You've decided to start your own business or offer a service, but you need a good teen job flyer to get attention. If you've never created a job or services flyer, read on!
There are two ways to create a simple business or service flyer: one is to write it by hand; the other is to create one on a computer. While a hand written one will work in a pinch, a computer created one will look more professional and in most cases, will be easier to read. If you don't have access to a computer at home, check your local library or ask to use your high school computer lab.
If you choose to hand-write a flyer, you'll need white or other light colored paper and pens with dark, waterproof ink (especially if they'll be posted outdoors). You'll also need a ruler for measuring spacing of the letters.
Create a Job Flyer
A teen job flyer will include the following information:
- The service you'll be offering
- Your personal experience – i.e. years riding horses, equipment you own (such as a lawnmower) or number of children you have experience caring for
- Your name (you may choose to only use your first name)
- How to contact you – phone number, cell phone number and/or email address (Tip: Don't use a suggestive email address, like sexychick77 if you want to land a babysitting job. Instead, create a new business-related email address, like GreatBabysitter17@domain.com ).
- Hours you're available
- Tear off tabs at the bottom of the flier (optional, but often will bring in more clients)

Where to Post Flyers

For example, post babysitting fliers at childcare centers, dog walking fliers at the vet's office or kennel, and so on.
