Descriptive or straight forward?

    hey guys, just wondering which you prefer and for what reasons. I'm putting together a couple different flyers for spring and i am wondering if it is better to be short and sweet with it or to elaborate a little more with the wording and such. i am usually on the more straight forward side, but i am considering being more wordy with my lawn care flyer since that is what i currently specialize in. Any comments are greatly appreciated.

    I would go with short and sweet, but catchy. The more you put on a flyer, the less anyone will want to actually read the whole thing.

    Never found that extra wording helped much at all - just the basics.

    And short paragraph or two.

    Look at some good ads in papers and magazines.

    sounds good. I think based off of your guys' responses i will keep them similar to the style i have used in the past. i'm lookin for a good bold one liner that i can use for the headliner of the flyer. any new thoughts or a previous method that worked would be great. My last years flyer was slightly too wordy. i'm gonna get 5,000 made up which is a decent amount, but i want them to atleast generate calls obviously.....thanks and happy holidays
