calls for marketing your products.

Use of negative space
Brochures can be a perfect medium to make use of negative space. Negative space in graphic designing is a space around the objects, an empty space. You can use this empty space around important information to present your products or information in a more interesting way.
A good graphic designer can make use of negative space and create amazing designs to impress the audience.
